WINTER STORMS

OUR FACEBOOK PAGE WILL BE UPDATED WHENEVER A CANCELLATION NEEDS TO BE MADE. PLEASE CHECK HERE FIRST ON STORMY DAYS.

You may also phone the Academy after 2pm on stormy days to check if classes will still be running (a message will play on the voice mail). Wednesday and Thursday morning and Saturday families should call after 8am. Calls will not be made to individual families by the Academy, but emails will be sent when possible. Dancers are welcome to make-up their missed lesson by attending a class of similar standard on another day – please check with Miss Knapp if you wish to make-up the class and are unsure of which class to attend.

MINIMUM NUMBER OF CLASSES/YEAR:

Students taking full year classes will be guaranteed a minimum of 28 weeks of classes per year, as this is what our tuition fees are based on. In fact, most classes will receive approximately 31-33 classes/year of instruction. There are no refunds or official make-up classes for classes cancelled due to weather, holidays, studio event cancellations, or extenuating circumstances, unless the number of classes drops to less than 28/year. Dancers are always welcome to make up missed lessons as indicated above.
