We make every effort possible not to cancel classes. If a cancellation must occur, the class will be made up. On rare occasions, and if a make-up is deemed impossible, tuition credit may be given at the discretion of the administration.
Sole City Dance does NOT follow local school department weather cancellations. If Somersworth schools are cancelled or delayed, our morning dance classes ONLY are cancelled. A decision is made about afternoon classes 2 hours before they begin. Please call the studio or check our FB page before coming to class on days with inclement weather. We do not call people individually unless the cancellation is for an unexpected reason.
You can also sign up to receive text messages about cancelled classes. Visit your online account or stop by the front desk.
Class size policy:
Classes with fewer than 5 students enrolled are subject to cancellation. Any deposits or remaining tuition will be refunded. Smaller classes may run at an increased tuition rate if enrolled students are interested.
Additionally, if fewer than 4 students are present for any class, the time will be adjusted as follows:
- 3 students in attendance: 75% of regular time
- 2 students: 50% of regular time
- 1 student: Student may choose whether to stay for a class of 50% length or cancel class & be given credit
Waiting Room/Classroom Etiquette:
Sole City Dance offers serious educational programs. As such, we expect students to be focused and ready to learn when in class. Students must maintain a respectful and attentive attitude toward instructors at all times.
In support of that, we also ask for a calm atmosphere in the waiting area and dressing rooms as students prepare for class. Please encourage younger students and siblings to read, color, or play quietly while in the waiting area. Running or loud noise of any kind will not be tolerated.
Dance Department Cancellation & Make Up Policies:
Make-up classes are allowed but must be scheduled in advance. Please speak with your instructor to determine an appropriate make-up class and with the front desk for confirmation.
Generally, February and April school vacation weeks are used to make up any cancelled classes that have occurred to date. If you do not come to the scheduled make-up, please speak to your instructor about another appropriate make-up class. Tuition credit is not given when a make-up class is offered.
