We expect students to attend all classes; excessive absences could lead to students not advancing to the next level. If they miss classes while the end of the year choreography is being finalized, they could also be removed from sections of the piece. We understand illnesses happen we’d prefer germs stay at home but do encourage students to observe their class if they are able. If your dancer is going to miss a class due to a conflict, please let us know in advance so teachers can plan accordingly. To notify the studio of any student absence, please call the studio or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancellations by SCD:
We make every effort possible not to cancel classes. If a cancellation must occur due to weather or instructor illness, 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.
Generally, February and April school vacation weeks are used to make up any canceled 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.
Sole City Dance does NOT follow local school department weather cancellations. Due to weather predictions and conditions that can change over just a few hours, we decide to cancel as close to class times as we can. A decision is made about MORNING classes one hour before they begin, and AFTERNOON classes are determined by 2:30 pm.
We will notify families through email and/or text message. If you are unsure, please call the studio or check our Facebook 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 sign up to receive text messages about canceled classes by visiting your online account or stopping by the front desk.
Make-up Policies for Student Illness or Injury:
Due to the current health guidelines on class size limitations we will not be able to allow for make-up classes at this time. We will not be issuing any refunds or credits for any missed classes.
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 four students are present for any class, the time will be adjusted as follows:
- Three students in attendance: 75% of regular time
- Two students: 50% of regular time
- One student: Student may choose whether to stay for a class of 50% length or cancel class & be given credit
Due to the current health guidelines Sole City Dance’s waiting area is closed. If a parent needs to enter the studio with their dancer only one parent is allowed in the studio at a time. You must be wearing a mask at all times along with complying with social distancing recommendations. We strongly encourage dropping off your dancer as space indoors is limited.
