Inclement Weather Closing Policies
We typically follow Fauquier County Public School Systems decision for delays and closings. However, we will post our official decision on our Facebook, Instagram & Website as soon as we make our decision.
Below are our official closing definitions;
Studio Closed – all classes for the day are cancelled for the safety of our staff and clients.
Studio Delay – we will post the start time for our classes on that specific day. If your class time is prior to the studio start time, your class has been cancelled.
Studio Early Release – we will post when the last class start time of the day will be. If your class time is after that start time, your class has been cancelled.
We do understand that not all of our students attend Fauquier County Public Schools, but we are using their initial decision as a guide – so we ask when inclement weather is happening that you check your local news station as a start but also check our Facebook, Instagram or website. We also want to stress that we want everyone to use their best judgement at all times and make a personal decision for your family based on the roads in your area.
Your child is required to attend class regularly as techniques are taught each week and in January begin to learn their end of year Gala performance dance. We ask that all students treat their instructor, fellow students, staff and studio surroundings with respect and common courtesy. Your child is required to wear the appropriate dance wear to class. Your teacher will review with your dancer and the parent the class rules and expectations.
Class Withdrawal Policy
Early withdrawal from a class before completion of the year requires a 30-day written withdrawal notice emailed to email@example.com. The parent/guardian will be responsible for tuition until your notice is sent and accepted. Once tuition is drafted, it is non-refundable. If you withdrawal after December 15, 2018, you will not receive a refund for your recital fee or costume. However, the costume and tee shirt ordered are yours to keep.
We do videotape and photography our dances and dancers for promotional and public relations activities. We post pictures and videos to social media, print ads and on our website.
