Studio Policies

Weather Policy / Closures
Classes canceled due to inclement weather can be heard on our answering machine after 12:00pm for afternoon classes or after 8:00am for morning classes. Please call (508)384-7875. If Wrentham Public Schools are canceled, we generally will close, too. In some case, however, if the afternoon clears up we will open the studio. Please call the studio after 12:00 pm on NO SCHOOL DAYS.  Also, look for our FACEBOOK post and Email that will be sent out!

Covid-19 / Remote Classes:
In planning ahead, if our studio is forced to shut down again, classes will automatically run on zoom to finish out a pay session. The instructors will conduct their classes from the studio.  There will be no refunds given if we are operating via Zoom.    When the next pay session is to begin, Showcase Dance Productions will make a decision on how to process with the next session.  Classes may either continue on Zoom, or the studio may take a break until it is safe to reopen.  We will follow with tuition payment schedule, if classes are held via zoom.  If classes are NOT held via zoom, no tuition payment, for that timeframe, will be required.  We will keep you posted along the way as to which choice is best.  

 

Absentees and Tardiness
Regular attendance is extremely important for dancers to progress with their class. Please make every effort to attend every class and arrive 10 minutes early. There are no refunds on missed classes. Please notify the office if your child is going to be tardy or absent from class. Classes can be made up in alternate classes.

Withdrawal From Class
In the event of withdrawal from class, please notify the office within one week. No refunds will be given for the unused portion of the tuition. Students are encouraged to complete the remainder of the session. Students are responsible for paying balance of costumes even if they withdraw from class.

Studio Etiquette
•  Please be quiet and courteous while in the waiting room.
•  Students arriving late may be asked to observe class in order to prevent injury.
•  Please wear cover-ups (sweatpants, shorts, etc.) to and from the studio.
•  We reserve the right to dismiss a student from the studio who is disruptive, or a discipline issue within the class.

Dress Code

Proper dress code for dance class is extremely important, as teachers need to be able to see a dancer's body in order to give corrections. T-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, and sweat pants are not allowed in class, but should be worn to and from the studio as cover-ups.
