In Studio and Online Classes:
All registrations for classes/camps are for in studio programs. In the event that the studio is mandated to shut down by the government, regularly scheduled classes will continue to take place online until we are allowed to open again. The schedule will remain the same as the in studio schedule with only slight adjustments due to the change in platform.
Tuition remains the same whether classes are running in studio or online.
Class fees are paid either using the monthly option or the term option, as outlined on our registration form. Fees are due on the 1st day of each month – September to June inclusive or by term payment on September 1st and February 1st. Payment options are cash, cheque, debit or interac e-transfer. Please note the fees can not be paid directly through the portal. Any fees that are not paid within 10 days of the due date will have a 5% late fee applied. Any returned cheques or automatic withdrawals will have a $20.00 returned item charge. Family discounts/multiple class discounts are available – please refer to registration form for details.
Cancellation and Refund Policy:
Should you wish to cancel your registration you must notify us in writing (email). All cancellation refunds will be handled as follows:
$25.00 cancellation fee will be applied.
Monthly option – you will be responsible for the month you advise us as well as the cancellation fee.
Term Option – If you are in the first three months of the term you will receive a prorated refund less the cancellation fee. If you are in the last two months of the term, there will be no refund and no cancellation fee will be applied.
We reserve the right to cancel a class due to low enrolment. You will be given a refund for any cancelled classes due to this reason.
Year End Recital and Costumes:
Our dance studio celebrates the culmination of a year's dedicated effort and artistic growth through our Year End Recital, hosted every June at Eastdale Collegiate. Specific details concerning event dates and timings will be communicated via email once finalized. Participants will need to adorn performance-specific costumes for this celebratory event. A deposit of $60 is required for each costume in January, with the remaining balance to be settled upon collection in early May.
The studio runs on a schedule that is similar to the school boards. We are closed for all statutory holidays and are closed for the following breaks: Christmas Break and March Break These holiday dates have already been allowed for in the pricing so there will be no adjustments to the monthly rate or term rates.
In the event of adverse weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances beyond our jurisdiction (such as prolonged power outages), classes may occasionally need to be canceled. We commit to notifying you promptly via email in such instances. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refunds for sessions canceled due to uncontrollable factors. However, we will endeavor to accommodate an equivalent replacement class to compensate for any missed sessions.
Attendance and Punctuality:
Please ensure dancers arrive on time and in correct dance attire in order to minimize disruption to the class. Consistent attendance enhances the dance experience and allows the individual dancer to feel confident in knowing their class work.
For those considering private or semi-private sessions, we invite you to reach out to Miss Jennifer directly at email@example.com. Please note that these specialized classes are contingent on the availability of our studio and instructors. The pricing structure for these classes differs from our standard classes.
Class Attire/Dress Code:
We mandate that all students adhere to the dress code as specified on our website for each class. Non-compliance will prompt a notification to the parents. Persistent disregard for the dress code may necessitate the student to abstain from participation until the requisite attire is adopted.
Newsletters and Studio Announcements:
A monthly newsletter is produced at the beginning of each month to keep you informed of studio updates. These newsletters along with any other updates can be found on our website www.jennifersartsinmotion.ca, through REMIND, posted on our in studio bulletin boards and by email. Please make sure that firstname.lastname@example.org is on your safe list so the newsletters don't go to your junk mail folder. It is important to read these messages as they contain vital information regarding the studio. If you do not hear from us, please verify that we have the correct email address on file.
Jennifer’s Arts in Motion cannot be held responsible for lost property. We have a lost and found bin in the studio lobby outside the change rooms. We recommend labeling all personal items – Mabel’s Labels work great for this. All dance shoes found will be kept at the front desk for a short period of time.
