Statutory Holiday Policy
Although we recognize and celebrate the meaning of each statutory holiday, we do not close the studio for all of them. We justify this decision based on the fact that we want to provide equal practice time to all of our classes throughout the dance year, and we do not, unfortunately, have the necessary studio space or time available to re-schedule.
Regular classes will not be held during the Christmas Holidays, Easter Break or during Family Week in February. Tuition fees have been calculated taking into consideration such holidays, therefore, there will be no reductions in tuition fees made due to months with holidays.
If the local schools have announced that school buses are cancelled in a particular day due to inclement weather, the Studio will remain open at the Studio Director's discretion. Students and parents will have the option to come to the Studio if they choose to. No makeup classes or refunds will be offered if the Studio does not need to close.
If the Studio must cancel classes under any other circumstances, all efforts to schedule a make class before the end of the season will be made.
If the Studio is forced to close due to an event out of the Studio's control (i.e. war, pandemic, natural disaster, etc) classes will continue to be delivered online when possible.
