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.
