Dance Junction Policies
Adding/Dropping a class: Classes can be added until December 1st. Please notify the director so the student is moved or added to that specific class. If the student chooses to drop a class, please notify the studio at the end of the previous month or the student will be charged for the following full month. Sorry, no refunds.
Enrollment: A MINIMUM of five (5) students per class is required in order for a class to run.
**Very Important Information!
-Please make it a priority to attend classes. It is important in building technique without falling behind. In the event that a dancer is unable to attend, dancers/parents MUST ALWAYS call the studio ahead of time beforehand if they will not be attending their class. -Please keep in mind that it is mandatory for dancers to attend dress rehearsals before the annual show.
-Please be on time for class. Tardiness disrupts the class and goes not allow dancers to have good work habits. If a dancer is tardy, they will be asked to observe the class until the instructor gives permission to participate.
Injuries: Dance Junction and our staff are not responsible nor liable for any injury that a dancer may sustain at the studio. If a dancer is injured, they are still required to attend class but may sit out and watch.
Illness: If a dancer is sick, please do not attend class and call the studio. We do not want to spread germs to other dancers. Dancers may make up a class by taking another level of that subject the following week when they are well.
Visitors/Peak Week: Visitors are allowed to observe three times during the course of the dance year. Parents/Guardians will be notified. This begins in October. Please do not disturb the dancers while classes are in session. Please talk quietly in the lobby while waiting. Cell phone usage and other electronic devices must be kept on silent and phone calls should be taken outside.
Annual Show: Our annual performance is held in the Spring. Dates and location will be announced in our Fall newsletters. All of the information you will need for the year will be posted on the bulletin board located in the lobby of the studio.
Performing in the annual show is not a requirement of class participation. Students may choose whether or not they wish to perform. If a student chooses NOT to perform, the class teacher must be notified by DECEMBER 1, since our costumes are ordered this time. If students do not wish to participate, costume deposits previously paid will be credited towards their class payments (if we are notified properly by December 1st). If a student commits to the performance and later cancels (after December 1) there will be NO REFUND of costume payment.
Holidays: Our holidays are as listed: Columbus Day, Thanksgiving Weekend, Christmas Vacation (2 weeks) February and April vacations (refer to bulletin board for dates). Please note: Holidays are not included in the cost of tuition and you will not be charged for them.
Cancellations: Classes are cancelled when Saugus Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather. Saturday and evening classes may not be affected by this policy, therefore, students in those classes should call the studio to see if class is cancelled. Cancelled classes will be rescheduled only when necessary to meet the 30-week requirement.
Inappropriate Behavior/Bullying: Any form of bulling or inappropriate behavior is not tolerated at Dance Junction. If there is a situation where a dancer is bullying another student or acting inappropriately during class, they will be asked to have a meeting with the director. If the misbehavior continues after the second warning, the director has the right to dismiss the student from the class for the remainder of the year and tuition will not be refunded. We take this very seriously.
Master Classes/Classes at other studios: If a dancer has a friend or invites dancers from other studios to attend a master class within our studio, a release form must be signed by his/her dance studio owner. If Dance Junction students would like to take master classes at other studios, a release form must be signed and approved by Miss Lauren only. Release forms can be found at our studio by the front desk.
