COMPETITIVE DANCE PROGRAM - Studio Policies

Our competitive program is meant for dedicated dancers working at a competitive level.

We ask for a commitment from both the student and the parent throughout the entire year. Parents, we ask for your support and understanding on all our studio policies.

1. We encourage you to stay up to date on all the current information. Make sure to check
your email regularly, as that is how we communicate the information. Also, check our
website frequently www.affinitydance.com because we will have information posted on
there as well.

2. Substitute teachers may be required on occasion (i.e. Due to competition events, illness, etc.) Students are still expected to attend class even if it is not their regular teacher instructing.

3. We ask for your understanding on class cancellations due to competition.

4. If your child starts attending a new class or if you withdraw from one of your classes you must advise reception immediately. We need to keep all of our records up to date and
accurate for our competition forms, costume lists and fee lists.

5. We require 1 month notice should you withdraw from any or all classes. Your preauthorized payments can be revised for any remaining payments following the 1 month notice.

6. You will be notified of any fees owing by email. All notifications will include a deadline that the fees must be paid by. Any fees overdue by two weeks will be subject to an additional late charge of 5%. We accept the following methods of payment for all fees:
Cash/Cheque/Debit/Visa/MC/Amex. If you are unable to make it into the studio, you can
send cash or cheque with your child or phone reception with a credit card number.

7. We have a lost and found in our reception that will be emptied at least three times
throughout the year (Xmas, Spring break, and Summer). You will be notified by email at
least one week prior to ensure you’ve looked through the lost and found.

8. We require a parent rep for each competitive group. The role of a parent rep is to be a
liaison between the parents and the instructor to help organize costuming and
communicate special information to the group. You would need to discuss with the
instructor their costume ideas. You may be asked to help purchase costumes, though
you would not be in charge of collecting any money from parents. You would not be
expected to assist with any sewing.

9. Dancers will compete in 2-4 local competitions throughout the year, specific details to be confirmed by late October. Competitive dancers are expected to perform in at least 1 of
our year end shows held in June, specific dates to be confirmed in October.

Attention Students & Parents!

Below are a few things to note:
1. Where is my class? The whiteboard in the reception area will indicate what studio your instructor will be teaching in. Please check the whiteboard each day when you arrive as you may not always dance in the same room.

2. Please wait to go up the stairs until the class before you has finished. This reduces the traffic on the stairs between classes and minimizes the noise level that is distracting to the teacher and students.

3. If students have two classes in a row (example, ballet then jazz) you DO NOT need to change your outfit. Throw on some shorts and tank top! However, this does NOT apply to ballet classes as all regular attire is required.

4. It is important that the students store their belongings in the cubbies and coat area provided, which helps prevent lost items. Please put all your belongings in your dance bag before storing it in the cubbies. You may also bring your dance bag into your classroom. Keep items OFF the floors and in the cubbies. The Lost & Found will be donated at the end of each month.

5. Students, please clean up after yourselves! There are garbage’s, paper & bottle recycling bins – please respect our space. Please rinse out all containers that are being recycled. DO NOT throw paper bags in the garbage please recycle!

Attention Parents!

Below are a few things to note:
1. Please inform reception about any changes in your child’s dance schedule. It is important that we have the correct information on file. *Please note we require 30 day notice to process any payment changes to your file.

2. If your child is unable to attend class, please advise reception by phone or email. Company & Competitive students are not to miss more than 3 classes. Please review our rules and regulations regarding missed classes.

3. DO NOT PARK in front of the studio at any time; it is dangerous for the kids walking to the vehicle. It also creates a traffic jam when parked vehicles are backing out of their stalls. Please park in the parking stalls available. Refrain from parking in front of the windows/door of Hydraulic Supply (at the side of the building) from 3:30-5:30. There is lots of equipment transferred that could scratch cars. NO ENGINES RUNNING!

4. In our parent lounge area is the “Info Board”, where we will post important information. Please be sure to stay up to date on our upcoming info. We will also be emailing this information out.
