REGISTRATION

All students must register online via the APSD portal before beginning classes. This includes creating an account with complete and accurate information, filling out emergency information and accepting the waiver. There is a $25 non-refundable annual family registration fee, or $15 individual fee, required at the time of fall registration. This fee is a separate fee and does not apply towards tuition. Students will not be registered for classes unless fee is paid at the time of registration. It is the responsibility of the parent to obtain and read through the COVID-19 studio guidelines document upon registration. This document can be found on our website.


SESSION 2 CLASS INFORMATION

Fall session 2 classes are all technique classes. Recital information will be given at a later date. Students who wish to go on pointe must take pre-pointe for at least one year prior to enrolling in beginning pointe. Students may not enroll in a CCA class unless they have tested into the CCA level listed or they have received teacher permission.

**Pre-pointe and Strength and Stretch Classes

All students enrolled in pre-pointe will need to purchase a pre-pointe kit prior to beginning the class. Pre-pointe kits will be available for purchase at the front desk. Kits are $10.00 each and will include all the supplies needed for the class. Although pre-pointe is a prerequisite to beginning pointe, students will be evaluated for readiness for beginning pointe from Grade II technique classes. Dancers enrolled in Strength and Stretch will need to purchase a Ballet Band. Ballet Bands are available on amazon.com or balletband.com.


STUDIO POLICIES

· Fall session II will be 6 weeks from November 4, 2020-December 19, 2020. Thanksgiving break will be from November 25-28, 2020. Christmas break is December 20-January 3.

· Schedule, teacher, and class offerings are subject to change based on enrollment, space limitations, regulations, and availability.

· Students are to abide by studio dress code at all times regardless of if the class is in studio or via Zoom. Students that are not properly dressed will be dismissed from class. If a student does not have the CCA class uniform, we ask that they wear a solid black leotard with pink tights for girls and a white t-shirt with black tights for boys. Class uniforms and dress codes can be found on the studio website. APSD will be enforcing the CCA uniform policy beginning in January.

· Closures due to inclement weather will be announced on our website and will be on our outgoing telephone voice mail.

· There is absolutely no use of any studios that are vacant. Studio staff will close the doors and shut off the lights when a studio is not in use.



TUITION

• There is no pro-rated tuition. There are no refunds, credits, or transfers of tuition for missed classes, snow days, pandemics or holiday breaks. We strongly encourage students to make up any missed classes. Students may make-up classes during the session with any other class of the same level or lower, even if it is not the same type of dance. Make up classes must be scheduled in advance due to space limitations.

• The fall session tuition and registration fee are due in full at the time of enrollment. The tuition listed is for the entire session (6 weeks) and is not per month. There are absolutely no refunds or credits of tuition regardless of if classes are held in studio, outdoors, or online. Payments must be made via the APSD web portal. Dancer cannot attend classes until tuition for the session is paid in full.

• Families must have a current credit card on file in our system.

• A $30 fee is charged on all returned checks.

• Boys Scholarships: Our studio offers half off all tuition for boys up to age 18 with the exception of creative movement and boy’s technique.

• Family accounts - Multiple Dancers in a family must reside at the same residence and have the same legal guardian.

• Unlimited class students taking more than two CCA of the same level class may be put on a waiting list if spots are needed for other dancers.

• There is absolutely no refund of tuition after registration and enrollment.

• Should we be unable to meet in person at any point in the session due to COVID-19, all classes will move to Zoom on the same day and time. There will be no refunds or credits of tuition. Pointe classes can be done on pointe if dancer has a vinyl square at home, or it can be done in flat shoes. Progressions classes will be modified to focus on strengthening and stretching. Tap classes can purchase a tap board or piece of plywood or can dance in street shoes. Additionally, we are considering an outdoor option for classes that cannot meet in person. All classes will be available via Zoom regardless of if they are in person or outdoor.
