Summer Camp and Class Policies
Visit our website and create an account to enroll in our summer camps. You can select which weekly camp/s you would like to participate. Enrolled students are committed to the entire week of camp, and a $50 deposit fee is required at the time of registration. The deposit is non-refundable and the remaining balance for each weekly camp is due on the first day of camp that is commencing. Please notify us if your child has any injuries or illness of which we should be aware.
Students should store any personal items in the dressing rooms. Once the studio door is opened, students should enter for class. All students should use the restroom prior to the start of class to avoid class disturbance. Dance classes that incorporate multiple genres (KinderCombo, Blend Classes) will allow time for students to change shoes and minimal attire during class.
Studio doors remain closed during all classes. It is not recommended that parents accompany their child into the studio, as it may cause the student or class to become distracted. During these times we ask that all parents drop their students off at the door unless your child is 5 and under. We do have a TV in our lobby where you can view your child's progress. Remember to maintain social distancing guidelines.
Students may enroll at any time and will pay the weekly camp rate.
All absences must be reported to the office via email (email@example.com) or phone (224-223-3160). For the students’ safety, a student who arrives more than 10 minutes late to a group class may be asked to observe the class only.
Students will not be allowed to participate in group classes without proper attire, no exceptions (dress code is listed on the website). Dance students may be required to purchase tights, bun kits, etc. if they are not prepared for class. Dress code for Camps is form fitting clothes and jazz or ballet shoes.

The email must include the student’s name, class, and the reason for withdrawal. There is no refund provided for withdrawal from a summer camp once the camp has begun. If a student is enrolled in our 6 week summer session they may withdraw during the first week. The student is charged a $50.00 withdraw fee and must pay for any classes taken.

Students are to address the instructors as “Ms.” or “Mr.” followed by their first names. Respect for the instructors is expected and enforced. Students should be prepared to accept constructive criticism from their instructors in order to gain proper technique and further their progress and arts education. Any behavioral problems may result in dismissal from a class with no refund. Students should also use the restroom prior to the start of class to reduce interruptions and distractions. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated in any of the waiting areas and may result in student dismissal from the studio.
