Attendance

Joining a dance class requires commitment and dedication, therefore it is important for students to attend each class. This becomes particularly important when we begin working on routines for our performances. Each routine must be a team effort and a student with frequent absences is not fair to the rest of the team. Furthermore, frequent absences require the instructor to re-teach what the student missed and can quickly place a class behind schedule. We understand that certain absences cannot be avoided, therefore please call the studio if you encounter this situation.

Class Placement

At CKC Dance Academy we always strive to ensure that students are correctly placed in a class based on age and ability. We want each student to feel challenged however it is important to understand that teaching dance is what we do. We feel confident in our student placements and will approach you if we feel necessary. As the dance year progresses, if you have concerns about class placement, please come and speak with us. We are more than happy to discuss your child’s progress and whether they require relocation to another class.

Tuition

Tuition is collected on a monthly basis and is due the first week of each month. If no one is available in the office, please use the tuition drop box. Any payment received after the 15th of the month will incur a $5 late fee, no exceptions. Payments not received by the close of any given month will incur additional fees or may result in suspension from classes until the account is paid or other payment arrangements are made with CKC.
