We ensure that recital costumes are always appropriate, and ask that parents use the same consideration when dressing their dancers for class. Please see the studio dress code for guidelines, noting that bra tops and other midriff baring shirts are not considered appropriate class wear. We have many options for affordable classwear available in our in-studio dance boutique, as well local dance shops Teddy Bear Dreams/New Moves Dancewear and Jazzmatazz have complete inventories of shoes, stockings, hairnets, etc.
Year End Recital:
All classes are featured in a June recital. All dancers are required to attend with their group as needed. Both rehearsal and shows are at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Tickets for this special showcase are offered for sale in May.
Attitude & Sportsmanship:
Positive attitude towards self, peers, faculty and staff is expected at all times.
Class photos are taken by a professional photographer. We ask that all dancers attend for the class photo. Purchase is optional. Average pkg cost is $35.
Studio policy prohibits photography or video recording during the recital. A videographer is contracted by the studio to provide professional recording, editing and duplicating services.
Costumes for recreational classes range $70-$90 including accessories (before tax). An additional set or props use fee may apply for stage classes. Non-refundable $50 deposit for each costume is due Nov 15. Balance is due upon receipt in early spring. All efforts are made to ensure costumes are suitable, appropriate and flattering for all ages and body types in the class. Costumes are yours to keep after the show.
The studio reserves the right to withdraw a dancer at any time during the season if repeated problems with attendance, attitude or behavior are not rectified through discussion with the dancer and parent. There will be no refunds in such an event.
One month’s written notice is required for withdraw with no fee incurred.
Registration fee is non-refundable. Costume deposits are non-refundable.
Pro-D Days & holidays:
Classes are held as usual on Pro-D days. Classes are not held on most statutory holidays. We follow the public school calendar, observing Christmas and Spring Break accordingly.
The studio reserves the right to cancel or combine classes based on enrollment.
Make up classes:
Classes are cancelled or postponed as a last resort (weather or instructor illness). Makeup classes will be offered when necessary to fulfill the guaranteed 30 classes. If makeup classes are not possible, then credit for the time missed will be applied to accounts.
Attendance at classes, dress rehearsal and year end recital is mandatory. Dance Team members should note that attendance and participation in all classes is required. Non-participation or absence of any class may result in the dancer being benched from a group or competition. This is done at the instructor and director’s discretion. If a dancer is not able to attend in person due to illness, no refunds will be issued. Participation via Zoom may be made possible for competitive classes.
