ABSENCES:  Make up classes are available for missed scheduled classes.  Please note: Classes are on-going from September 2021 to July 2022.  Please let the studio know if you wish to discontinue to avoid any unwanted charges to your account. 

METHOD OF PAYMENT:  Cash or personal checks made out to “Dance With Sherry Studio” are due the first week of each month.   If your last name is different than that of your child’s, please so indicate on your check.  There will be a $25.00 charge for all returned ISF checks.

REGISTRATION FEE:  A once yearly registration fee of $50.00 will be charged to all in September or the month they begin taking classes up through and including May.  This fee covers administrative costs.

INSURANCE:  DWS Studio does not carry medical insurance for its students.  It is required that all dance students be covered by their own family insurance policies and, if injury occurs, it is understood that the student’s own policy is the only source of reimbursement.  You will be required to sign a waiver of disability form at the time of registration. (See page 2)

CLASS OBSERVATION:  Your children work and learn much better if you (parents) are not in the same room.  Distractions are held to a minimum and the “pressure to please” is absent.  The viewing window may be closed during classes at the children’s request. 

DRESS CODE:  Dancewear (jazz/sweat pants & leotards/t-shirts) must be worn during classes.  No skirts, short shorts, crop tops or baggy clothing allowed, and pants must not touch the floor to avoid tripping hazards.  HAIR MUST BE TIED BACK AND NO GUM CHEWING OR FOOD ALLOWED IN STUDIOS!

SHOES:  Tap:  DO NOT attach your own taps to rubber soled shoes!  You will not be allowed onto the dance floor. Loose screws are the bane of hard wood floors and tap shoes should always be checked and screws tightened before going onto the dance floor.  Hip Hop:  Sneakers.  NO flip-flops!  Jazz:  Jazz or ballet slippers.  We have some tap & jazz shoes to loan.  Please donate your old dance shoes back to the studio.

ATTENDANCE:  Good attendance is imperative as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class as well as your own child.  Please make every effort to have you or your child at every class and rehearsal.

YEARLY PERFORMANCE:  The Studio presents two performances per year:  Tapcracker© and the annual Spring Production.  The dates are to be determined at a later time.  Please, do not schedule any planned absences for May (i.e., vacations) as this is a very busy time due to class rehearsals, costume alterations, class pictures and last minute preparations.  Your children have been working very hard throughout the year and want to show off what they have accomplished.  Please don’t disappoint them.

COSTUMES AND PERFORMANCE FEES:  You will be required to purchase one costume per routine for you or your child for the May performance.  A $50 costume deposit for the May show must be paid by December 31st.  For Tapcracker© we supply many costumes but you may be required to purchase accessories, i.e., tights or t-shirts. 

NEWSLETTER:  DWS Studio publishes a monthly newsletter.  The newsletter includes pertinent information such as holiday closures, rehearsal notices and special events.  It is your responsibility to either pick up the newsletter each month from the front desk or provide us with your email address so we may send it to you electronically.

STUDIO ADVERTISING:  Use of student’s dance photos may be used for advertising purposes.  If you do not want your child’s photo used for this purpose, please let the studio know.
