Policies and Procedures

All students and parents shall read “Student and Family Conduct”, “Studio Rules” and “Covid-19 Policies and Procedures” (if applicable).

Withdrawal From Classes

Any student who withdraws from classes will be entitled to a refund based on how many classes were taken. The office must be informed and a student withdrawal sheet must be completed by the parent in order to receive any refund. Informing the teacher, phone calls and emails are not accepted forms of withdrawal from classes. The only acceptable method is completion of a student withdrawal form at the office. The date signed on the student withdrawal form will be the date used for refund purposes if required.  Administration fees are non-refundable.

Holidays

Classes are not held on Thanksgiving weekend (Saturday-Monday), winter holidays, march break, family day and Easter weekend (Friday-Monday). Please speak to your teacher for an appropriate class to attend should you choose to want to make up these missed classes.

Missed Classes and Inclement Weather

Classes missed due to illness or personal vacations may be made up by attending a similar class. Please speak to your teacher for an appropriate class to attend.
If the studio needs to close due to inclement weather, classes for that day will shift to an on-line format if internet connectivity is available by the teacher.  Studio closures due to inclement weather will be made known on the studio voicemail and/or the website and/or by email and/or on Facebook.
If The Bradford School of Dance experiences mandatory closures due to government restrictions, classes will shift to an on-line format for the duration of the government mandate.

Costumes A $70 + H.S.T. costume deposit per class will be required from every student participating in the year end recital. This deposit is due November 1, 2021. Costume deposits are non-refundable.  Costume deposits are not the full payment required. The balance owing will vary by class. Costume balances are an additional fee due when the student receives their costume. We do our very best to select appropriate costumes based on the theme of the performance and pricing. The Bradford School of Dance Inc. does not dictate the price of our costumes. Costume makers, catalogues, seamstresses and shipping charges all affect the price of a costume. Students are measured for their costumes in October and/or November and we allow for reasonable growth. These are not custom fit costumes. Any costume alterations including, but not limited to, tightening or loosening of straps and taking a costume in, are the responsibility of the student/parent not The Bradford School of Dance Inc. Anyone who registers for class after November 20 will experience a late costume ordering fee of $35. Late registrants are not guaranteed their costume for picture day or recital.
