Attendance at Stageworkz is taken very seriously. Please arrive early enough for your child's class - at least 10 minutes before the start time. Students must wait in the lobby until class is called. Late arrival is a distraction to the class and teacher. If tardiness is a recurring situation, we may need to discuss a change of class time and day.
If a student has other obligations that arise after the start of the New Year (i.e.: dance company, sports, theater) their first commitment should be to their classes at Stageworkz. The teachers and the other dancers expect a certain level of commitment from everyone. Also, if you are enrolled in technique classes, attendance is imperative in your progression as a dancer. Please be respectful to all other students and teachers by having timely and regular attendance.
INVITE ONLY CLASSES
All jazz and ballet invite classes are required to take a minimum of one ballet class per week to remain in their invite level class. Tap invite students are required to take one tap technique class. Students that are invited, are asked and required to maintain their attendance for these classes. Three excused absences and one unexcused absence are allowed for the year. No unexcused absences over that will be accepted and could result in having the student removed from class. Any known conflicts must be submitted in writing prior to the first week of classes.
MISSED OR CANCELLED CLASSES
If you are going to be absent, this must be communicated to the studio office via email so we know not to expect you. Text messages to teachers or studio staff are not an appropriate way to communicate an absence. There is no tuition reduction or reimbursement due to student illness or absence. All closings due to inclement weather will be made up at a specific rescheduled time.
FOOD AND DRINK
No gum, snacks or drinks other than water are permitted in the studios. Any food is to be consumed in the lobby area only. All trash MUST be disposed of appropriately.
Full authority is given to the instructors to determine the level of each dancer. Dances are placed based on age, ability, technique, and where the instructor feels they are best suited. Our instructors are highly trained and make placement decisions in the best interest of the individual student. If you have questions regarding placement, you may contact the studio office and the teacher will get back to you regarding any questions or concerns.
WITHDRAWAL FROM CLASSES
If a student decides to stop training at StageWork, notice must be submitted in writing to the office. The following fees will apply:
Before October 1st - No Fee
Between October 1 and January 1 - $150
After January 1st - All remaining tuition will still be owed for the 2022-23 season.
Any exception to this policy is at the sole discretion of the studio owner and must be provided in writing.
A student may request to drop-in and participate in a class that they are not enrolled in for the following fees:
$20 for 45 minutes
$30 for 60-75 minutes
$35 for 90 minutes
Requests must be made through the office and payment must be made prior to class. Drop-in students are not eligible to participate in the recital. Any students wanting to perform in the recital must be fully registered by December 1st.
CLASS CANCELLATIONS DUE TO LOW ENROLLMENT
A class must have 3-4 actively enrolled students to run. If enrollment falls below 3 students, the class may be canceled, and students will be given the option of either receiving a refund or changing to another class time.
HOLIDAY AND INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
Our studio follows Anne Arundel County Public Schools for inclement weather closures. If there is a delay, classes will be held at the regularly scheduled time. If schools close early due to the weather, evening classes will be canceled. Holiday closures will be posted on the calendar of events located in the lobby as well as on our Facebook page and website.
Parents are not permitted in the dance rooms while classes are in session. If you need to speak with a teacher, please speak with the office personnel or leave a note. Instructors will be more than happy to address any concerns or questions you may have. Be sure to include your home phone number and an e-mail address.
Please try to use the restrooms before or after, not during class as it is a distraction for the other students and teachers.
Please be respectful of your fellow students as well as your instructors. Excessive, rude, or inappropriate behavior will NOT be tolerated. If a student disrespects a teacher, they will be asked to leave the class immediately and their parents/guardians will be promptly notified. It is at the teacher's discretion to judge what acceptable behavior is for each class.
The studio is granted permission to take photographs of the students to use in brochures, websites, posters, advertisements, and other promotional materials the studio creates. Permission is also hereby granted for the studio to copyright such photographs in its name.
