Terms and Conditions of Enrollment

 

Dress Code

 

Students who do not meet our basic dress code and/or grooming requirements may observe classes only.

 

There is no refund for classes missed due to inappropriate dress/grooming.

 

Please refer to PDA’s “dress code and hairstyles” for more information. 

 

 

Performances 

 

Performance participation is open to all and is optional. 

 

There are no refunds for ordered costumes or tickets. 

 

Dancers who do not have dress code shoes or whose accounts are in arrears or whose costume balance owing is unpaid will be unable to take their performance costume home until the issues have been satisfactorily resolved.  

 

All participants ages 3-8 must provide their own Personal Assistant (babysitter) for both the dress rehearsal and performance.

 

In fairness to your classmates, recital participants who miss three consecutive lessons in April and/or May must book private classes to catch up on missed choreography.  Failure to do so may result in forfeiting your performance with no refund of tuition  and costume fees.  

 

Poor attendance may result in the forfeiture of performing even when the absences are not consecutive. 

 

 

Payments

 

PDA accepts Post-dated Installment Cheques or Pre-Authorized Credit Card Installments (Visa/MasterCard).  

 

In person quarterly debit and cash payments have a different fee schedule - please contact our office. 

 

 

Quarterly In Person Payments

 

If you choose to pay in person at each quarter instead of providing a pre-authorized credit card or post-dated cheques there is an additional $50 administrative fee.  

 

 

 

Class Changes & Cancellations

 

PDA reserves the right to make schedule changes as necessary or to cancel classes with insufficient enrollment: including but not limited to: Private Lessons, Regular season classes, Summer Dance Camps, Summer Vibe Series, Summer Sweat, Acro Intensive and workshops. 


If a class is cancelled and there is no replacement class you are able to attend, you will receive a refund less fees prorated for classes taken. 


Fees for missed classes (illness, vacation, etc) are non-refundable. 


Students wishing to make a class change must first obtain approval from the Director.  Please notify your Instructor before taking a make-up class.

If a private lesson is cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the lesson 50% of the fee will be retained.  

 

  

Withdrawal Policy

 

 

PDA reserves the right to suspend classes from students whose accounts are delinquent.  Should a student wish to discontinue classes for any reason before the end of a session, the school requires written notification of withdrawal signed by the parent/guardian or adult student.
