Tardiness: Please arrive a few minutes early and come prepared for each class. Dancers arriving 15 minutes late to class will not be permitted to attend that class. We understand things happen and dancers not allowed in class due to tardiness are welcome to take a make-up for that class.
Make-up Policy: Missed classes can be made up within one month of missed class. Dancers can make up a class in any technique as long as it is same level/age or lower than that of the class that was missed. Please inform the desk that you are making up a class before attending. Dancers that drop class cannot make up any more classes as of drop date.

Please do not leave any children unattended in the waiting room.

It is inappropriate to discuss other people's children. Gossip is not welcome at Evolve Dance Center.
Please be respectful of all other dancers and parents. We strive to create a positive and inviting experience for all. We appreciate your help with keeping this policy.
Why do we pay for a full month of tuition when there are holidays and our children do not attend the full month? Your monthly tuition is based on a full dancing season, which makes 40 dance days including dress rehearsal and concert show dates. Tuition will not be prorated due to holidays or absences.
When is tuition due? Tuition is due on the 25th of each month and will be considered late on the 1st of each month. A $20 late fee will be charged for payments received after the 1st of the month. There will be no exceptions with this policy. An email will be sent out on the 20th as a reminder but it is your responsibility for payment. We accept Cash, Visa & MasterCard. Once tuition is paid, there are no refunds.
Registering for Classes (Levels & Ages) We ask that you register your dancer for a class that is the same age and level of your dancer. Evolve Dance Center has the authority to adjust placement for each dancer to make sure the class is appropriate.
Class Enrollment – The studio has the right to drop a dancer that misses 2 or more weeks in a row without prior communication regarding absence. Tuition for that month will not be refunded.
