A monthly newsletter will be emailed out the 1st week of each month to let parents know important information and upcoming events. It is your responsibility to read this letter each month. Please make sure we have your current email address to receive these and special announcements.
A parent email is required. Communications will be made primarily through email, including newsletters and special announcements. If your email address changes throughout the year please login to your parent portal and update or contact us directly.
Auto-payment is processed on the 3rd of each month with the exception of summer months which is on the 1st. All tuition is due on the 1st of each month if not on auto-payment. Late fees will apply to those accounts not paid by the 8th of each month.
Costumes include all extras, such as tights, headpieces, etc. Costumes could involve some alterations by parents as they are made to order. Costume fees are non-refundable or transferable.
Please call the studio if your child will be absent from class. Missed lessons can and should be made up in a class the same age. Make-up classes are most beneficial to the student if completed the week immediately following the absence. Please call the studio to schedule a make-up time.
OBSERVING CLASSES (recreational classes)
Parents are welcome to observe a class anytime within reason. We do this to eliminates many distractions and makes it easier for students to learn and focus on the instructor. We do have a waiting area for parents and dancers to do homework or color. Please make sure other children are not running around the building or in open dance studios.
The students will have a Halloween party during their regular class time. Students may dress up in Halloween costumes and bring treats to share. Please consult your monthly newsletters for more information. Performing Lines will also be able to participate in their classes during Halloween Parties week!
PRACTICE MUSIC (RECITAL DANCES)
Your child’s music will be loaded into your parent portal for easy access once recital dances have been started which for most classes will be in January. An update will be emailed to the email address on file so please make sure it is up to date. More information regarding this will be sent out in future newsletters. Performing Lines will have music once all music is selected and dances have been started.
DISCONTINUING LESSONS WITH US
Should you decide to discontinue lessons, parents must give a written and signed, 30-days advanced notice of your decision. Dancers accounts will continue on the pay schedule till the 30th-day advance notice has expired. Example, if a parent turns in a withdrawal letter on October 15th, you will be responsible for payments on your accounts through November 14th.
Our recitals have been held at Armstrong High School are tentatively scheduled for May 2020. Students will perform in a fully staged, lighted, set, and costumed recital for parents, family, and friends.
Each class will dance in one show with the exception of the Competition Teams, Small Groups, Solos/Duets and some of our older recreational classes, which may dance in several. More information regarding this will be sent out in future newsletters.
Professional pictures will be taken of your child in all costumes during March or April. These pictures are great mementos of your child’s dance season. Class pictures will appear in the recital programs, newspapers, and other advertisements.
Every dancer is special at Intrepid Dance Company! Every dancer will be presented with a trophy who perform in recitals for years of completion at Intrepid Dance Company, 1st through 10th year.
If your years are not consecutive, please bring in your last award received from Intrepid Dance Company to ensure correct years for your dancer.
