POLICIES

Listed below are Arts Edge Dance Companies Policies & Guidelines. 

Class Placement 

Age and ability are both taken into consideration when placing students into a class level.  Each student is different and at AEDC we diligently work to provide a learning environment to best suit your child.  

 

Previous dance experience does not guarantee or determine a level placement.

 

Our director and staff will make class placement decisions to best fit each individual student.  Any questions regarding class placement should be directed to Miss Lindsay (lindsay@artsedgedancecompany.com).

Attendance

We ask you to please call the studio or e-mail to inform us if your child will be missing class.   If your child has a non contagious illness it is suggested that they attend and observe class.  If your child is injured, it is suggested that they attend and observe class.  

 

There is no refund for a missed class(es).  Per Director's discretion, dancers may "makeup" their missed class in a class of similar style and level.  Dancers are expected to attend their regular classes and strongly urged to notify Miss Lindsay if there is a conflict as far in advance as possible.

 

 Remember, TEAM work makes the DREAM work!  The better the attendance, the easier it is to accomplish our goals within the classroom! 

Class Cancellations

Arts Edge Dance Company, Inc. will NOT be doing virtual classes when there is inclement weather.

 

 Notifications of weather cancellations will be posted on our social media by 8am for morning classes and 2pm for evening classes.  

 

A studio wide e-mail will also be sent.

If we have to close due to COVID-19, we will be offering virtual classes.

No refund will be given to paid tuition upon withdrawal.
