Listed below are Arts Edge Dance Companies Policies & Guidelines. A copy will also be sent via e-mail upon registration.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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!
Arts Edge Dance Company, Inc. will not offer makeup classes due to weather cancellations.
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.
Rights to Cancel/Withdraw
Arts Edge Dance Company, Inc. has the rights to cancel scheduled class if there under FIVE students enrolled. Upon cancellation of class, AEDC Director will suggest a replacement.
If your student is choosing to withdraw from a class, a written notice must be submitted to the studio by the last day of the current month.
No refund will be given to paid tuition upon withdrawal.
At Arts Edge Dance Company, Inc. we strive to provide a clean, friendly and encouraging environment. We ask that our dancers and dance families please respect the studio space, each other and our faculty.

At Arts Edge Dance Company, Inc. we believe that having our students full attention truly benefits their learning. We ask that parents wait outside in the lobby or may use a "Drop off, pick up" method during class time. We will hold a Parent Observation Week once a year for our Tiny Star, Kinder-Star, & Rising Star programs. Parents will be invited to class to observe class, take pictures, and see how far your dancer has progressed throughout the year. Watch week dates will be announced in November.
