Tuition - Tuition is due on the first class of each month. You can purchase your tuition online prior to class or at the door in person. We can take check, cash or credit. Dancers will not be accepted into class without payment. Please stay with your dancer until they have been cleared for class that month. Drop-ins are welcome to pay prior to class or at the door.
Refunds - We want you to be completely satisfied with your Thrive Creative Dance experience and will do everything we can to make that happen. However, if you are still unsatisfied or you have an unavoidable emergency, we will give you a pro-rated refund. Refunds will not be given for missing class because of illness or scheduling conflict. If you are unsure if you can get a refund, just ask us, and we are happy to help!
Missing a class - We all have conflicts at one time or another, and completely understand if a dancer has to miss class. Unfortunately, due to our small size, we cannot offer make up classes or refunds. If you know in advance that your dancer will be missing more than two classes in a month, consider purchasing one or two single classes, instead of the whole month.
Snow days - The Richland Community Center has the power to cancel class due to weather. They will let us know as soon as possible and we will email all families affected and will post on our Facebook page. We will schedule make up times for snow days.
Code of Conduct
Student - Be respectful, kind, and supportive of yourself, students, and faculty. Work hard with a positive attitude. Follow studio procedures; if you are unsure of what to do, ask a teacher. Clean up any messes you make. When it's time to dance, we dance.
Parent - Walk your children to the classroom door until their teacher calls roll; we will release your dancer only to the person who dropped them off, unless you have told us otherwise. Parents are not permitted in class unless previously discussed with a teacher. Talking negatively about students or faculty in the waiting area is not permitted. Please no correcting your dancer or other dancers during or after class. If you can encourage your dancer for their hard work, perseverance and good attitude, they will take these skills past the dance studio and into other areas of their lives!
Teacher - Kindly teach new dancers the rules and expectations of class. Help students uphold the code of conduct by verbally reminding them of the right choice. Demonstrate discipline, a positive attitude and a kind heart and expect students to do the same. Listen to student and parent concerns. Recognize each dancer as a person above all else.
