Tuition is due the last week of the month for the upcoming month. There is a $15 late fee if not received by the 10th of the month. Tuition must be paid in full. No tuition is refunded. If the studio is closed for a holiday or if you miss part of the month due to vacation, illness, etc., you are able to take a make-up class within 30 days. Tuition is not pro-rated. All private lessons must be prepaid, no exceptions. Company members are expected to pay full tuition regardless of attendance. There is an annual registration fee of $25 per person/$45 for whole family. This fee is due when you sign up and with your January tuition each year after. There is a $20 fee on all returned checks. All checks may be converted into electronic drafts.
Good attendance is beneficial for students and teachers. If we know how many students are regularly attending each class, we can staff the classes accordingly and can deliver more accurate information to future students regarding class size. Students should arrive to class on time so as not to interrupt the class and force us to re-teach material. Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late must have the teacher’s approval to attend class.
The studio will be closed for all major holidays. Exact dates of closure will be published on the schedule and website prior to the holiday. If you have questions regarding closures due to snow or bad weather, please call the studio before you leave as we update our recorded message as conditions change.
No Make-Up Classes will be offered for Studio Closings on Holidays. If you miss part of the month due to vacation, illness, etc., you are able to take a make- up class within 30 days in any style of class. Simply let your instructor know that you are using a make-up class when you check in.
All classes are 70 minutes long. 10 Minutes will be used for warm ups and cool down and stretching. All group classes must be completed during the 4-week cycle and classes cannot be carried over to the next cycle. A student who misses one of their regularly scheduled group classes must complete a make-up class within 30 days period.
PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF
It is Rangla Punjab Academy’s policy that students not be dropped off in front of the building. It is the guardian’s responsibility to walk the dancer into the dancer check-in area and wait for the instructor to guide them to their appropriate room. The student should arrive in adequate time to change clothing, eat, etc., before class begins. The guardian must also come into the studio to pick up the student. The guardian must arrive a few minutes before class ends in order to wait for their dancer to come out of class. No student should leave the studio without a parent or guardian. We are very sensitive to our students whereabouts and safety, but Rangla Punjab Academy will not be held responsible for your student.
Any student left unattended at the studio for longer than 15 minutes before or after the class they have registered for will be charged as if they attended an additional dance class. The same holds true for siblings—please do not leave siblings unattended at the studio.
Proper shorts/Sweatpants and T-shirt is required for all dancers. This means no jeans, dresses, or loose fitting clothes.
We dance bare feet on wooden floor in classes as well as dance stages or special event performances.
Please be considerate of Rangla Punjab and all others around you. Absolutely no gum, food or drink in any of the dance rooms. Any food items need to remain in the dressing room or designated waiting area. You are responsible for cleaning up and throwing away your trash.
Please leave valuables and jewellery at home, as the studio is not responsible for missing items. Don’t forget to double check and make sure you have everything before leaving the studio.
We ask that you please label each item with your full name in an effort to decrease the amount of items that are lost or misplaced. Every class tends to have one or more students with the same name. If shoes and clothes are not labeled, finding the proper owner can become a tricky task. Items left in the lost and found will be donated to charity every month.
Due to additional dance performances, choreography work, illness, or personal reasons, substitute teachers may be needed at times. All substitutes are highly qualified and must be treated with the same respect as the regular teacher. Substitute teachers are also a benefit as they expose dancers to a different style of teaching so everyone wins.
STUDENT REFERRAL POLICY
For each new student you send to the studio that enrolls, pays the registration fee, and one month of tuition, you will receive a $10 discount on your tuition for the following month.
At Rangla Punjab Academy, we hold two InterYouth Festivals each year. All students are welcome and encouraged to participate. They are typically held the second week of June and December. They will be professionally produced and presented. There will be a participation fee as well as fees for tickets and costumes. You will have your choice as to whether you would like your dancer to participate in these festivals or not, although we encourage all students and families to participate! This is where you (as well as your family, friends, whomever!) can see the progress your dancer has made and how he or she has blossomed from a student to a performer! The shows are always entertaining and more than worth all of the hard work!
