1.) Class Procedures: Please have your child arrive five minutes prior to class start time dressed in proper attire and shoes. Proper technical warm-ups are done at the beginning of class and are vital to preventing injuries. It is also encouraged that students use the restroom before class begins.
2.) Attire: Students must adhere to their class dress code. Please see our website or request a copy of this from the studio.
3.) Observance: Parents are not permitted to stay in the studio during class. (Unless your child is in the Tiny Movers or Groovin' With Grownups class). This can be a distraction to the students who often do better in class when their parents are not in the room. Parents may wait in the waiting room if they choose but do not have to stay at the studio during their child's class. At least once a month parents will be invited into their child's class at the very end for a quick show.
4.) Before/After Class: Pep & Pizzazz is not a daycare or babysitting service. Students are not to arrive any earlier than 15 minutes prior to class and must be supervised by an adult until class time. Students are to wait in the waiting room until their instructor comes to get them for class. When one class ends, another starts; teachers are not responsible for watching students once class has dismissed. Parents should pick students up promptly. Please instruct your child to wait inside the waiting room for their rides. Students are not permitted to wait outside for rides. Parents should come into the studio to pick up their child as we do not allow our students to leave the building not accompanied by an adult.
5.) Absences: You may make-up missed classes that best fit the dancer's age and skill level. Missed cases are not refundable. In order to schedule a make up class, please contact Pep & Pizzazz. Tuition is still due to hold the spot for your child. There are no refunds if you drop a class in the middle of the month, choose other activities over dance class, or simply skip class. If your child has a contagious illness or is injured, please keep them out of class until they are recovered and can participate fully without risk of relapse or re-injury. In the case of serious injury, that would require students to miss a month or more of class, tuition might be waived (this is determined by Pep & Pizzazz staff on a case-by-case basis).
6.) Class Cancellation: Pep & Pizzazz has the right to combine classes, change times, provide substitute teachers or replacement teachers, and cancel or combine classes as they see fit.
7.) Adding Classes: If a student would like to add a class after they are already enrolled, they are welcome to do a free trial class. If you choose to add the class, any extra tuition associated with the class will be due upon the addition of the class to their schedule, but will be prorated if it is in the middle of the month. If you are re-enrolling in the same season, after having dropped all classes from the studio, there will be no re-enrollment fee. However, there is no guarantee that you will be placed into the same class or if a spot on our competitive teams will be available.
As the legal parent or guardian, I release and hold harmless Pep & Pizzazz, its owners and operators from any and all liability, claims, demands, and causes of action whatsoever, arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by the participant and/or the undersigned, while in or upon the premises or in route to or from any of said premises. I understand that appropriate physical contact is required during the instruction of dance, and I give permission for instructors to make appropriate physical contact with me or my child for such instruction.
