FEES AND POLICIES for ONLINE SEMESTER
offering the most thorough training possible

Doing our best to continue our dance education through the fears of the Covid-19 Crisis.


This semester is a very difficult time. We know we have dedicated dancers and we want to continue to offer as much training for as little cost to you as we possibly can. We need your help in providing a place for this in your home, and encouraging your dancer to concentrate as much as he or she does in person. It is not ideal online, but there are some benefits. There is a feeling of personalization and a chance to interact with those fellow students who have been inspiring to the development of your dancer.

REGISTRATION

All payments will be made through Square. If you would prefer to send a personal check please email (so we know to look out for this) and you may do so - to 628 Main Street, Lafayette, IN 47901. There will be no cash payments and no in person payments accepted for this semester. We are being super cautious and making life easier for you as well.

ATTENDANCE AND MAKE-UPS

Students Enrolled for the Semester may make up missed classes at an equivalent or less advanced level at any time within the semester. It is important to keep up the physical rhythm and training as well as the mental connection that comes with time in the studio. A lower level class will allow students the chance to demonstrate the proficiency gained as well as reinforce the structure of the technique at a slightly slower pace. This is an invaluable tool both in training and confidence building.

 

DRESS CODE

For these online classes we simply ask our female dancers to wear a close fitting solid color leotard and pale tights. .

All students are asked to have their hair securely fastened away from their faces so that it does not fly into eyes. Beginning 1 and higher girls are required to put their hair in a bun (or very short hair in a ponytail). This includes bobby pins or barrettes to keep loose strands out of the face. Please adhere to our very generous dress code policy.
Gentlemen: White fitted shirt, black tights and black socks if these pants are footless. Black Ballet shoes.

 



POLICIES - These may seem absurd in our current crisis. But keep these guidelines in mind for our return. We WILL return to the studio when the world is a safer place for our dancers.

1. Our goal is to provide the best possible training in a positive atmosphere.
2. Students will NOT be permitted to enter class if they arrive anytime 10 minutes after the start time. The tardy arrival negates the progression of physical and mental concentration by others. It also misses the crucial focus and warm-up for that student. There are alternate days in which these classes can be made up.
3. Instructors reserve the right to dismiss any student from class due to unruly behavior, or refusal to work within the structure of the class.
4. Parental observation in studio B is limited to the window. The window will not be open at all times. Class dynamics vary. Some classes are extremely disturbed by visitors at the window. We reserve the right to close observation at the window by drawing the blinds at any time.
5. Classes held in studio A are hindered by clients speaking loudly, children running in the hallway, playing the piano or keeping the door open during cold weather. Respectful observation at the front of the studio is available at all times, and allows children and their parents to observe the role models of the older students.
6. The lost and found shoe supply is for emergency use only, not to replace the proper equipment which should be purchased for each child.


RESPECT is still a priority - even in the virtual format. We will continue our tradition of respect for each other as well as for the incredible art form which we are learning. This is why we are isolating. Each life is precious.

7. Parental disagreement with our instruction should be limited to private consultations and not done in front of the other clients or students.
8. There are no refunds on prepaid tuition. If you are unsure of our working methods we encourage you to observe a class before enrolling. If you are in some way unsatisfied with the student's progress later in the semester, it does NOT entitle you to a refund of tuition. Our instruction remains what it is, and the way each student reacts to this training is personal,
9. LBS is not a preschool. Classroom etiquette, the ability to wait for a turn, and the respect for others in the classroom is essential. Please work with your child in the awareness of these aspects of the dance training as well as the actual dance knowledge which is presented.
10. Parents, siblings and friends of students are asked to have the same respect within the waiting area. That includes clean up of toys if they were used, correct disposal of liquids in the restroom sinks rather than in the trash, and supervised use of the restroom areas and hallways for very young children.
11. If a parent does not remain with the student please be sure that we have all correct contact information, and that you arrive promptly to pick up the student. If an unusual circumstance prevents this, please call the desk: 423-1633 immediately. Students leaving the building should be dressed in STREET attire with the body appropriately covered and street shoes. This is a downtown business district.

This is a unique chance to glimpse the workings of our training from your home. Appreciate the work your dancer does, the concentration and energy - and applaud your dancer for this!
