Studio Policy

REGISTRATION & ENROLLMENT:

Upon enrollment, there is a non-refundable registration fee. Enrollment includes regular recital performances through the year. 

Our dance and musical department is a year round enrollment. Each class is catered to the individual with their own unique syllabus. Schedule a consultation to discuss your child's individual needs and how SSDM can best suit them. We have some amazing programs  available to choose from and the flexibility to design your own.

Our dance department is currently enrolling for 2019-2020 year! Register today!

TUITION & HOLIDAYS:

Tuition is due the 3rd of every month, but you will have until the 5th to pay. There will be a late fee of $25 charged to the account for fees paid after the 5th and for returned checks. Automatic payments are best to ensure you don't receive a late fee. 

SSDM is closed for all major holidays, following the Lewisville ISD holidays. Some months you will receive 5 lessons, the tuition does not change as we balance it out with holiday closing. We do not pro-rate for those months. 

MAKEUP LESSONS:

RECITAL & PERFORMANCES:

At SSDM we want to ensure that you and your child have the best recital experience and a quality environment for the performers. Each family is required to pay a recital and additional fees may apply. For Dance students, costumes are required to purchase at the teachers discretion.

 

Students must be prepared for recitals. If a student has missed lessons and is not ready to perform they will not be able to participate. Our recital and showcases are an important part of your child's development. It builds confidence and a sense of community. It is always good to see other like-minded performances, especially from peers.

 

DRESS CODE:

For dance students, we require hair to be pulled back or in a bun. No gum, jewelry allowed in the dance room. Please keep valuables at home. Please contact the front office  for dress code for each particular dance class.

A student that withdraws and then wishes to return will be required to pay the full registration fee again. 

Private Makeup lessons must be made up within 2 weeks. For private students, there will be one private makeup class per quarter,  after that, makeup lessons will be group lessons. If you plan to miss two or more lessons please contact the front office to rearrange a more suitable time to accommodate your schedule.
