Low Enrollment/Cancellations: A class may be cancelled if enrollment does not meet its predetermined minimum. Classes must have at least three (3) students enrolled by the end of the third week of classes. Should this be the case, participants will be notified no later than the end of third week of the session. If the participant is unable to move to another class, the remainder of prepaid tuition will be refunded.
Participant Withdrawal: Tuition refunds will be given when a participant withdraws by the second day of their registered class(es). A processing fee may be applied to card repayments. If a withdrawal notice is submitted to the School Administrator after that date, the participant will receive tuition credit with the School of Dancing Wheels good for one year from the date of withdrawal.
Weather Related and Emergency Closing: In the event of a weather related or emergency closing, participants whose classes were cancelled will not be refunded, but may take any other class as a make-up class at any point during the remainder of the session (with written notice given to the School Administrator).
Monthly Payment Plans: Participants have the option to have tuition spread out into monthly payments with a commitment to the entire session. Monthly payments must be made by the end of the first week for each applicable month. A one-time payment plan fee of $10 will be applied.
Make-up Lessons: Should you wish to make-up a missed class either before or after an absence, you may attend any other offered class during the week with approval from the School Administrator. Requests must be submitted at least 48 hours before the desired class.
Private Lessons: Participants desiring private lessons must contact the School Administrator for scheduling and pricing.
Maximum Consecutive Absences: If a student is absent from three (3) consecutive classes without prior notice of no less than three (3) hours before class time, the student may be asked to not return to that enrolled class, at the discretion of the School’s administration. If a student is dismissed from a course after three (3) absences, any prepaid tuition will not be refunded. The participant will receive tuition credit with the School of Dancing Wheels good for one year from the date of withdrawal.
COVID-19 Health and Safety Practices:
Updated April 2023
The School of Dancing Wheels is dedicated to ensuring a healthy and safe environment for all class participants. Our policies will be updated as needed throughout the year.
The wearing of masks will be optional for all students, teachers, and parents/guardians. We will notify you if this policy changes to masks required. Please be considerate of everyone’s decision regarding masks. Bring your own mask. A limited number of disposable masks are available on an as needed basis.
Regular sanitization of all studios and equipment (ballet barres, floors, music systems, door handles, etc.) will occur, with regular breaks provided to allow for students to wash and sanitize their hands.
For parents or guardians accompanying students to the studios, social distancing will be maintained while in the lobby, kitchen, dressing rooms, and all other common areas.
The School of Dancing Wheels follows local and national guidelines with regards to quarantining and isolating due to COVID-19 exposure or positive testing.
- Regardless of vaccination status, we ask that you quarantine for a period of 5 days from the time of known exposure. You are encouraged to take class virtually during this time.
- You may return to the studio after the 5-day period if you remain symptom free and have a negative test result. We ask that you wear a mask when you do return to the studio until 10 days from known exposure.
- Continue to monitor symptoms and do not come to in-person classes if you are feeling unwell.
- Please do not come to the studio if you or anyone in your family or with whom you’ve had close contact feels unwell.
- If a student, teacher, or parent/guardian at The School of Dancing Wheels tests positive for COVID-19, we will make efforts to immediately notify all individuals who may be considered a close contact so that they can follow recommended guidance.
