2022-2023 SHOWCASE SEASON POLICIES

 

DANCEWEAR

 

Dancewear may be ordered through Legacy Dance or a reputable retailer.  See below for approved dance attire.

 

The only acceptable dance shoe brands are Weissman, Revolution, Bloch, and Capezio. Dance shoes must be purchased from a reputable dancewear retailer and not from stores like Walmart, Target or Amazon (unless it is one of the approved brands). 

 

ALL DANCEWEAR, especially shoes, MUST BE LABELED on the inside.  With shoes being changed before, during, and after class, it is easy to have shoes misplaced.  Write names with a Sharpie or on a piece of tape stuck inside the shoe.

 

After Back-to-Dance Nights in August, dancewear orders will be made at the beginning of every month. Please email info@legagydancecolorado.com if you need to re-order anything.  Payment for re-ordered items will only be accepted via the student’s Parent Portal.  Instructors will not have cash boxes available, so cash will not be accepted.  Local tax will be added where applicable.

CLASS READINESS

 

Dance shoes should never be worn outdoors. Students should arrive a few minutes prior to the start of class to allow time to change into dance shoes and line up outside the dance room.

 

A small dance bag, backpack, or reusable shopping bag, is recommended to contain student’s dancewear.  It is very helpful to keep some extra hair ties, etc, in this bag for emergency days!

 

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CHILD TO THE BATHROOM BEFORE CLASS. Instructors cannot take them during class. Pull-ups are encouraged for any children who are not independent in toileting. If bathroom needs arise, we will attempt to contact the parent first (for Toddlers &  Level 1 Combo). In cases of emergency, a Legacy or CVPRD staff member may accompany the student to the restroom but will not enter the bathroom or assist in any way.

 

Students are expected to follow directions and be respectful of all students and teachers. Failure to comply will result in time-outs during class, and students may be required to try dance again at a later date.

 

PARENT OBSERVATION

 

Parents are only allowed in the dance studio on designated Parent Observation Days. Observation weeks for this season are scheduled for November 14-19 and March 13-18.

 

Parents agree to follow all rec center policies regarding entrance and waiting in the building. The Carbon Valley Firestone Studio does not have a waiting lobby, parents will need to drop off students at the start of class and then return to pick up. At the Carbon Valley Frederick Recreation Center, parents may wait in the front lobby but may not wait in the hallway outside the studio. The Fort Lupton Recreation Center does not permit waiting upstairs. Parents understand that these regulations may change throughout the season.

 

ATTENDANCE POLICY

 

Students should only attend class when in good health and ready to learn.  This includes being free of fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or any contagious illness for a minimum of 48 hours prior to class.

 

Absences should be reported through the Dance Studio Pro parent portal by clicking on Attendance > Report Absence.  

 

From September-December, if students need to miss class for some reason (i.e. illness or vacation) they may make-up the class by attending a same-level class at any of our locations, regardless of where they normally attend.  From January-May, make-up classes are not offered as each class is learning their unique showcase dance.

 

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

 

If a decision is made to cancel class, it will be posted no later than 8am for morning classes, and 3pm for afternoon/evening classes.  Parents with students in affected classes will be emailed, and it will also be posted on our social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram).

 

TUITION POLICY

 

CVPRD students will have tuition collected through the Dance Studio Pro Parent Portal on the first of each month, Sept-May.

 

FLRC students will pay monthly tuition through FLRC and be subject to their policies.  Any extra fees (registration, costume) will be withdrawn through the parent portal, directly from Legacy School of Dance.

 

CVPRD policy requires a different rate for non-district students.  Monthly fees are shown in the tuition schedule below.


 

TUITION SCHEDULE

 

30 minute classes - District $45 Non-District $56

45 minute classes - District $50 Non-District $62

COSTUME FEE PAYMENT

 

CVPRD and FLRC students will all have costume fees automatically deducted November 10, 2022 from their Parent Portal Account.

LATE FEE POLICY

 

Parents are expected to ensure that credit cards registered with Dance Studio Pro are current and sufficient funds are available.  

 

If cards are expired/declined, Legacy Dance will provide one courtesy notification via email which must be corrected within 1 week or a late fee of $10 per day will be assessed.  If fees are not paid after 2 weeks, the dancer will not be allowed to participate in class until charges and late fees are paid.

 

DROP POLICY

 

Students who wish to drop a class must provide notice to info@legacydancecolorado.com at least 1 week prior to the start of class (for mini-sessions) or month (for recital season) to stop future tuition charges. No partial refunds will be given for students who drop mid-month.

 

SHOWCASE POLICY

 

Students who withdraw after March 1st will be charged both April and May tuition regardless of attendance.  Each showcase dance is choreographed with all classmates in mind, and late season drops are strongly discouraged as they impact all dancers in the class.

 

In order to showcase all of the amazing hard work of the dancers in our program, Legacy School of Dance will most likely be split into two show groups on the same Spring Showcase weekend. By signing up your dancer(s) in one or more classes, please be aware that there is a possibility that your dancer(s) may be required to participate in both show groups.

 

I have read and agree to Legacy School of Dance 2022-2023 Season Policies.
