2021-2022 SHOWCASE SEASON POLICIES
Dancewear may be ordered through Legacy Dance or a reputable retailer. See below for approved dance attire.
Dance shoes must be purchased from a reputable dancewear retailer and not from stores like Walmart, Target, or Payless. The only acceptable dance shoe brands are Revolution, Bloch, and Capezio.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

No dress up costumes or dresses that are not intended specifically for dance class or recitals. For example, students may not come in an Elsa costume that is intended for pretend play.
The Free Dress Weeks for this season are:

October 25 - 29
December 13 - 17
January 24 - 28
February 21 - 25

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.
All hair must be completely pulled back from the face in either a ponytail or bun. For very short hair, clips or a headband will be acceptable.
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 and Level 1). 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.
Parents are only allowed in the dance studio on designated Parent Observation Days. Observation weeks for this season are scheduled for November 15-19 and March 14-18.
Parents agree to follow all rec center policies regarding entrance and waiting in the building. Parents understand that these regulations may change throughout the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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 recital piece.
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).
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.

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.
Students who wish to drop a class must provide notice to email@example.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.
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 shows 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 both shows.
