What is the attendance policy?
Weekly attendance is necessary to provide the reinforcement and continuity of instruction needed to teach an individual the coordinated skills of a dancer. An award will be given at the last class to those students who have perfect attendance.
Can a student make up a missed class?
A make-up class schedule is distributed to each student in early October. This schedule provides flexibility and additional class opportunities for unavoidable absences or for students who would benefit from extra help. After January, it is only possible to offer make-up classes for groups performing the same dance routine in the recital. This schedule is posted in January.
Can parents observe their child's class?
Parents are invited to special observation classes two times during the dance season. The first one is in mid-November and the second coincides with costume distribution week, which is usually 2-3 weeks prior to the recital. Observation day for the spring program is the last class of the session.
What holidays do you observe?
The Dance Inn generally follows the Lexington Public School calendar and snow day policy, however we do not close for Monday holidays as there are just too many. Due to the early recital, CLASSES ARE HELD during February vacation. A calendar for the dance season is distributed in September. Check the calendar or call if you are still unsure.
Can my child try a class?
Yes, any child can try a class before making a commitment. The child must attend the FIRST class of the session, and make a final decision by the 3rd lesson. The Dance Inn charges $20.00 to try a class, which is used towards tuition if you decide to register for the full session.
Does The Dance Inn produce an annual recital?
An annual production is held in March or early April. Students will be notified in September of the exact date. Costumes are ordered in November. You must notify the studio IN WRITING by November 1st if your child chooses not to participate. Tickets for reserved seats are ordered by mail.
