Studio Policies

About the School Year

PSD (Payette’s School of Dance) sets up a tentative schedule based on enrollment projections. There will be adjustments required. We appreciate your cooperation and patience.

Class Specifics

Class times are based on a 55 minute hour and are subject to change. Seven students are required to form a class.

Withdrawal Policy

One month notice in writing before the 4th of the month is required to discontinue a class. Withdrawal slips must be filled out and turned in to the front desk attendance box.

Days of Operation
 
If the Puyallup Schools are closed due to snow or ice, there will be no dance classes. Dance classes will be re-scheduled, to make up these days. If you need to verify if class will be in session or not…Holidays, Breaks, etc. please refer to Year-Long Calendar.

ATTENDANCE

Make-up Policy
If a student is going to be absent from a class, please call the studio. It is the responsibility of the Student/Parent to arrange for make-up classes. Classes can be made up by sitting in on a similar type/level class. Contact the Instructor or Studio Director within 4-weeks to make arrangements. There is no refund for missed classes by the student.
  • If an Instructor must miss a class, the class will either have a substitute teacher or the class will be cancelled and scheduled for a make-up session.

APPAREL/DRESS REQUIREMENTS

 
Why have requirements? 
It is important to follow the dress code at PSD for a couple of reasons. The body must be observed by the instructor and this is difficult when loose clothing hide the movements. Secondly; Discipline of the Art requires a “Standard”.

  • Pink Tights for Girls, Black for Boys
  • Pink Shoes for Girls, Black for Boys
  • Girls Hair in a High Bun

*PSD ENFORCES A DRESS CODE. FAILURE TO WEAR REQUIRED DANCEWEAR TO CLASS COULD RESULT IN STUDENTS BEING ASKED TO SIT OUT OF CLASS.
