POLICIES

COMMUNICATION METHODS
All program updates will be sent through email. Please keep an updated email address on file. You can also stay updated through our Instagram account @citydancekids and Facebook account @CDC-Youth-Program.

CLASS TRANSFERS
Class changes are subject to the approval of our Program Director and to space availability. If you wish to transfer or change classes please email youth@citydancecorps.com. We will try our very best to accommodate you. City Dance Corps reserves the right to deny transfers if we feel the quality of the class and the student's progression will be compromised.  If your child is placed in a dance class by the teacher, it is because the teacher believes it is the best option for your child’s dance education, transfers will not be permitted in this case. All transfers must be requested no later than 3 weeks after date of enrollment.

COSTUME FEES
Dancers in our annual dance program ages 6 - 16 will perform in an annual recital. All performers will be required to purchase a costume that will be due in Term 2. The costume fee is $125+hst.

LOST AND FOUND
City Dance Corps is not responsible for any lost personal items, including but not limited to: jewelry, clothing, shoes, school books, etc. Please help us return lost items to you by labeling every item that comes into the studio. Please note that we clear out the lost and found on a monthly basis.

YEAR-END RECITAL
Information on year-end recital will be released in Term 2. Participation in recital will require enrollment Term 3.


LEVEL 2 CLASSES
To participate in a Level 2 class, students must be enrolled in a minimum of two classes per week. The reason for this policy is to elevate the technical level of students wishing to take dance beyond a recreational level. Advanced technique, strong fundamentals and elevated artistry and movement can only be developed and achieved by studying dance more frequently than one hour per week. To be in a Level 2 class indicates that the student wants to be challenged, wants to study dance further and take it more seriously and wants to grow stronger in their dance form. Taking more than one class/week to grow into an advanced dancer is basic industry practice. Please note, that the student’s second class can either be any of our other Level 2 classes (dependent on instructor's recommendations) or any of our Level 1 classes. The second class can either be within the same dance form, or completely different to their first class choice. We recommend taking classes in a different dance form in order to build a well-rounded dancer.

RAD EXAMINATIONS
To participate in RAD examinations, students must be enrolled in a minimum of two Ballet classes per week.

INTERRUPTION IN CLASSES
City Dance Corps takes no responsibility for any actions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the event of a forced shutdown or interruption to our classes, we will transition all remaining classes in the term to a virtual platform. No refunds will be provided as all services will continue online.

LATE ATTENDANCE
Due to our strict COVID-19 safety protocols, late arrivals to class will not be permitted into the studio.

There will be no walk-ins.  All registration will be pro-rated once a dancer enrols in the program after a trial pass.
