Make-up and Cancelation Policy

Ballet is a physical art form that requires very exact body placement and muscle recognition to be successful. In addition to demonstrations and verbal instructions, we find that utilizing kinesthetic learning is extremely effective in helping children understand what they are being asked to do. If you are uncomfortable with professional contact, please discuss things with your instructor(s).
I understand that if my child will need restroom assistance that I must remain accessible either in the observation or waiting area during class time.
I give Dance Studio Elegance permission to use pictures that may include my child for promotional purposes. Most pictures are from a distance, of the entire class, and often times children are not easily recognizable. If the child is easily recognizable Dance Studio Elegance will contact you to be given permission.
Extreme Weather or Unexpected Interruption of Classes: We cancel classes if the Craven County School system cancels school or their after school activities. If the school must cancel classes due to extreme weather or events beyond our control such as power outages, the missed lessons will not be made up. We will notify families of any cancellations/schedule changes via our Dance Studio Elegance Facebook page as well as the e-mail address that we have on file for your family.
