Dress Code
Proper dance attire and dance shoes must be worn in Dance Class at all times. Our dance dress code was created to minimize distractions, allow dancers to focus on instruction and ensure dancer safety. Names MUST be written in all items.
Our dress code will be strictly enforced.

Tuition
Class fees are invoiced by the term. The full term invoice must be paid, regardless of the number of classes the student wishes to attend (or actually attends). There will be no refunds, credits, or transfers if the full term isn't completed. For your convenience, the term can be broken down into 9 monthly payments. When enrolling in our classes, you are committing to a service contract for a complete term.
Mobile Bay Dance Academy does not offer refunds for cancellations.

Dance Tuition is always due before the 1st dance class.
For your convenience, we have a Monthly Payment Option, Semester Payment Option as well as a Yearly Payment Option.
You will not receive a monthly invoice.
Please make sure you pay on time to avoid late fees. Tuition is based on a yearly rate, from September through May/June, paid in nine payments. Some months have three classes while other months have five classes. Monthly payment installments remain the same throughout the year. We do not prorate tuition for any reason.

Holidays and closures are already calculated into your nine payments. If joining a class after the first week of that month, the full payment installment must be made for that month and makeups in similar classes are encouraged for any missed weeks. There are absolutely no refunds. If at any time, due to the Covid-19, we have move to virtual dance classes, tuition is still due and classes will be held during regular class times.
Class Attendance
Students must attend classes regularly for their own benefit as well as the growth and development of the class as a whole. Our dance classes are based on individual commitment; however they are fueled by the entire class.
By coming to class we assume that all students are healthy and able to dance. If your child has a sprained ankle, cast, etc. PARENTS should let us know about the situation in advance and we will let your child observe the class.

No Visitors In Dance Class
No Parents or visitors are allowed in the dance classroom. Dancers are more focused and perform better with less people in the room. Dance is also about learning independence. You will see your dancer grow so much in confidence from their dance 
classes. If your child is feeling anxious about being in class without you, you can help by explaining to your child that they can show you what they learned after class. 

Communication
We work hard to make the dance experience organized and fun. Keeping you informed is one of our primary goals. Please read all newsletters and other dance class information. The studios primary method of communication with parents is via e-mail. If you are not receiving any e-mails from the us, then please contact us to ensure your current e-mail address is on file. Please add the studio e-mail address info@mobilebaydanceacademy.com
