Youth Enrichment Policies
Attire: Each class has different specifications for required attire. Check your class description on our website for details. There is no gum allowed and jewelry that could break or cause injury is discouraged.
Age divisions: Our classes are designed based on age appropriateness and not ability levels. Our instructors will cater to advanced skills, but for the purposes of maintaining the best experience for the entire class, age divisions are strictly adhered to. Exceptions must be approved by the Youth Enrichment Coordinator and the Instructor. Age divisions are based on the child's age on the 1st day of the semester, with a 2 week grace period.
Make-ups: Each student is gifted one FREE PASS to try another age appropriate class per semester to be used in the event of class absence. In the event that instructor is absent, we will make every effort to provide a substitute, however, if the class is canceled and there are no available make-up times, students are gifted an additional FREE PASS.
Trials: We would love for you to encourage your friends to try our classes. Anyone may try an age-appropriate class at any point during the semester. However, trials must be scheduled through the Youth Enrichment Coordinator at least one day in advance. A student may not try the same class more than one time in the same semester.
Refunds: Families are entitled to a full refund prior to the first day of classes, less a $30 cancellation fee. If the student drops after the first class, there is an $18 charge per class attended. There will be no refunds offered after the third week of classes. A student may transfer classes at any point during the semester, free of charge.
Pro-rated Tuition: There is no pro-rated tuition for less than 4 classes missed.
End of Semester Reception: Each class will participate in our end of semester reception. There will be awards, performances and recognition of the accomplishments of your wonderful children!
Semester Reports: Each specialist will provide a report at the beginning, middle and end of the semester to let you know what is being worked on in class.
