Ballet Requirement

Ballet is required for all levels in order to enroll in any additional classes. Enrolling in Hip Hop and Acro is an exception to this rule. (i.e. - A student wanting to take a jazz, tap, or other foundational class, must also enroll in Ballet. A student only wanting to take hip hop or acro is not required to enroll in ballet.)

Annual Recital

Details on Premiere's 2021 annual recital can be found HERE. Rehearsals will be held the week prior to recital. All students that are enrolled in classes for the 2020-2021 season (Exceptions: Level I-IV Ballet, Pointe, Condition & Strength, Skills, Mommy & Me) are required to participate. 

Dancers choosing not to participate in Premiere's annual recital need to notify Premiere by December 1st in order to receive a refund on any recital payments (costume and / or recital fee). After December 1st, recital refunds will not be processed. Late notification will cease future recital payments. 

Class Attendance

Parents, please notify the studio by phone or email if your child is sick or planning to be absent from class. Missed classes cannot be made up or refunded. Make up classes will only be available if the studio is closed due to inclement weather or other extraneous circumstances. 

Observation of Classes

A viewing window is available for parents to watch classes. Please be respectful of studio property and others around you when in the waiting area.

Inclement Weather

If the weather is questionable please expect an email confirming any changes to the class schedule. Updates will be posted on our social media. When classes are cancelled, dancers are allowed to make-up their class by attending another class of the same level within 1 month of the cancellation date. Please email the office prior to attending a make-up class. 

Dropping a Class / Withdrawing

All dancers have 30 days to ensure continuation with classes. If dancers drop classes after the 30 day window, 25% of the remaining yearly balance will be due at the end of the current month. If this fee is not paid in full, tuition installments will continue to be billed as normal. Please remember dancing at Premiere is a 10 month commitment from September to June. Premiere Dance Project must be notified via writing if any classes need to be added/dropped or a student wishes to withdraw completely. Students enrolled in Mommy & Me may withdraw from class at any point during the year with 30 days of written notice.

 

Dancers who are injured and wish to withdraw from classes will be able to do so without incurring a "Drop Fee". Notification must be made 7 days prior to the 1st of the month. In order to complete this process, the studio must have a written doctor's note.  

Summer classes are non-refundable.

Premiere reserves the right to make schedule changes up to two weeks prior to class commencement. 

Class Cancellations

Classes with less than 5 students will be cancelled due to low enrollment. If this occurs, families will be refunded fully for their registration fee.
