6 WEEK SESSIONS / SUMMER AND WINTER CAMPS & CLASSES​

There is no specific dress code for short-term classes. Dancers should wear form-fitting moveable clothing. Bare feet or ballet shoes can be worn. Tap shoes are highly encouraged for tap classes.

CLASS POLICIES

BALLET REQUIREMENT

Ballet is required for all levels in order to enroll in any additional classes. Enrolling in Hip Hop, Acro & Musical Theatre 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.)

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 THIS WITHDRAWAL REQUEST FORM if any classes need to be dropped or a student wishes to withdraw completely. Students enrolled in Mommy & Me may withdraw from class at any point during the year with a 30 day notice via THIS WITHDRAWAL REQUEST FORM

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.

6 Week Sessions, Student Events, Winter & Summer Camps / Classes are non-refundable.

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

CLASS ATTENDANCE

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.

CLASS CANCELLATIONS

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

GENERAL POLICIES

BEHAVIOR / DISCIPLINE 

At Premiere we believe in building a nurturing and exciting environment that manifests students’ physical, emotional, cognitive and creative development. All students & families at Premiere are required to respect fellow classmates, teachers & staff. Disrespectful behavior may result in dismissal from class or the program as a whole.

ANNUAL RECITAL

Details on Premiere’s 2023 annual recital will be announced in January. 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.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

Premiere follows the Waukee School District on all weather related cancellations. If school is canceled and the weather improves by the afternoon, Premiere may hold classes. If the weather is questionable please expect an email confirming any changes to the class schedule by 2p that day. Updates will be posted on our social media. When classes are canceled, 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.
