ATTITUDES DANCE STUDIO
Tuition is based on a 9 1/2 month program (Fall class schedule runs from Mid August until Recital, which is typically the last weekend in May or first weekend in June) Tuition is divided into monthly payments. We have already taken into account holidays and possible bad weather days. If your student misses a class due to personal reasons, you may contact the office to schedule a make up day in a similar class. However, no tuition discount will be given for classes missed by a student. Any student paying tuition for the entire year by the end of August will receive a 10% discount. Pre-paid tuition is non refundable.
Studio is closed for the following Holidays: Labor Day, Fall break, Thanksgiving break, Winter break, Spring break, Memorial day.
Bad weather days: The studio typically closes for bad weather days if Collinsville Public Schools are closed but always check our website or the studio Facebook page (some times the school closes for extreme cold morning temperature that effect kids at the bus stop, which does not effect us).

Thank you for entrusting your child's dance education to us. This year marks our 26th year of offering dancers the opportunity to train under our wonderful faculty of dance artists. We are looking forward to working with your child and sharing our love of dance with them.
We offer dance education for children 2 & up. Our classes include tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, hip hop, clogging, lyrical and combination classes for beginning students. The goal of our studio is to teach technique, grace, rhythm and coordination through hard work, training, creativity and fun. As well as developing a well rounded person who has discipline, self confidence and a positive self esteem.
In order to provide a safe and positive learning experience for your child during his/her participation in our dance program, it is important for both, parents and student to understand what will be expected as well as what you can expect from us. Please read and discuss the contents of this book with your child before your child?s first day of class. Our hope is that the majority of your questions will be answered in the coming pages.

Studio & Lobby Rules
- Students are required to arrive at least 5 minutes before class begins in order to prepare for class (get your shoes on etc.) Dancers must wait quietly in the lobby, noise in the lobby is very distracting to the class in session.
- Please remember chairs are for sitting. Please don?t use chairs for holding your dance bags/shoes, etc.
- No food or drink, except bottled water will be allowed in the classroom. NO GUM is allowed in class.
- Remove street shoes before entering the class and never wear dance shoes outside.
- Be courteous of other students entering or exiting the classroom.
- No jewelry in class. No cell phones in class, if you have a cell phone it must be kept in your dance bag and be on silent.
- Do not bring toys into class. This is very distracting.
- It is very important that all dance bags and shoes are labeled with your students name.
- Proper dance attire and shoes are required for each class. ( See class attire on Class schedule page)
- Respect for instructors is a must. Any student showing disrespect to the instructor or class may be asked to leave.
- No visitors in the classroom. Parents and friends may watch from the lobby.
- Parents, make sure young dancers go to the restroom before class.

- Please take pride in our studio by keeping it clean. Pick up any messes you make and throw away all trash before leaving. Anyone causing damages to the studio will be responsible for the cost of fixing it.
- Please do not interrupt class to correct your child. The instructor will take care of it, if they cannot they will bring the student out to you.
- If you must pick your child up early please let someone in the office know and they will get them for you.
- Please remember this is a ten month program. During March, April and May we are preparing for our recital. Signing up for spring sports can interfere with your child's commitment to their recital numbers.

- Please arrive promptly to pick up your dancer at the end of their class.
