Our short months, like December and May are made up by months that have more than 4 weeks. Therefore, full tuition is expected to be paid September thru May.

  PERFECT ATTENDANCE...a student can earn a “perfect attendance” trophy by attending at least half of every class they are enrolled in. An "excused" absence can be given in the case of sickness with a doctor's note, that must be submitted no less than 2 weeks following the absences and no more than 3 excused absences (for the year) will be accepted. All other absences will be non-excused - including field trips, funerals, vacations, etc.  It is understood that the “fault” is usually not the dancer’s but abuses in the past make other exceptions impossible. This studio tries to encourage dancers to grow into responsible adults and some of life’s hard lessons are “one cannot always get what one wants” and “life is full of hard choices”. Perfect attendance trophies are presented during the annual spring recital. ALL STUDENTS RECEIVE A PARTICIPATION TROPHY AT RECITAL.  

  • HOLIDAYS...Danceology follows the Suwannee & Hamilton County Public School Calendar! Classes are not held during school holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break. Classes may or may not be held during weekday holidays and Teacher Workdays. Students will be notified prior to the holiday if there will be classes.
  • Arrive on time for classes. Tardiness is a distraction to others in the class and embarrassing for the late dancer. Dancers should not be dropped off more than 15 minutes prior to their first class and should be picked up promptly after the final class. Dancers must stay inside the waiting room until their ride has arrived.
  • Dancers may wear a variety of dance apparel in various colors for weekly classes: leotards with or without skirts, bikatards, crop tops with jazz shorts or leggings, etc.  The “studio uniform” can also be worn for weekly classes. Tights are mandatory for every class, unless wearing ankle length leggings! Gym shorts and t-shirts without a leotard underneath is frowned upon.  Decorative tank tops can be worn over leotards & crop tops.  HOODIES ARE NOT ALLOWED IN CLASS!
  • Dancers must wear their hair in either a bun, braid, or ponytail for all classes. Dancers should keep a supply of ponytail holders and clips/ bobby pins in their bag.
  • Dancers are encouraged to have a specific bag that is their “dance bag”. There are many styles available for order and in many of the local stores. We ask that the dancers name be on the bag somewhere to help cut down on confusion of whose stuff is whose. 
  • Visitors & Parents are always welcome but must stay in the waiting room. If dancers become distracted by commotion in the waiting room or doorway, the door will be shut. Anyone being loud or rambunctious in the waiting room will be asked to leave.
  • NO FOOD OR DRINK INSIDE THE STUDIO, except water!
  • There is to be no use of drugs, cigarettes or foul language while inside or around the vicinity of Danceology.
