We are committed to providing a fun and safe environment in which students can learn and develop their talents. We have taken steps to ensure that this goal is met by selecting qualified instructors. BYRD'S DANCE & GYMNASTICS, INC. provides educational opportunities to our staff to ensure accurate, updated techniques are taught to your children. While these standards will help ensure a safe environment at our facility, we must also ask parents and students to abide by our Rules and Policies.
PARKING AND SAFETY: The circle drive is ONE-WAY and is for drop-off and pick-up ONLY. Parents who enter the building to wait for their child during class or to conduct business at the front desk must park in the provided parking lot. Students who are getting picked-up in the circle drive must wait INSIDE the building for their ride. Please review the drop-off and pick-up safety rules with your child/children.
BEFORE & AFTER CLASS: Students are not permitted in the gym or the dance rooms before or after class. Students must wait for their instructor in the lobby before class begins.
DURING CLASS: Students are not allowed to use cell phones during class. If you need to reach your student during class please call our front desk.
DROP POLICY: We ask that you notify the front desk if your child will be dropping a class, otherwise we will continue to bill you for classes in which your child is enrolled.
MAKE-UP CLASSES: If your child is an active student & misses a class due to sickness, school or personal conflict, holiday or snow day, he or she can attend a make-up class in any age/level appropriate class on the schedule. You can schedule a make-up class with your child's teacher or at the front desk. For advanced level classes and competitive programs, make-up classes are not offered.
E-MAIL: We communicate with parents via e-mail so a valid e-mail address is necessary. We will only use your e-mail to keep you informed as it relates to your child and other happenings at our facility. We do not sell our e-mail addresses and will not send you junk e-mails.
FACILITY CLOSINGS: Labor Day Aug 30-Sept 2, Halloween Oct 31, Thanksgiving Nov 27-30, Winter Break Dec 23-Jan 3, Spring Break Mar 23-28. Inclement weather determinations will be made by 3:00 PM and will be posted to our website, voicemail, e-mail, and social media site. Monthly tuition rates are not pro-rated due to holidays, inclement weather days, sickness or vacations. Tuition is based on a four week month with no additional charges incurred for months that include five classes or the few times a student will attend class three times in a month due to holiday breaks.
ATTIRE: Appropriate dance/gymnastic attire is required. Please mark dance shoes clearly with your child's name so that lost or misplaced shoes can be returned to the rightful owner.
