Updated January 2017
Registration: A non-refundable fee of $35 per student, or $50 per family is due at the time of fall/spring registration to hold the class spot and cover administrative costs of processing that student.
Class Fees: All class fees are due on the 1st of each month. After the 5th of each month, a late fee of $10 will also be added to the student's account. A $30 fee will be charged for any returned checks. Students who are consistently late on payments, may be suspended from class. Class fees do not include art supplies, dancewear, shoes, costume costs, accessories, damage charges, recital fees, or recital tickets.
Trial Class: Classes may be attended as part of a trial program. A student can attend a trial class no more than two times per month. To set up a trial class, the student is required to call in ahead of time to ensure there will be adequate space in the class. Once a student exceeds the number of available trials per class per month (2) he or she will automatically become a monthly student and charged the semester rate each month. The student may no longer attend the class as a trial for the rest of the semester.
Financial Hardship: If there are any financial hardships, please contact the office to see if you qualify for additional discounts. Discounts are provided for multiple class enrollments and families.
Missed Group classes and refunds: There will be no refunds for classes missed. Semester payments are non-refundable. These payments hold a spot in class for each student. If a teacher cancels a class due to emergency, then the class will either be taught by a substitute or will be made up at a later date. If the student cannot attend the make up lesson provided by the instructor, they may attend another class as a makeup class provided there is a class available.
Missed Private Lessons and refunds: There will be no refunds for classes missed. Semester payments are non-refundable. These payments hold a spot in class for each student. If a teacher cancels a class due to emergency, then the class will either be taught by a substitute or will be made up at a later date. If the student cannot attend the make up lesson provided they can attend a master class at the end of the semester.
Weather Related Closures: ECAF will follow Williamson County Schools for weather related incidents. If ECA&F must close or cancel classes unexpectedly due to weather or other "Act of God" circumstances or related incidents, classes will not be made up.
No food or drink: No food or drink is allowed in the dance or music rooms. Food must be kept in the student lounge or kitchen area. Drinks that do not have a sealed lid are not allowed in the studio.
Student dress code: Dance students must wear clothing over their dance wear coming into and leaving the building. Dance shoes are to be worn only inside the studio. No bare-midriffs. Dance students wear hair pulled back (in a bun for ballet class) and appropriate dance wear.
Complete the class: Class will be dismissed by the teacher. If the class begins late, it may end late. If a student needs to be dismissed in class, they must ask the teacher. No student is to leave on their own accord without communication.
Behavior: Students are expected to treat their instructors and peers with respect. No foul language, bullying or continued disruptive behavior will be tolerated. Instructors will utilize the following Three Strike Rule in their classrooms:
1. Verbal Reprimand: Tell the student that their behavior is not acceptable.
2. Time Out: If the student does not respond to the verbal reprimand, then he or she should be removed from the activity and placed in time out.
3. Alert Office Staff - Removal
If the student remains unruly after the first two reprimands, it is the teacher's responsibility to notify the general manager or front office staff by text or phone call to come and escort the child out of the room and a parent will be notified immediately.
Class Changes: If it is necessary to change the student's class or private lesson schedule, the General Manager should be notified with a change request. They will work with the student to properly place them in a new class. The student's new schedule will begin the first week of the following month.
Withdrawals: The General Manager should be notified immediately if a student must withdraw from class. Refunds will not be given for students who withdraw in the middle of the month. As a courtesy, please allow 30 days notice from dropping any classes or private lessons. If a student chooses to withdraw from a class, he or she will not be able to attain a trial pass for that particular class until the following semester. To withdraw from a class, the office must be notified in writing before the end of the month, or the following month will be charged. A student is not withdrawn from class until the office has been notified in writing.
