MYDT Policies


Registration

MYDT accepts new registrations throughout the school year.  If you begin in the middle of a month, your first month's tuition will be prorated.  Late registration may limit the possibility of participating in performances.


Tuition

Tuition is due the first week of each month.  MYDT does not mail bills for tuition unless it is past due.  Signs will be posted at the studio to remind you when payments are due.  NEW IN 2014: late fees will be charged for past due payments.  Please see Schedule & Tuition page for details.

If for any reason you should choose to quite before the end of the school year, you will be held responsible for tuition payments until you have notified MYDT management (Janet or Emily) either in person or via telephone or email.


Missed Classes

MYDT does not give credit for missed classes due to illness or vacation.  If you miss a class you may attend a make-up class if you would like.  Ask your dancer's teacher or MYDT management for suggestions of appropriate make-up classes.

Students in Levels 3-6 should contact their teachers or call MYDT if they are going to miss a class.  It is not necessary for students in other levels to do so.


Bad Weather

MYDT reserves the right to cancel classes due to inclement weather.  Should we do so, we will send an email to students, and post an outgoing message on our voicemail.  If we happen to close on a night you have class, you may take a make-up class for any cancelled classes.


Drop Off & Pick Up

Parents are welcome to wait in any of our waiting areas while their student is in class.  Should you decide to drop your dancer off, you may pick them up at our secure rear entrance if you'd like.  This door is locked from the outside so is only suitable for pick up.


Dress Code & Etiquette

Combo Classes: Female students in MYDT Combo classes should wear any color leotard and tights.  Skirts and shorts may be worn at the discretion of the teacher.  Hair should be pulled back off the face.   Male students should wear a solid color t shirt and black bottoms.  Tap and ballet shoes will be needed.

Hip Hop Classes: Male and female students may wear comfortable knit clothing that is easy to move in.  Jeans are not allowed.  Female students should pull hair back off face.  All students must wear clean tennis shoes that have not been worn outdoors!

Level 2-6 Classes: Please see your student's teacher for specific dress code requirements.  Different attire and shoe requirements exist for different levels and styles.
