The following guidelines apply to all classes offered through All That! Dance Company. We want your student to receive the best possible education in dance. In order to provide a positive and supportive environment for our dancers, we ask that parents and students please review our policies and let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!
Communication with our families is so important to us! We send monthly newsletters by email and these are posted on our website as well. Please add “firstname.lastname@example.org” as a contact in your email and let us know if you are not receiving updates. We also post updates to our website frequently, and we’d love to have you “like” us on Facebook to hear the latest chat on what’s going on at the studio.
When you register with ATD, a parent portal is created for you. All account information, emails, and updates are sent through this parent portal. Please make sure we have your current email address and that you check your portal for updates.
Dance attire and dance shoes should be worn to class each week. Please see the Studio Dress Code for details by class. Each class has a designated shoe that should be used for both class and performance. A solid black camisole leotard is recommended for female dancers in all classes.
We're sure your dancer will love their classes, but we also know sometimes life just happens. If your dancer has to drop class for any reason, please notify us in writing 30 days before they need to withdraw. We hold a spot for your dancer, which prevents other dancers from registering, so you must formally drop the class through our office, or you will still be responsible for tuition. You will be charged for a full month of tuition regardless of when during the month your dancer drops. No tuition will be refunded or prorated.
Students should be ready to dance at the time that class is scheduled to begin and give respect and full attention to their teacher during class. Students will be supportive and complimentary to fellow dancers. No profanity or other inappropriate conversations are allowed at the studio. All That! is a family studio with students of all ages and older student are role models for our younger ones. No gum or any other type of food or drink, except a water bottle, should be brought in to the studio. Cell phones must be turned off when entering class and can be used after class in the lobby area of the studio to contact parents, but the dance studio is a cell phone free zone.
The first class of each month is open to observation. All other classes are closed to observers. Generally, students are more focused and perform better without observers present. We want parents to be involved in their child’s dance education and to feel welcome in the studio at all times. However, a constant audience every week can be intimidating for some students and inhibit their progress. Therefore, we do ask parents to limit their observation to the first class of each month. If there are extenuating circumstances, please speak directly with your child’s instructor. Parents are welcome in the lobby or observation rooms of the studio at any time.
Autopay is required for tuition enrollment. Tuition is paid the first class of the month. Tuition is budgeted for the entire ten month season and then averaged over our ten-month season and does not increase or decrease based on the number of classes in that month. Tuition is not prorated for absences or holidays. Make up classes can be taken in another class of similar level for classes missed. Tuition is due by the 7th of each month and will be automatically charged to your credit card for your convenience. Tuition not paid by the 10th of the month will be charged a $ 10.00 per month late fee. Tuition is not invoiced by mail; families are responsible for making their tuition payments each month. Tuition must be paid in full in order for students to receive costumes and to participate in the annual recital. Accounts that are past due for a period of ninety days or longer will be turned over to a collections agency and collections fees will apply.
Tuition payments are based on average one-hour classes during our regular season from September through June. These tuition rates apply to our 2019-2020 season only.

We want our dancers to dance their best, and in order to do this, they need to dress their best! Our dress code applies to all classes and rehearsals offered through All That! Dance Company. We pride ourselves on professional, quality programming for our dancers. Please let us know if you have any questions about what your child needs for class.
Students should come to class in dance attire with their dance shoes on each week. If your dancer has long hair, please pull it back from their face so it doesn’t get in their way. Dancers can wear any color or style of dancewear, but we ask that they do not wear jeans, skirts, or other clothing that they can’t move easily in. Every one of our dancers deserves individual attention and feedback — in order to do that, we want to focus on their dancing, not distracting clothing. We ask that dancers wear a leotard underneath all clothing, with no bare midriffs and no bra straps or other undergarments showing. We know that families invest a great deal in their dancer and we appreciate it! We choose the same required footwear for class use as they will need for performances so that you do not need to purchase additional items. We also strongly recommend that each dancer purchase a solid black camisole leotard for class and performance wear. Specific requirements by class are as follows:
