School Term

Classes begin Monday, August 17, 2020

Our school year spans over 10 months. First payment will be due at registration, remainder to be paid monthly October through May. 

Inclement weather

If school is dismissed or cancelled due to weather there will be no classes held that day.

Check the website or Closeline for announcements.

disciplinary policy

We reserve the right to dismiss any student who is or becomes a discipline problem.

class attendance

is an important part of your education

Attending class regularly is important to any program in order to learn and advance properly. If you miss class due to an illness, make-up classes may be arranged. No refunds are given for classes missed. We do expect to be notified if a student is going to be absent from class.

Intermediate, Junior, Senior Classes

(school grades 5th and up)

Any lesson missed must be made up within 1 week, or prior to the next lesson, to ensure that the student maintains consistent strength. Students who do not make up absences within the 1 week grace period will be dropped from class.

There will be a $15.00 reinstatement fee.

Arranging and attending a make-up class is the sole responsibility of the student.

NOTE: Absences after January 31 jeopardize the quality of the dance recital numbers. Students must maintain 90% attendance to participate in the recital. Therefore students will be allowed no more than two absences per class for the remainder of the year. These absences are not to be made-up. Any absence beyond two will drop the student below the 90% attendance ratio in that class.

In emergency situations, where absences exceed two per class, a private lesson will need to be arranged with the instructor of the class at $20.00 per 30 minute lesson. This will qualify for an hour class lesson. The private lesson must be made up, or scheduled with the teacher, within a 7-day period following the missed class which dropped the student below 90% attendance.

Graduation Solo


Graduation candidates from the studio must:

  • Have completed a minimum of 800 class hours.
  • Have passed all of the Cecchetti student examinations I-III.
  • Have maintained a minimum of three classes per week – one class each in ballet, tap and jazz – the four years prior to graduation.
  • Perform ballet, tap and jazz in the recital, in at least three of their remaining four years. Senior year is mandatory.
  • Have completed high school graduation requirements.

Due to the unique technical curriculum of the Living Art Dance Studios, it is important that each student upholds our studio philosophy in all of their dance experiences. Therefore, students are not permitted to concurrently enroll in similar technique classes-curriculums of other dance studios/programs. Ethnic classes are an exception. Failure to comply with this policy will result in immediate dismissal from the studio.



You can register for classes all summer long.
