Allegro Studio Policies and Procedures
Refund Policy: If a dance class student is withdrawn from class after the first class session, a 100% refund will be given
(minus the $20.00 nonrefundable once-a-year registration fee). If a student is withdrawn after the second class session
takes place, a prorated refund will be given. After the third class session, no refund will be given.
Attendance: Everyone is expected to arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the beginning of their class, to prepare for class.
Regular attendance is expected, but especially during the summer it is understandable if dancers miss. There are no
makeup clases for those who miss unless the class is canceled by AEDC, for instance, because of a holiday or inclement
Children are to remain in the building until parents arrive to pick them up. Small children should remain on the 2nd floor
in the observation area until a parent arrives. The studio staff is not responsible for the children once they leave the
studio, as there are additional classes beginning. Parents are welcome to wait in the parent observation area for their
children, if they wish.
Dance class students and AEDC team members should enter the building and go directly upstairs to the studio. If they
would like to use the main floor changing room, they can leave their clothing there or bring them upstairs where there is a
coat rack for jackets, bags and shoes. You may bring purses into the studio
You must be respectful of all other activities taking place in the complex. No loud talking or fooling around, as you will
disturb the gymnastic training that is taking place. Absolutely no running in the building, please.
NO FOOD OR WATER BOTTLES IN THE DANCE STUDIO! There is a water fountain just outside the studio doors in the
observation room. If you bring food/snacks or water, you may sit at a tale in that room to take your break.
