Full tuition payment is due before classes begin. You can make up to 3 monthly payments for Sept 1st, Oct 1st and Nov 1st. If you are making installments, you can only do so by cheques. All post-dated cheques must be received before classes begin. Remix Dance Academy does not mail out reminders or bills for tuition. Any unpaid balance will result in a student's removal from classes.
REFUND POLICY & WITHDRAWLS
The parent/guardian must communicate with the director that he/she will no longer be continuing a class. There will be a $25.00 administrative fee applied to all refunds issued. Partial refund is possible if the request is made no later than the beginning of the third class. After that date, NO REFUNDS will be authorized. Paid tuition is non-refundable. There are no refunds given for missed classes, due to bad weather or other student absences. T-shirt fees will not be refunded after October 15th.
A $30.00 fee will be charged for each returned cheque. After 1 returned cheque, cash will be requested. Students with tuition in arrears will not be allowed to participate in the year end shows.
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT
Early Bird discounts are only allocated to our students registering for the Non-Competitive Hip Hop School Year Program. All Competitive students must pay the full competitve price.
DROP OFF AND PICK UP POLICIES
Small children need to be escorted to and from the dance class. Please do not encourage your child to find you out in the parking lot. Never leave your child unattended in any part of the school, at any time.
Students should not be dropped off more than 15 minutes before their class time begins. Students must wait inside the school until they are picked up. Instructors cannot be responsible for students before or after their scheduled class.
Brothers, sisters, boyfriends and friends are not allowed to be loitering in the school while classes are being held. Only parents can be in the school while the classes are running.
Parents, legal guardians of minors, students and adult students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on school property resulting from normal dance activity or any other activity conducted by the students before, during or after class time.
SICKNESS / INJURY
In the event of a dancer falling ill, please keep them home from class in order to reduce the chance of spreading the illness. If a dancer is injured they are encouraged to observe class.
ATTENDANCE / PUNCTUALITY
Consistent attendance enhances the dance experience. Dance is a team sport and therefore poor attendance on the part of an individual effects the whole group. Please make every effort to ensure that your child attends class every week.
If a student misses three classes throughout the season, we will call to discuss our concerns. If four classes are missed throughout the season and we feel that the overall number of classes missed is too high, or if consistent lateness is a problem, we reserve the right to ask the student to discontinue. In these circumstances, refunds will not be granted. If you expect to miss a class due to illness or conflicts, please phone or email the studio. Please be on time. If you are more than 10 minutes late, the dancer may be asked to sit out due to safety reasons.
Parents are not allowed to watch in windows or sit in while class is in progress. We find that dancers are less distracted and perform better without an audience during regular classes. An exception will be made during the first month for our Lil Elements classes.
BEHAVIOR and ETIQUETTE
Any disruptive behavior or harassment will not be tolerated. Should this occur, your child may be asked to leave the building. It is important to ensure the studio is a positive learning environment for all students.
The following disciplinary policy is in effect:
- Students & Parents understand that there will be no foul language used toward instructors, students or parents.
- Students will respect and be courteous to their instructors and fellow students.

- Please pick up after yourself. Help keep your dance room clean.
