Fall Program Information
A $25.00 registration fee applies to each student enrolled. Students will be provided with tap/ballet shoes
where applicable and a Mini Motions T-shirt.
Registration fee and first month payment will be necessary to guarantee a class position for your child.
Mini Motions Dance Center is continuing with our Automatic Payment System which is a more convenient, hassle-free way to pay your monthly tuition and costume payments. Our payment policy requires all accounts to provide a Credit Card or Debit Card to automatically withdraw tuition on the 5th of each month. There are no refunds for missed classes or dropouts.
Upon registration, the account holder will need to complete the Automatic Withdraw Form, which must be completed and returned to the studio.
You are responsible for updating your new account information with us at least 5 days prior to your payment being pulled. Any payments not taken care of by the 10th of the month will result in a $10 late fee. For all declined transactions (including insufficient funds, expired or new account information, etc.) a $10 reprocessing fee will be added to your payment. Email notification about your upcoming payment as well as a receipt for all accepted or declined payments will be sent out. Be sure you are receiving these emails to help track your payment records. In the case of a transaction being rejected, Mini Motions Dance Center may at its discretion attempt to process the charge again within 30 days. There is a 10% discount given for full year payments, and 5% discount for half year payments.
Your Costume/Recital Deposit of $60 per class will also be automatically withdrawn on the 23rd of November. Your final Costume/Recital Balance will be withdrawn on January 25th. We will inform you of your final balance at the beginning of January.
COSTUME / RECITAL FEE
On November 23rd, 2019, a costume/recital fee of $60 will be required by those students participating in our June recital. A $10.00 late fee will occur after the 23rd. This becomes a commitment and obligation from the student and parent. Students will perform in two dance routines with an estimated costume cost of $48.00-$52.00 PLUS shipping, handling, tights, shoes, entire recital DVD and student award as an additional cost. We strive to keep prices low and some costumes reusable. Fees are non-refundable once costumes have been ordered. Receiving your deposit means you take full responsibility for the balance due if the student drops out of class. Costume/recital fee final balance will be due January 25th. You do have the right to decline from the recital and may still continue to stay in the program, but it truly is a very good experience for them.
RECITAL / PERFORMANCES
Advance Tickets for the June 13 th , 2020 recital and social gathering immediately following will be available in May. Ticket
prices: Adult (13 and up) - $20.00 Child (3 – 12) - $10.00 (prices subject to change). The recital is a personal and rewarding
show as we see our students become the performers. Share in the excitement and accomplishment as the students receive their awards on stage followed by a party of refreshments and acknowledgements on a fine year of good hard work! Though there are two recital times, the student will perform in only one show along with a rehearsal. Additional shows may occur during the year which are helpful to ease away any shyness and fear encountered by performing in front of an audience. Rehearsal date is Wednesday, June 10, 2020 3:30-8:30 pm. Recital date is Saturday, June 13 th 2020 with a show at 11:00 am and a show at 3:30 p.m. Both the Rehearsal and Recital will take place at the Stranahan Theater. Dates and pricing are subject to change.
The Dance Center does not close along with any school closings. Many times the road conditions improve by lesson time. Teachers will instruct classes with those students who are willing and able to attend. If the center is closing, we will post it in
our BAND group and it will be posted on our Facebook page. There will be broadcasting on T.V. after 2:00 p.m.
ABSENCES AND MAKE-UPS
Two consecutive missed lessons require a phone call by the parent to inform us of the student’s status. Weekly attendance is a must for progression of the entire class. Missed classes will reflect on their knowledge and skills. Four make-up classes are allowed throughout the entire program, if applicable. See instructor for days and times. If your student is unable to participate in class due to an injury, the teacher will need to see a doctor’s note clearing them for full activity before they will be able to return. However, the students are encouraged to still attend classes when sick/injured to watch and keep up with routines.
NEWS AND INFORMATION
To keep you informed, all communication will be through our BAND group, Facebook and our website. Please check this routinely so you are up to date with information. Additional announcements are made at the end of classes, if necessary, so please be available to receive such information; otherwise, students will be responsible for informing you. When only three lessons occur in a month due to holiday closing, regular payment is made since some months carry five lessons, therefore, balancing out.
We ask the parents to show their interest and participate in the students progress by observing class at least once a month. Instructors like to see parents writing down dance steps or helping them practice at home. Show them your interest and they will go far. What is most important for our students is that they have fun in learning to dance and perform. By incorporating music and dance into their lives, they can learn rhythm, movement, coordination, flexibility and good self-esteem. All of these traits help to develop confidence – isn’t that what we all need to be successful in life?
On behalf of Mini Motions Dance Center, its faculty and staff, we want to take this opportunity to extend a warm and sincere welcome to each of you.
Review the policies listed below so every parent and student enrolled at the Dance Center are familiar with the conduct and discipline needed to insure proper teaching and a positive atmosphere for learning.
Our Fall program begins on September 3rd and continues through June 8th 2020. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to the first class.
Students will remain in the waiting area until they are called upon by the teacher to begin their lesson. No running in class. No chewing gum. Keep hands off the mirrors.
Baggy clothes and jeans, are NOT appropriate for class. Dance wear, leotards or spandex/stretch clothing is suggested. (May vary in some classes: consult your instructor.) To avoid wet and dirty floors, please bring clean tennis shoes/dance shoes to wear for lessons. No street shoes on the dance floor.
Parents and visitors who stay to observe classes must remain quiet so our students can concentrate and listen to the instructor without distractions. Siblings with you are to remain off the dance floor. At no time should children be left unsupervised.
Arriving late for class can be very distracting and unpleasant for your child and the teacher. Please be prompt for pick-up if you are not staying for their class. A 15-minute break occurs between each class. No children should leave the building without an adult by their side for safety reasons.
Classes having less than five registered students may be cancelled at the Dance Center’s discretion. Mini Motions and the faculty reserve the right to remove any student from class for failure to observe good conduct and policies.
Thank you for your understanding and following these rules needed for dance discipline.
