December & January Newsletter

It’s hard to believe that the Holiday season is upon us and all the hustle and bustle that goes with it.  The studio will be CLOSED for the Holiday vacation beginning on Sunday, December 24th through Monday, January 1st 2018, re-opening on Tuesday, January 2nd 2018.   Just a reminder that tuition is based on an annual fee, divided into ten equal monthly payments and are the same each month regardless if it is a short or long month.  Students may schedule up to Seven Free Make-up Classes for their first class and one extra make-up class for each additional class taken from September to February 3rd 2018 to offset any missed classes due to illness, snow days, Holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Holiday Break & Memorial Day) and Recital dates.  Please note that February and April school vacation weeks are not included in the make-up classes, as they are not part of your yearly tuition charges.  Students may only schedule three make-up classes per month and cannot be scheduled in the same class for two consecutive weeks.  The month of June is a SHORT month, due to Dress Rehearsal and Recital.  Dress Rehearsal does count as a class in the month of June.  If you take advantage of the Make-up policy, you will gain more classes during the annual season.  Please come to the front counter and the staff can help you find an appropriate make-up class for your child/children.

Monthly tuition is due on the first of each month, with a grace period until the 15th of the month.  If paid after the 15th an additional $15.00 fee will be added.  The Observation Window will be OPEN in the Month of January 2017.  An observation schedule for each class will be given out to students via the classroom and is also posted on our website.   The window will NOT be open for the rest of the season.  Instructors will begin videotaping the entire class for educational purpose ONLY when instructors begin teaching recital routines. Recital videos will never be posted on social media.  Videos are used as a teaching tool for students to see correct formations, choreography and musicality.  We ask that students and parents do not post any videos on social media.  We are OPEN for ALL classes on Monday, January 15th 2018 “Martin Luther King Day”

Just a reminder; that all costume deposits were  due by November 30th 2017.  This payment is cash or check only.  A $10.00 late fee per costume will be added if paid after the extended date of Saturday, December 9th 2017.   Please do not combine costume deposit with your monthly tuition.  If you have not paid your costume deposit, please do so as soon as possible, as costumes will not be ordered until deposit has been paid.  During the first week in December instructors will be measuring and sizing students for recital costumes.  The cost for costumes will range from $60.00 - $85.00, depending on the type of costume ordered and age group of the class. An invoice for the balance of costumes will go out in the month of February.  Instructors will begin to teach recital routines in the month of February and at this time make-up classes will not be allowed for any missed classes and the observation window will not be open. Beginning in the month of February until the month of June students may not miss more than three classes to participate in the recital. 

Students should have all the proper dance attire and required shoes for class.  Instructors will notify parents if students do not meet the requirements.  For all the Dress Code requirements please visit www.Misstanyasdance.com.  Shoes can be purchased at Dancers Boutique in Fitchburg Mass.

Winter is here, which means snow storms and cancellations.  To check if the studio is closed, please call the studio ONE hour prior to the start of your scheduled class or check our web-site www.Misstanyasdance.com. or the studio Facebook. If the schools are closed, the studio may still be OPEN (we do not always follow the school schedule), so please check the web-site, Facebook, or call the studio for more information.  A recording will be on the answering machine regarding cancellations.

At this time Miss Tanya, Miss Tammy, Miss Kiera, Miss Kayla, Miss Brittany , Miss Julia, Miss Jessica, Miss Brianna and the front desk staff, Taylor, Rebekah, Trudy & Tara would like to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday and a very safe New Year!!!!!
