October & November 2018 Newsletter

The fall season is upon us and the first month of dance has gone very well! Students are settling into their class schedules and instructors are observing amazing new talent every day!

We want to remind you that tuition is due on the 1st of each month. If tuition is paid after the 15th of the month an additional $15.00 late fee will be added. This policy will be strictly enforced.

All students should have the proper dance attire and shoes by October 1st 2018. NO STREET SHOES ARE ALLOWED in the studios. Required shoes can be purchased at Dancers Boutique located on John Fitch Highway in Fitchburg, MA.

The observation window will be open in November & January. A schedule will be given out to students for each observation month with the designated dates and times for each class.

The studio will be closed on Wednesday, October 31st 2018 (Halloween), as many towns have “Trick or Treat” that day. An extra make-up class will be given to students that have class on that day. Please come to the counter to schedule a make-up class.

 The studio will also be closed for the Thanksgiving break (Wednesday, November 21st 2018 through Saturday, November 24th 2018, reopening on Monday, November, 26th 2018.)  

 We will be OPEN on Monday, November 12th 2018 (Veterans Day).

  Just a reminder that students may schedule up to Seven Free Make-up Classes for their first class and One make-up for each additional class taken from the months of October 2018 to February 2019 to offset any missed classes due to illness, snow days, Holidays (that we are closed), Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, Dress Rehearsal and Recital dates. Students may only schedule three make-up classes per month and cannot be scheduled in the same class for two consecutive weeks. Please take advantage of this benefit, as you will gain more classes in the annual season. It is your responsibility to come to the counter and schedule individual make-up classes.

 It has been brought to our attention by the instructors and office staff that the noise level in the wait areas is VERY loud. The studios are sound proof, but the instructors can still hear the noise and it is a distraction in the classroom. The wait areas are QUIET ZONES and we appreciate your cooperation. Also, no FOOD or DRINKS are allowed in the studio due to current students with allergies.

 Please use the designated parking spaces (spaces with the white lines) that are close to the studio, as we do not own the parking spaces in the plaza. Do not park in the middle of the parking lot or near any of the businesses in the plaza.

 Winter is right around the corner, which means snowstorms 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 website & our Facebook page. It is your responsibility to check if the studio is open. Unfortunately, we cannot call all students to notify them of cancellations. If schools are closed, the studio may still be OPEN, so please call the studio for more information. Let’s all work together to try and stay healthy this flu season. We have many bottles of hand sanitizers located throughout the studio. If your child has a fever or any flu symptoms, please do not send them to class. Call and schedule a make-up class.

 Recital Costume deposits in the amount of $40.00 per costume are due by December 1st 2018.   If paid after the due date, a $10.00 late fee per costume will be added weekly thereafter. An invoice is attached at the bottom of the notice. Cash or checks ONLY made payable to Miss Tanya’s School of Dance are accepted. No credit cards please!!! Also, please do not include monthly tuition with costume deposits. Recital Costume deposits are Non-Refundable and Non-Transferable.   An invoice for the costume balance will be given in the month of February. Costumes are ordered in January and cannot be cancelled once they are ordered. Parents are responsible for all costume balances, even if the student decides to drop out of a class. Costumes will range in price, varying from $63.00 - $87.00, depending on the costume chosen. We will be measuring students in the month of December. We do try to allow for growth. Please return invoice with costume deposit. Thank you.
