Studio Policy

2024 - 2025 Studio Policy

  • No Food allowed in studios and wait areas. Water will be allowed labeled with student's name. All water cooler have been removed from the studios.
  • Drop Off & Pick-up: Miss Tanya's School of Dance cannot be responsible for the care of students before and after class. We do not allow younger students to go into the parking lot unaccompanied by an adult. Please arrive promptly at the end of your child’s class. After a 10-minute grace period, a $15 late pickup fee is charged to your account. An additional $15.00 will be charged for every 5 minutes after the first 10 minutes. If you are running late, please call the studio (978-343-7700).
  • The wait areas will continued to remain closed for the 2024 - 2025 season. We have determined through the years of the wait areas being closed due to Covid that there is less distraction for our students, less bathroom breaks and instructors are able to get more done in the classrooms. There will be no water coolers in the studios. Students may bring in their own water (ONLY) labeled clearly with their name.
  • There will be a scheduled observation week in December 2024. More information will be given out at a later date. 
  • No Smoking in or around the building.
  • Please use designated parking spaces in Miss Tanya’s School of Dance parking lot (parking spaces with yellow lines). Parking in the Plaza spots may result in your vehicle being towed. 
  • Good Attendance is VERY important to ensure progress in class. If a student misses 4 or more classes within a two month period or 6 or more classes in a dance season (Sept - June) a student may be asked to drop to a lower level class. If a student is injured, please still come and watch class.
  • Beginning in the month of February until the month of June, students may not miss more than Four classes in order to participate in the recital.
  • The studio reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if a teacher is absent for any reason.  In the event that a substitution cannot be arranged, class may be canceled and rescheduled.
  • If at any point either mandated or for other reason classes have to move from in-studio to Zoom, tuition will NOT be adjusted. Tuition is the same amount monthly, even if classes are held on Zoom.
  • Cell phones are allowed into the dance rooms, but must be turned off.  Miss Tanya's School of Dance is not responsible for lost or stolen cell phones.

  • Tuition for the school year is based on an ANNUAL FEE divided into 10 monthly payments for the months of September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May and June for the convivence of our clients. Tuition will be half price for the month of June.  Some months will have (1 or 2) weeks and other months may have as many as (5 weeks).  Annual tuition is based on an average of 32.5 weekly classes per season (Sept - June). If you take advantage of the Seven Free Make-up class policy for your first class, your average weekly classes for the annual season will be increased to 39.5 weekly classes. All Friday classes will receive an extra make-up class to balance out the season. Scheduling make-up classes are the responsibility of the students, parents or legal guardians. Please email, call or come to the front counter to schedule make-up classes. We do not close for many Holidays (Please visit our studio calendar), which allows us to have more classes during the season. The month of June may only have one class and Dress Rehearsal, which will count as a class.

If you would like to schedule make-ups in the same class, they can only be scheduled once a month. It is your responsibility  to schedule make-up classes.
