Do I have to participate in the end of the year recital?
The end of the year recital is a wonderful ending to the dance year where the dancers are able to show all that they of learned in the classroom at RDA all year. We do suggest that they perform in the recital at the end of the year but it is not required. If you are not going to perform in the recital we simply ask that you notify us before December so that we do not order a costume for the dancer(s).
Are class sizes limited?
Yes, we do limit class sizes depending which class it is. Tiny Tots classes are limited to only 10 students while all other classes are limited to 15 students. Hip Hop is limited to only 20 students. Openings fill up fast so make sure to reserve your spot soon!
What happens if I am absent from my dance class?
All dance classes will have a list of classes that can be utilized as make-up classes in the event that you are absent from one or more of your dance classes. No refunds or discounted tuitions will be given for unattended or missed dance classes.
What happens if my dance class is canceled?
RDA will set up a make-up class for any classes that have been canceled by RDA, unless the cancellation(s) were due to inclements weather conditions that are out of RDA’s control. Once again, refunds will not be issued for cancellations. We will simply set-up make-up classes for those particular dance classes.
