Dimensions' classes may not be video-taped without instructor's and Director's approval. All dances, routines, class material, etc is the property of the instructors/owner at Dimensions. Information pertaining to taping of the End of the Year Production will be given out during April/May of that Production Season. **No footage video-taped from any class at Dimensions Studio shall be posted on internet, Faceook, Twitter, or any other association with the World Wide Web without permission from Director/Owner at Dimensions Studio. Any student or student family member not honoring this policy will autiomatically be un-enrolled in classes at Dimensions Studio.
We do not pro-rate classes according to a child’s sickness, family vacations, or ballgames. If you skip a month, that month’s bill must be paid to rejoin classes. This ensures we do not have to enforce yearly contracts with our students. Please feel free to come talk to us concerning long-term illnesses or relocations, etc. Much can be learned from watching a class, and a watched class does not have to be made up. Classes missed due to student absence and not studio cancellation must be made up within the month following the absence and during another appropriately scheduled class. Please check with instructor to schedule a make up class time. Please do not wait till end of year to make up missed classes due to your schedule or child's sickness.
Attendance is taken at each class. Dance/Acro students will be rewarded during the last class of the season with any attendance awards or special awards from their instructor. Attendance awards are based on the following manner:
*One or less classes missed will earn a Supreme Attendance Award.
*Two or three classes missed will receive a Perfect Attendance Award. More than three classes missed will not receive an award.
Taekwondo & Fitness classes are on a year round basis and are not seasonal and do not receive attendance awards.
All student accounts must be at a zero balance in order to receive costume(s), participate in the production or register for upcomig classes. Dimensions reserves the right to not allow a student to participate in the production.

Dimensions allows two(2) days to be missed or cancelled per year for monthly paying classes for any reason without making up.Classes that participate in the end of year production also have two (2) makeup days (the studio rehearsal and the dress rehearsal) due to snow, etc. (this is not for individuals who have missed due to illness, etc.). This is four(4) days per production class per year that we can cancel classes before scheduling makeups/pro-rating tuition.
Session Classes: Classes that run in sessions, such as the Tots class, will be extended until all classes which were paid for in the session have been held.
Non-production Classes(such as Taekwondo): Classes not participating in the production that must miss more than the given two days will be compensated with make-ups, credit, or pro-rated tuition. Often times another class will be offered as a make up in order not to use the allowed 2 days.
Fitness classes do not offer make-ups due to the way classes are paid.

of Arts & Athletics
*Leotard and tights are a must for dance class. Modern dancers need footless/convertible tights. Dance pants and dance shorts over tights may also be worn. Tights are REQUIRED for all Ballet classes!!!!
Cloggers may wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows movement.
Hip Hop classes need to wear loose, comfortable clothing, NO JEANS!!!!!!
Acrobatic students need to wear leotard and/or footless/convertible tights or shorts.
Student may not be admitted to class if proper attire is not worn. Proper attire is needed for safe & correct teaching practices. Please do not waver on this rule!
*Pink Ballet shoes only for Ballet.
*Black Tap shoes-Ribbons should be replaced with black elastic for younger students.
(some Tap dancer’s shoes may be decided upon on individual basis)
*Black Jazz shoes (some Jazz dancer’s shoes may be decided upon on individual basis)
*No acrobatic shoes are needed.
*Cloggers need white, lace-up clogging shoes. Beginners may wear black patton leather tap shoes.
* Jazz sneakers or clean tennis shoes for hip hop. No street-shoes please!
*Hair must be pulled back and secured for class. Any student or parent having difficulty in achieving a style should consult the teacher for help. Abusing this guideline may result in student being asked to sit out and observe class. It is very distracting to the student and teacher to have hair in one’s face during class.
NO long t-shirts are allowed to be worn after class warm up. Reason for this rule: All aspects of dance require proper placement of the body, instructors cannot correct placement if the body is covered.
Shoes bought at Wal-mart or discount shoe stores do not last and
do not fit properly!
Dance supplies & attire may be purchased at Dimensions Studio Boutique.
Upon registering for classes, we urge parents and children to discuss their commitment to classes. Consistent and punctual attendance is essential for progress to occur. If for some reason a student must withdraw from classes, please let the office know so that their space may be made available to another student.
The Dimensions Studio Handbook with a full listing of all our polices/guidelines is available in our studio lobby.
