Watch-Weeks & Bring-A-Friend Weeks

Junior & Teen Program:  Parents and guests are invited to observe classes at the studio during Watch Week.  This is a great opportunity to see what goes on in class and see how students are progressing.  We have one Watch Week at the end of each semester—Fall, Spring, and Summer.  Bring-A-Friend weeks are an opportunity to introduce a friend or family member to Studio 505's classes.  During Bring-A-Friend week first time guests participate for free.  We ask that all guests wear proper attire for dance class.  We have one Bring-A-Friend week during each semester. 

Attendance

Students are expected to attend and be on time for all registered classes.  If a class is missed, a student can make up the class by attending a different class for free during the month.  The make-up class must happen within 1 month of the class missed.  Students should ask their instructors for the appropriate make-up class.  There are no refunds or pro-rating of tuition for missed classes.  Attendance is required the week before any performance in order to participate in the performance.  In cases of ongoing attendance issues, conflicts, behavior problems, etc., Studio 505 reserves the right to dismiss any student and/or parent from the studio whose attitude, attendance, or conduct is found disruptive or unacceptable—any fees paid up to this point remain non-refundable.

Class Placement and Size

Students are placed in classes based on ability, and not necessarily by age.  A student may be asked to move to a class better suited for their level and ability.  A reasonable class size will always be maintained.  Classes require a minimum enrollment of 5 students.  If a class does not meet the minimum enrollment it will be placed on hold until the next session.

Classes may include video analysis/observation, discussion groups, and other learning activities related to dance and movement arts.  All class activities assist in the educational and artistic process.  Some classes may also include lessons in improvisation, dance notation, and choreography workshops.
