Policies & FAQ

Studio Policies

Every student should have the opportunity to receive the best dance experience. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior from students and parents is unacceptable. If a student's conduct becomes a recurring issue, a member of our staff may contact that parent to discuss solutions. 

Important news will be distributed via email as well as our blog and social media outlets. As part of our efforts to go green, we prefer not to distribute hard copies. However, if you do not wish to receive emails or shy away from social media, we will be happy to provide you a hard copy upon request. 

Missed Classes
No credit or refund will be given for missed classes. Classes must be made up within session that they are missed.

Make Up Classes
In order to make up a missed class, the student may attend another class on our schedule, as long as the class is at the same age level. The make up class does not have to be in the same style of dance in which they are enrolled. 

Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather, notification will be sent out to parent/guardians by email and via our social media links. If class is not cancelled though you feel driving conditions may not be safe, we ask that you contact the studio to notify us of you or your dancer's absence.

Please see our calendar for studio closures.

Lively Arts Dance Academy holds our annual dance recital in May. This is an opportunity for the students to gain stage experience and build confidence while showing friends and family what they have learned over the past year. The recital will be split into two shows. Students are required to attend a mandatory dress rehearsal prior to recital. Dates and location of rehearsal and recitals will be announced and posted to our calendar and social media outlets.

You are allowed to make up any classes that were missed due to personal reasons. You will be able to take another class on our schedule that is for the same age as the class you or child is enrolled in. Please ask Miss Shannon or Miss Bridget for assistance in finding a make up class that works for you.

Do you sell dance shoes?
YES! We stock ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and lyrical shoes. Please visit our front desk for inquiries, sizing, and pricing! 

Do you require any particular color leotard in your ballet classes?
We are firm believers in freedom of expression and creativity. If you or your child is more comfortable in a colorful dance outfit, we would love to see them express their creativity!  We DO require that students enrolled in a ballet class wear a leotard and tights so that the instructor can properly see body lines in order to help correct students technique.
