Our Policies

General Policies:

Student Records:
Every student must have a completed registration form on file and the $10 registration fee must be paid in advance in order to participate in classes. Please update your physical address, phone number, and email address if they change during the semester. Our communication with you is dependent on this information.

Class Cancellations:
If the local school district is closed due to weather, classes will also be canceled. An email notification or phone call will be sent out if any classes are canceled. There are no refunds if a class is canceled due to weather.

Please update your email when it changes so that we can contact you for class reminders, newsletters, and general information.

All tuition, show, and ticket fees are non-refundable. There will be a $15 fee for returned checks. We will not hold checks or accept post-dated checks.

Parents/Caregivers are responsible for supervising students until their dance class begins and after their dance class ends. After finishing class, students must wait in the waiting area or in the classroom with the teacher. They are not permitted to wait outside. Please let the teacher know if someone other than you will be picking up your child. All family members and/or guests are required to remain outside the dance area while classes are in session. This is for the safety of all.

Viewing the Class:
Peek Weeks and Assessment Weeks will be scheduled for the year, otherwise, the parents are not allowed in the classroom. Any child not participating in the class should not enter the room at any time. La Belle Vie is not responsible for supervising siblings and/or friends of students.

Video Taping and Pictures:
Videotaping and pictures are not allowed during class time. A videographer will be coming in toward the end of the year to tape the class, but parents are not allowed to videotape due to distraction.

Canceling Classes:
La Belle Vie reserves the right to cancel classes with less than 3 students registered in them.

Dance Policies:

Students should be dressed in the appropriate dancewear, have hair up, and dance shoes on when the door opens for their class. Dance bags and street clothes/shoes must be stored in their individual lockers/cubbies. Classes will begin on time.

Students will be expected to come for regular class attendance (with the exception of illness). Repeated absence will lessen the student's ability to progress in class and learn choreography. There is no refund for missed classes. If a student misses more than 6 classes during the year, he or she will be excused from class for the rest of the year. Tardiness will not be tolerated.

Class Sizes:
6-15 students, depending on the class.

Tuition Payment:
Monthly tuition payments are due on a student's first class day of each month October through May. If your tuition is paid after the 10th of the month, a $15 late fee is expected in order to make your account current. If you choose to opt in for automatic, monthly withdrawals, this will be done on the first Monday of each month.

Tuition does not represent a per class payment. Tuition remains the same regardless of the number of classes per month. The number of classes may vary per month, but payment is divided equally for your convenience. There are 9 equal payments. If payment is not made, you may be notified by a phone call or email.

Dropping Out:
If a student drops out of a class or classes, payment is to be made for the month in which the student drops out. Please notify the teacher of the drop out by a phone call or email. There are no refunds of tuition if classes are discontinued during a year. Classes missed are not prorated or refunded.
