Levels

All level placements are solely at the discretion of the director and instructors.

  • All Level 2 or higher must be scheduled with a staff member. ​

  • All new students will default into age appropriate Tot, Pre or Level 1 classes unless otherwise determined by the director or instructors after trial class.​

  • Often it may be necessary for a student to remain in a level for longer than one season to fully master all the techniques and skills taught in that level. This is for the student’s safety and to ensure the student develops to their greatest potential.

  • Levels are based on a dancer’s ability, work ethic and other predetermined dance criteria.  Dancers meeting the requirements to level up in a particular style may be promoted mid-season.

  • Students may be placed in different levels across their different styles of dance depending on their strengths and weaknesses.

Payments

  • Class tuition is due on the 1st of every month.

  • There will be a $30.00 charge for returned checks.

  • A late fee of $10.00 will be added after the 10th of the month, and $15.00 will be added after the 15th of the month. All accounts must be current for students to take classes. If your tuition has fallen a month behind your student may not be allowed to participate.

Our intention for late fees is to simply ensure that we receive payments in a timely enough manner to keep the lights on so your dancer can keep dancing. Therefor we will offer a one-time convenience, that if you enroll in our auto-pay we will waive any late fees that have been accumulated.

  • No refunds for dropped or missed classes, although we do offer make up classes for specific situations (see Makeup Lessons).

  • Tuition is based on a full season which is broken down into monthly payments [with the exception of our Discover with Me Program]. For this reason, tuition is the same for all months regardless of breaks or holidays. We do, however, offer makeups for classes missed during studio holidays or breaks.

Referral Program

  • When a new student registers for classes and lists you in the "Referred By" section of their application you will receive 20% off you next months class tuition. ​

Make-up Lessons

  • Please inform the office if you will be missing class for any reason so our teachers can best plan their lessons. 

  • If you have missed a class due to personal reasons (sickness, family event, vacation, etc.) you may schedule a makeup class with the office within 30 days of the missed class. This class must be of a similar style, age, and level of the class missed; however students may always makeup in lower level classes. The office will help you find a suitable makeup class for your dancer. If a makeup has not been scheduled in the allotted time, the makeup is forfeited.

  • No refund will be given for dropped or missed classes.

Dropping Classes

  • If you would like to drop your account with us we require 2 weeks written notice. Tuition will always continue through the end of the month until we receive this written notice and reason for dropping.

  • Students will be automatically dropped after 4 weeks of non-attendance without communication.

  • If you choose to drop and then re-register there will be a $20.00 account reactivation fee.

Low Attendance/ Instructors

  • Classes are opened with a minimum of four registered students. If there is low attendance (under 4 students) on any given week, the instructor may choose that week to shorten the class to 45 minutes, as classes with 1-3 students are considered private lessons which are normally cost a higher rate than weekly classes. Parents will be called or messaged if this adjustment is made. The following week, class will resume its normal length.

  • Rohr Studios reserves the right to substitute or change class instructors as it suits the needs of the studio.

Observation / Student Drop-off /Babysitting Fee

  • For your convenience each studio has viewing windows so you can see the progress of your dancer.

  • Students may be dropped off at the studio as long as they no longer need assistance in the restroom.

  • Students should be picked up by a parent or guardian. No student will be allowed to walk home unless prior permission is given by the parent. Rohr Studios is not responsible for things that take place outside of our building, but we do take an interest in the general safety and well-being of our students. 

  • Students must be picked up within 10 minutes after the end of their last class. If parents fail to pick up their student a "Babysitting Fee" will be automatically added to your account of $2.00 per 5 minutes that a staff member has to oversee a student after their last class.

  • Please be sure to collect all your items and clothing after every day. Any items left out in the studio or common areas at the end of the day will be placed in the lost and found.

  • Our lost and found will be donated after approximately every 90 days to the Salvation Army.
