Policies

Attendance

In order to take full advantage of the instruction offered, regular attendance is essential. If you call in advance to report an absence, a make-up lesson may be arranged. There are no refunds for missed lessons. Make-up lessons are subject to class availability and are limited to one per month. Excused classes must be made up before the end of each semester; missed make-up lessons are forfeited.  Please note that the studio opens 15 minutes before the start of the first class of the day.  You are encouraged to arrive early to prepare for class.  The studio closes promptly at the end of the last class of the evening.  If you are picking your child up, please arrive before the end time of the class and be waiting for your  child.

Weather Cancellations

In the event of severe weather, please check the website, the studio Facebook page at www.facebook.com/hudsonriverperformingarts/ or call the office 845-896-1888 to determine if classes have been cancelled. Classes cancelled due to weather will be subject to available make-up classes; they will not be refunded.

 Other Notes

Please do not drop young children off at the door to come upstairs or walk through the parking lot alone.  Escort your child into the studio if you are not staying for the duration of class.  Your child’s safety is our first concern.

If your child needs assistance in the bathroom, or you do not feel comfortable with your child going to the bathroom down the hallway alone, please stay for class in case your child should need assistance, as our staff is not able to provide it.

Shoes worn outside are not permitted on our dance floors.  It damages the floors.  Additionally, dance shoes are not to be worn outside, as it damages the shoes, and our floor, the next time they are worn in class.

Water bottles are encouraged, but no other liquids are allowed in class unless health reasons exist.  Food is not to be brought into the dance space.  Please clean up your own garbage and help us keep the studio and bathroom areas clean.
