Dance To EvOLvE

Q & A

DRESS CODE FOR CLASSES

Please see our blog on the importance of a dress code.   We offer a flexible dress code with no specific required colors or styles.

YOU&me Movement and Music Class

We have no dress code and require no specific dance shoes.  Leotards, tights, tutus, and ballet shoes are always welcome as they only add to the fun in YOU&me.  Sweatpants, t-shirts and tennis shoes are great. No sandals, flip flops, boots or crocs for safety.

All Tap & Ballet Classes (Magical Munchkins, Tiny Movers, Star Shiners)

We want our dancers to have fun while being safe and appropriate. Our dress code is dance attire. Leggings, tights and tutus all add to the fun, but we do not require a specific style or color.  Hair needs to be pulled back.
* We ask that tiny tots’ dance clothes are only worn for dance class so that the young dancer understands that they are coming to dance class and not an unstructured play time.

Shoes For Ballet/Tap Classes

All Hip Hop Classes

Sweats, leggings, and t-shirts are great…wear clothes that you can easily move in and are appropriate when dancing and doing floor work. (Shorts and skirts can be a challenge.)  Girls should wear their hair pulled back in a ponytail. Sneakers with laces are required (safety first). Barefoot, clogs, crocs, sandals, flip flops or socks just won’t work.

WHERE TO BUY?

Receive 8% off your first order with Discount Dance by using Dance To EvOLvE’s code TP35961. You will also find affordable dance attire and shoes at stores such as Target, Payless, and sometimes Walmart, but they tend to be hit or miss. Local dance stores are also an option but the prices will be more expensive. For safety reasons, dancers are not permitted to wear jewelry in any class.

CLASS MAKE-UP POLICY

Class make-ups are allowed for sickness, family emergency or being out of town. A Dancers have one month to make-up any missed class from the day he/she missed class.  It can be made-up in any age appropriate class at any location that has availability.  Classes must be made up while you are registered in class.  We appreciate an email prior to your make-up class so we can confirm the class has availability for an extra student.  (We always want to maintain quality!)  Make-up classes cannot be done in a dancer’s regular class.  See schedule for make-up options.

CANCELLED CLASSES

All canceled classes will be posted on the announcement box and our Facebook page. If school is canceled within the district of your dance class location, dance class will also be canceled. No refunds will be issued for any canceled classes, but make-up classes will be offered.

DANCER DROP-OFF

SAFETY FIRST…To ensure all our dancer’s safety, Dance To EvOLvE has a sign-in drop off system.  If you are planning on leaving (dropping off) your dancer during class, sign the completed clipboard with the phone number where you can be reached during the next hour in case of an emergency. This needs to be done every week for any dancer who does not have an adult within viewing distance.  This will give our teachers quick access to an accurate telephone number to contact you if needed.

REFUND POLICY

We are confident that your dancer will love our classes but if a refund is necessary:
There are no refunds for monthly enrollment.  Please cancel prior to the 25th of the month to discontinue your enrollment and to not be charged for the next month. There are no refunds for those enrolled in the discounted semester pricing option. (Cancellation requests must go through the office, not the teacher.)

CLASS RATIOS

To ensure high quality classes and a good dancer ratio, an Assistant Teacher will help with our larger tiny tot ballet combo classes. The ratio and class size may vary time to time to accommodate class needs and class make-up policies.
