April Newsletter

April Dance Dates:
4th, 11th, 18th and 25th
**There will be extra practices on weeknights and Sundays starting after Easter. A schedule will be sent home.**

It is very important that all dancers are at every practice now. We are getting close to the show and the children need to be a class to be sure they know the dances. If a dancer misses or has missed several classes he/she will be removed from the dance. I will not allow a child to perform a dance he/she is not competent in. Please do not expect to see your child in every dance if he/she has missed several classes.

It has come ti my attention that there is some confusion over tuition payments. Here is the policy:
  • All payments are due the first class of the month.
  • If your payment is not received on the first class, you will incur a weekly $5 late fee.
  • If your child is not at dance on the first class due to illness, etc., you may make your payment at the second class without penalty.
  • No matter how many classes your child attends during the month, the payment is still $35. There is no per-class payment. Please do not ask to do pay-as-you go as it is a bookkeeping nightmare. All checks must be made to Maureen King.

My "bookkeeper" has been very lenient in accepting late payments without charging late fees. That is going to stop. Due to my Mother's health problems lately, she will not be at every class - only the first of the month. Therefore, any payments made after that class will be made to me and charged the additional late fee. All accounts must be up to date for participation in the recital.

Finally, if anyone has financial difficulty and needs to discuss a different payment plan, please see me. We can always work something out. This information is kept confidential and may be adjusted as needed.
