One Spirit Dance Academy
The studio will be closed March 16-20 in observance of Chatham County public school’s Spring Break. Those dance days will be made up at the end of the semester.
Tuition as you know is $45.00 monthly per class. Adult tuition is $50.00 monthly. Each month we will continue to post our payment procedures and policies. It is our sincere hope that this will answer all your questions and concerns. Your punctual payment will not only help us with our financial obligations, punctually, but will also help you by keeping our costs at a minimum. Please send your payments by anyone who is bringing your dancer to class.
Remember tuition is due on your dancer’s first dance day of the month. Each week late there will be a $10.00 late fee. That is $10.00 for every week you are late with your payment. We will not let any dancer dance that has a late fee until all payments, including late fees are paid. If your child is dropped off without payment, we will have to sit them up front. We really don’t want to do that so please work with us. Also, tuition is still due even if your dancer is absent on that day.
Our doors open at 5:45pm Mon-Thurs. Ms. Kelly’s 5:00pm classes may arrive at 4:45pm. Please do not bring dancers earlier than stated. Members of the dance company are the only dancers allowed to arrive earlier than listed. PLEASE pick your dancer up on time at the end of class. There is a $1.00 per minute fee for late pick-ups. We will allow a five- minute grace period, but we do not have the personnel to supervise non-dancing students.
NO parent, relative or friend is allowed in the dance rooms during classes. We allow new parents to attend their dancers first dance class but only the first dance class. If there is a problem in class, we will let you know and if you have any questions or concerns please consult your child’s dance teacher. We don’t know of any dance school that has an open-door policy and neither do we.
All dancers with exception of Hip Hop are required to wear black leotards, pink tights, a black dance skirt and pink ballet shoes. NO SHORTS. Dance skirts can be purchased from us or your store of choice. Hip Hop attire includes white t-shirts, tennis shoes and black shorts or sweatpants. NO denim will be allowed.
Tap Classes for non-company members
Tap classes, for non-company will not be offered until August. If you signed up for that class at the front desk, you will be notified before the Fall Semester.
Dance Company Requirements and Advanced Hip Hop Requirements
If you have any questions concerning auditions for the dance company or the advanced hip hop class, you can get a copy of those requirements from the front desk. Please DO NOT sign up for advance classes if your child’s schedule will not permit dedication.
1. One Spirit Dance Academy will be participating in the Love & Soul Festival on Saturday, March 7th at Forsyth Park. We will perform12:15pm – 12:30pm. You will be notified if your child is participating. Dancers are chosen according to ability, dependability, seniority and behavior. If we are given short notice of a performance, we must go with the dancers who already know the dance piece because there is normally not enough time to teach that routine to other dancers.
2. One Spirit hosts an intensive dance camp each year (June 1-26), with a summer camp performance on June 27th. Dance Camp is held 7:30am to 5:30pm. It is $100.00 weekly with a registration fee of $25.00. We only take 30 campers. It is on a first come; first serve basis and we fill up fast. Pay your registration fee now to hold your spot. All dancers must have dance school experience and be 5 years old by June 1st.
