One Spirit Dance Academy
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! We hope your holidays were merry and bright, as we look forward to the second semester of our dance school year. Our December presentation of “Toyland” was a great success and we’d like to thank you for your phenomenal support as well as your trusting us with your precious dancers. We are missing a pair of child’s One Spirit sweat pants so if your dancer came home with a pair that you did not purchase, please return it to the studio. It was misplaced the night of the show. We do pray that in the future all of you read and comply with the “Lucas Theatre Etiquette” memo that is issued before each show. We do not want to close out business with the Lucas having a negative impression of One Spirit.
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 class 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
In order to open another tap class, there must be a minimum class number of eight students. You can sign up for that class at the front desk.
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 refrain from signing up for advance classes if your child’s schedule will not permit dedication.
One Spirit Dance Academy’s dance company will be participating in the MLK Parade on Monday, January 20th. The dance company is not the dance school. If you are interested in decorating the float or passing out One Spirit cards during the parade, please sign up at the front desk.
Our Spring Show
Our spring show will be held in May. The date and time will be announced later. It would be wise to start paying on costumes now to avoid the financial stress right before the show. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit for your costumes. Deposits for costumes are due February 10-13, 2020. The balance will be due March 9-12, 2020.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
