We ask all students and visitors to please observe these rules when attending classes or visiting our facility.
- ABSOLUTELY NO FOOD OR GUM IN THE STUDIOS. Please be respectful of the lobby, and clean up after yourselves when you eat snacks.
- WATER BOTTLES ONLY. No juice, soda, or other beverages are allowed in the studios.
- NO STREET SHOES IN THE STUDIOS. This applies to visitors, too.
- Students may bring only dance shoes, warm-up clothes, and water bottles into the studios. All other items will be stored in the lobby.
- Please be respectful of our lobby space by keeping the noise level and distractions to a minimum. For parents waiting with smaller children, there is a waiting room available with toys to play with.
Students can register for classes up until the end of the second week of the session. Once the third week of the session begins, students can still register for a pro-rated tuition, however a late registration fee of $25 will be applied.
Tuition MUST be PAID IN FULL at the time of registration, or a payment plan must be requested in writing at registration. This payment plan must be established and set in place by the end of the second week of the session, as which the first payment will be due.
To set up a payment plan please speak with or email our bookkeeper, Meredith Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to withdraw from a class and be eligible for a refund, you must inform the studio in writing (either email or letter) of your intention to withdraw from a class (or classes). The withdrawal will take effect from the date that your email or letter was sent, not the date that the student last attended class. Failure to notify the studio in writing of a withdrawal may make you ineligible for a refund.
Withdrawal before classes begin - Full refund.
Withdrawal during the first four weeks of a session - Half refund of tuition for that session.
There are no refunds for tuition after the first four weeks of the session.
Students who withdraw from classes after the first four weeks will be sent an invoice if there is a remaining balance on their account, which will be due 30 days after the invoice was sent.
Refunds will be given for the remainder of the term for any class cancelled due to low enrollment.
Refunds or credits will not be given for late arrivals, early departures, or classes missed due to illness, injury, or outside activities.
Creative Movement classes must be paid in full prior to the first class taken. No payment plans are available. No refunds are given for missed classes, however dancers withdrawing during the first two weeks of the session will receive a credit for half the tuition to be used for a future class or activity at MAX.
In the event of bad weather, an email will be sent by 8:00am for morning classes and by 12:00 noon for afternoon and evening classes. A message will also be posted to the home page of the website whenever possible. Make-up days will be offered upon the discretion of the instructor.
Students may make up any missed dance classes during first or second session. Classes can be made up in another section of equal or lower level. Feel free to email if you aren’t sure what classes qualify. Refunds or credits will not be given for classes missed due to illness, injury, or outside activities.
