Attendance in class is crucial for a dancer’s development. When emergencies do arise, dancers are encouraged to notify the studio prior to class. No refunds or credits will be given for classes missed. See the office for a list of appropriate make-up classes.


You must notify Spotlight Dance Conservatory, Inc. in writing if you are dropping a class, otherwise you will be charged until you do so.  Please remember there are no refunds, so you will be enrolled until the period for which you have registered has expired.


If you drop a class, but then decide to rejoin you must re-register for the class and pay the applicable registration fee again.


  • When entering a class tardy, the student should ask permission to participate.

  • Due to the importance of a complete warm-up, it is up to the teacher’s discretion to decide if there is an adequate amount of warm-up left for the student to participate in class.

  • If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for class, you may not be able to participate, but can watch.
