The School reserves the right to withdraw the installment plan at its sole discretion. Circumstances that could result in this action include, but are not limited to, cheques being returned NSF, per-authorized credit card payments being declined, and late payments. If so notified by the School, the entire balance owing becomes immediately payable and must be paid before the student can return to class

Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority going to returning students. We must have a completed and signed registration form before a student may take classes. Late payments and returned checks are subject to a $25.00 fee. A student can take a trial or placement class for a $25 fee per one class.

Coming to a class on time is very important for all ages. Walking into a class 5 or 10 minutes late is disruptive and unfair to the class and your child learning process. We would like all students to come 10 minutes before the class so the students are prepared for class and they learn from you the most important lesson “to be on time”. Absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class, If you are unable come to the class because your daughter or son is sick or unwell please email school@ssballet.ca or call us at 403 226-8874. If you fail to inform the school we will note this as an unexcused absence. After more than 3 unexcused absences the instructor reserves the right to rearrange the routine, shifting dancers out of a specific dance positions if necessary. The School reserves the rights to suspend any student with more than six unexcused absences within four month. If a student is suspended there will be no refund for the tuition and any other payments or missed classes. Due to the high standards of the ballet classes, regular attendance is mandatory.
We at the Starchevski School of Ballet thank you to all parents and guardians for understanding and support in this matter.
If a dancer‘s absences occur at pivotal times, such as close to performance time, the instructor reserve the right to remove the dancer from a particular performance.
