Below is a list of policies and procedures for e-dance center. Please be sure to ready over carefully.
Enrolling in the Fall/Spring Dance Session is a 9 1/2-month long commitment (September 6, 2022 – June 11, 2023). Please know and understand this before enrolling. E-dance center teachers, and staff expect you to attend your classes each week and to participate in the end of the year show (June 9,10,11 2023). If you feel you are not interested in dancing the whole 9 1/2 months and/or participating in the end of the year show then this is not the program/dance school for you.
e-dance center expects students and parents/guardians to behave in an appropriate manner to other students, parents, instructors and administrative staff.
Inappropriate behavior or language (disrespectful, rude or inconsiderate etc.) may be cause for dismissal.
This includes all time inside the studio and communications (emails, phone calls, texts, social media).
Inappropriate behavior will be dealt with as follows:
1st offense – student will be talked to
2nd offense – parent/guardian will be contacted
3rd offense – dismissal from e-dance center
To be fair to the other students and the teachers, a student needs to be prepared for each class. Attendance will be taken. Class attendance is very important and crucial for improvement and progression.
After three classes have been missed the student’s participation in dance classes and in the end of the year show will be discussed with a parent/or guardian or adult student. If three classes are missed of the same genre during this crucial show preparation time dancers will be cut from that show number.
There will also be mandatory show practices scheduled. Dress rehearsal is TBD and show dates are TBD. Please check on these dates and if for any reason you can not be at these rehearsals you must communicate this personally with Danny Aldous, owner or Blake Banta, executive administrator in a timely manner, as missing these practices will effect participation in the show.
Registration Fees will be charged on card at time of enrollment. Fall Registration: one student fee is $40 and family fee is $55. Fall registration closes Oct. 1. Those students who register for classes in the month of September (from Sept. 1 – Sept. 30, will be charged the full month’s tuition. Summer dance does not have a registration fee.

We expect students who enroll to continue through the entire season and participate in the end of the year dance show. (Sept. 2022 – June 11, 2023)
e-dance center will have a dance show at the end of the dance year. When choosing classes for the fall/spring session (September 6 – June 11, 2023), there will be costumes to purchase (and possibly additional dance shoes and accessories). Costumes can be expensive. Some classes may be in more than one dance number. Each dance number a student is in there will be a non-refundable costume deposit of $65 charged.
Costumes may be more than $65 and balances will be charged in the Spring. If less than $65 credits will be entered in accounts.
IF YOU DROP A CLASS(ES) AFTER SHOW COSTUME DEPOSIT IS MADE THE DEPOSIT IS NOT REFUNDABLE AND THE COSTUME IS YOURS NO MATTER WHAT. E-DANCE CENTER WILL NOT RETURN THE COSTUME.
e-dance center requires payment of a show fee that ranges from $150 – $200 per student. This fee is used to pay for the cost of having a dance show in a theater. This fee will be determined each year on enrollment and show expenses.
Tickets to the annual dance show will be available to purchase at the end of the year. Ticket prices will be determined by enrollment, theater, and show expenses.
e-dance center dancers can participate in two fundraisers to help offset costume costs and show fee. Money earned from fundraiser goes into your e-dance center dance account.
