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 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 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).
Other examples of inappropriate behavior at e-dance center are:
– NO running, playing, yelling in the waiting areas, outside the building or in the studios before or after class.
– NO bullying, teasing or bothering other people any time.
– Those in the building are not allowed to hangout in offices, empty studios, empty dressing rooms or bathrooms. Waiting areas are in the hallway or lobby upstairs only. If you are outside the building on e-dance center property, there is absolutely no vaping of smoking allowed.
– Please pick up your trash, food crumbs, and do not leave things in the waiting areas while you are in class or when you are done with them.
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
Students of e-dance center can use the studio spaces for a fee of $10 per hour to practice etc. Students are not allowed to hang out in studios when empty or to just use without asking permission from the e-dance center office first.
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. Excused absences are those that have been sent to Ms Blake at firstname.lastname@example.org in advanced of class. Unexcused absences will affect you participation in class.
After three unexcused and/or excused 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. Letting Ms Blake know the reason for your absence will help as staff decide on participation in class and show. Being 10 or more minutes late to class will count as an unexcused absence.
There will also be mandatory show practices scheduled. Dress rehearsal and Show dates will be listed on our website. Please check on these dates and if for any reason you cannot 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 affect 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. Registration fee is non-refundable.
Families are to add a credit card/bank card in their customer portal. (for all fees) Tuition will be charged to your credit card/bank card in your portal on the 1st of the month. If tuition is not paid by the 10th of the month, a $25 late fee will be charged to account.

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 follows the Elizabethtown Area School Districts Snow Cancelation. If Elizabethtown Area Schools are closed or if they dismiss early due to bad weather, E-Dance Center will be closed and will remain closed. Make-up days will be scheduled due to closings.
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.
