Classes that are missed due to illness or injury, can be made up for during the same month when the class was missed and are not transferable. If the same level class is not available, the class must be taken at a lower level. Missed classes are non-refundable since you are paying for a spot in the class, not number of classes in a month.

Classes begin promptly; for their own safety if the student arrives after the class starts, he/she may enter only at the teacher’s discretion; If the student arrives 15 minutes after the start of the class, he/she can only enter as an observer in order to avoid injuries since he/she will have missed the warm-up section.

A&DS, recommends that students take the full year with all the subjects indicated for their level thus ensuring the maximum advantages of the lessons and the correct development of their skills.

Any closures will be announced ahead of time.

If you drop between the first and the fourth of a month (before tuition is due), you will only be charged for the classes that occurred during this time (you will still be charged even if your child did not attend since you are paying for the spot in the class). 

If you drop between the first and the 4th of a month, you acknowledge that your card on file will automatically be charged the balance (the amount of classes that occurred during that time whether it is on auto-pay or not).

Failing to show to a class does not constitute canceling or dropping the class. If you are on Autopay, your card will continue to be on file until you cancel or drop. You must contact the front office to complete this process. 


A&DS recommends students to finish the full year, however, if the student wishes to interrupt their training, they must give a two week’s written notification to the school management explaining the reason for their withdrawal and the day on which it will become effective.

If there are debts at the time of the withdraw, the parent or guardian of the student will be responsible for covering these debts right up until the day in which the studio receives the notification of the withdrawal in writing.

The student who is absent for 2 months and 1 day will be automatically withdrawn from the system so he/she will have to pay registration fees again if they wish to enroll.

All students who have dropped all classes are considered inactive and will have to re-enroll if they wish to come back, in that case, registration fees would apply.

All payments made prior to notification of withdrawal are non-refundable and non-transferable

All refunds made will have a processing fee deduction

Either the League Director and/or coach/staff/parent observe the injury or the student-dancer reports it. At the point that a suspected concussion has occurred, the injured dancer is immediately removed from class/show. 


A concussion can affect memory, judgment, reflexes, speech, balance and muscle coordination. People with concussions often report a brief period of amnesia or forgetfulness, where they cannot remember what happened immediately before or after the injury. They may act confused, dazed or describe "seeing stars." Paramedics and athletic trainers who suspect a person has suffered a concussion may ask the injured person if they know their name, what month/year it is and where they are. 

Even mild concussions should not be taken lightly. Neurosurgeons and other brain injury experts emphasize that although some concussions are less serious than others, there is no such thing as a minor concussion. In most cases, a single concussion should not cause permanent damage. A second concussion soon after the first one does not have to be very strong for its effects to be permanently disabling.

Common Symptoms of Concussion

A. Confusion

B. Headache

C. Vision disturbances (double or blurry vision)

D. Dizziness or imbalance

E. Nausea or vomiting

F. Memory loss

G. Ringing ears

H. Difficulty concentrating

I. Sensitivity to light

J. Loss of smell or taste

K. Trouble falling asleep

If any of these occur after a blow to the head, a health-care professional should be consulted as soon as possible. 

No student who displays symptoms of a possible concussion will return to class/show the same day. 


A. Once a concussion is observed and/or suspected, the Director, designee, or staff, or coach contacts the parents with details of the observation cues, symptoms to watch for, and advise dancer cannot return without their physician release.

B. The Dancer must receive clearance prior to returning to class from a medical provider following a concussion assessment and treatment.


A. The Director, staff, coaches and parents monitor a gradual return to daily activities, school, and exercise.

B. This includes the development of a return-to-play plan and observation.

C. Together, the  Director, coaches, staff and parents monitor the development and improvement of symptoms.

D. Concussed dancers should refrain from all physical activity immediately following injury. Once their condition begins to improve, they may resume low-level activity.

E. Once the injured dancer is symptom free, attending school full-time without accommodations, and their physician has issued a medical clearance, they may begin the return-to-play protocol.


In order to return to class, the injured student must complete all steps of a graduated exercise progression, and receive written clearance from a healthcare professional.

A. Graduated Return-to-Play Progression: Injured students must complete each step without a return of symptoms before progressing to the next step. If symptoms return during a step, the student should rest for 24 hours and then resume activity a step below the level where the symptoms occurred.

B. Symptom-Limited Activity: Relative rest for 48-72 hours. Low intensity physical and mental activity at a level that does not exacerbate current symptoms. This also applies to the return-to-learn process and may include recommendations to stay home and limit school hours and homework. Gradual reintroduction of light activity while limiting symptoms.

C. Light Aerobic Exercise: Walking or stationary bike at low to moderate intensity; no contact, resistance, or weight training.

D. Sport Specific Exercise: warmup, skill development and choreography; no jumps or  impact activities.

E. Non-Contact Training: More complex exercises and combinations. Weight training or resistance training may begin.

F. Unrestricted Return-to-Participation/Full Competition or performance participation
