Tuition is not refundable and no adjustments can be made for the number of days or classes in a given month or for days missed due to illness or any personal inconveniences. A student who withdraws from a class must do so in writing by contacting our studio office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. no later than the 15th of the month or the next month's full tuition will be automatically withdrawn from your account and not refunded or credited.

For ACH accounts, the total amount due must be delivered in cash directly to The Next Step Dance Studio, Inc. by the 15th of that month and the student will not be allowed to participate in classes until the account is current.

Absences
Please report all absences to the studio by leaving a message at 925-831-0777. Makeup classes can be arranged through the office but must be taken within the calendar month paid for and not in the student's regularly enrolled class. Be aware that it is not always possible for us to offer more than one class a week in any given style or age group/level. If there is another class available and it is not full, we will be happy to arrange a makeup. Thank you for your understanding.
 

 

Dress Code
Pre-Ballet and Ballet: Black leotard (any style), pink tights, pink ballet slippers (with elastic sewn in) and hair in a bun.

Princess & Kindergarten Pre-Dance: Be creative in any style leotard and tutu, pink tights and pink ballet slippers (with elastic sewn in). Beige tap shoes are required for combo classes.

Jazz: Jazz shorts/pants or leggings and a tank top, sports bra or fitted top. Beige jazz shoes (any style) are required for shoes.

Hip-Hop: Jazz shorts/pants, leggings or sweatpants and a tank top, sports bra or fitted top. Tennis shoes or dunks are required for shoes.

Tap: Jazz shorts/pants or leggings and a tank top, sports bra or fitted top. Beige Tap shoes are required for shoes.


Late Arrival to Class
Late arrival to class must be discouraged as classes are structured to accommodate warming up the body properly. Coming in late is dangerous to the muscles and disrupts the concentration of the class. Therefore, students arriving more than 15 minutes late will be asked to sit and watch rather than participate.


Observing Class
Parents are invited to observe during the first week of each month. At all other times classes are "closed," and parents are asked to wait outside until class is over. This is not only an issue of space, but also of not distracting the students.
