General Information

VISITORS

Parents and visitors may watch from the observation area. If you are inside, please continue to use social distancing precautions and please wear a mask. You will be required to have your temperature checked prior to entering the studio. NO PARENTS or VISITORS are allowed in the classrooms!

 

ATTENDANCE

No refunds or deductions are given for missed classes.  Good attendance is essential to the child's progress. Your child may attend another section of his/her class during the week to make up a missed class.

 

DROP OFFS & PICKUPS

Should be within 5-10 minutes of the beginning and end of class. Upon arrival, your child will be screened by a Tari's School of Dance employee with a temperature check. Dancers will be escorted to their classes by their instructor and brought back out at the end of class.

 

TARDINESS

Arriving late for class is disruptive to the class and it is unfair to the student.  All students must arrive on time.

 

CLASS CANCELLATIONS

We will follow all East Baton Rouge Parish School closures due to bad weather.

 

CLASS PLACEMENT

Students' class placement will be determined according to the age, ability, and maturity of the child. Final decision is based on the instructor.  Students over the age of 12 will be placed in either an advanced performance or non performance class as determined by their ability on the first day of class.

 

DANCE WEAR

Dance wear may be purchased through the Tari Wear store located in Taris School of Dance.

 

LOST and FOUND

Any items found at the studio are placed in the lost and found bin at the studio. Tari's is not responsible for any items, which are left, lost or stolen at or from  the studio.  Please return to the studio immediately to retrieve a forgotten item. Items in Lost and Found that are not picked up by the 15th of each month will be donated to the Salvation Army.  Label all shoes and clothing items.

 

WITHDRAWAL

If, for any reason, it becomes necessary to withdraw a child from a class, please notify the studio by written letter (you may print out the Withdrawal Notice Form below!) before the first of the next month to avoid tuition being charged again. Tuition and other fees will continue to be charged until a letter of withdrawal has been received. No refunds. The final date to Withdrawal/Drop-out from a recital class is October 28th, 2021. Please try to drop earlier than this as we have students on waiting lists for many classes and we do not enroll after this date. After this withdrawal deadline, you will be responsible for paying tuition through the dance recital, and all fees (costume, video, printer, recital) associated with the recital.
