Studio Rules and Regulations

      • Registration: There will be a $25 ANNUAL REGISTRATION FEE for each individual student ($10 additional student registration fee) due in January and/or at the time of registration. If student does not attend class for more than a month, registration must be paid again upon return.

      • Tuition: $60/MONTH. Single households with multiple students will be charged $20 per additional student. Adult Folklórico Class is $40/month; this class is free to parents with enrolled children. Tuition is due by the 5th of each month. If your tuition is late, you will be charged a late fee of $10 per student. Tuition will not be pro-rated for holidays or class re-schedule. Tuition will be pro-rated for new students joining mid-months. If tuition is passed due, tuition must be paid before the student may be allowed to attend the class.

      • Withdrawal Policy: You are responsible to notify the director if your child will stop being a member of ACDF. The Parent/Guardian continues to be responsible for tuition during the 30-day notice period. All students are considered enrolled until we receive a written notice, a talk to parent in person, phone or via email. Please do not leave phone messages.

      • Absences: No refunds or deductions will be made for lessons missed.

      • Performances: ACDF performs at various functions and community events. While the Main and Competitive Companies will perform the majority of these shows, ACDF will, under special circumstances, allow its beginner and intermediate students to perform. Parents and students should note that the company exists to teach dance, and not to perform simply for the sake of performance. We give a minimum notice of one month for scheduled performances. ACDF does not require any of its students to perform; however, they are encouraged to participate in small shows throughout the year and in the company’s large productions in the fall and spring.
      • Costumes: Each dancer is responsible for purchasing his/her own costumes. All costumes MUST be purchase from the company. No outside costumes will be accepted. Two new costumes per dancer are required each year (average total of $300/season) unless otherwise informed. Costumes prices will be given as soon as possible to ensure adequate time to make payment. Costume deposits are non-refundable.

      • Privacy & Confidentiality: Students’ lists, names, phone numbers and addresses are not to be used for other purpose than the exclusive activities of ACDF.

      • Parents are not permitted to observe class unless prior arrangements have been made with instructor and/or working on a project. Acceptation made in certain classes.

      • Communication: ACDF has several methods of communication with dancers and parents. (1) Memos and handouts will be given to dancers or posted to studio door. (2) A Facebook group “ALCORTA'S - Parents and Dancers” has been created to pass out information, post memos, links to music, video clips and more.

      • All cell phones should be turned off or in vibrate mode in the studio (students and observers). Cell phones may be used outside the building. If a cell phone is taken away from the student, the parent will need to come back at the end of the instructional day to pick it up. No classes will be disrupted to return cell phones.

      • Students should be on time for class. Plan to arrive approximately five minutes before your class. Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late will not be allowed into the class that day. This is to eliminate disrupting the class and to ensure appropriate warm up time for all students.

      • Students must be picked up on time at all times. No exceptions. It is not the instructors, directors, and group representative’s responsibility to wait after class for your child to be picked up. If you are running late due to an emergency you must contact the director immediately. If this becomes a repetitive occurrence, after the third offence a $25 fee will be applied to your next month’s tuition.
