Our vision is to keep the dancer as the number one priority
Our Mission at KV Dance Studio is to provide a well rounded dance education to all, using current and innovative techniques, while maintaining a pressure-free, family oriented fun environment. Although we provide the opportunity for dancers to experience the competitive world, it is not what defines us. We want dancers to learn how to express themselves to their fullest potential in our classes, not just on a stage.
From scheduling, to lesson planning to even the class atmosphere, we want students and parents alike to feel that the online classes are safe and enjoyable. By dancer we do not mean just the client, we mean the instructors as well. When instructors are happy in the environment and classes they teach in, it shows in their work and attitude.
Class Placement Policy
Dancers are placed into groups based on ability, age and previous experience. We act in the best interest of our students and place them in a group that will allow them to benefit the most from each and every class. Students that are the same age may be placed in different classes based on their participation, attendance, progress, ability and consistency. This is our way of preventing students from having a bad experience by being in a class that may be too easy or too difficult for them.
If an instructor sees that a student would benefit more from being placed in a different group, that student may be asked to switch after the dance year has begun. Please respect the instructor’s knowledge of where your child should be placed in each year of their dance training. Siblings are discouraged from being in the same class. In most cases, siblings tend to pay better attention, make more friends, and have a more valuable experience if they are in separate classes.
We are a welcoming and safe online space, and we ask that all class participants treat each other and our staff with respect and kindness. Failure to do so may result in removal from online classes.
Let us know by email or phone if your child has a medical condition that may affect his/her ability to fully participate in class. The more we know about the condition the more we can help make his/her dance experience the best it can be. All information is confidential.
Overdue Payment Policy
Should your account show a positive balance for any class, merchandise or service for longer than one (1) week, you will be charged a 5% of the outstanding balance late fee which will be required to pay in full. An additional 5% will be added each week that payment is delayed. This is non-negotiable.
On occasion our staff will take class photos for our social media and in order to make a year-end photo album of all our students. By creating an account, you are agreeing to photos being taken of and posted to social media for anyone under your account. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your child will be asked to step out of any pictures taken.
Late Cancellations/No Shows
A cancellation for a CLASS is considered late when the class is cancelled less than 2 hours before the appointed time. A no-show is when a client misses a class or appointment without cancelling.
A cancellation for a PRIVATE LESSON is considered late when the class is cancelled less than 12 hours before the appointed time.
A no-show is when a client misses a class or appointment without cancelling.
In these cases, we will charge the client for the class/appointment and no credit and/or refund will be issued.
For little ones a short time-out may be used for disciplinary issues. This is only used if the child acts out in a way that is detrimental to the enjoyment of the class. Older students may be sent out of the class. Parents will be contacted if students continue to be disruptive.
In extreme cases where a severe infraction has occurred or disciplinary actions have failed to change behavior a student may be dismissed from the dance program.
Cancellations Due to Unforeseeable Events
KV Dance Studio does not give credit and/or refunds for any of its programs missed due to car problems, miscommunication, holidays, birthdays, weddings, funerals, vacation, illness, inclement weather, pandemics, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, lockdowns, power outages, strikes, protests, traffic jams, invasions, etc.
