Make-up lessons

Students are encouraged to attend another class in their level if they should miss a class due to sickness, a schedule conflict, or a snow day. Please refer to the schedule for all of the options. If students are on unlimited, they can take a class above or below their current level.

Snow day policy

When OPS cancels school or activities on evenings/weekends due to inclement weather, ADA is also closed. ADA DOES NOT FOLLOW THE OPS CALENDAR!

No recital fees!

Your monthly fee covers lessons, up to 3 costumes, uniform leotard, 1 DVD, and 2 recital tickets. There are no additional recital fees. Should you be enrolled in a level with more than 3 costumes (grades 4,5,6) you will be invoiced for the additional costumes your dancer needs.

Tuition

Enrollment assumes full payment of all 8 installments of tuition regardless of voluntary withdrawal or absences for the September through May dance season. A doctor’s note may be required in the event of extended medical leave. Cases will be reviewed on individual bases, and are at the discretion of the administration.

Observation

Parents can only observe their child’s dance lesson if prior arrangements have been made with ADA. Dancers do their best when they are focused on their lessons with their teacher. Should you want to arrange a time to observe a class please contact the office.

Breaks

Scheduled breaks throughout the year are part of the yearlong season and are NOT lessons you have paid for.
