Withdrawing, Dropping, or Adding Classes

Should you need to withdraw from any or all classes at any time other than at the end of the session, you must submit the appropriate form (found below) as notice to our office no later than the 28th of the month.  To withdraw from all classes and financial obligations, a completed withdrawal form must be turned in to our office. If a withdrawal form is not submitted by the 28th of the month, you are responsible for continuing to pay tuition and late fees until the form is turned in, regardless of attendance.

Tardiness & Attendance

Attendance is essential in your dancer’s progress. Missed classes may be made up within the same month of the missed class. A student who comes late to class may be asked to sit out, however repeated tardiness may result in termination of lessons.

Extreme Weather

PDC will mostly follow Austin ISD after school closures, however an email will be sent out to confirm closure. Refunds for lessons missed or canceled due to weather related or holiday closures will not be given.

Etiquette

Only water is allowed in the dance rooms. Chewing gum will not be permitted in class. At Premiere Dance Center, we strive to provide a family environment for all dancers, parents and staff. Please be respectful of other dancers, parents, teachers and PDC property while at or representing Premiere Dance Center.
