Pricing & Policies

STUDIO POLICIES

Dance with Joy Studios offers 2 types of class structures: Series and Non-Series.

“Series” Class Policies

  • Series classes occur weekly for one full month, beginning with the first week of the month and ending the last week of the month.
  • These classes require you to preregister online 24 hours in advance. Classes that do not meet minimum enrollment for the entire session are subject to cancellation. (Please make sure to preregister!)
  • We notify you of a class cancellation by email. Please be sure to update your online profile with the best email address to reach you. In the case of a class being cancelled, your payment will be saved and used for another class, or it will be refunded to your card.
  • If you pre-register for a class and do not show up, you will still be charged for this class.

Non-series Class Policies

  • Nonseries classes have a self-contained lesson each week, rather than material that builds from week to week.
  • These classes require you to preregister online 24 hours in advance. Classes that do not meet minimum enrollment 24 hours prior to class are subject to cancellation. (Please make sure to preregister!)
  • We notify you of a class cancellation by email. Please be sure to update your online profile with the best email address to reach you. In the case of a class being cancelled, your payment will be saved and used for another class, or it will be refunded to your card.
  • If you pre-register for a class and do not show up, you will still be charged for this class.

Minimum Enrollment

All classes at Dance with Joy Studios require a 3-person enrollment minimum. Less than 3 people is considered a private lesson. If a class has low enrollment (1 or 2 person), they are offered the opportunity to have a private lesson for a greatly reduced price of $30. Please make sure to pre-register for each class you are going to take so that instructors know if a class is or is not going to meet it’s minimum enrollment.

Refund Policy for all Classes

All sales are final, no exceptions. However, you may transfer your pre-purchased classes to a friend or family member if you wish to share the packages you have purchased.

Private Lesson Cancellation Policy

Please cancel a private lesson with 24 hours notice or you will be charged for the teacher’s time. Thank you for your care and understanding.

Observing Dance Classes

We always encourage a person interested in our classes to participate and try a class or two to decide which class is a best fit for their interest and learning style. Our pricing is kept low, with many class package options available, to allow you to try many forms of dance and movement.  Our studio policy does not allow students to observe a class unless it is with the full permission of the teacher and all of the students of the class and, even then, this is only for the last few minutes of a class, not the full class.   The policy is set in place to care for our students and keep a feeling of safety within the classroom environment while learning something new, a classroom energy dynamic that is shared with a teacher and their students.

Pricing & Pre-Registration Options

We offer many options for you to sign up for classes and learn to dance! Our hope is that one of these options will be the perfect fit for you. After reading the information below, please ask us questions if you are uncertain about pricing, how to pay, or our different packages. We are here for you and are happy to help you find the way that best serves your needs in terms of budget and time.

Ways to Pay

We offer three ways to pay (1) cash (2) check or (3) credit card. We accept all major credit cards online and in-person at the studio. Cash and checks are always appreciated as credit card processing fees are high. Please make your checks out to Dance with Joy Studios.

*Although we do feel our rates are fair and competitive with the going rate of a dance professional’s time, we know that for some students a private lesson is out of reach. For this reason, we do on occasion offer a sliding scale & scholarship option. This is available for students who need this option and is a case-by-case decision.
