LaVida Studio's dance season is like a 12-month school year. Each class receives a minimum of 44 lessons per dance season, the annual tuition has been split into 12 equal monthly payments, so whether a month has 2 lessons or 5 you still pay the same amount each month. Due to the yearly calendar, some classes may end up with one or two lessons above and beyond the 44 guaranteed lessons, which you are not charged for.

Monthly tuition is automatically charged to your credit or debit card on the first of each month until you email us to stop. ANYONE PARTICIPATING IN THE ANNUAL SHOWS MUST BE A MEMBER AND CURRENTLY ENROLLED.

All dancers are required to purchase a Uniform with LaVida logo from the studio. These uniforms are to be worn to classes and are used for the Winter Showcase performances on stage. A member of our wonderful staff will be available at the front desk to fit the correct uniform your child needs. We allow for one class without uniform, if your child does not have a uniform for the second class they will have to sit out of the class and tuition will not be prorated. *Exception, if you have ordered the uniform from the front desk and waiting for a specific size to arrive.

In the event that dancers enter the dance floor in street shoes, they will be asked to remove them and dance barefoot. Please, help us keep our dance floor high quality.

NOT ALLOWED: street shoes, jeans, clothing that exposes "cheeks" or has profanity or suggestive slogans.

BUY TICKET

In dance, performances are like soccer games throughout the season: the expacted culmination of practice and learning. All students love performing and join their dance friends on stage to show the fruits of their work. Studies show that students who have an annual goal have a higher focus and commitment rate to learning. This in turn teaches dancers resilience as well as to celebrate their work, sharing it with family and friends. These are the important life skills students learn through dance at LaVida.

To participate in performances, you must be a currently enrolled member in good standing.
We offer multiple opportunities to perform, including, but not limited to, our two on-stage annual shows:
• Winter Showcase in January/February
• Production/Recital in May/June
We expect and highly encourage all students to participate in both shows, so they are registered when they are enrolled.
Registration is automatic, you must fill out the opt-out form online if you do not want to participate in one or both shows.
Registration for the Winter Showcase and Production/Recital is not included in the monthly tuition.
Registration for the Winter Showcase is $150 per student, charged November 15th
Registration for the Production/Recital is $200 per student + $80 per additional class, charged January 15th
Receive a $50 discount when you participate in BOTH annual shows

Inclement Weather and Unforeseen Circumstances

In case of inclement weather, we operate on the Lake Washington School District policy. If Lake Washington Schools are closed due to inclement weather, the studio will be closed as well, unless we inform otherwise.

If the studio needs to be closed due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather, we will do our best to schedule a make up class if your class allotment falls below the 44 guaranteed lessons per 12-month season. In addition, we include one free open make-up week the third week of June to cover for any closures and cancellations.

Students may also attend an appropriate class at their convenience in order to make up for class missed due to closure. Make-ups are available until May 1st and after Annual Show/Recital, due to annual show rehearsals. We do not refund or pro-rate membership due to inclement weather closings.

Lock-down

At any circumstances when the studio's physical location is ordered to be closed due to federal, state, county or city mandate all classes will be moved online for live-stream, and a zoom link will be sent to each class. Any changes to membership and enrollment will follow the same policy with no exceptions.

Make-up Policy

We understand that our students will have times when they are out of town, sick, or busy with a previous arrangement and as such our members can sign up for free make-up classes.

In addition, we include one make-up week at the end of June (usually the 3rd week) in our schedule to give an additional opportunity to make-up any missed or canceled classes.

- Make-ups are only allowed for students who are currently members. Anyone who has un-enrolled will not be able to make-up. There are no credits, refunds or deductions for classes missed.

- a student may attend a different style class within their age range at their convenience

- make-up classes must be approved prior to the time of the make-up. Please, check the schedule and email us at info@lavidastudio.com

- make-ups must be used within 2 months of absent date

- classes have a maximum capacity. As such, only classes that are within the child's age or younger and are not full are eligible to be used for a make-up.

- make-ups can not be scheduled for classes ages 6 and up, within a month prior to Annual Show Production due to rehearsals.

Suspension

We allow one month auto-pay suspension within the 12-month period. Your membership is paused and your dancer’s spot in class is saved. No attendance or make-ups are allowed during the suspended month. No suspension is allowed during the recital/show months.
Request for suspension must be sent via email by the 15th of the month prior at info@lavidastudio.com

 

Thank you for your cooperation. Please, let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

We are so happy to have you as part of the LaVida Family!
