Policies

Annual Registration Fee of $55 (non-refundable) per child or $75 per family must be paid before the 1st class.

LaVida Dance Studio's Season is like a 12 month school year. We guarantee at least 44 classes during the yearly season. Some months may have 2 or 5 weeks worth of classes, but the monthly fee will stay the same. Summer schedule is modified. Monthly fees are automatically charged to your credit or debit card on the first of each month until you tell us to stop. ANYONE PARTICIPATING IN THE ANNUAL SHOW MUST BE CURRENTLY ENROLLED.

Tuition Payment:

Automatic Monthly Payment - your MasterCard, Visa, Discover or Debit card will automatically be charged on the 1st of each month. Forget having to remember to pay online or wait in lined to avoid having to pay a late fee!

We allow a one-month pause once a year. We must be emailed about using your pause by the 15th of the month prior.

Enrollment to number of classes per week may change and the tuition will be adjusted accordingly.

Dress Code Attire:

LaVida Dance students are required to wear uniform determined and ordered through LaVida Dance Studio. A member of our wonderful staff will be available at the front desk to measure and order the attire your child needs. After two weeks from the first visit students in appropriate attire only will be allowed to enter classroom. If you have more questions please see FAQ.

NOTE: Hip Hop and Pop Culture classes required dance sneakers or a pair of clean sneakers used only for dance, and comfortable, loose, modest attire. Students must bring and change their shoes before they enter the classroom. In the event that students enter 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, low cut tops, clothing that exposes belly button or "cheeks", shirts that have profanity or suggestive slogans.

Withdrawal and Refund/Return Policy

Tuition and Registration fees are Non-Refundable and Non-Transferable. Notification to withdraw from class must be received in writing by LaVida Studio via email info@lavidastudio.com by the 15th of the previous month. For example, if you would like to cancel your enrollment by June please write us an email by May 15th stating your wish to un-enroll. NO EXCEPTIONS. Stopping to attend classes does not mean automatic withdrawal. We will keep your spot in the class until you request the withdrawal in writing.

LaVida Studio will not have classes during the following holiday breaks: Thanksgiving Weekend and Winter Break, Memorial Weekend, Independence Day Weekend, Labor Dance Weekend. The total value of these breaks have been considered and reflected in the final price of monthly tuition amount. There are no additional refunds or credits for missed dance days due to holidays.

LaVida Studio follows Lake Washington School District for any emergency/weather related closing.

Recital/Show

Every child is expected to participate in our annual recital that takes place mid-May. Registration process for the performance starts November or as soon as the theater is reserved.  Participation is optional, but highly encouraged. Studies show that students who have an annual goal have a higher focus and commitment rate to learning. If you are not going to participate at the recital you must Opt-out in writing within 2 weeks after the Performance Registration process starts.

Inclement Weather

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. Due to scheduling constraints, we are unable to reschedule entire classes. However students may attend an appropriate class at their convenience in order to make up for class missed due to closure. Make-ups are available until April 1st, due to annual show rehearsals. We do not refund or pro-rate tuition due to inclement weather closings.
We do include few days to a week in the yearly schedule to cover for any closures and cancellations.

Lock-down

At any circumstances when 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 zoom link will be sent to each class. Any changes to enrollment or registration will follow the same policy with no exceptions.

 

Make-up Policy

We understand that our students will have times where they are out of town, sick, or busy with a previous arrangement and as such we allow for currently enrolled students to sign up for make-up classes.

If you know beforehand that you'll be missing the class, you will have an opportunity to take the live-stream class online from any place you are at.

We also include one make-up week at the end of June (usually the 3rd week) in our schedule to give additional opportunity to make-up any missed classes.

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

- Your child may attend a different class within their age range;

- 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 your child's age and are not full are eligible to be used for a make-up.

Thank you for your cooperation. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We are so happy to welcome you into the LaVida Community!
