Studio Policies

Authorization and Release

I authorize Centre Stage Dance Studio and its representatives to consent to medical treatment for my child when I cannot be reached to so consent.  I am fully aware that any activity involving motion, height, or athletic activities creates the possibility of serious injury, and I further agree to hold Centre Stage Dance Studio and its staff and officers harmless for any injury or resulting expense(s).  I release and discharge all rights and claims against Centre Stage Dance Studio.  Centre Stage Dance Studio strives to provide the maximum in safety procedures and guidelines, and cannot assume responsibility for any accidents, injury, or illness that may occur. I authorize Centre Stage Dance Studio to use photographs, video and/or likenesses of me/ my child for use in its promotional material or sales, website, and social media and waive any rights of compensation or ownership thereto. 


Liability- Centre Stage Dance Studio and its staff will NOT be held liable for anything left, lost, or stolen at the studio, including items that are placed in the lost and found and then donated. Anyone caught stealing things will be immediately dismissed from the program (with NO refunds!) and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. This includes taking anything that does not belong to you from anywhere in the studio. 

Tuition is per month and is not dependent on the number of classes in the month.  Some months there will be fewer classes due to holidays, etc.  Tuition is charged to the card on file the first of each month.  All lessons must be paid for whether the student is in class or not.  If a student registers late in the season, the all inclusive fees will be added to the monthly tuition to ensure full payment for costumes, recital and registration fees, etc. There is a $25 late fee for tuition paid after the 1st of each month, even if your child has been absent. There is a $30 service fee for all returned checks.   

Emails: Monthly email newsletters are sent out to parents.  Please ensure that we have your correct email address.  Important information is sent out and it is YOUR responsibility to read these emails and know what is going on.

Absences and Make-up lessons:  If your child is absent, please notify the director to set up a make-up class. Make-ups are only available for some classes so please make sure your child is in class as much as possible.


Centre Stage Dance Studio is a professional program for dedicated dancers. In order to drop, a 30 day notice must be given to avoid an additional month’s tuition due. This notice can be given by contacting the studio via email or phone with a written 30 day notice.

All parents, students, and any others that enter the building agree to always put forth their best “Star Behavior.” This includes being respectful to others, arriving on time and prepared, adhering to policies, respecting teacher and director decisions, and being supportive of the Centre Stage Dance Studio program. Centre Stage believes in developing the dancer as a whole. This means that everyone (including parents) should look for ways to set good examples, work hard, and make the world a more beautiful place. Anyone not adhering to these policies (as determined by the director) will be removed from the program without any refunds.  

Classes and programs at Centre Stage are subject to change at any time. We will provide notice to all students if class changes are to be made.

Agreement for Autopay:

I agree to have my card on file charged according to the tuition, private lessons (if applicable) and charge schedule for which my child is enrolled. I recognize and agree to no refunds. I will make sure that my credit card on file is up to date. There will be a $25 late fee on all charges that are not paid by the first of each month. 

I and my student agree to the following protocols:

-Parents should not leave until their child has been admitted into the building. 

-Parents are to wait outside during class times to reduce distractions in the studio. 

-If your child is late she may come inside but will need to wait in the front of the lobby before entering the dance floor. Students/Parents must do their best to be on time and perpetually tardy students will not be allowed to continue.

-Students that show symptoms or have a fever over 100 will not be admitted.

If you are entering zoom as a parent to watch the younger children dance, you must enter a name on zoom that clearly identifies you as the parent and have your video on long enough to check in with the teacher. Anyone that is not clearly identified will be removed.

-At all times, please do not send your child to class if she or someone in your household is sick or has been sick in the last 14 days. Please take advantage of our virtual options when someone in the house is sick.

ASSUMPTION OF THE RISKS AND RELEASE: I recognize that there are certain inherent risks associated with participation in group activities and I assume full responsibility for personal injury and illness (including communicable diseases such as MRSA, influenza and Covid-19) to my dancer(s), myself, and my family members or guests, and further release and discharge Centre Stage Dance Studio and Tylene Nichols LLC for injury, loss or damage arising out of my or my family’s use of or presence upon the facilities of Centre Stage Dance Studio.

INDEMNIFICATION. I agree to indemnify and defend Centre Stage Dance Studio and Tylene Nichols LLC against all claims, causes of action, damages, judgments, costs or expenses, including attorney fees and other litigation costs, which may in any way arise from my or my family’s use of or presence upon the facilities of Centre Stage Dance Studio.

AUTHORIZATION OF EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE- I hereby authorize the staff and director representing Centre Stage Dance Studio to give consent for any and all necessary emergency medical care for my child, while said child is in the custody of Centre Stage Dance Studio personnel.  I also hold harmless Centre Stage Dance Studio and Tylene Nichols LLC or any other Centre Stage Dance Studio personnel in such an event. I will provide all pertinent medical conditions my child has, including asthma and food allergies.

I and my dancer agree to abide by these rules and all other policies from Centre Stage.
