Parent Watch Week:
We understand parents enjoy watching their children dance; however, it is very distracting to the dancers and the instructors
Studio 89 Inc. sets aside a designated watch week for parents to attend. During this time, you will have a chance to observe your child’s progress. This is a positive experience for the dancers, so we ask that you refrain from negative comments about other dancers in the class
Students who attend the competitive program will have a set schedule time slot for parents to view beforehand. Not every class will be available to watch.
All choreography is considered the property of Studio 89 Inc. and its instructors. No dancers or parents shall post choreography on any social media sites. All parents and dancers must obtain prior approval to record any class from the instructor or the Director. Posting any videos, whether private or public, of choreography may lead to being asked to leave the studio without any kind of warning or refund.

All recital tickets must be paid in full at time of purchase and will not be refunded if unused.
Please note that if your child does not attend any class for any reason, Monthly Tuition must still be made on the 1st of every month.
