    Attendance
    No make ups or refunds for any missed classes. There will also be no make ups or refunds for classes cancelled due to inclement weather. For snow closings, we follow Central Bucks School District.

    Class Etiquette
    Absolutely NO chewing gum permitted inside the studio at any time. Snacks are permitted in the waiting area only.
    Closed Door Policy: Students must arrive to class on time and prepared to dance. Students who arrive late (15 minutes after the start of class) and unprepared (e.g. dress code and attitude) will not be allowed to participate in class.
    Cell phones should remain outside of the dance studio and on silent mode.
    Students should remove all water bottles, trash, and personal items from the studio once class is finished.

    Tuition
    Tuition is a monthly fee. Tuition must be paid the first week of each month. All payments must be made in cash or check payable to “Bravo Dance Center.” A $10.00 late fee will be applied to the student’s account for tuition received after the 10th of each month.  All returned checks are subject to a $25.00 returned check fee. Tuition will always remain the same regardless if there are 4 or 5 weeks in the month. Tuition will not be prorated for any absences, holidays, or cancelled classes. There are no tuition or costume refunds. 

    Referral Program
    When a friend registers for class at BDC and lists your name as a referral, a $10.00 credit will be added to your account.  There is no limit on credit to your account, so spread the word and get your friends dancing!

    Costumes
    Costume payment information will be available in the Fall.  Every student is required to pay a deposit per costume with the balance due before Winter/Holiday Break. No costume will be ordered unless costume is paid in full. Costume payments are non-refundable.

    Recital
    Each year culminates with an end of the year performance. Dates for performances and dress rehearsals to be determined. 

    For Parents/Guardians
    Parents and guardians are not permitted to watch class while in session. We ask that students be dropped off and picked up after class. For your convenience, a waiting area is available. Observing class on a weekly basis poses a distraction to some of our students. Please refer to our studio calendar for the designated Observation Day that will be held once a year.

    Loyalty
    Studio loyalty is important to BDC.  Students currently enrolled in classes at BDC are not allowed to take dance classes at other local studios, including other local Summer Intensives.

    General Policies
    Upon registration, each student is required to sign our waiver of liability.
    Class schedule is subject to change due to enrollment.
    Every student is expected to act in a respectful and courteous manner towards teachers, staff, and fellow students at all times. When wearing BDC logo apparel or participating in a BDC event (competition, community service, performance, etc.) the above behavior is mandatory.
