Each new student may book up to 2 trial classes. A trial class booking does not guarantee a spot in that class. If the class is filled before your trial class date, your trial class may be rescheduled to another day/time and you will be unable to enroll in that class. You will be charged a drop-in fee if you would like to book additional trial classes.
If a class is full, please sign up for the waitlist. When a spot opens, you will receive a text and email notification that a spot is available and a link to register. Registration for the open spot will be first come first serve. To be removed from the waitlist, please respond to the text or email and let us know.
Your enrollment holds a place for your dancer in class. Once you are enrolled, it is up to the dancer to uphold their commitment to come to class. Continual absences will disrupt your dancer's learning and progress. As a courtesy, if you do miss a class, we will do our best to schedule a make up class, but it is not guaranteed. A make up class can be scheduled if there is space available in another section of the same class. (Adults can schedule a make up class in any other Adult class they feel comfortable taking.) If no other section is available, or there is no space, then a make up class cannot be scheduled. Make up classes cannot be transferred between family members. All make up classes must take place during the same session that the absence took place (e.g. Fall, Spring, or Summer session). During a session, dancers can schedule a maximum of 3 make up classes for each class they are enrolled in. A dancer must be enrolled in the session to schedule make up classes. If you unenroll from classes, you will not be able to schedule/take make up classes. Make up classes cannot be scheduled during the first two weeks of a session, watch weeks, or during May/June (to allow classes to focus on performance readiness). Please know that when taking a make up class during Spring Session, the instructor may ask your dancer to watch while the class learns or practices performance choreography.
Please arrive on time for class. Students who arrive later than 10 minutes may be asked to watch from the side, at the teacher’s discretion. Student safety is the primary factor in making this decision. Each class begins with a carefully designed warm-up. Missing warm-ups increases the risk of injury.
A late fee of $2/minute per child will be charged starting 10 minutes after the scheduled end time of a camp or class. For example, if a class ends at 9 PM and pick-up happens at 9:15 PM, the late fee will be $10. This fee is used to pay our staff for their time waiting with your child. Eastside Dance will attempt to contact the parent or guardian on file if there is a late pickup. If a parent or guardian cannot be reached after 45mins, the Police may be contacted for assistance and safety. Repetitive late pickup will result in the suspension of services.
All classes and camps are subject to cancelation if the class or camp has fewer than 4 students enrolled. If your class or camp is canceled, we will make every attempt to find a comparable class/camp at a suitable day and time. If your schedule does not allow for a change, you will be refunded for the remaining classes or camp sessions. If a class has fewer than 4 students, a teacher may elect to shorten the class if all the material has been taught.
Eastside Dance uses the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) emergency and severe weather closures as a guideline; however, we will always assess if we can safely operate. When a decision has been made to close the studio, we will email and text all impacted families and update our website homepage. If classes are canceled due to emergencies/weather/power outages, we will do our best to schedule a make up class upon request. If a make up cannot be scheduled, we will apply a class credit to your account.
Our lobby library provides dance books for dancers to read in the lobby and check out. Dancers who are enrolled in school year classes can check one book at a time. There are no checkouts during our summer session (camps and classes). Dancers have one week to return their books. Books 4 weeks overdue will automatically be charged a $20 replacement fee to the card on file.
The lost and found can be found in our lobby. Lost and found items will be donated to a local charity regularly.
Please do not bring nuts or food containing nuts to the studio to help keep our community safe.
Eastside Dance follows all local and national COVID-19 guidelines and maintains cleaning practices intended to reduce the potential for the spread of COVID-19. If you test positive for COVID-19, please stay home for 5 days or until you are symptom-free.
