Class Withdrawal:

  • If a student wishes to leave the studio, we  ask for 30 day notice in writing in order to receive credit. There will be NO REFUNDS given, (Exceptions: physical impairment, doctor’s note required). TUITION IS NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-TRANSFERABLE.


Make-Up Classes / Vacations:

It is important to the cohesiveness of your students’ dance training that they attend classes every week as scheduled. If your child will be absent from class, please contact the office prior to the class time. This is especially mandatory with regard to rehearsals and performances. No refund will be given for missed classes. Please refer to WPAS online and in-school calendar for vacation closings. Classes missed due to inclement weather may be made up in a class currently on the schedule. Cancellations by WPAS staff will have a separate make-up class scheduled, if not otherwise specified.  WESTCHESTER PERFORMING ARTS STUDIO RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL A CLASS OR SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS AS NECESSARY.


Class Tardiness:

Students are to arrive on time for class. Students arriving severely late may be asked to sit out of class to reduce the risk of injury after missing warm up. Please call the office to let the instructor know your student will be late if you know you are running behind. In cases of repeated tardiness, parents will be contacted by the instructor.
