* Missed classes Semi Private classes: As a rule there are no make up sessions for missed classes. We constantly review each week so if you happen to miss a class you can catch up the following week.
* Cancellation policy Private lessons: Please give a 24 hour notice for private lesson cancellation to avoid charges. We are lenient on emergencies but please let us know as early as possible so we can try to book the open slot.
24 hour notice - No Charge
Less than 24 hour notice - Full charge (of your tuition rate) if we cannot book the slot.
*Tuition policies - MD Studioz LLC in licensed in the State of Florida as a Ballroom Dance Studio #00304.
The Ballroom dance industry in Florida is State regulated, therefore we follow the Florida State Ballroom dance Act for all tuition and cancellation procedures. As a rule MD Studioz LLC does not use a contract for lesson purchases but we do have our contract on file with the state of Florida and we will supply a copy of it to you upon request.
*Parking at the studio - The City has parking restrictions for home based businesses. Parking in my driveway is fine. Three cars will fit if side by side and end to end on the concrete drive. Also directly in front of the house or my neighbors house (on our side of the street) is fine as well. The tiny sliver of space to the left of my driveway (between the 2 driveways) is too small to park and is designated and marked as a "No Parking" zone.
*Dress code -
Shoes: Generally we suggest a leather sole or something that slides on the wood fairly easily. Thongs and strapless shoes are not suggested. Shoes should be strapped or laced to stay on the foot. Optimum suggestion is to invest in a pair of ballroom dance shoes.
Attire: For social classes:
Dress should be comfortable yet appropriate for partner dancing. Shirt should be: short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve. (Please no tank tops, no half shirts).
For advanced, competition, exhibition dancers: We suggest "dance outfits" on every lesson: Dance shoes a must for men and ladies. Latin or Ballroom Skirts or tights for ladies. "Dance pants/trunks" are suggested under skirts. Ladies shirts should be minimum of cap sleeve. (Please no tank T's and please no half shirts).
*Use of studio -
Active students may use the studio to practice, warm up, stretch, cool down, etc 15 minutes before their scheduled lesson.These policies are designed for the comfort of the staff and members of the studio. Please take them into consideration on your lessons to help maintain the integrity and comfort of partner dancing at the studio.
Thank You, MD
