POLICIES


Registration

ballet classes in Thornton ColoradoRegistration can be done online or in person. Click here to register online.  Premire does NOT charge a registration fee.  

Your first month’s tuition must be paid to secure your student’s spot, however, credit cards are NOT charged at the time of online registration. Please give us 24 hours to post the tuition in your portal after you register. Once we post your tuition (based on your total hours) you will receive an email that the we posted your fees.  You can then pay tuition online and save your dancer's spot.  We ask that you pay tuition within 48 hours to securee your spot.  

You can also calculate your tuition and pay upon enrollment. 

Please enroll early if you have a specific time or class that works best for you! It’s not unheard of for some classes fill in the first hour or two of enrollment being open. Please put yourself on any waitlists that are applicable as then we know we have interest to open additional classes. 

If you accidently enrolled in the wrong level or class you will need to email or call us.  You will not be able to delete an enrollment.

Tuition

  • Tuition payments should be made during class hours (4:30 - 8:00 pm Monday through Thursday; 4:30 - 6:30 pm on Fridays; or 9:00 am - 12 noon on Saturdays).
  • Tuition is calculated from when classes begin in August until December, and then from January to June. Tuition remains the same whether it is a long (5 week) or short (3 week) month.  
  • We are working on enabling auto-billing this Fall! Stay tuned.
  • Premier School of Dance accepts cash, checks, Visa and Mastercard. There is a $20 fee for returned checks. Tuition is due by the 9th of each month; a $10 late fee will be assessed after the 14th. If someone other than the parent (grandparent or guardian) is paying tuition please let us know.

Attendance

Regular attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class. If a dancer is more than 15 minutes late for class they will be asked to observe, and will not be allowed to participate (at the discretion of the teacher). This is for their safety. The progression of exercises are designed to warm up a dancer for more strenuous work. If a dancer misses that, their body can be prone to injury.

Make-up Classes

Dancers can make up a missed class. Check with your instructor or the front desk for the appropriate class to take. If your dancer is going to miss class, a phone call is appreciated. Credits are NOT given if a dancer misses class. A credit is given only when the studio has to cancel class due to weather or a teacher's absence. New this Year!  Premier has always credited families for snow days (which is NOT standard practice for most studios).  In order to make the process easier we will still issue a credit if the studio cancels class, but the credit will be a flat fee, regardless of how many classes you take.  That credit will be $12.00.

Inclement Weather

When there is inclement weather, we do not follow any school district policies, as we have students in many school districts. The decision to cancel class due to bad weather depends on evening conditions and temperatures. The decision will be made by 3:00pm. We will post on the website, on Facebook, Instagram, or on the answering machine. Please check before driving to the studio. If conditions change during the evening hours we will notify parents as soon as possible. We no longer make personal phone calls for cancelations.

Parent Watch Days

Premier has set parent watch days for each class throughout the year. We will set a schedule for Parent Watch in October and February/March and email out a schedule.

Dance studios in Colorado for boys and girls

"Dance has taught me strength, discipline, and confidence while at the same time it has given me an outlet to be comfortable with expressing myself.

Premier has given me a second home and I wouldn’t be the young woman I am today without dance and this amazing studio..."
