Joy of Dance NH On-Line Instruction Disclaimers

By entering class, I agree to the following disclaimers

The Joy of Dance NH On-Line broadcast instruction is intended only for our students.  No recording or rebroadcast of instructional sessions or materials is allowed.  Unlike in-studio instruction, personal supervision of students participating in dance by Joy of Dance NH personnel is impossible, and the responsibility for safe surroundings and safe practices during participation is that of the student, or the student’s parents or guardians, and Joy of Dance NH takes no responsibility for injury which might occur during sessions which are not supervised by it.

Spring Break

The studio will be OPEN during the scheduled Spring Break from April 25th- May 1st. This will make up for the lost class time in March.

Recital

Our 2019-2020 Recital is still scheduled for June 6th & 7th. We will continue to monitor the ever-changing situation and update you if any changes occur.  You can head over to the Recital tab of our website to view various important details about the big day!

 

  May/June Tuition Reminder

Just a reminder that yearly tuition is calculated per the average number of weeks in the year then divided into 9.5 payments. This makes paying monthly easier than calculating a different amount each month as “one month” isn’t always 4 weeks of classes. If you have not already, please reach out to us to let us know right away if you have any concerns involving payment.

Class Recommendations & Fall Schedule 

We have pushed back the recommendations release date to April 10th to space things out a little for you at this time.  For those who are renewing membership, we will send out a Google Form for you to let us know what classes you would like to take next year. Please return the form by April 20th.  If you are not returning at this time, we have included your recommendations as well in case you decided to return to dance at a later date.  We expect to release the 2020-2021 schedule by the end of May.

Class recommendations roughly follow the age of the dancer, but experience and other factors do affect placements as well.  All of our teachers have put a lot of thought into the best placements for our students to grow the best.  Please encourage constructive conversations and discourage any negative discussions you may hear from your dancers about where other dancers have been placed.  At Joy of Dance, we focus on positivity and growth and you can help to aid this focus by encouraging constructive conversations.

There are a lot of factors that go into class placements, and our teachers have years of training and education to determine the best placements for all our dancers.  As our dancers are constantly changing and growing, we are also constantly reassessing our dancers, and therefore will let you know if recommendations change by the end of the year or the beginning of the next year.  You will have an opportunity to schedule a placement meeting through zoom for dancer and parent to attend to discuss any concerns as well. Thank you for your help and understanding on this matter!
