Mitchell's Dance Studio Policies
We follow the Beverly Public School calendar for holidays and vacations. All classes are canceled when
Beverly schools are closed due to inclement weather. (Classes will be held on staff development and early
release days, however). We may also need to cancel classes at other times. Please be sure that we have the
correct phone number where you can be reached on the day(s) of your lesson(s) in case we need to cancel.
No food or drinks (other than water) are allowed in the studio rooms. Water containers must be covered
(no cups or glass bottles).
There will no longer be any drop-in classes. Students must register to ensure a space in the class.
Due to social distancing restrictions, no more than six students will be allowed per class.
A Non-refundable Registration Fee of $15.00 ($25.00/ 2 or more siblings) will be collected at the time of
your initial registration.
All checks must be made payable to Mitchell’s Dance Studio.
Venmo payments must be paid to @mitchellsdancestudio.
A 5% discount is given if the tuition for the whole year is paid in full, on or before the 1 st lesson.
You will be responsible for replacing the payment (plus a $10 service charge) on any returned checks.
After the 2nd returned check, all future payments must be made with a certified check or cash only.
A $10.00 Late fee will be applied to all payments that are made late.
All tuition payments are non-refundable.
It is considered an absence if a student is not present, is not wearing appropriate dance wear/footwear,
sits out of class for 15 minutes or more because of injury or illness, arrives 15 minutes or more late, or must
leave 15 minutes or more before the end of class. If a student is “absent” for 2 classes in a row, a make-up
lesson may be scheduled at the private lesson cost of $20.00 per ½ hour. A student may not be allowed back
to class until this make-up lesson is taken.
