When do In Studio classes start?
Our Fall session will start with In Studio classes beginning the week of September 13th.
Do you offer summer programming?
We will offer a Summer Intensive for current company dancers only this year for the week of July 12-16 and 19th-23rd. Regular classes will resume in the Fall!
What are you doing to ensure everyone’s safety during the pandemic?
Guelph Youth Dance has been working hard to ensure the safety of everyone returning back to dance. We have Policies and Procedures which can be found on our homepage of our website. We encourage everyone to read these carefully. We will follow these procedures until further notice.
Can I enrol for just the Fall to be sure the class is right for me?
Yes! We are continuing to offer classes by the season. Due to class size restrictions, we are offering full year registrations only until August 1st. At that time we will open up spaces for the Fall where spaces are available.
I am on a waiting list- what are my chances of getting into the class?
We will make every effort to ensure everyone can dance. Sometimes it means just juggling the spots available. We will also try to add classes at the same or similar time to ensure everyone has a spot when possible. We highly recommend putting yourself on a waiting list if the class you wish to take is full.
When is tuition due?
Full tuition is due on September 7th to ensure your spot in the class. Please be sure to either pay by sending an e-transfer to email@example.com or by paying online through the Parent Portal.
Can I pay in instalments?
Yes! We offer 3 month payment plans for the Fall session and 8 month payment plans for Full Year registrations. Simply take your total owing and divide it into 3 or 8 equal instalments and date it the 1st of the month from September to April. All instalments must be provided by postdated cheque by September 7th.
Do you offer refunds?
Yes. Your registration fees and company deposits are non-refundable. If you would like to cancel your registration you will be charged a $20 drop in fee per 45-60 minute class for the classes taken to date and will be refunded the balance.
What will happen if businesses are shut down again?
We are ready to move classes online so we can all continue to train! At this point you can decide whether you would like to continue to dance or if you would like a refund (see our refund policy).
What should I wear to dance?
Please visit the For Parents section on our website for a complete list of what to wear to class depending on the class you are enrolled in. We also have an online store if you are in need of any body suits or tights. Log in to your Portal, go to “More” and then go to Online Store.
This is my child’s first dance class- what if they want me to stay close by?
Until further notice our lobby will be closed this Fall to parents to keep everyone as safe. This means parents will drop their child off at 42 Quebec Street with one of our Studio Assistants who will help young dancers find their way to the studio and ensure they feel safe and secure. They will also be close by the whole class time in case anyone needs to go to the bathroom or needs anything at all. Parents will pick up their child at 21 Chapel Lane (entrance off the back of the building). All dancers will be chaperoned to the back until parents arrive. This is the safest scenario for all and we hope that parents can follow this whenever possible. We do however recognize that there will be times when your child needs you to accompany them to their class or stay closer by. We will allow a few parents in our lobby and if space available in Studio C (small studio on the second floor) if absolutely required.
I am sure there are other questions! Do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to help!
