OUR PROMISE TO YOU
We will treat you the same way we would like to be treated. While we anticipate hosting IN-PERSON, SOCIALLY-DISTANCED classes (outdoors and/or indoors), if the State of NJ requires us to halt in-person classes, we promise to continue instruction via Zoom at regularly scheduled class times. Attendance is still expected, as it is the only way students can progress with choreography and/or other performance information. We are making a commitment to you, therefore, by enrolling in classes, you are making a commitment to yourself/student, the other members of your class(es) and Performing Arts 5678. Refunds will not be given unless Performing Arts 5678 cannot continue instruction either in-person or virtually. (In the event that instructors have Technical Difficulties/Power Outage/Sickness, makeup classes will be scheduled.)
Classes take place inside our newly renovated studio, located on the 2nd floor of the VFW. Our floor is a professional, sprung dance floor, providing a safe environment for all involved. (The 2nd - 5th Grade Acting Class will take place outdoors in our Amphitheatre while weather permits, as their Spring performance will take place in our outdoor theatre.) While Performing Arts 5678 has an outdoor dance floor, this will ONLY be used if a situation arises (ie: pandemic closing indoor activities).
You will be notified via email if classes are cancelled due to weather. Each day of the week has one built-in "Snow Day". If NJ experiences more than one "Snow Day" for any particular day of the week, make-up classes will be scheduled.
The performances for Dance, Acting, and Musical Theatre Classes aim to be held in May. One "All-Inclusive" Recital Fee will be priced based on the venue cost, and must be paid by April 1st. An indoor performance space will be reserved. If outdoor options are required by New Jersey, we will adapt accordingly. Click HERE for Recital Details. (For an idea, the 2022-2023 Recital Fee was $163, and included the cost of the venue, photography, videography, lighting, sound, etc... This fee will be figured out based on the cost of the actual recital and will be due NO LATER THAN APRIL 1st.
CLASS SIZE, ENROLLMENT, & SCHEDULE
Class size is limited to twelve (12) students. Classes may be added or combined, based on enrollment. You will be notified asap if we must adjust the schedule. Every effort will be made to accommodate class-style selections and scheduling. If a class does not meet minimum enrollment and/or has to be rescheduled and you cannot attend the alternate class, you will be given a full refund of any funds paid for that canceled/rescheduled session.
