Our Policies

Liability Policy

Parents/guardians aware that dance training and the athletic exercises associated with it place unusual stress on the body and carries a risk of physical injury. Parents/guardians assume the risk and agree that Goh Ballet and the Dance Program shall not be liable in any way for injuries sustained during attendance, dance class or any related functions. Parents/guardians understand that good dance training involves touching and adjustment of the student’s body by the instructor. Parents/guardians acknowledge that neither the Goh Ballet, the Dance Program nor its instructors are responsible for any loss of or damage to the student’s personal property.

Medical Policy

In the event that a parent/guardian cannot be reached, the management, faculty, administration, staff and chaperones of the Dance Program are authorized to enact any emergency medical care that may be required by students during participation in classes, performances or any related Dance Program events. This authorization extends throughout the current academic year. Parents/guardians are responsible for any and all charges as a result of such care or medical treatment. Parents/guardians understand that if the student requires an epinephrine pen (EpiPen) administered in the event of an allergic reaction, a letter detailing permission of administration is required. Without this letter, an EpiPen cannot be administered by any Dance Program faculty members under any circumstances. If a student requires prescription medication for any reason, a letter of permission of administration is required. Without this letter, the Dance Program faculty will not administer any prescription medication.

Tuition Payment Agreement

Parents/guardians agree to pay for the dance instruction per the published tuition rates, extra classes fees (if applicable), performance fees, costume fees and competition fees (if applicable) for the student’s period of study.

Cancellation & Withdraw Policy

Students who wish to discontinue lessons prior to the end of the school year must notify their dance instructor in writing. Partial term refunds will only be given for medical reasons.
