SOHAILA'S ACADEMY OF ARTISTIC DANCE
- Classes must be paid in full; partial payments cannot be accepted.
- Classes must be paid in full every month in advance to get discounted class prices. NO exceptions.
- Classes can be paid by cash or check or by pay pal (look on my website under classes for details).
Checks that have insufficient funds will be charged a $25 dollar fee and check writing privileges
will be suspended indefinitely. Cash will be the only method of payment.
- In order to get credit for a class that you will miss, you must call or email at least 24 hours in advance. If
you do not call or email you will not receive a credit. NO exceptions.
- No cash refunds. Class credit only with advance notice. NO exceptions.
- Please be on time to class. Make an effort to come to every class. Always bring your class workbooks
and props to every class.
- I urge you to take notes in class. It is up to you to remember new moves, combinations, choreographs,
: once you have made an appointment with Sohaila for a private class, it is on the
calendar, to cancel or reschedule your private you MUST call, or e mail Sohaila at least 8 hours in
advance. If you do not call or e mail to reschedule you will need to pay for that private. NO exceptions.
: If for any reason your schedule changes after you've pre-paid for classes, I'll be glad to provide a refund, however there is a $25 cancellation fee. No refunds will be granted after attending the first class, however I can accommodate for special circumstances by allowing the student to make up remaining classes during the following month after which the student registered (special permission required). Class fees are nontransferable. Annual registration fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable.
If you have received credit for a missed class, you can make up a class within one month; if you do not make up this class before one month you forfeit that class unless time is extended by special permission. Also, no refund will be given. Students can make up ONE class per month in classes that are offered outside of SAAD (see Sohaila on which classes you can attend). If the student wants to experience the challenge of classes in a level above their current level, they may do so with instructor approval only – students must request this by emailing or calling me.
: Soliciting, selling, or distributing flyers during class for other products/services is prohibited. Performing at outside events or private parties as a Sohaila Shining Star without prior permission is prohibited.
: No loose fitting wear or jeans. Appropriate dance pants, T-shirts, camisoles and hip scarves should be worn and may be purchased from the SohailaWear Line. Either jazz, ballet, socks or bare foot is suggested. You can order your shoes thru Discount Dance Supply
, I have found them to be the best value. When ordering your shoes either at the store, on the phone or on line, Please give them the name of the Studio:
Sohaila's Academy of Artistic Dance, or teacher/studio ID number to give to them:TP28456
: Street shoes are not permitted inside the dance area of the studio – help us keep the studio floor clean by kindly removing your shoes when you enter the studio. Place your personal items in an area where you can see it. Do not bring valuable items to the studio. The studio, its management or instructors are not responsible for lost or damaged personal property. No food or drinks. Drinks such as water is fine, please have it in a non breakable, spillable cup.
: If you arrive early and the prior class is in progress, either wait outside or come in quietly until class ends. No gum-chewing, eating or drinking (except water) in the studio. Please turn off your cell phone. If you arrive late, please enter quietly and take your place at the back of the room so as not to disturb the class in progress.
Policies are in force at the time of this revision. I appreciate everyone's cooperation in following these policies.
Glad to have you in class!!!
