What if my child doesn't want to continue?
Ages 5 and under, PIBA- you may drop with 30 days email notice to firstname.lastname@example.org. We do encourage everyone to try complete Sept-Dec or Jan-June so choreography for our Christmas and Year End shows is complete without missing dancers.
What forms of payment do you accept?
All class payments are processed through our Jackrabbit studio software. We accept a void cheque/mastercard/visa for payment methods and you will be prompted to enter this information when you register. You may choose to have your fees processed on either the 1st or the 20th of each month. You can also log into your dancer portal at anytime and change your payment method.
Are classes mandatory?
Unlimited Street and Club Dance Programs- This program includes one mandatory crew class per week where routines are cleaned. All other styles included in your registration are optional. This is to allow some flexibility in each dancers schedule. However the best value and best dancer development is obtained by attending the maximum number of classes!
How long are the classes?
Bambinos, 4/5yrs are all 30 min classes. (with the exception of the Chicken Noodle Soup Crew class 45min)
Can parents watch?
To minimize distractions we ask that parents drop dancers and leave. The instructor will invite parents in when they are ready. We leave this to our instructors discretion. We also frequently post class videos to our social media, so please watch and share!
How does the studio communicate with members?
We send out mass emails through our studio jackrabbit software- these sometimes go to spam or junk folders because they are high volume. Please ensure you find your registration confirmation email and mark it as safe so remaining emails end up in your inbox.
Is there financial assistance for dance?
YES! We have our awesome PIPA Pound It Parents Assoc that you can join and fundraise. The main fundraiser is an annual gala that the association hosts. Please view our Financial Assistance page for more info.
