Studio Policies, Student Code of Conduct, and Handbook

Dancers and dance families must adhere to the Patterson School of Dance Code of Conduct. Please review the Code of Conduct with your dancer periodically throughout the season.​


Patterson School of Dance does not carry medical insurance for their students. It is required that all dance students be covered by their own family insurance and if injury occurs it is understood that the student's own policy is your only source of reimbursement.


Holidays will generally follow area school schedules and include:

  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • Spring Break


Tuition is due on the 1st of the month. A $10.00 late fee will be charged on an account balance after the 10th of the month. Notices will not be sent unless the account is past due. There is a $35.00 fee for returned checks. There are no refunds for unattended class; however, the student may make up the class within the month of the missed class. Our billing is based on a 9 month season; holidays are included in the schedule breakdown. Also, recitals do not mark the end of the season. Recital dates are set based on the availability of the auditoriums.

Account Balance

All accounts must be paid in full by May 1st. If you are uncertain about your account please contact the front desk. All accounts must be paid in full before costumes will be released. Payments will be credited to the oldest charges first if there is a balance due. No refunds are given for registration, tuition, or costume deposits.

Costume balances are the  responsibility of the parent/guardian/student, regardless if they are in recital or not. Costumes cannot be canceled from the costume company once they are ordered. Please keep this in mind before you drop a class, or pay the costume deposit, which is your consent to order your child's costume. Costume deposits are $75.00 per costume.
