There are no refunds for missed classes. If the class is cancelled by the teacher, a makeup class will be assigned to students. If classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, public posts will be made on Facebook and on this website under the Snow Days and Make-Up Dates page. Classes are allotted 3 snow days per season without makeups. If any snow days occur thereafter, make up schedules will be posted on the website.
The make-up dates for cancelled classes will also be posted on that same page. It is the responsibility of both the parent and student to keep track of cancelled classes and make-up dates. Miss Sam will not contact students individually for class cancellations and make-up sessions.
Note- if Hornell schools are closed for a snow day, MSDC is automatically closed.
All students must have costumes to participate in the recital. A costume deposit of $50.00 per class is due every October 30th with the remaining balance due by March 30th.
Once you order a costume, you are obligated to pay for it in full. Since costumes are custom-made, they cannot be cancelled once ordered or home-sewn. They have to be ordered through the studio.
Costumes that need alterations will be the responsibility of the student. Your dancer will not be cleared to perform in the annual dance recital until your entire account balance is paid in full. This payment is due every May 31.
Parents are required to purchase recital tickets. The ticket money is then put towards tickets, banners and program printing as well as the school’s auditorium fees.
