Medical Situations - In the case of a medical injury which prevents a student from dancing and exists for 30 days or more, a credit will be issued toward the next semester under the following conditions: 1) a letter must be presented from a doctor stating the medical injury and the number of days a dancer is unable to participate in class; 2) a credit, determined by the number of days as indicated by the doctor and 3) dancers, if physically unable to participate in class, must continue to attend and observe their classes so they do not fall behind in the curriculum. . In order to return and participate in class you must provide a doctor’s note that you have been cleared to return to normal dance activity.

Photography - Photographs of Students may be taken occasionally for advertising. These photographs may be used in our promotional material, social media or website and are for our use only. Please inform the office if you do not want your or your child’s image used.

Lost Items - The studio is not responsible for lost items. Please label all belongings.  Do not leave valuable items in the dressing area. Items of value may be brought into the classroom dance studio while in class. As a courtesy, a lost and found box can be found in the studio’s dressing area. At the end of each semester we will donate any unclaimed items to a charitable organization.

Inclement Weather - The safety of our students, teachers and parents are of utmost concern. If inclement weather does occur (snow, ice, or dangerously cold temperatures), we may choose to cancel classes. Generally, we follow District 211 weather closures. Sometimes, however, the weather and roads may clear in time for our afternoon classes. We will send out a email to the studio and also post on our social media sites. If you are unsure please feel free to call the studio or email info@thedanceloftil.com. Classes missed because of weather closures may be made up in a similar class according to our make-up policy. Classes will not be rescheduled and refunds cannot be offered.


Please be sure the studio has your current email address on file and read all emails from the studio for important updates.
