Studio Policies


A non-refundable registration fee is required seasonally at the time of registration.  This fee covers registration for one or multiple classes throughout the season.  Please see Registration Rates below for early and regular registration fee pricing.  

Late Season Intro Registration: Students joining a level 1 or beginning level class in January or later (excluding ProtoTykes) will be charged our Late Season Intro Registration of $50, a package which will include an "intro" private lesson.  The private lesson will help the beginner student catch up on material taught September-December and feel more confident joining the class mid-season.     



At TDF tuition fees are based on enrollment, not attendance and will be charged as a flat fee each month regardless of how many weeks fall in each month.  The school calendar has been calculated to average 4 classes per month. Students joining a class mid-month will be prorated. No refunds will be given for missed lessons.  



Tuition will be charged on the 1st of each month via auto draft from a credit card or bank account.  Credit card or bank draft information will be submitted upon registration through our secure, online payment processing system.  


Class Withdrawal Policy 

If a student chooses to discontinue any or all classes during the school year, a parent or guardian must  complete an electronic withdrawal form. This form is sent to the guardian once an email notification of the desired withdrawal is sent to and received by Truckee Dance Factory. Withdrawal forms may not be completed verbally with teachers or over the phone, only by an email notification and a completed electronic withdrawal form.  Withdrawal forms must be completed 1 month prior to the student's last day of class. In the event a withdrawal form is completed less than 1 month prior to the student's last class, tuition for 1 month will still be charged. No refunds will be given for costume fees.  Truckee Dance Factory reserves the right to terminate lessons to any students without notice. In such a case a refund for unused lessons will be given.  To request an withdrawal form, please email 


Snow Day Cancellations 

If the studio is forced to close due to extreme weather conditions, dancers are welcome to take any class as a makeup class, provided it coordinates with their age.


Recital Info and Fees

All recital info and fees will be posted on our website by January 1st.  



If a student is late to class the teacher may have them perform warm up exercises before joining the class or may ask them to sit out and watch.  If the student is absent too many times and begins to fall behind they may be moved into a lower class level.  


Class Make Up Policy 

The studio has recently made some changes to our class make-up policy and the new policy is as follows:

  • If the studio is closed or cancels a class, students will be welcome to attend a make-up class.      

  • If a student is absent for any reason they will be allowed one make-up class per calendar month.  

  • All make-up classes must be used within 30 days of the absence.  

  • All make-up classes must be in an age and level appropriate class.

  • Parents will need to call ahead to schedule the make up class with the office.

  • If the class you are wishing to do a make-up in is full, make-up students will be on a standby/first come first serve basis and will not be guaranteed a spot in that class.


Care of Students

The school is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students.  Young children are not to be left at the school for excessive time periods before or after their classes. 



Parents, legal guardians of minors, and students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on school property resulting from normal dance activity or any other activity conducted by the students before, during or after class time.
