STUDIO POLICIES

HOLIDAYS, CALENDAR, AND IMPORTANT DATES

We follow major holidays on the Cobb County School Calendar for closings. This includes Labor Day, Thanksgiving break, Holiday Break (Dec-Jan), and Spring Break. We do not close for Cobb's Fall Break (September), MLK day, President’s Day, Cobb's Winter Break (February) or early release days. Please review our studio calendar for a full list of closed dates. If you attend school outside of Cobb County, please let us know if your child will be missing class. They are welcome to make up their missed class in another class.

 

STAFF OFFICE HOURS

Our staff is available to answer any questions you may have during office hours. If you need to speak with your child’s teacher, and/or the Studio Owner, please call or email the front desk to set up an appointment. The Studio Owner, Heather Moffitt, will have posted office hours each week to meet with students and parents. In order provide top quality instruction and ensure that all students have their full class time, teachers do not have time to meet or answer questions in between classes. You may ask the front desk for assistance and/or reach us at info@integrity360dancecenter or 770-763-8525. You can also text us at 855-763-8525.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

We follow Cobb County’s decisions on inclement weather school closures. However, please use your own judgment when deciding to travel to the studio during severe weather. We will confirm our closing via email, social media posts, and text message (if you are opted in) to confirm our closing when inclement weather affects Integrity 360 Dance Center. All classes missed due to inclement weather may be made up in a similar class on our existing class schedule.

 

MAKE-UP CLASSES

If a dancer misses class due to illness or other personal reasons, they can make up the missed class in a similar class. Please see the front desk for a list of similar classes. There will be no discounts or refunds given for missed classes. There are no make-up classes for classes missed due to holiday closures, etc. All classes missed due to inclement weather may be made up at your convenience in a similar class. If the studio is forced to physically close due to COVID-19 exposure or state mandates, we will continue to offer class via ZOOM. There will be no refunds for classes that are transitioned online.

 

WITHDRAWAL POLICY

We require a 30-day written notice via email if you need to withdraw from Integrity 360 Dance Center. Please email info@integrity360dancecenter.com with your intent to terminate your enrollment at least 30 days prior to the date of discontinuation. You must receive a confirmation email from an Integrity 360 Dance Center staff member acknowledging receipt of the notice for the withdrawal to be finalized. Any verbal notification to an instructor or staff member will not suffice as proper withdrawal. After the 30-day notice, we will terminate your monthly installment, or, if a full year was paid, we will refund the remaining installments minus 10%. You will be responsible for payments until the written notice is received. This withdrawal policy remains in effect even if we have a shelter in place mandate from federal, state or local government. 

 

In the event of a shelter in place, classes will convert to virtual classes and instruction will continue. There may be an approximate one-week transition period from the date of the shelter in place order until virtual classes begin in order to allow us to implement our action plan. This brief time, if needed, will be treated as inclement weather days, meaning your dancer can choose a convenient make-up class from an appropriate class on our schedule. No refunds will be given for this week. Please call or email to sign up for your make-up class. Remember that a 30-day written notice will still be required for withdrawal.

ATTENDANCE

Promptness and regular attendance are important in each student's progress. Attendance is especially critical as dancers are learning their performance routines for the annual spring production. Excessive absences can result in the dancer not being prepared for the performance and can also adversely affect the entire class. Please see our inclement weather and makeup class policies for information specific to those situations.

 

PARENT/GUARDIAN DROP OFF AND PICKUP

Please do not drop-off your dancers more than 15 minutes prior to the start time of their class unless you have made special arrangements in advance with the front desk. Please pick-up your dancers within 15 minutes of the end of their class time. Excessive tardiness to pick up your dancer may result in additional fees unless special arrangements were made in advance. Integrity 360 Dance Center does not accept responsibility for children who leave the premises unattended. For safety reasons, students must remain inside the building when waiting for their rides. We will not allow students to wait in the parking lot area or outside the building.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY

Any student or parent posting negative comments on social media platforms will be subject to probation and possible dismissal from Integrity 360 Dance Center. As a student and representative of Integrity 360 Dance Center, dancers and their parents are expected to uphold a level of respect to the business, their peers, and themselves. The student and parents will be required to have a conference with the Studio Owner, and in some cases the instructor, to determine next steps.

 

Students and parents are expected to treat instructors, peers, and other students’ parents with utmost respect at all times. If any students or parents speak with another student or parent disrespectfully, send inappropriate text messages, or post inappropriate comments on social media, they will be subject to dismissal from the studio at the discretion of the Studio Owner. There is zero tolerance for bullying at Integrity 360 Dance Center.

 

CLASS LEVEL PLACEMENT

Students must meet age requirements for a class by September 1. Students wishing to enroll in a level outside of their age or level bracket must be evaluated for level placement. Parents should contact the office to schedule an evaluation prior to registration. Level placement is determined by Integrity 360 Dance Center faculty and all registrations will be reviewed and are subject to change if a student is enrolled in a class(es) that are not age or level appropriate
