School Year

Our school year officially begins Saturday, August 5th, 2023. It ends on Saturday, June 22nd, 2024.


The school will be closed certain holidays throughout the year. The following is a tentative schedule of holidays we will be closed:

December 2023
Christmas Holiday - Saturday, December 23rd to Friday, January 5th

March 2024
Easter Holiday - Friday, March 29th and Sunday, March 31st

May 2024
Memorial Day Holiday - Monday, May 27th

Class Attendance

Students shall be punctual to all classes. If late more than 15 minutes, the teacher has the right to not accept the student in class. Coming in the classroom while class is being conducted disrupts the Teacher. Please be considerate and try to be on time. If classroom doors are locked, please report to the front desk and someone will take the student to class.

Make Up Classes

We encourage students to attend their regularly scheduled classes, however, we also understand that emergencies do occur and they may miss some classes. All missed classes can be made up within 30 days from the day of absence.

NO CREDITS/NOR REFUNDS will be issued for any missed classes.

Holidays are not made up. We do not charge extra when the month has five classes. One compensates the other.

Picking Up Your Child

For the safety of the student, parents must personally come in the dance studio to pick them up. No student will be allowed to wait outside or out of the studio to a car honking outside. Students waiting to be picked up may wait in the hallway.

Parents are welcomed to wait in the lobby area for the students to finish class. Please do not go in the hallways as it distracts the students taking class. You may watch the class through the monitor in the lobby area.

Students must be picked up no later than 10 minutes after class is finished. Just Dance It! is not responsible for any student left in the premises for more than 10 minutes after their class is finished.

Student Dismissal

Just Dance It! reserves the right to dismiss a student for insubordination, missing scheduled rehearsals, being constantly late to class, or late with payments. Teachers may take students out of class if they are not properly dressed, hair is not properly done, or are being disruptive in class.


Any student participating in a Just Dance It! class and/or event takes certain incumbent risks. These include but are not limited to sprains, pulled muscle and broken bones. Participation in class and/or events indicate the acceptance of these risks by attendees and their parents and/or guardians. Just Dance It! assumes no responsibility for personal injury or property loss at the dance studios or any of its events.

Monthly Tuition

Monthly tuition is due the first day of the month and must be paid no later than on the student’s first scheduled class of the month, regardless whether the student attends class or not.

Tuition payments not made by the 8th of the month, will be assessed a $20.00 late fee. This late fee penalty will also apply to competition fees ($25.00) and recital fees.

Just Dance It! does not accept checks. We accept credit cards, debit cards and cash.

Students will not be allowed to participate in class if tuition payment is late (after the 8th of the month).

Class Rehearsals/Attendance

We take our recitals very seriously and try to prepare a performance that will be a pleasant and unforgettable experience for the students as well as parents. You want your child to do his/her best and in order to do so, she/he needs to attend class and not miss classes unnecessarily. Please try to schedule family vacations after the dates of the shows so your child may attend all rehearsals conducted in class before the performance. Students who have not attended class during the month of the performance, or who have not paid tuition for the month of the performance will not be allowed to participate.

Recital Program Book

Each year we want to have a bigger and better program for the recital with your child’s picture in it. Without help from the parents this would not be possible.

We will have meetings with parents who wish to get involved in selling ads for this year’s recital program book. Parents may also volunteer to coordinate their child’s class picture to be in the book and can also purchase a page or section of a page for their child's picture.

We take pride in the quality of our program books and this will be a precious memory to keep for a lifetime.Prices for ads will be as follow:

- Full Color Page - $300

- Half Page - $200

- Quarter Page - $150

NOTE: Deadline to purchase ads will be Saturday, May 18th, 2024. All ads will be paid in CASH unless it is a business ad which can be paid with a business check. All business ads will have a business card or logo on the ad.

We always count on mothers to help backstage and will be forever grateful to those who volunteer. Sorry, no Dads backstage.Being a stagemother, however, has certain responsibilities. They are as follow:

- Attend dress rehearsal and stagemother’s meetings. (mandatory)

- Familiarize yourself with the students (class ) under your care.

- Report to venue at least one (1) hour before the show.

- Keep students under control.

- Help students when they need to change costumes.

Competition Team

We encourage students to audition for the competition team. Students are picked based on technique, stage presence, and very importantly physical appearance.

Team members represent the school and as such, we expect them to look their best during the regular school year and in any event where they perform. This includes wearing the appropriate dance attire when attending class as well as keeping their hair neat, properly brushed and properly done.

While in our school, earring are only to be worn in the lower earlobe, and only one at a time.

Perfect attendance is expected of the Competition Team and there will be penalties to be paid for those team members absent without a valid excuse. Only cases of an extreme emergency nature will be considered as a valid excuse. Team members are required to take certain amount of classes on a weekly basis.
