Shop and Dress Code

The Royal Grace Academy of Dance Dress Code

A vital part of a young dancer’s growth is visual feedback from what they see in the mirror during class.

In order that the dancers get the most opportunity for growth from their time in the studio, it is imperative that they follow the dress code set forth below.

This also aids the instructors for each class, as it allows them to clearly see the dancers’ lines and placement which, in turn, allows the instructor to guide the dancers to the best of their ability.

Class Withdrawals and Refunds

Child and Teen classes are taught on a school year basis, with curriculum progressing appropriately from August through June.  Tuition is divided into monthly payments over the school year. Should a student have to discontinue any or all classes, the parent or guardian must notify Royal Grace Academy of Dance in writing before the start of the next month.

Royal Grace will not issue refunds for any missed classes nor early withdrawal. Dancers are encouraged to complete makeup classes in the event of an absence. Classes not meeting minimum enrollment may be combined or canceled. Refunds will only be provided if a class is canceled by Royal Grace.
