Serving West Georgia since 2001!
We offer a progressive program for ages 3-adult. Classes are divided by grade and ability. DAW staff is happy to assist in choosing a path that will best suit your child's needs and allow for him or her to reach their highest dance potential. The experience gained here at DAW may differ from experience gained at other dance studios. If your child is placed in a level in the middle of our season, or has come from another studio, we may feel the need to move him or her to a different level in order for them to receive the best dance experience possible. For some classes, levels may be combined. We reserve the right to cancel classes with less than 5 students and change class instructors. In the case of class cancellations, we will do our best to transfer students to a similar class. DAW does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.
All students must adhere to the studio dress code and should wear a cover-up when entering and exiting the building. Students should never wear their dance shoes outside.
Enrollment in auto pay is required and all families are required to have a valid credit card on file. Registration fee, costume fee(s), monthly tuition and performance fee will be automatically debited.
The Registration Fee is $60 and is charged upon enrollment. Registration fees are non-refundable - this policy is strictly enforced.
Tuition will be automatically debited using the card on file on the 1st business day of each month and is considered late if it is not paid by the 10th. On the 11th day of each month a late fee of $25 will be applied to any account that reflects an outstanding or past due balance. Tuition will remain the same regardless of pre-scheduled studio closings or holidays, unless specifically stated otherwise for the first and last month of the season. Tuition payments are non-refundable. Tuition will remain the same regardless of the number of weeks in the month. If your account shows any balance greater than $0.00, on any given month, this amount will be auto debited on the 1st of the month. If your account shows a credit your account will not be auto debited.
Costume Fees - applicable for the school year season August 21, 2023-May 31, 2024
Costume fees are $80 per class and are collected upon enrollment. Costume Fees are non-refundable for any reason. If your dancer withdraws from his or her classes prior to costumes being ordered you agree to forfeit your costume and costume fee. Costumes do not include the price of tights or shoes, which will be required for some classes. Regarding size, fit, and alterations: We will measure all students prior to ordering costumes. We take the following measurements - chest, waist, hips, girth, and inseam. When choosing sizes for our students, we refer to a specific sizing guide, provided by costume companies. We leave room for growth when choosing sizes. It is important to realize that costumes are not tailored made to fit the needs of each student and from time to time alterations will need to be made. Alterations and any cost associated with alterations are the responsibility of of the parent.
Performance Fee - applicable for the school year season August 21, 2023-May 31, 2024
The performance fee is $100 per student and will be automatically debited February 15th. Performance Fees are non-refundable for any reason. The Performance Fee includes dancer's stage time, links to recital videos, a memory program, and a trophy, and other recital related expenses.
Students should not be dropped off or picked up any longer than 5 minutes before or after class. Dropping your child off too early or picking him/her up later than the 5-minute allowance will result in additional tuition costs of $1 per minute.
We are happy to offer areas for parents to observe their child's classes from time to time; however, weekly observation is only allowed for Twirl & Tap and Twirl & Groove classes. Parent Watch Weeks will be scheduled, sporadically throughout the season, for K-12th grade classes. Parents / guardians of new students will be allowed to observe their child's first two weeks of classes. Parents should not address instructors between classes or during class time.
DAW students are expected to act kindly to their classmates and instructors. If a student exhibits rude or disrespectful behavior, he / she will be asked to sit out or leave the room, and the parent will be notified. If poor behavior becomes a recurring issue, DAW reserves the right to dismiss the student from the program. In this case, any tuition or fee previously paid will be forfeited.
If you choose to withdraw during the active season, notification via email must be received by the 15th of the month to prevent your account from being charged tuition for the following month. Any dancer on the competition team will be responsible for all fees outlined in their contract for the remainder of the season. Any previously collected tuition or fees, including costume fee(s) and the performance fee are non-refundable. If a dancer withdraws prior to the distribution of costumes he / she forfeits their costume and related fee(s).
