Encore “level” classes are for dancers in 1st grade and up. Dancers are placed in classes based on a combination of ability and age. Students may be asked to take additional classes or private lessons to accommodate level placement.
Monthly tuition is based on a 9.5-month dance semester with approximately four classes per month.
For your convenience, tuition is payable monthly. There is no extra charge for months with five lessons nor is there a reduction or refund for any classes missed or holidays.

Students enrolling late for the semester or students who miss more than 2 classes a month may be required to purchase and participate in additional private lessons to catch up with the progress of their classmates. Students may not miss the class prior to a performance. Students who miss the final class before a performance relinquish their position in the performance.
Encore and the Jewish Community Center observes Jewish holidays. We will be closed any day the building is closed. Make-up classes will be available throughout the week. It is the parent/student’s responsibility to arrange make-up lessons by notifying Maggie, telling the student and their classroom teacher (if applicable).
Competition Team Attendance
Competition Team members are allowed 1 absence per month, and must attend the rehearsal before a performance. Missing rehearsal will result in having to sit out a performance. Please remember, these are team sports. Team members are counting on you! Students who missed more than the allowed absences for 3 months will be asked to resign from the team and refunds will not be given. Any student who drops out of a competition less than 2 weeks before a competition will be charged a re-blocking fee of $50 per dance.
