Elaine’s Dance Studio

Policies & Information


Holiday dates are posted under the “Key Dates” tab. Holidays generally follow the local school schedules and notes will be given to your child prior to each holiday period. If you have specific questions about holiday schedule, please email.

Attendance /Missed Classes

Attendance is taken at each class. Good attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back the entire class. Please make every effort to have your child attend and be on time to every class.

If your dancer misses a class, we encourage a make up class. Please email Elaine and she will guide you with the appropriate make up class to take.


Elaine’s Dance Studio (EDS) does not carry medical insurance for its students. It is required that all dance students be covered by their own family insurance policy. If injury or illness does occur, it is understood that the student’s own policy is the only source for reimbursement.

It is understood the Elaine’s Dance Studio (EDS) reserves the right to use any photography and videotaping of a student’s performance or classes for purposes of advertising, promoting or publicizing the studio. All ownership, including copyright, shall belong to Elaine’s Dance Studio.
