How Does Placement Work?

The artistic faculty of Gainesville Dance Center places children, teens and adults in classes appropriate to each individual’s level of ability and strength. Class placement is determined by the age of the student and the number of years in training the student has acquired. Students are continuously monitored   moved to higher levels as the student’s progress permits.


Cancellation Of Classes?

Your space in the class will be held for you until we receive a 2-week written notification that you no longer need your space. You are responsible for the entire session that you registered for. Please contact the studio immediately if you are cancelling your spot in a class so we can notify a student on the waiting list! All classes are subject to change or cancellation if fewer than 4 are registered. 


Attendance Policy & Makeups?

Regular attendance is important to the progress of the entire class. Classmates should not be expected to help students who miss frequently to catch up with the rest of the class. We do not follow the Prince William County Public School schedule for cancellations/delays for inclement weather! Please call the studios for a recorded message regarding closings due to inclement weather by 1:00pm. There will be no credit or refunds given for unused or forfeited classes. Make up classes will only be offered in the events of power failure & inclement weather. There is also a (1) class makeup policy for vacation for our 6 - week summer session. Any classes missed for holiday or inclement weather must be made up during the same session.
