RDA Policies

Class policies

Dancers should wait quietly for their classes to begin in the hallway. They may not enter the sanctuary, Studio D, the UMC office or kitchen. Snacks are allowed in the hallway but only water may be taken into the studios. Please leave the UMC space as clean as you found it; students are responsible for throwing out any trash they bring into the space and cleaning up any messes.

Regular attendance in class is important. Dancers arriving more than 15 minutes late to class will be allowed to join class at the discretion of the teacher. If a student will be missing class, they (or a parent/guardian) must notify the Directors. Dancers are encouraged to make-up missed classes.

In the case of individual cancelled classes, dancers will be notified via email. If a class is cancelled within two hours of the start time, dancers will be notified by phone call or email. Weather related cancellations will also be posted on social media. Classes cancelled until further notice by RDA at any point during the term are subject to a tuition credit or refund. Classes missed because of student leave due a documented medical reason are subject to a tuition credit or refund. No tuition refunds will be processed due to an inclement weather closing or other temporary reasons.

General requirements for all classes are as follows:
Hair off the neck and face, and cleanly secured
Leotard or form fitting top
Form fitting dance shorts / leggings Additional dress code information may be provided by teaching faculty.

RDA administration and faculty will place each student in the level(s) appropriate for their age and experience. Registration is dependent upon faculty and administration approval.

Dancers are responsible for their personal belongings and RDA is not responsible for anything left behind. There will be a Lost & Found bin located in the hallway. Items not claimed after 2 weeks are subject to being donated and/or discarded.

Payment policies

Payment must be made in full by the second week of each term, or a payment plan must be established, in order to secure a dancer's space.

Credit card payments are accepted in order to make RDA more convenient for you. Each credit card payment will be charged a 2% transaction fee.
All credit card payments are processed by PCI compliance company, Braintree. RDA does not store any credit card information in our database.
