Home Up   Policies


  • All classes follow an academic year (September to May) that is progressive in nature. A summer session is also offered.
  • For the benefit of all students, classes are closed to viewing. Open houses for parents are scheduled throughout the year.
  • Students should arrive and depart within five to ten minutes of class start and end times. We have limited changing room space, so please arrive prepared, if possible. (However, please do not wear your dance shoes outside the studio!)
  • PAA reserves the right to cancel or shorten the length of any class with insufficient enrollment (three students or less). In case of cancellation, please have an alternative class in mind.


  • Advancement to a higher level is determined by year-end placement and at the director's discretion.
  • Students remain in the same class and level for the entire year. Any changes must be approved by the director.
  • A written evaluation will be given annually to all students to keep them aware of their progress and recommended class placement.

Pricing & Payment

  • Tuition is non-refundable. In the case of accident, serious illness or injury. Requests for a medical credit must be made in writing and accompanied by a physican's note stating the inability to continue classes. The medical credit will be considered only from the date which it was reported to the PAA office (not the teacher). All credits are subject to a $10.00 administration fee.
  • Tuition Payments can be paid by check or money order (cash not accepted).  Our payment plan is available for all customers. The first installment is 50% of the total tuition (due by the first day of the semester) and the second is the balance, due mid-semester. Payment of the registration fee and tuition will guarantee your place in class.
  • Registration fees and costume costs are non-refundable under any circumstances.
  • There are no sibling or family discounts for dance and theater classes. Discounts for multiple hours of dance per student per week are built into our pricing structure.
  • Credit cannot be issued for missed classes.
