An official studio policy handout can be obtained from the office.

Attendance/ Tardiness

Attendance will be monitored.Dancers arriving 10 minutes late to any class will not be permitted to attend that particular class, no matter the reason. Warming up and stretching is a vital part of dance.  After the first 10 minutes, this part of the session has been missed and we can’t allow students to dance without warm up or stretching.  We understand that “things” may happen, but we will stick strongly to this rule, as tardiness tends to disrupt the class as well. Any dancer that is not allowed into class due to tardiness is more than welcome to make-up that particular class.

Student Drop Off

Students should arrive at least 10 minutes before class and be picked up within 10 minutes after class.  Any student not picked up after 10 minutes after the end of his/her class shall be assessed a late fee of $50 and $1 per minute after an hour late pickup. 

Parent Waiting Room

For liability purposes, parents are no longer allowed to sit in dance rooms.  Breaking Pointe Dance has provided a lounge for parents and guests as not to distracting the students during class.  Please keep this area clean.


No food, drinks or snacks may be brought into dance class.   All snacks shall be limited to be consumed in the parent waiting area.

Snow/Hurricane/Bad Weather

We will follow the Washington Parish School System decision on school closures.  We will never put your child in danger due to bad weather.  Classes may be made up by attending another class close to the same level.  Our tuition is decided with a certain number of bad weather days considered.  No refunds shall be given for days canceled due to circumstances beyond our control.

Make-Up Policy

Missed classes due to studio closures, illness and other reasons can be made up within one month of the missed class.  Dancers may attend a class of the same level to make up a class.   Classes cancelled due to situations beyond our control may get a scheduled make-up class at the owner’s discretion.

Dropping Classes

Any dancer that drops all classes must give a 30-day notice to drop. If a dancer is outside of the 30-day drop time he/she will still be charged the full month’s tuition. If a dancer chooses to re-enroll after dropping all classes there will be an additional re-registration fee of $35.
