We are a level based studio not by age. Our age brackets are a “recommendation” for where the student should be striving for. We have Placement Tests to set each student at which level they will be at for the upcoming semester. (There will be one free Placement Test at the beginning of each semester, if you cannot attend or enroll after that date you can either participate at the lowest level class or pay to take test.) Each test is comprised of a set of curriculum steps, from that list the tester will randomly choose steps in which the student must proper execute to move on to the next level. In the case that a student does not pass they will receive a list of the move(s) that they did not execute properly so they know what to work on during this semester to move forward. (We have chosen this format to be challenging for all students and for the safety of all students no matter their age. )
Starbeam Studios or any of the staff/ instructors are not liable for any injuries either minor or major. Dancing is a sport and there is (small) risk in any physical sport despite the carefulness of students, instructors, and/or owners.
We follow the School Schedule (Delta County 50j) for the semester. Late start days do not effect us however days that they completely cancel school because of bad wether we will also cancel classes. Make-up Classes will be offered to classes that got canceled due to weather. If there is every any doubt please feel free to call us!
We will take off all Holidays according to the Delta County 50j Calendar.
We do not always recognize the start and ending date of the semesters.
There is to be no street shoes on any of our dance floors at anytime! This is for the safety of our dancers, instructors, and our facility.
Starbeam Studios or Instructors are not liable for any lost or stolen items. Please check at the front desk for possible found items. If any found items are not claimed within the month they will be donated to charity or a family in need.
We will release an occasional evaluation to the students. This is not meant to be negative rather than make parents and students aware of what is holding them back from moving forward. Any questions please contact us or see Miss Kayln.
All students must fill out the registration form, pay (at least the first installment) tuition, and sign the waivers and consent forms before their first class or they will not be permitted to dance.
All Classes must have a minimum of 3 students per class for the class advertised to run. There are minor exceptions to this rule, but that is at the discretion of the Studio Owner(s). If a class does not fill you will be able to transfer to another class of your choice.
All classes have a capacity. Please speak to the studio directly for the capacity on your particular class. If the class/ workshop reaches capacity you will be placed on a waiting list in the order of interest and are welcome and encouraged to take your second choice and sign up for that class the following semester.
No Gum, Food, or Drink (other then Water) in the Movement Spaces for the safety of Students, Instructors, and our facility.
Students are required to attend all classes unless pre-approved by Miss Kayln
If a Student misses or is tardy more than 2 classes per session it may result in removal from the performance.
If a student arrives more then 5 minutes late to a class they will be marked as tardy and asked to sit and watch the remainder of the class for safety reasons for them and the other students.
If a student needs to be pulled from class early this must be discussed with the Instructor prior to the class time, by an adult.
Students, no matter age, will address Instructors and Starbeam Studio Staff by Mr. or Ms. This is to teach professionalism and respect for others.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to class so that you can be prepared and ready when the Instructor calls for your class.
No Student should be dropped off more then 15 minutes prior to class unless pre-arranged with Miss Kayln. This is for safety reasons, making sure Miss Kayln is prepared and ready for them, as well as we are a Arts Studio not a baby sitting program. (Although, we do understand busy schedules and rare times that this is needed, please inform Miss Kayln and she will try to assist you with your needs)
