Policies & Prices
Studio Dance Centre’s policies are summarized on this page.
SDC’s dance season begins August 14th and ends May 26th. Summer camps and classes are offered in June and July. SDC will be closed on the following dates during the 2017-2018 season:

- December 20th – January 2nd

Proper attire and shoes are required for all dancers at SDC. The dress code supports our mission to provide high-quality instruction; it allows more freedom of movement, ensures safety in the studio, and instructors are better able to correct alignment and muscle use. The dress code allows dancers to focus on learning and having fun! Please know that dancers who do not follow the dress code may be asked to observe class. Click this link to view our 2017-2018 Dress Code as a PDF, or stop by the front desk for a paper copy.
For all classes: no bare legs (no shorts) or bare midriffs; no extra jewelry (small earrings only); no fitness trackers; no hair ornaments; no skirts; no tutus, costumes, or dress-up wear. Dance pants or shorts may be permitted in tap, jazz, modern, or hip hop at the discretion of the instructor.
Leotards and tights are meant to be form-fitting and easy to dance in—please no underwear or sports bras. Nude dance undergarments are permitted and may be worn for classes or performances.
Dancers must wear a cover-up when coming to or from dance class. Dance shoes should be carried in a dance bag and never worn outside, as the outside wear-and-tear could damage our floors and your shoes.

All registrations must be completed in-person at SDC. First and last month’s tuition are due at the time of enrollment, along with the seasonal registration fee.
Although SDC will follow Frisco ISD for most inclement weather closings, there may be days where the weather clears or gets worse and we will make a decision based on local forecasts and other business closings. Updates to you regarding bad weather days may be made via our website, voicemail recording, email, and/or text.
Tuition and Registration Fees
These fees are non-refundable and help defray the cost of studio administration, management, instruction, and insurance. A $45 registration fee is required per dancer. Each additional sibling is $25. Tuition is based on a 35-week season, and may be paid in monthly installments, by semester, or by year.
