If your child or someone in the household has Covid, please notify us and do not come to class. Please follow doctor recommendations or quarantine for at least 14 days before returning to class. Parents are welcome to wait in the lobby at Dance Exchange, but must wear a mask.

WHAT TO BRING: Dancers need to bring their own water and mask. Dancers should be in proper attire. Please see below for more details.

RETURNED CHECKS: There will be a $30 charge for returned checks. (This fee is based on MD State Law 3-512) Anyone having 2 or more checks returned for insufficient funds will be asked to pay using another method.

CLASS CANCELLATION: If an instructor ever has to cancel a class, there will be a make-up class scheduled.

REFUNDS: We have a no refund policy, however your child may make up the class. If we cancel a class due to teacher illness, we will arrange a make-up time. All make-up classes must be taken by the end of the Fall Session. If your child isn’t able to do another make-up or there’s some other issue, like illness or injury, we can offer a credit on your dance account toward future classes or merchandise from our online store.

Competition fees are non-refundable after competition registration is completed. If the event is cancelled, your fee will apply to the next competition or can be added as a credit to your dance account.

ATTENDANCE: During the Fall and Winter/Spring Sessions, attendance is important due to progression of the class and dance routines/choreography.

If your child normally attends class in person, but will be joining online for any reason, please give at least 24 hours notice before the class time so that Doncov Dance Company instructors can plan accordingly. We understand that sometimes families might have emergencies, but if the date is known ahead of time, please send us an email or call/text us.

MAKE UPS: Dancers may make up a class missed. The class must be for the same age unless approved by a Doncov Dance Company instructor. The class can be online or in person. If your child can’t make it to class, but can join online, they can do that instead of going to a make up class. Make up classes must be taken within the same session unless otherwise discussed.

DRESS CODE: Please wear clothes you can move around in comfortably. No jeans please! Hair needs to be up in some way and out of the dancer’s face. Ballet dancers should have their hair up in a bun. Tights and a leotard are optional, but highly recommended.

DANCE SHOES: Hip hop dancers should have clean sneakers or athletic shoes on. Ballet dancers should have ballet shoes on. Acro dancers should go barefoot. All other dance styles can wear jazz shoes, foot undies, or go barefoot.
