Policies and Procedures

REGISTRATION: You can start your registration by purchasing a class. You will then be emailed forms that need to be filled out for the start of class. You can either fill them out and bring them to class or fill them out when you get to a studio. If you are not ready to purchase a class yet, you can email doncovdancecompany@gmail.com or call/text 301-852-1001 for more information. The Winter/Spring schedule is out, and we have classes for 4 year olds to adults. We offer a FREE trial class for each class. If you come for a trial class, you will be asked to fill out our paperwork even if you end up not taking the class.

You can then pay for classes using this website or via cash, check, money order, Venmo, Cashapp, PayPal, or Zelle.

Classes for Winter/Spring 2022 run January 10 to June 5 or July 8 depending on the class.  We currently offer classes online and in person.

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

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 Winter/Spring 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 Winter/Spring Session, 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.

CONFERENCES: If you ever need to talk to someone from the company about your child or any other question or concern, please call or text (301) 852-1001 or email doncovdancecompany@gmail.com.
