Starshine Studios follows the Wasatch County School District schedule. Generally, if there is no school, then there are no classes at the studio, unless an extra practice is scheduled due to an upcoming performance or competition. Written notice will be sent home and posted in the studio if there is an additional practice scheduled. Monthly tuition is not adjusted due to holidays or district scheduled breaks because some months there are 3 classes, others have 5, most have 4; in addition to performances, parties, parades, and other events.
Students desiring to change or add additional classes will be allowed to do so provided that there is space in the desired class. Change/Add forms are available at the front desk to make sure that the desired change is processed appropriately and in a timely manner. Please submit the form to the front desk and an email confirmation will be sent to confirm the change and detail the new fee amount.
Starshine Studios operates as a positive, diverse, and supportive studio and all participants and parents are expected to behave in a way that reflects these traits. Students do not have to be best friends, but they must be respectful of themselves, the teachers and staff, and other students. Failure to demonstrate these values may result in the student being released from the program, without refund of paid tuition or fees.
Students are expected to attend their registered classes regularly. If there is an absence, no adjustment will be made to tuition. The space is reserved for the participant for the season. If your child is sick, please keep them home to reduce the risk of exposing others to illness. A make-up class may be available if there is a similar class offered, at the Director's discretion. It is also expected that students should arrive on time or early for their scheduled class prepared to participate. Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk and in the bathroom. Please encourage your student to wash hands and use hand sanitizer, as needed.
Starshine Studios aspires to find a balance between the classic appearance of performance arts classes with the desire for personal expression and consideration for the financial investment of specific attire. Students participate at a higher level when they are dressed for the activity that they are attending. Please review the Class Attire Notice for the specific class dress and shoe requirements. Always bring the designated dance shoes for any classes that require footwear. Please note that all participants must have hair neatly secured back from face, no jewelry, and clean hands and face. Personal hygiene is very important and helps keep classes a fun and hospitable opportunity for all participants. Please discuss this with your student to encourage them to maintain their own personal level of excellence.
Please encourage students to leave valuables, electronics, and jewelry at home. Also, remind them to check and make sure that they have collected all of their personal items, clothing, and shoes before leaving the studio. Make sure that all dance shoes, dance bags, and props have student's name clearly marked, so if lost item can be promptly returned. Students should bring a filled water bottle, with their name on it, to each class to maintain hydration. Sodas, juices, and sports drinks are not allowed in the studio.
