Parents are asked to please either remain in dedicated space during class times or leave the studio, so that the student can focus his/her entire attention on dance. No class watching is permitted. Parents Observation Weeks and Recital dates are listed HERE (link to Schedule/Calendar) or on the downloadable schedule. Download here (link to PDF schedule).
During Parent Observation Weeks family and friends are invited into the classroom to observe students’ progress throughout the year. With the exception of the scheduled Parent Observation Weeks, we kindly ask that family members wait in the designated area until the student is finished with class. The presence of “an audience” or multiple adults creates a distraction and takes attention away from the teacher’s instruction.
The School is not responsible for lost or stolen personal property. Please leave all valuables at home. Please label dancewear with student’s name.
Dance is a strenuous activity. The School suggests a complete physical prior to starting classes.
Students are not permitted to participate in a class after entering late without the permission of the instructor, but they are required to remain in the class not to lose any new material. The instructor will use his/her own judgment and clearly indicate when the student can join the class activities.
In order for your child’s absence to be eligible for a make-up class, it must be reported by email not later than 24 hrs before the class. While absences may occur for any number of reasons, we are only able to offer make-up classes for those absences due to illness, family emergency, or religious holidays. If your child is injured and will miss a prolonged series of classes, we ask that you provide us with an applicable doctor’s note. Please note that tuition will not be adjusted for those weeks missed unless the student withdraws. Absences should be reported 24hrs prior to the missed class in writing via email at studio@UltimateTangoKids.com . Students are urged to make up any classes that are missed by attending lower age class option.
Make up classes must be completed within a week after absence. Ask your child’s instructor for advice on make up classes.
For their safety, students should wear street clothes and shoes when entering and leaving Ultimate Tango premises. It is important to either change clothes or wear warm over-layer to prevent tendon and muscle pain and sickness.
Tuition is fully refundable (minus Registration Fee) within the Trail Month if the Instructors, Parents, or both determine that the students will not properly benefit from the program. After final placement (October 10th) tuition is no longer refundable except in the case of serious illness or injury with written verification from a physician. Ultimate Tango School of Dance does not refund registration fees.
Classes are contingent upon meeting required enrollment numbers. The Ultimate Tango, Kids division, may cancel any classes not meeting enrollment requirements.
Students may bring non-breakable water bottles to class. Food and/or other beverages are only allowed in designated snack areas only. Please clean up after yourself. Gum is not allowed on Ultimate Tango premises.

We communicate important school information and updates to our parents primarily via email so please make sure we have your correct email address.
Closings due to inclement weather or other emergencies are listed both on schedule as well as our website. In addition you will receive email notification not later than 3 hrs before the class.
If, after submitting registration forms, you are notified the class you selected is full, you may request to be placed on the waiting list for that class. If a spot becomes available, you will be contacted. If you enroll in another section, or any other class, the waiting list option will not be available to you.
