Reach for the Barres Terms & Conditions

In order to enroll your child in our program, you must agree to the following Terms & Conditions:

Please read through all of our Studio Policies in order to understand and agree to our terms and policies at REACH, before enrolling your child.  If these guidelines cannot be respected and/or followed by any family member or caregiver for any reason, we reserve the right to cancel enrollment and NO refunds will be given.

KINDNESS + RESPECT: Our goal is to foster a positive learning environment filled with creativity and camaraderie for both our students and parents. You and your child agree to treat all participants of Reach For The Barres Dance Studio with kindness and respect. No bullying of any kind, verbally, physically or otherwise will be tolerated.

SAFETY FIRST: The safety of your child and other children is our top priority. Our Faculty are all First Aid + CPR Certified. You acknowledge that your child has no physical, emotional, or social conditions that make it dangerous or unwise for your child to safely participate in our programs. No parents, friends, or siblings are allowed in the classroom at any time. This is for the benefit of your child. They will learn more if we have their complete attention. We kindly ask that parents do not enter the class room while in class sessions, unless permitted by the class instructor. (The only exception is our Mini & Me classes, of course.) No running or climbing/hanging on any indoor or outdoor furniture please. Running in the studio is dangerous for both your child and others around them so your child agrees not to run when participating in any of our programs.

COVID-19 POLICIES + PROCEDURES: I understand these policies will be enforced and followed until otherwise noted or updated, and agree to all COVID POLICIES + PROCEDURES policies upon enrolling my child.

MAKEUP POLICY: I understand because of the limited capacity and high demand NO MAKEUPS, CREDITS or REFUNDS will be given for dropped, missed or canceled classes, camps or events – even if I know we’re miss ahead of time. This includes in-studio, virtual, mobile/outdoor and/or private lessons.

REFUND POLICY:  I understand that REACH Studio tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE.
