Policies

Attire

For our group classes and private lessons at the studio, choose clothes that are comfortable.  We do not have a dress code.  Some arrive directly from work and are dressed in corporate casual; some arrive from the gym and are dressed in sweats.  Wear what makes you feel comfortable.  However, as you learn more about dance you will find that dressing the part will inspire your dancing.

Shoes

Ballroom dance shoes are unique in that they have a suede sole; they cannot be worn outside and must be brushed from time to time.  Some shoes stores claim to have ballroom shoes but instead sell character shoes which have a leather bottom and are more restrictive.  Ballroom shoes offer a wide range of motion and allow the foot to feel the floor.  Social Graces promotes Showtime dance shoes.  Catalogs can be obtained in the studio from your instructor.  These shoes can be a bit pricier but they are well made.  If you order from Showtime and note that you are a member of studio number 0255, they will provide you with a free shoe brush.

Cancellation

• You may cancel your appointment without charge any time before the close of business on the business day preceding your appointment.

• Same day cancellations will be charged 50% of the scheduled service price.

• If you do not call to cancel your appointment or do not show up for your scheduled appointment, you will be charged full price for the scheduled service.

If you feel that a lesson might be missed but would like to reserve a time slot, just ask your instructor for a Tentative time.  This tells your instructor that if someone else wants the time slot, to call you and confirm the lesson.  We hope that all students value the time of our wonderful, well qualified staff and provide them with timely schedule changes as they arise.
