All small children will have a square between them so that if they leave their square they are still socially distanced.

  • Parents/Guardians will not be allowed to come into the studio to drop off or pick up their child, if they are not staying to watch the class in their child’s designated dance square. Miss Montana will stand outside with younger students for pick up to make sure they get to their car if they do not have a guardian watching the class. 

  • To account for limited class sizes due to COVID-19, all drop ins must register at least 2hrs before their class this year to save their spot in class. How do I register? Message us on Instagram, message us on Facebook or email movingpicturesdance@gmail.com and let us know what class you would like to do! You don’t need to receive a response back from us, assume your spot is saved unless you hear otherwise! 

  • If a class becomes full, it will be posted to our Facebook page. If a class becomes permanently full it will be posted on our schedule on the website.

  • We are an anti-bullying studio and are committed to keeping our studio family safe from bullying. All bullying cases will be addressed with a customized approach. We have the right to expel dancers from the studio for bullying as a last resort or for extreme cases. However, we will try to solve all conflicts within the studio.

  • Registered students are registered for the entire dance year. Registered students can drop a class after any month but must email us to officially drop out of the class to allow your space to be opened for other potential students. If a student stops attending classes and does not pay for the new month without explanation, Moving Pictures has the right to give their space in class to another student. Refunds will not be given if you drop out midway through the month.

Moving Pictures Dance Co will make the choice of how to make up class for each individual class. 

  • I understand that the studio has pre scheduled holidays. I understand that some months may have 3 classes while others may have 5. I understand registered students pay not per hour in the month but divided up into equal payments every month. I understand even with holidays registered students are getting a discounted rate compared to drop-ins.
