Frequently Asked Questions

How many students are in each class?

For Ages 3 to 7 (Little Steps through Primary), we accept a maximum of 12 students per class. For Ages 8 and up (Grade 1 to Advanced) we accept a maximum of 20 students per class.

What is the ratio of instructors to students?

Each class has one certified instructor and one assistant.

What qualifications do your instructors have? Will teenagers be teaching my child?

All of our instructors are over the age of 18, and have successfully completed the B.A.T.D. (British Association of Teachers of Dance) Associate’s Exam in their designated dance style (where applicable). Many of our instructors are former competitive dancers with 10 or more years of dance experience.

Do the dancers put on a show for their parents?

Yes! Each year in June, we hold our annual year-end recital at the Canadian Museum of History (Civilization). The show features all of our recreational dancers, many of our competitive dancers and several guest performers as well! Little Steps dancers also put on a mini ‘open house’ held at the studio during the last class of each session, where parents can sit in and watch.

What is a costume deposit?

The $30 costume deposit is like a down payment. This is paid up front when registering for the recital term (Term 2). Recital costumes will be finalized and billed at the end of May. We try our best to keep costumes within the $30 range, however this is not always possible. In some cases, there may be a small additional balance owing for your costume. The costume is of course yours to keep.

What happens if I don't like my class? What is the refund policy?

Registration and Course fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

In the event of illness or injury, course credits will be given with receipt of a doctor’s note.

In the event that a dancer feels their course is not a good fit for them, we will be happy to switch the dancer to another course of equal value at absolutely no cost. If the dancer chooses to withdraw completely, tuition fees will be credited to your account. Credits do not expire and can be used toward any future classes.

A $50.00 cancellation fee (per course) will be applied to ALL withdrawals regardless of the reason.

All withdrawals must be submitted in writing via email. No course credits will be applied without this notification. Credits will be calculated based on the date we receive this withdrawal notification.

Credit is not given for missed lessons or for holidays.

Any withdrawals after April 1st remain subject to all recital fees, including costumes.

Please see our Registration Resources page for all information regarding tuition, payment options and cancellation policies.
