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.
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.
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.
