Student Placement and Teacher Substitutions
BYPC reserves the right to designate placement for students, require prerequisites and attendance to qualify for certain placements. BYPC also reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher for a regularly scheduled teacher who is absent.
Students withdrawing from a program within two weeks of registering may do so with no penalty (registration fee is nonrefundable). Students withdrawing from a program after a two week trial basis must provide our office with a written thirty day notice. Withdrawal notices are available in our main office. All auto debits from credit cards and checking accounts will stop after the one month period. Families paying an annual tuition will be refunded remaining tuition, after the one month notice period and minus the 2% discount. If you must withdraw from a class/lesson for a limited amount of time – your original time slot or class assignment can not be guaranteed. BYPC reserves the right to terminate services to any student without notice – in this case tuition may be refunded.
Students must adhere to dance, performance, and theatre dress codes. Failure to dress properly may result in students being asked to sit out of class. Students are not permitted to wear jeans or shoes worn on the street or outdoors to any dance class.
