Policies

Parent/Guardian/Student Acknowledgement, Authorization and Release
The Carroll County Dance Center expects every adult student and parent or guardian of a minor student to read and agree to the policies prior to enrolling (see registration form).  Your signed registration form is verification and confirmation that you agree to The Carroll County Dance Center policies; that you understand that the nature of dance instruction sometimes requires physical correction of the alignment of the student’s body; that the responsible party realizes there is always a risk of accident or injury inherent in any physical activity, including a dance program, and, in the event of injury, authorizes The Carroll County Dance Center to obtain emergency treatment on such adult student’s or minor student’s behalf; and that you further release The Carroll County Dance Center, its officers, directors and employees from all liabilities for injuries or property loss or damage arising out of participation in The Carroll County Dance Center’s programs.  Your signed registration form is verification and confirmation that you understand that Carroll County Dance Center retains the right to use any photography, video recordings, or any event or class for publicity or any other legitimate purpose.

Make-ups and Absences:
Missed classes must be made up if the student wishes to maintain the level achieved. Limitations placed on a student by a physician are respected, but all classes missed must be made up within one month of the absence. Injured students are expected to watch class. If a student is sick or injured, the student’s parent/guardian must call the school at 410-795-3255 to let us know that the student is ill or injured.

Class Schedule Changes, Snow Closings, News:
The Carroll County Dance Center and Ballet Conservatory reserves the right to adapt the schedule and teachers as deemed necessary. Please refer to our website for the most current schedule, and listing of full, modified or cancelled classes. Information regarding closings, inclement weather, or other matters can be found on our website, Facebook and answering machine.  We do not go by any specific school system for delays or closings.

There is a two-month minimum for all lessons. One-month notice from the first of the month is required to discontinue any classes. Withdrawal must be done at the school office and not with the teacher. Withdrawal must occur within the first 7 days of the month. We will not accept withdrawal notice after March 7, 2017. No refunds for withdrawals after April 1st. To withdraw from classes a parent or adult student must:
