We will assign each dancer an alternate week class schedule based on the first letter of each dancer’s last name. For example, dancers will either attend the first, third, fifth, and seventh etc. class in person with
alternate weeks to attend virtually. All dancers will either be assigned an odd or even schedule even if they are taking all of their classes virtually. This will allow dancers to switch back and forth from an all virtual or hybrid schedule depending on if the family’s comfort level increases or decreases during the fall. In other words, no action by you is needed.

Gotta Dance’s season includes 36-40 class meetings including dress rehearsals and performances. We list class dates and closings on the web calendar under Current Students>Calendar. So in the event of absences, inclement weather cancellations, power outages, and/or state of emergencies, we issue no refunds. Dancers are welcome to make up a missed class anytime virtually throughout the season in a comparable class. Dancers do not need to schedule a makeup in advance and may simply attend the class and inform the dance educator of the makeup. February 1st last day to register for classes.

Thereafter, tuition is due on the 1st of every month beginning on September 1, 2020. Tuition may be paid by credit card or cash/check.

Before submitting a dance class registration, please double-check that you are registering for the correct/intended class. Beginning one week after initial registration, Gotta Dance will charge $5.00 for a switch/transfer from one class to another.  We charge this fee to your credit card on file the month that the switch/transfer occurs.

Credit Card Payments: We bill credit cards automatically on a monthly basis unless you send a prior notification through email to office@gotta-dance requesting to pay by check.

Past Due Accounts: There is a $10 late charge automatically applied to accounts paid after the 10th of the month.

Due to the effects of Covid, we are currently on a Hybrid model as that is what New Jersey public schools are following. If schools switch to fully virtual because COVID 19 we will be following their lead.

Workshop Requirements

Workshop is Gotta Dance’s highest level, and our dancers commit to Workshop with dance as their priority.  In this class, everyone should have the same commitment.  When a dancer does not, it affects everyone’s growth.  For the season 2020-2021, we are implementing a new policy.  Please review this carefully.  By registering for Workshop level class(es), you are committing to this policy.
