Studio Policy

Please be sure to read this information very carefully.

In order to enroll in a class at The Guelph Academy of Dance (TGAD), children must be 3 years of age by December 31st, 2018.

You will not be completely registered with a secure place in a class until TGAD has received a completed registration form and either

No one is permitted to “freeze” enrollment.  Enrollment into a dance class is for a full-year; therefore classes and payments may not be interrupted.

If it is your intention to withdraw from classes, please inform TGAD and follow the withdrawal policy.

In the unfortunate event of a returned cheque, a $25 administrative fee will be charged against the account.

Refunds are not issued for missed classes.  If there are more than one class per week offered in the child’s dance form and level, students are encouraged to attend a make up class.

Make up classes must be in the same dance form and level, no exceptions.

Parents of students enrolled in Pre Ballet 2 and higher classes will need to purchase tickets to the year-end recital.

Parents should be aware that there might be extra costs related to the end-of-year recital (example tights for jazz and tap costumes), however these costs will be kept at a minimum.

TGAD does not give out staff home phone numbers, if you would like to speak to the teacher, please call and I will be pass the message to them.

TGAD does not pass out class lists or provide information about any of the students.


The Guelph Academy of Dance follows the Upper Grand School Board’s decisions regarding inclement weather and particularly the City of Guelph schools.
