Missed Classes and Inclement Weather

Classes missed due to inclement weather, illness or personal vacations may be made up by attending a similar class. Speak to your teacher or the office for an appropriate class to attend.  We ask that all make-up classes are taken prior to January 31.  Please set up any make-up classes with the office.
If The Bradford School of Dance experiences mandatory closures due to government restrictions, classes will shift to an on-line format for the duration of the government mandate.

Costumes A $70 + H.S.T. costume deposit per class will be required from every student participating in the year end recital. This deposit is due November 1, 2023. Costume deposits are non-refundable.  Costume deposits are not the full payment required. The costume balance owing will vary by class.

Costume balances are an additional fee due on February 1, 2024.

We do our very best to select appropriate costumes based on the theme of the performance and pricing. The Bradford School of Dance Inc. does not dictate the price of our costumes. Costume makers, catalogues, seamstresses and shipping charges all affect the price of a costume.

Students are measured for their costumes in October and we allow for reasonable growth. These are not custom fit costumes.

Any costume alterations including, but not limited to, tightening or loosening of straps and taking a costume in, are the responsibility of the student/parent not The Bradford School of Dance Inc.

Anyone who registers for class after November 1 will experience a late costume ordering fee of $50. Late registrants are not guaranteed their costume for picture day or recital.
