Rescheduling & Substitution 

ESOD reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regular teacher is ill or is otherwise unable to teach. ESOD reserves the right to reschedule or combine classes. 


At ESOD we go to great lengths to keep you informed and up to date. 

  • Newsletters, emails, Facebook, Instagram and lobby displays
We are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your dancer or our programs. 

Inclement Weather Policy 
In the event of inclement weather, a message will be left on the studio answering machine after 2pm regarding the status of classes and posted on the ESOD Facebook page as well as an email. Please note that we do not necessarily follow the school closings as roads are often cleared by the time studio classes begin. Any cancelled classes may be made up on your own time from our regular schedule of classes. 

Tuition Fees & Payments

Tuition rates are for the full season (August-June, including studio holidays,) not by the number of classes in the month. Tuition fees are paid monthly or annually. After registering, monthly tuition (August-June) must be paid by automatic bank account debit, automatic credit card payment or cash. Tuition will be drafted from your account (or charged to your c/c) on the 15th of each month (August-June). Recital costumes will be paid by automatic c/c payment. 

Withdrawal from Class(es) 

Any student who withdraws from ESOD must give written notice to the office prior to the next months billing date. If the costumer does not give written notice, they will be automatically billed for the next months tuition and billing will continue until written notice is given. The costumer will be financially responsible for hte total amount. The registration fee is non-refundable. 


Each June, we end our season with our fully-staged professional Recital. All classes participate in the Recital unless noted on the schedule. We encourage but do not required individual participation. The Recital fee is non-refundable. 

Costume Orders/Exchange 

Recital costumes will be paid by automatic bank account debit, automatic c/c payment or cash and are non-refundable. Costumes will not be ordered unless payment is received in full. 


Attendance is taken in each class. Good attendance is imperative as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class. ESOD cannot jeopardize its responsibilities to the rest of the class for one student.


Coming into the classroom to observe class is not allowed unless invited by the instructor. ESOD's lobby features monitors that display the studio. Each studio also has a viewing window.
