Tuition Payment Schedule
Tuition is billed on a monthly basis on the first of the month. Tuition fees are due by the 7th of each month.
The HIVE has specified parking spots for our use and we need to ensure that we are in strict accordance to those spots. Please park in only the HIVE designated spots, according to the signage posted. If you have any questions, please ask any of our staff.
Drop Off and Pick Up
Please make sure your child is dropped off and picked up in a timely manner. Our classes are booked back-to-back, and we need to keep the "traffic" flowing.
Costumes are picked by the HIVE staff sometime in early Fall, and will be billed to you by late Fall. All costume orders and payments must be returned before we close for the Holiday break. We will be measuring your child during regular class times. Costumes are normally delivered in May.
We will send out an email blast to notify you of closings at least 1 hour before any scheduled class. Please make sure we have a current email on file. We will post on the Gallery section of our website at least one hour before the scheduled start of class.
Food and Drink
No food or drink (aside from water) in the dance studios. Please restrict your consumption of snacks to the waiting rooms. It is very difficult to keep the studios clean otherwise. No chewing gum please! Please remember to clean up after yourselves.
Children are always welcome at the studio when monitored by an adult. Please keep track of your little ones (we have had incidents of toilets being stuffed with paper towels, clothing being thrown out of windows, etc.).
Lost and Found
Please put your name on everything! Label shoes and clothing clearly so things do not get mixed up. We keep "found" items for approximately a month, after which time unclaimed items will be donated to Goodwill.
There are specific and different dress requirements for each class, so please refer to the list below to ensure you are properly attired.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no private dressing room,so we ask all dancers to arrive at the HIVE already properly dressed for each class. Hair must be up and fastened securely for each class!
