How do I register for classes?
Start by visiting our SCHEDULE page and decide which class is best for you. Once you have selected a class, stop in to the studio to fill out a Student Registration Form and pay for your class.
What type of payment do you accept?
We accept cash or checks.
Where do I purchase dance attire and shoes?
Duck River Dance now has a fully stocked pro-shop with leotards, tights, skirts, shorts, practice attire, water bottles, resistance bands, toe pads, books, gifts and more!. We can also order ballet, tap, jazz, character and lyrical shoes for you.
Please visit Sprout Childrens Shop on the Manchester square for shoes. Also, The Dance Store in Murfreesboro.
What if a class gets cancelled due to severe weather?
The DRD severe weather policy is to follow the Manchester City Schools closures.
If City Schools are closed due to weather, DRD will close due to weather.
Classes cancelled due to weather will be offered make-up classes, if available, but students will not be prorated.
What if a class gets cancelled due to instructor illness?
We will make every effort to have another instructor or student teacher cover a class when an instructor is sick. If no replacement instructor can be arranged and the class must be cancelled, dancers will be offered a make-up class. If it is not possible to schedule a make-up class then dancers will receive a credit for the missed class.
The class I want is full. What do I do?
When a student wants to registrer for a class that is full we will add them to a wait list. The wait list will be on a first come, first serve basis. You will be notified if a space opens in your desired class.
What if I miss a class?
If you miss a class for any reason, you are welcome to attend any class of equal skill level to make-up, with instructor approval. DRD does not credit for a student missed class.
If I miss several weeks of classes, do I still owe tuition?
Once you are registered for classes you are responsible for payment, whether you attend or not. However, if you know of and inform us of an extended leave (pregnancy, travel, etc.) we can place you on a "hold" which will secure your place in the class until you return, without payment being due during your leave. If you do not give DRD prior warning of your leave, you will be responsible for the tuition.
Will I receive a refund if I register for classes and then have to drop?
Our registration fee is non-refundable. But, it is good for one dance season. If you have to drop, the reg fee will still hold your place in class, should you wish to return later in the same dance season. Tuition is also non-refundable, but you are welcome to take make-up classes. See above.
If I register and pay for a master class/workshop/camp then have to cancel, can I receive a refund?
Unless the event is listed as "non-refundable", you will receive a refund less a 10% processing fee within 10 working day.
