MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to provide a place where students can learn in a positive environment while building self-esteem and confidence.  We also strive to push our athletes to the highest potential they can achieve.  Our philosophy is simple, but focused.  We like to maintain excellence in training and build great relationships in every way that counts.

 

CLASS SESSIONS: Class sessions are 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 1 hour.  Class times depend on the class your child is in, how many children are participating in that class, and whether it is recreational or competitive.  Class schedules will be available upon registration.  Changes may be made to the schedule after registration because I make class schedules based upon interest from registration forms.  If changes are made, we will contact you with your new class times. 

PRIVATE CLASSES:  Private classes are 30 minutes and will only be made if time slots are available.  Private Sessions will be $25.00 per session. Semi-privates are $10.00 per session.   If your child is struggling with a skill or getting very close to a skill, you can request a private session occasionally throughout the year.  Staff will generally do these on Friday evenings or Saturday mornings.    

CLASS FEES: Class fees are due the first full week of every month.  We reserve the right to charge a late fee of $20.00 per week for accounts that are 30 days in arrears.  This will be strictly enforced.  If you choose to drop any classes, you must notify Nina or studio staff immediately.  Monthly billing will be applied to your account until we are notified.  There will be no refunds.  There will also be a $20.00 fee for all checks that are returned.       We also reserve the right to terminate class instruction for accounts that are in arrears.

REGISTRATION FEE: There is an annual registration fee of $25.00 per child with an additional $5.00 per child in each family.  The registration fee is due upon registration and is non-refundable. 

RECITAL FEE: There is also an annual recital fee of $25.00 per child with an additional $10.00 per child in each family.  The recital fee is due the last week of April and is non-refundable.  Your recital fee must be paid in full along with your account balance or your child will not be allowed to participate in the recital.  I highly encourage all children to participate in the recital!   

PAYMENTS:  Tuition is due the first full week of every month.  Late fees will be applied to accounts if you do not pay on time.

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS:  If you use a credit card or debit card to pay your bill, there will be a 5% fee added.

OPEN DOOR POLICY: I have an open door policy.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to speak with me anytime (without interfering with a class session).  If I’m teaching class when approached, I will suggest that I call you back when I’m done teaching or possibly suggest making an appointment to meet with you at a more appropriate time.  I can also be contacted through email at leggupproductions@gmail.com.  

NEWSLETTERS, CALENDARS, NOTICES:  We are still going paperless this year. Notes will be handed out occasionally. We will be posting everything to our website and sending out alerts via text messages.  It will be your responsibility to sign up for these and to stay informed.  Please see the ALERT info for directions on how to sign up for our text message system.   

RULES:

  • STAFF IS THE ONLY INDIVIDUALS TO OPEN/CLOSE THE BLINDS ON THE DOOR LEADING INTO THE INSTRUCTION AREA!
  • Students are only allowed on equipment during class time in which a trained staff member is present.
  • Gum, candy, food, and drinks are prohibited during class time.
  • Students are not permitted in or out of the studio during class sessions. We also ask that all parents enter the studio to pick up your children. 
  • All children must come to practice with a positive and respectful attitude towards staff members, children, and parents. Bullying, lying, profanity, or any other form of negative behavior will not be tolerated and will result in the removal from the class or left up to the discretion of Nina Legg, Studio Owner.  This also applies to all parents!!!!
  • Any physical damage done to the property of Legg Up Productions or one’s personal property while on the premises of Legg Up Productions will result in immediate exclusion from the studio with no refunds.
  • All spectators must keep noise to a minimum and refrain from speaking to students during class sessions.
  • We ask that you keep your children from touching our yearly pictures on the wall. These are very expensive and we are very proud of them.  This has been a major problem within the last year.  If I see your child touching the pictures, I will ask you to re-direct them.  If it continues to be a problem, I will charge a $10.00 fee to your account each time it is an issue.

 

DRESS CODE:  Proper dance attire must be worn at all times.  Leotards, gym shorts/pants, fitted shirts and tank tops are all acceptable.  Please do NOT wear jeans, pajamas, or t-shirts.  Jazz, ballet, and tap shoes are all appropriate for dance, this also includes dance paws.  Tumbling shoes may be worn during tumbling classes but are not required.  Please do NOT send your child to tumbling in socks or preschool ballet shoes.   Tennis shoes (clean) must be worn for cheerleading classes.  Hair must be pulled up and out of your face at all times.

SHOES:  Dance shoes can be purchased on Amazon.  We prefer the Bloch Pulse slip-on tan jazz shoe. This shoe can be worn for all dance classes except for tap.  For tap, we prefer the Bloch Sync Tap Shoe.  You can find these on Amazon as well.

COSTUMES: Each class will have a costume, leotard or GTM practice outfit for recital.  Each costume will be $65.00 to $85.00 (pricing depends on whether you are in a recreational or competitive class).  Each costume deposit of $40.00 is due by the 2nd week of October.  If your child is in multiple classes, you will owe $40.00 times the number of classes they are in.  The remaining balance is due the 2nd week of November.  Costumes will be posted with prices beside them in November.   If you do NOT pay your costume balance on time, a $25.00 per costume late fee will be added to your costume until it is paid in full.  (DOES NOT APPLY TO SUMMER CLASSES)

ADDITIONAL COSTUME FEES FOR COMPETITION STUDENTS: Additional fees may include earrings, necklaces, tights, rhinestones, wig-lets, bows, etc… 

VACATION DAYS: The studio will be closed for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and all other major holidays.  We will also have a brief Spring Break.  Please see the website calendar. 

CANCELLED CLASSES:  Classes will be cancelled if Wayne City Unit #100 closes due to bad weather, or if we feel road conditions are too dangerous for travel.  I would rather be safe than sorry.  If you are in doubt, please call before coming to class, check WFIW Radio, check our Facebook page, or check our website.  If weather becomes severe during class, we will dismiss classes early.

During the summer, we will only cancel classes if we have a personal emergency or if we are witnessing threatening weather due to storms.    

EMERGENCY:  In the event of a national emergency such as the Covid-19 Pandemic, we will have no choice but to cancel and/or close our doors until operation can resume.  This is out of our control.  We have to abide by the law.  All fees that were due up to and prior to a shut-down will be due.  Late fees will be applied to past due accounts.  Billing will be stopped until classes can resume.  Refunds will not be given for recital costumes that you purchased if we're not able to have a recital due to a national emergency.  Again, this is out of our control.

PICTURES:  We will have individual and group pictures by Kim Hinkle Photography in the Spring. Pictures will be scheduled for April. It is possible that competition cheer pictures will be in the fall.  Please watch the website and calendar for dates and information.   (DOES NOT APPLY TO SUMMER CLASSES) 

WATCH WEEK: Watch weeks will be held in November, February, and May (last week of classes).  Again, please watch the website for dates and information.  Anyone is invited to watch at visitor’s day but please keep in mind that space is limited.   Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this is something that we might have to alter in the future.  We reserve the right to change dates and months if need be at any time.

RECITAL:  The date for our dance recital is June 2nd - June 4th.  This will be held at the Granada in Mt. Vernon again this year.  We absolutely love their venue.  Please mark your calendars.  Recital is so much fun for the kids and parents.  We strongly encourage everyone to participate.  Dates and locations are subject to change if need be.   

RECITAL DVD:  We will have a professional videographer capture our recital.   Forms will be handed out 2 weeks prior to the recital.  They can be turned in at the studio or ordered the night of rehearsal.  Price of DVD's will be determined once the videographer is booked.  It generally depends on how long our show runs.

Legg Up WEAR:  We will order T-shirts, practice wear, and warm-ups throughout the year.  These are NOT mandatory, but many of the girls really like to have them.  Please make sure that you complete order forms and return when they are given.  I do NOT order extras.  You can also make or purchase your own Legg Up attire.
