Classes Begin Monday, September 13

Last year was another like no other!  We are so proud of all the dancers’ and teachers’ hard work and loved seeing the dancers shine on stage!  We’re looking forward to beginning a fun and exciting year, and want to welcome all returning and new students. Most of your favorite teachers will be returning, and we are happy to welcome Ciara Foley to our LJ Crew staff this year!

To help you plan for the coming months, we are sharing some frequently requested information on studio protocols & procedures, dress code, important dates, payments, and more.

Protocols & Procedures

The Lynn and Jen’s staff is committed to providing a safe and welcoming in-studio environment for all of our dancers. We will be following CDC, State, and Town recommended guidelines for dance schools.

We would like to thank everyone in advance for your patience, cooperation, and understanding as we work together to make this year an enjoyable and enriching experience for our students.  Studio protocols can be located here as we receive them.

Keeping the studio clean is vital to keep our dancers and staff safe. Updates include:

PAYMENT REMINDERS

Payment & Medical Waiver 2020

CLASS PAYMENTS are due the first class of each month.  Irish Step payments follow a different schedule.

Monthly: September due at registration, remaining payments October-June.  Payments are calculated by dividing the annual fee into 10 equal installments. Monthly payments are automatically withdrawn the first of each month; to set up alternative payment options, please contact us.

Semester/Annual: Please contact the office to set up semester or to pay the year in full.

Payments are always the same. If students miss a class due to illness, injury, or any other unexpected event, we welcome and encourage them to attend a make-up class or come to class and watch to keep up with dance vocabulary and recital choreography.

Irish Step: Payments due in 3 installments
September-December payment due at registration.  Remaining two payments automatically withdrawn on January and April 1st. Please contact the office to set up alternative payment options.

Late fee of $20.00 per month will be added to the outstanding balance on the account if payments are not received by the end of the payment week.

Bounced check fee is $30.00. After 2 bounced checks, payment by cash or bank check will be required.

Lesson Refunds/Payments will be given when written notice of withdrawal is received before November 1.  After November 1, payments are due through June whether or not the student withdraws from the class.

COSTUME PAYMENTS will be due in two installments:
First Payment automatically withdrawn  October 1-7; please contact us to set up alternative payment plan.  Remaining balance announced in December and will be automatically withdrawn January 3-8; please contact the office for alternative payment plan.

Due Date Payment
October 1-7 $60 PER COSTUME (e.g., 2 costumes X $60.00 = $120.00)

Costume Estimates – typical price range per costume:
Younger students: $60.00-$75.00 | Older students: $70.00-$90.00

Installments become non-refundable as of November 1, when the costumes are ordered.  Costumes are paid in installments for your convenience; however, placing an order constitutes full commitment. Costume tights must be purchased separately (brand and color to be specified) and shoes may need to be sprayed to match the costume.

THINGS TO KNOW

NUT FREE environment
For the safety of our students, the studio is a NUT FREE environment. Please do not bring snacks containing nuts.

Vacation and Snow Days
We typically follow the Arlington School vacation and holiday calendar. Official studio dates will be provided in the September bulletin.

If the Arlington School has a snow day or closes early, the studio will be closed. If school is not cancelled, but weather conditions are poor, there are 4 ways to check for studio closures:

  • Facebook page
  • Studio website
  • Call 781.643.7220 (A voicemail message will note if there is no class.)
  • Email from studio

Make-up classes will be available beginning in May for any classes missed due to holidays and snow days.

Absences – Illness & Injury
Please contact the studio to let us know if your student is going to miss class due to illness or injury. For injuries that require a long healing time, we recommend that the student come to watch the class. If a student is unable to perform in the recital, the studio reserves the right to borrow your costumes for a substitute dancer.
