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.

Studio Covid Protocol
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.

Studio Rules

  • The waiting room is not available to parents
  • Masks should be worn by all individuals age 2 and up except where an individual is unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition or disability
  • Stay home if you have a fever, feel sick or think you have been exposed to Covid-19
  • Notify us if your dancer has been exposed to Covid-19 or tests positive (protocol information will be updated once we receive the most up-to-date procedures)

Drop Off & Pick Up Procedure

  • Dancer should wait outside at the front door for a teacher and sanitize hands upon entering
  • If your dancer will need to change dance shoes, they will place their dance bags in a bin which will remain in the studio with them; street shoes will be placed in a cubby
  • Dancers in the back room will use the bathroom in that studio / dancers in the front studio will use the bathroom in the waiting room
  • Pick-up: dancers in the back studio will exit the waiting room doors / dancers in the front studio will exit out the studio’s doors

Keeping the studio clean is vital to keep our dancers and staff safe. Updates include:
* IWave Air Purification has been installed in our HVAC unit to clean the air and surfaces, effectively killing airborne bacteria and viruses.  Learn more 
* Daily cleaning of all surfaces

If the State and/or Town adds restrictions, the studio may need to make adjustments listed below.

All classes except technique and kicks, turns and leaps have recital dances that are performed in one show.  Dates and location coming soon! The estimated price per ticket is $30.


Payment & Medical Waiver 2021/2022

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.

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)
January 3-8 Remaining balance to be provided in December

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.


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.
