General Information


ATTENDANCE: Attendance is critical to ensure a solid dance education and maintain proper level technique. When choosing to dance at Impulse Dance Center, I fully expect students to make their dance education a priority. It is difficult for both student and the rest of the class when there are absences. If you absolutely must miss a class, please call the studio number before class *(508) 653 - 2171*

MAKE-UP CLASSES: If you do miss a class, you have the option to make it up in any other class that is the same technique level, or the level below, of your choosing. Just call and let the studio know which class you will be attending as a make up. There are no refunds for missed class time.

CANCELLATIONS DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER: When weather conditions are not at their best, call (508) 653 - 2171, after 1:00 P.M. on weekdays and Sunday and after 8:00 A.M. on Saturday, where a recorded message will let you know ONLY if classes have been cancelled. If you hear the regular greeting, then classes are on! REMEMBER, IF NATICK SCHOOL IS CANCELLED, THIS DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MEAN THAT IMPULSE IS CLOSED - YOU HAVE TO CALL! If we do cancel because of inclement weather, there will not be a special make up class (unless there are more than 4 cancellations for any one class). Students, however, may make up the time in another class of their choosing if they so desire. **Again the number to call is **(508) 653 - 2171** Or check Impulse Fan Page on Facebook

CANCELLATIONS FOR ANY REASON: If a class needs to be cancelled for any reason, there will not be a special make up class unless there are more than 4 cancellations for any one class. Students, however, may make up the time in another class of their choosing if they so desire.

TUITION: Tuition is based on a complete program. While we encourage and in some cases require students to make up missed classes, there are no refunds or credits for missed classes. Total tuition can be paid in full with registration and take advantage of an 8% discount OR can be broken into monthly installments that are due the first of every month and the final payment must be made by June 1st. Checks should be made payable to: Impulse Dance Center and mailed to the studio at 5 Summer Street, Natick, MA 01760 or send with student the first week of every month.

WE DO NOT BILL. Unless prior arrangements have been made with the studio, payments after the 15th of each month will be subject to a late fee of $5.



DANCE CONCERT: There is a dance performance at the completion of the program to celebrate our many months of hard work. Although participation is not required to study dance throughout the year, I do encourage students to be part of the production. It gives students a chance to utilize the technique they have learned as well as gives them valuable orientation to the performance stage. Dress rehearsal and Concert date(s) are given well in advance and attendance is mandatory if you agree to be part of the Concert. You may not realize that when we choreograph a piece for a class, we do so very specifically for that class and the number of dancers in that class - Nothing is generic! Each dancer's place on stage is critical to the harmony and placement of fellow dancers. A costume deposit of $25 per class will be due December 1 with the balance due in February. Specific rules and requirements along with a commitment form will be given out in November. Please be sure to read everything completely before making a commitment to the concert.

"Peek Week"- It is mandatory for a parent to be at every class their dancer takes to receive Concert information. Costumes will be distributed and with the exception of Repertory Level classes MUST be received and inventoried by a parent. Costumes are special orders and can not be returned for refund. Once they are inventoried by a parent and released to a parent they are no longer the responsibility of Impulse Dance Center.

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE PROGRAM: If student withdraws from the program after December 1 but before its completion, there is a withdrawal fee the equivalent of one month tuition payment. If student withdraws after March 1, you are obligated to pay the entire balance due. Please note: If you have paid tuition in full, a refund for the balance will be made from the date of official withdrawal from the class and with the withdrawal fee, if applicable. If you have paid tuition in full and take multiple classes (individual or by family) a refund for the balance will be made from the date of official withdrawal from the class after readjusting tuition based on the number of classes still being taken and with the withdrawal free if applicable.

Students arrive on time for classes and in proper dance attire (See REQUIRED DRESS FOR CLASS) with hair secured off face. There is no gum allowed in class. Students must bring their own water to class. Food and beverages (other than water) is not allowed in the actual studio space. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at (508) 653 - 2171.


PARKING: : There is metered parking available on the street. You do not have to feed the meters after 5:30p.m. Weekdays, after 1:00p.m on Saturday and not at all on Sunday. Please DO NOT park in Debsan's parking lot before 4:00P.M. Monday through Saturday. You can park in the parking lot adjacent to the building after 3:30 P.M. on week days and any time on Saturdays for free. Parking can be a challenge; you should plan on getting here early.
