Our annual registration fee is $25.00 per student account/ $35.00 per family account and must be paid in full prior to the commencement of classes. If a family has a split account (child lives in more than one home and more than one parent pays for the class) they will need a registration fee for EACH address/payment on file.
Class schedules are available online and at the studio. Moore Than Dance management reserves the right to change classes or teachers when necessary at any time throughout the year.
This closed group will be monitored to ensure all content is appropriate and relevant.
We also display important information, dates and studio details in our lobby and reception so please have a quick look when dropping off and picking up in case there is anything you may have missed. If you need any clarification, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Angela also has office hours when you can come in to discuss issues or suggestions.
The studio will generally adhere to the Fridley School District when it comes to closing for inclement weather. We encourage you to always use your best judgement when it comes to weather.
If the studio needs to close:
1. Closure will be posted on our website, Facebook page and MTD Families group page.
2. We will send an email to the families who will be affected and call them if possible.
No refunds are given for weather related closures; however students can make up the missed class by attending a similar class within a 2-week time frame. You must contact the front desk to inform them of any make-up classes.

Recital – Recital is a very special time where we get to share all that we have learned with our friends and family. Please look at the section on Recital in this handbook. You will receive a recital packet in April with more detailed information.
We expect our dance families to adhere to this code of conduct. It is important for the safety and well being of our students and studio.
Our Code of Conduct is designed to ensure the smooth, safe running of Moore Than Dance. As always, we are open to feedback, so if any of the requirements outlined below are unclear or concerning, please contact us to discuss further. Following a formal meeting, we do reserve the right to dismiss or take disciplinary action on any students or parents who breach our studio’s code of conduct.
In the rare case of a parent or student showing disrespect or defamation to any parent, staff member or student, a meeting will be called immediately and dismissal may be considered at the discretion of the Owner. Physical, mental, emotional or cyber bullying by parents, staff or students will not be tolerated and may result in dismissal from the studio.
Moore Than Dance takes no responsibility for any stolen or misplaced property on the studio premises and we encourage our families to avoid bringing valuable items into the studio whenever possible.
Moore Than Dance management reserves the right to change teachers or classes when necessary at any time throughout the year.
Choreography, costuming and studio policies remain the intellectual property of Moore Than Dance and may not be reproduced or sold by any students, parents or staff without permission of the Owner.
With the safety of our families a number one priority, Moore Than Dance is very serious about upholding Child Protection laws and policies within the studio as well as at public performances and in the online arena (website and social media.)
As part of your registration, you will have read and signed a media waiver allowing us to proudly use images and video footage of your student for advertising and promotional purposes.
Students may not be alone with a teacher at the studio. If a private lesson occurs when our front office team is not working, a parent MUST remain at the studio for the entire lesson.
We understand how inconvenient it can sometimes be to walk into and out of the studio with your child. Students are allowed to walk into the studio by themselves only if they are dropped off right at the door. However, we will not allow any student under the age of 10 to leave the building without their ride coming inside to pick them up.
Edit Account Contact Info. You may also contact our office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dress code items can be purchased year-round from the studio or from our website.
Please ensure ALL of your child’s clothes are clearly labeled – individual shoes, socks, jackets…you’ll be amazed at the amount of lost property we generate!
Further style-specific dress code requirements are as follows:
Students enrolled before April 1st are able to participate in recital. However, after the November costume order, an additional shipping fee will be added and costume availability is not guaranteed.
Recital Fees are due February 1st and are mandatory for all students who will be participating in recital. You may choose which recital level, Bronze, Silver or Gold that you would like to purchase. Recital package details will be emailed to families in our recital packet or on the HUB.
Your child’s attendance in class is very important to their peers, their learning and our teaching staff. As a member of the team, it is a commitment for you to ensure your child attends their classes on time each week and attends all lessons planned for them. Not only do absences impact the performances we create, it also impacts the social and confidence-building principals we work hard to foster in each age group.
If you know your child will be absent due to holidays/vacations, commitments or school trips, please let us know ahead of time so the class impact is minimal. If your child is too unwell to attend class, we ask that you inform our front desk staff as soon as you can so they can let the teachers know and preparations can be made to catch up on any missed work. Please send an email to the studio at email@example.com. Students who miss class due to illness are able to make up classes in a similar class/style within 2 weeks of the absence.
