BSG Program Policies

Registration 

All students must be registered online for classes before participating.  A minimum of 5 students must be registered for classes to run. 

Tuition

Tuition is due at the end of the first week of classes for each session.  We have a Fall, Spring and Summer sessions each year.  Payments can be made at the time of online registration via credit card, or you may mail your payment to P.O. Box 767, Reisterstown, MD 21136.  All tuition payments are non-refundable.  Please make all checks and money orders payable to RRC-Ballet.  All returned checks will be assessed a $25 fee. 

A tuition discount is offered to our students taking multiple classes, as well as our families with multiple students enrolled.  This will be calculated at the time of online registration.   

Tuition Discounts

  • $15 off total tuition for 2 children enrolled 
  • $40 off total tuition for 3 children enrolled -OR- $40 off total tuition for 1 student taking 4 classes
  • $75 off total tuition for 4 children or more -OR- $75 off total tuition for 1 student taking 5 or more classes
  • One discount per family. 

Calendar

We follow the Baltimore County Public School (BCPS) system calendar.  This may or may not affect your child’s class(es).  In the event of inclement weather, or if Baltimore County Public Schools have an unscheduled early close, we will not hold classes that evening.  There will be no make-up classes in these two cases.   To find out if classes are cancelled, check your email, or call 410-215-5458.  You can also check our Facebook or Instagram pages for updates.

Please note that dates are subject to change based upon facility availability and weather. We will do our best to offer make up classes for cancellations due to a facility closure. 

Class Placement

Placement is based on your dancer’s age or grade level.  Please be aware students will remain in the  class(es) that they are enrolled in at the beginning of the dance year for the entire year. 

Attendance

We strongly encourage regular attendance to dance class. In the Spring session, we start working on recital dances.  If students miss excessively without proper notice, they will be left out of recital choreography.  Please note that if a dancer is more than 10 minutes late, they will not be able to participate for safety of the dancer. 

Classroom

Parents are asked to wait outside of the classroom during their dancer’s class time. A designated waiting area is available just outside the studio. We do not allow observation on a regular basis to allow our teachers and students focused dance education and instruction. We do offer one visitor week per session where families and friends can come see our dancers in action.  These dates will be announced when the dance sessions begin. 

We ask that dancers arrive promptly to class, dressed and ready to move. Arriving a few minutes early to get shoes on and use the restroom will ensure your dancers will receive the most out of their classes.  Dance classroom etiquette will be taught and enforced with our students.   

Dancers must be picked up on time at the end of their class(es). Instructors are preparing to begin their next class, or closing the classroom for the evening. 

Cell phone use by students during class is prohibited unless there is an emergency. 

To ensure that we properly answer your questions, please email us at balletschoolglyndon@gmail.com.  We would love to address your questions in person, but that is not always possible with minimal time between classes.

BSG Dress Code

 

 

Dancers must be dressed properly for class.  This is for dancer safety and allows the instructors to see proper movement execution.   Our dress code is also part of the art and discipline of dance education. Please keep all dangling and play jewelry at home to avoid breaking and loosing items.  

Hair

Should be pulled off of the dancers face and neck and secured in either a bun or pony tail.  If your dancer has short hair, please have them wear a headband or barrettes to keep hair out of their face.  A proper ballet bun is required for all students taking Ballet in grades 4 and up.  For a tutorial on creating a bun, please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=882m4QKu0sg.

Additional opportunities to volunteer and help BSG to run smoothly are listed below.  If you do not volunteer for a committee at the time of registration or Open House, then you will be assigned to one.  Please note that very few of the committees require more than a few hours of your time for the entire dance year.   There is also the option of opting out of volunteering and donating $25 to our program. 

Fundraising

Members of this committee assist in coordinating and organizing program fundraisers.  Examples of past fundraisers: Yankee Candle, Joe Corbi’s Pizza, Restaurant Nights, Bingo Night and Date Night, Reisterstown Festival concession stand, and recital Candygrams & flower sales.  We are always looking for new and exciting fundraisers, and parents to run them!

Backstage Moms (Pre K & K): Members of this committee volunteer to remain backstage during the rehearsal and recital to assist with costume & shoe changes, trips to the potty and, of course, getting on and off stage!  (grades 1-12): Members of this committee assist dancers backstage with quick costume changes between dances. 

Rehearsal Babysitters (grades 1-4): All parents for grades 1-4 take turns babysitting the dancers during Saturday and evening recital rehearsals.  These parents provide activities and snacks for the dancers while they wait to dance. 

Scenery/Backdrop (grades 1-12): Members of this committee assist with building and painting of the scenery, props and backdrop for the recital. 

Refreshments Set Up & Clean Up (both recitals): Members of this committee assist in organizing and participating in the set up and clean up of recital refreshments.

BSG Recital Information

All recital costumes and tights (1 pair for each costume) are included in tuition prices.

Students will be measured for costumes in October.  Costumes are ordered as early as December, but will not be distributed until closer to scheduled Professional Picture Days.   A seamstress is available for one week during classes for alterations at no charge.  

Our recital theme is announced to all classes mid-winter.  Choreography of recital dances will begin in the Spring Session for both the Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten recital in May, and the grades 1-12 recital in June.  Please note that grades 1-12 have Saturday rehearsals beginning in May and evening rehearsals the week of the recital.  Further details of dates and times will be forthcoming.  Please note that dates are subject to change due to facility availability.
