Registration Policy The listing for each class specifies a deadline for registration. This date is when minimum enrollment numbers must be met. If there is insufficient registration by the deadline, the class will be cancelled and registrants will be called with the bad news. In addition, it is also possible that if numbers are extremely low a few days prior to deadline, a series may be pushed back to allow ample time to meet minimum. Or, cancelled and new dance offering presented. So please register as early as you can!
Providing we have met minimum numbers, registration for classes remains open until the second class of the series. No new registrations are accepted after the second week.
Unless otherwise specified, classes are open to both teens and adults. Partners are not necessary but do help balance the class.
Registration, a signed waiver, and payment are all required before participation.
PayPal Registration You can register for many classes online using PayPal. You don't have to have a PayPal account—you can use a credit card. Just click the button next to the class you want. If do you register using PayPal, please include your phone number and address (or at least indicate whether you live on or off the island) in the box labeled "Special instructions for the merchant." That will make it easier for us to contact you if class dates change. Also, if you are registering more than one person, please list the names of all people you are registering in the special instructions box.
Class Policies Check yourselves in on weekly attendance sheet and wear first name tags. Rotating partners is recommended, but not mandatory. Time is provided to dance with original partners.
We try to the balance lead/follow ratio on a weekly basis. Please let the instructor know if you’ll miss a class. As much notice as possible is greatly appreciated but even 1 hour ahead may allow time to pull in a lead or follow.
Instruction Unless noted, instruction is at the beginner to intermediate level. Level II classes provide intermediate to advanced instruction. If you choose a level II class, please be sure you have a solid foundation in the specific dance offered. The prerequisite for level II classes is participation in 2 prior series.
