What is the Parent Portal & do I have to use it?
The Parent Portal will give you access to the things you need throughout the year and we encourage you to use it! In the parent portal you can:
- Pre-Register for the dance season!
- Accept Waivers
- View Enrolled Classes
- View Tuition Balance & Payment History
- View our Monthly Newsletter and Studio Announcements
- View Recital Costumes
- Access Shared Files and Music from student’s classes
- Contact the Studio
The Parent Portal can be accessed in two ways:
- On the web: https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/pennsportdance
- Through the new phone app! You can download the Parent Portal App from the Apple Store or Google Play store and log in with their DSP credentials.
The lobby at our studio rooms is available for parents/guardians to wait and watch their students on our live camera, if they wish. Parents/Guardians are not allowed to watch classes inside either of our studio rooms. This can be extremely distracting to students. Parents with children over the age of ___ are welcome to leave while their child is in dance class and pick them up once class is done.
Our class prices can be found here. Tuition is due on the 1st of the month if paying monthly. If paying weekly, it must be paid at the time each class is taken. You can pre-pay at any time. The front desk is happy to go over your balance with you, if you have questions.
Costumes & Fees
Each class will participate in the end of year recital and will need a costume to perform on stage. Costume prices vary depending on style, fabric, etc. There are two $25 costume deposits due in the beginning of the year for each class that you are enrolled in. The first due date is 10/17 and the other is 11/14. Charges for these deposits will be placed in your accounts at the beginning of those months (October & November). The balance of the costumes will be posted to your account once we know the total for each class costume. The balance is due by February 1st.
There are no refunds for missed classes, but you can choose to make up a class (see makeup class policy). If you choose to discontinue class you must notify us by phone or email by the end of the current month. If you are still enrolled when costumes are ordered, you are responsible for payment for costumes. All balances must be paid off at time of resignation from class.
Makeup Class Policy
If a student misses a class due to sickness or other reason, they may choose to make up in another class appropriate to their age and level. The front desk can let you know the class options.
