Holiday Closings & Cancellations:

The studio will generally follow the holiday schedule observed by the traditional New Hanover County School System (not year-round schedule). There are some school holidays & teacher workdays that are NOT holidays at T.I.M. If a class is canceled due to unexpected &/or unannounced circumstances such as an illness, family emergencies etc., we will provide a make-up class. The studio does not provide make-up classes for inclement weather, power failures or any other natural act that is of no fault of our own. Any & all studio closings will be announced in the monthly newsletters, on studio website and/ or on the studio answering machine. (910) 799-3223 prior to the closing date.

There are no tuition adjustments, deductions for vacations or short months or missed lessons as our schedule is planned so that each class receives the same number of classes per dance season. Please keep in mind that some months have 3 lessons, and some months have 5. We do not charge extra tuition for that 5th week.
