All dance classes at the Lionville branch of the YMCA of Greater Brandywine are a CONTINUOUS study of curriculum from September to June. (The dance instruction DOES NOT start new at the beginning of every month.) The curriculum and dance faculty at the Lionville branch is an extension of The Dance Center in West Chester, Official School of the Brandywine Ballet. Donna Muzio is the Director of both dance programs in West Chester and Lionville. Ms. Muzio's contact info: email@example.com or (610) 696-5023.
The students enrolled in the LIONVILLE dance program follow the same SCHOOL CALENDAR as the students in the West Chester Studio. All students are entitled to a make-up class, if they so choose, when classes are canceled due to holidays. Even though the YMCA may be open, dance classes may be canceled. Please refer to the calendar on the bulletin board and/or on - thedancecenter.org - website. Click on SCHOOL CALENDAR
Families have 2 options for registration: PRIOR TO AUGUST 1: Send Ronda Hamilton an email – firstname.lastname@example.org - requesting your class selection, family name, student name(s), phone number and email. An email will hold your spot until the YMCA is ready to accept on-line registrations in August. You will then be contacted by Ronda for payment.
After August 1 - On-Line and In Person. ON-LINE PROCEDURE: 1) Go to www.ymcagbw.org – follow the links to “Register for Programs” – click on “DANCE”. 2) IN PERSON PROCEDURE: Go to the Lionville YMCA and register at the Welcome Desk. Either way, you will need a Credit Card or Debit Card to register. Fall Registration is open starting August 20! Reserve your space early as most classes fill quickly!
Registrations are accepted all year long as long as (1) there is space in the class(es) you are requesting and/or (2) your child's age and experience is appropriate for one of our classes. The dance director will personally consult with families who are requesting registration mid-year to see which class is a good fit for the dancer within the program. Mid-year inquiries should first be directed to: Donna Muzio, Director (610) 696-5023.
Your registration for your selected class(es) will renew AUTOMATICALLY EACH MONTH UNLESS YOU CALL TO CANCEL.
Tuition will be automatically withdrawn from your credit or debit card on the first of each month from September to May if you are NOT participating in the Student Recital in June, and each month from September to June if you ARE participating in the Student Recital in June. All classes and rehearsals count as a full month of classes in June. There are no refunds for classes missed. Tuition will remain the same whether your child's class falls in a 3, 4, or 5-week month. Students are entitled to a make-up class for missed classes. Please consult with your child's teacher as to what class(es) is appropriate. Again, no deductions in tuitions will be made for classes missed due to personal appointments, snow closings, YMCA Holiday Schedule, The Dance Center’s School Calendar, etc. Pro-rating tuition will only apply to new students starting in the middle of a month. Make up classes may be taken in advance of your missed class if you know your schedule ahead of time. Again, all missed classes may be made up – no deductions in tuition or refunds will be given.
