FAQ’s

Can I register after the term has already started?

Yes. Although we recommend that students enroll at the beginning of the Academic Term so as not to miss out on important instruction, our classes are structured to meet the needs of students entering classes as late as November, when we typically choose class costumes for the Annual Student Production. Students who register after September 15  will be charged the regular $35 Registration Fee but will not have to pay for prior weeks of classes.

Do you offer trial classes?

A student is eligible for a single trial class in one or more dance disciplines.

What if my child doesn’t enjoy it after the first few weeks?

We recommend you choose the Sapphire Membership, which allows you to make quarterly payments over the 40-week term.  You and your child should know after 10 weeks if it is best to continue in a class, choose a different dance discipline or withdraw and try again later.  If you decide not to continue, please stop at the desk and fill out a withdrawal form.  Otherwise, your account will continue to be charged.

Do you offer discounts?

Yes. All of our combo classes have a built-in discount. A single student enrolled in three or more non-combo classes will receive 10% off each class.  For example, a student enrolled in teen tap, teen jazz and teen ballet will receive 10% off each class.

What is your refund policy?

GSTC does not offer refunds for missed classes.  Missed classes are usually made up in another class.  Registration, Production and Costume Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.  Tuition refunds will be handled on a case-by-case basis.  If a tuition refund is granted, a $35 processing fee will apply.

How do I know which class to enroll in?

Returning students will receive a class placement form. Typical class progression:

  • If student is 18 mos. by September 1 (enroll in Tiny Tot)
