These policies may be confusing, so please use this to get a general idea of the rates.  If you have any questions, please contact Laura Rose (Studio (preferred method)   

Text: 919-614-9029 with any questions or concerns.

Reminder that TDS is not responsible for anything lost, stolen or left items in the space. Please take all your belongings when you leave the location.

Aerials or risky gymnastics of any kind are not allowed in the studios.

The studio floors are expensive to replace, therefore, stilettos and Taps on shoes need to have protective caps – in order to preserve the dance floor.

Studio minimum rental is 1 hour. Pricing is per hour, but can accommodate 30 minutes increments after the first hour.

  • This means if you want to rent for 20 minutes, you will be charged 1 hour studio time.
  • If you would like 1 hour and 20 minutes, you will be charged 1.5 hours of studio time.

Residential Neighborhood Concerns      

Reminder that these studios are in a residential neighborhood; therefore, please keep noise and music to a reasonable level. This means, no excessively loud music after 10pm

This is also a no smoking/no alcohol establishment.

Music Level     

In order to make sure the music/sound levels do not disturb the neighbors, please use the free “Sound Meter” phone app to monitor your music levels to under 75 dbs. (and under 60 dbs. after 10pm).

Security System   

Although TDS is not responsible for any lost, stolen or left property in the space, a video security system has been installed in all studios for dancers and community safety.  It will also be utilized to verify class size.

Non-Refundable Deposits

Due to a high number of “no-shows”, we now require a deposit to reserve studio space for workshop, parties or special events.

·         The non-refundable deposit for weekend, workshop, parties or special events is $100.

·         This non-refundable deposit goes toward the rental rate.

Over-time Usage Policy

Cancellation Policy

Cancelation Policy: Due to studio time becoming busier we need to have a cancellation policy.

Therefore, if you are a regular and frequent weekly renter, you are allowed 3 cancellations per year with at least 24 hours’ notice.

After your three given cancellations (with at least 24 hours notice), you will also be charged $25 per scheduled session. If given enough noticed and we can get the room re-booked, there will be no charge. 

If no notice (less than 24 hrs.) is given, you are responsible for the full reservation payment (this include privates on Weekends and after 6pm Weekday usage). 

Due to the nature of last-minute notifications from students taking privates, there will be no penalty charge for privates scheduled BEFORE 6pm on weekdays. Privates on the weekends and after 6pm on weekdays (the studio prime time usage) will follow the same rules as group class cancelations. You are required at least 24 hours advance notice, or will be charged the full rate of your reservation. As always, notification is required so that the calendar can be updated.

Note: It may be a good idea to share the studio’s cancellation policies with your private students, as a way to easily institute your own student cancellation policies. Share the cost of their cancellation – so that it makes it easier to recoup some of your losses as well.

You will not be charged for any cancellations due to weather related conditions.  If the state or local government shuts down indoor activities, you will not be charged for any cancellations.

If paid through PayPal in advance of usage, and you need to cancel due to weather – you can either use the payment as future credit or receive a full refund.
