Dance Program Policies

Parental Supervision

Children must have parental supervision before and after their class.

Make-Up Policy

Callanwolde is not responsible for classes missed due to student absences. Parents should discuss make-up policy with their Instructor. Dance students must make up classes missed during a quarter before the end of that quarter. Children should attend a class of the same age group with the same instructor.

Parents’ Day

Parents may observe the class ‘in action,’ and may discuss their child’s personal growth and development with the instructor on the last day of dance classes each quarter. In the Spring Quarter, we hold our Annual Children’s Recital; classes that perform in this recital do not have a parent observation day.

Scholarship Assistance

A limited number of partial scholarships are available to dance students 5-years-old and older. Criteria are need, talent, and commitment to the program. All scholarship funds for 2013-14 have been awarded.

Inclement Weather

Monday‐Friday: Callanwolde will be closed and classes will be cancelled if DeKalb County Schools are closed due to inclement weather. Watch your local TV stations for information on school closings.

Saturdays: our phone message will announce any cancellations. Call 404.872.5338 for information.

Publicity Waiver

Occasionally, Callanwolde takes photos of classes or events for publicity purposes. If you prefer not to have your picture or your child’s picture taken during such an event, please tell the photographer or notify the Publicity Office in advance.


To withdraw from a class:

  • Students must notify the registration office by phone, mail, or in person; e-mails are not acceptable notification for withdrawal.
  • Students must notify the registration office at least two business days before the first class meeting in order to receive a refund less a $20.00 withdrawal fee per class.
  • NO REFUNDS OR TRANSFERS WILL BE MADE AFTER THAT TIME. Contracts are already signed with the instructors, who are paid according to the number of students registered.
  • Refunds take 1–2 weeks to process.
