Hello everyone!

The season is off to a fabulous start, and we can't wait to see the rest of you this coming week! Here's what you'll need to know to make it a great one...

Theme Months/Weeks

We hope to build a spirit of community at Studio J PAC, and one of the ways we do that is with our fun Theme Week activities. Sometimes these activities will be done entirely by the instructors in class, and sometimes we will need a little help from you! Please check each week to see what the theme is so your student doesn't miss out on the fun! Now let's kick off our first theme month and week...

September is GET TO KNOW ME MONTH so we are asking for all of our studio families to

submit a fun 4X6 family picture (hard copy or emailed to dianne.studiojdanceok@gmail.com ) to hang in the studio. Dance party pictures preferred!!! You may submit your fam picture anytime in September, or upon enrollment.

Sept 13-17 - "Who are YOU" Week - Teachers will be playing fun name-games in class this week to help us get to know one another.

Important Dates

Sept 15 - Tuition/Performance Fees Due - Autopay clients please be sure to have a current card on file. You may call us at 405-348-3377 to update.

Oct 13-15 - Studio J Closed - Fall Break

Nov 22-26 - Studio J Closed - Thanksgiving Break

Dec 20-31 - Studio J Closed - Christmas Break

Tuition Policy Reminder - Monthly tuition is set by dividing the yearly cost into 9 convenient installments, and then adding the performance fees. Breaks, weather cancellations, dress rehearsals, pictures, and performances have all been accounted for, so tuition will be the same each month Sept-May regardless of the number of classes in any given month. Tuition is due no later than the 15th, after which late fees will apply. If you need to drop a class, you MUST contact the office...you will continue to be charged until your drop is formally processed. Drops must be processed before the start of the next month or you will owe tuition for that month, even if you haven't attended a class. Thank you for your cooperation!

Epic Learning Fund - Studio J continues to be an Epic Vendor, however there have been significant changes to the process. Epic is implementing a new system and there will be a short lapse in their ability to approve and pay for services. If you plan to use Epic Learning Funds for Studio J classes, you must complete this Google form and then await confirmation by email on when Epic payments will go into affect. Please be aware, parents are responsible for all payments prior to approval, and following the depletion of Epic funds. You are also responsible for paying your monthly performance fee, so you must have a current card on file for auto pay. Here is the link to the form: https://forms.gle/LGrHCg8mSRPDUpT89
