Policies & Dress Code


Class Placement

Class placement is determined by The School of Ballet Hartford Faculty. It is based on ability over age and is subject to re-evaluation throughout the year. The start of a new year or term, does not automatically signify a change in level placement. If there are any questions regarding placement, the student and parent should contact SBH Staff for a private meeting.

Injury Policy

If an injury prevents a student from participating in class, they are expected to attend class and rehearsal to observe. If a student incurs an injury that prevents them from returning to class per doctor’s diagnosis, they are required to provide a doctor’s note and a 50% refund or remaining classes will be issued.

Refund Policy

There are no refunds offered with exemption of a doctor’s note. Be aware these are considered on a case-by-case basis.
