How to Register
Please complete the Registration Packet and return the forms with a check or money order to cover class fees and the annual registration fee (payable to "Larry Cervi School"). A payment is required to secure placement on the class roster. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Private lessons are available in all subjects on an individual basis. Tuition for private lessons varies with subject and faculty. Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
Students who register after the third week are not eligible for term payment, but may select the monthly payment schedule, plus the annual registration fee.
Refunds are not provided for missed classes. Missed classes may be made up by attending a class at the same level or lower during the term of the missed class. To withdraw from a class, a student must notify the office in writing after the second class and prior to the third class. After the third class, the student is liable for the full tuition. No exception to this policy can be permitted. Students taking private classes must speak with the faculty member regarding make-up policy.
Believing that stage performances are beneficial to the students, the school presents a recital each June to showcase the students' achievements. Students must take two consecutive terms (winter and spring) of instruction to be eligible to participate. Exceptions to this policy will be at the discretion of the individual faculty member. Participation in the annual recital is not mandatory. Costumes will be selected at reasonable prices. Students will be measured, and costumes must be paid for in December when the order is placed. Refunds are not available for costumes purchased. Dates for recital ticket sales will be announced in advance.
Any class that has less than five (5) students will be treated as a semi-private class, and the time will be adjusted accordingly.
Students and/or parents are asked to call the school in advance to report an absence. Students may make up classes during the same term only. Should prolonged illness or injury occur, students might receive credit to be used within the next term by providing a physician's certification to the school office. Without consent of the school, classes may not be made up in alternate terms. No monetary reimbursements will be provided for missed classes. Cancellation of classes due to inclement weather or faculty illness (where no substitute is available) will be rescheduled at an appropriate time.
If classes must be cancelled, an announcement will be made on the school's voice mail system, on KDKA, WTAE and WPXI television stations and on our Facebook page.
Punctuality is very important. Warm-up basics for all classes are given at the start of the class. Faculty members have the discretion as to whether or not to allow a student to enter a class. Late arrivals are disruptive to the teacher and the other students.
Snacks and beverages are available in the lobby area. Food and beverages are not permitted in the studios or dressing rooms. Please dispose of all trash in the containers provided, and clean up after yourself. Students are responsible for their personal belongings.
Students are asked to conduct themselves as polite ladies and gentlemen while in the waiting areas, halls and dressing rooms.
Children waiting for relatives or friends in class are encouraged to bring homework or a "quiet" activity to occupy themselves. Parents are encouraged to reinforce the importance of these rules and conduct so that coming to class can be a pleasant experience for everyone.
