2024 Summer Dance Camp Policies


Payment is due upon registration for dance camp and may be made within your parent portal via credit, debit, or ACH payments. (Convenience Fees are 3.05% + 0.30¢ for credit cards and 0.80% for ACH payments.)


If a student cancels their participation in camp, a 100% refund is available up to three weeks prior to the first day of camp (example: if camp begins June 18, a 100% refund is available until May 28). A 50% refund will be issued up to one week prior to the first day of camp (example: if camp begins June 18, 50% refund is available until June 11th). No refunds will be issued when the beginning of camp is within seven (7) days of the cancellation and request for refund.

In the event that a camp must be canceled due to low enrollment, a full refund will be issued to each student enrolled in the canceled camp.


Dress code for dance camps is more relaxed than our regular school year as we understand many of our students may be trying out dance for the first time, and we love that! While we would love for everyone to follow our dress code for ballet if possible (which you can find HERE), stretchy pants or leggings (no shorts), t-shirts, and socks are also acceptable. Shirts should not expose midriff or cleavage and may be tank top, short or long-sleeved (no camisoles, please). Older girls are advised to wear supportive sports bras. Hair must be pulled back from the face in a ponytail for ages 3-9, but must be in a bun for ages 10 and up.


  • Sanctuary Dance Academy currently rents the studio space inside "Shape Up" gym, located at 1436 N. Gateway Avenue, Unit 140, Rockwood, Tn. 37854. To enter the gym, please ring the doorbell and a staff member will gladly open the door for you.

  • Dress codes are created for a dancer's safety. Students are expected to abide by the dress code while in class.

  • Students must be supervised by their parent or guardian at all times prior to and after camp. Students younger than 16 should not exit the building alone or wait outside for pick-up.

  • Parents and siblings are welcome to wait in the gym lobby while dance camp is in session. Young siblings may use the play area. However, please supervise children CLOSELY at all times and do not allow them to play loudly or throw toys. Loud or unruly children will be asked to exit the children's area and sit with their parents.

  • For your safety, please use the walking track to access the restrooms. Walking through the gym equipment area is not allowed.

  • Parents or class assistants must accompany students younger than the age of 12 to the bathroom. Older students may go alone or in pairs at the discretion of the teacher or parent.

  • Only gym members may use the gym equipment at any time. If you would like to join the gym or purchase a day pass for $5, please speak with a gym staff member and they will be happy to assist you!

  • Parents and siblings may watch through the double doors (which are left slightly ajar for observation) but are not allowed to come inside the studio during camp time as this poses a distraction for the students.

  • Please try to arrive 5-10 minutes before camp begins.

  • No food or drink is allowed inside the studio room except bottled water with a secure lid.

  • Cell phone use is not allowed during class time.

  • Students and parents must be respectful of teachers, gym staff, and all other people at all times. Failure to do so may result in dismissal from the studio. Disrespectful or threatening words or behavior will not be tolerated.

  • Sanctuary Dance Academy reserves the right to dismiss a student or family from the studio for any reason at any time without any refunds should it be deemed necessary to do so.

We are deeply grateful to the owners of "Shape Up" Gym for allowing us to rent their beautiful space. Please help us care for and show respect for their property by abiding by the above rules.
