For My Skaters

2016-17 Skating Season Guide for Pene DeMaster Skating

Effective September 2016 - August 31, 2017

 

Lesson Schedules and Availability:

I will post the schedule monthly on this page.  

Times are not first come first serve! I make every attempt to get everyone the time that best fits their schedule. Compromise is usually needed to get everyone into the limited amount of ice time available.

When it comes to multiple lessons in a week, I give preference to my primary students and those who are testing or competing in the near future.

***New this Season*** Each skater has one "sick" day where I will forgive a lesson fee. After that, your spot is your spot and you will be invoiced for that slot - if you are there or not

Practice Time:

I require all of my students to practice for 1 hour for every 30 minutes of lesson time they have. If the students don’t practice, then they can’t be ready for their next lesson. We should be working on new skills during lessons and not practicing last week’s lesson.

24 Hour Notice:

24 hour notice is required to cancel a lesson. Less than 24 hour notice and you will be charged. The 24 hour notice allows me a chance to fill your lesson spot with someone else.

Phone calls that last 15 minutes or longer will be billed according to my hourly rate in 15 minute increments. I recommend you use email and text communication whenever possible.

Charges:

  • 30 minute Lesson: $21
  • Music Cutting: $30/song (you will be supplied with 2 cd’s with the song on it)
  • Initial Competition/Testing Fee: $35.00
  • Initial Dance Testing Fee: $35.00
  • Secondary Competition/Testing Fee: $18.00
  • Secondary Dance Testing Fee: $9.00
  • Practice Session: $9.50 per 15 minutes.

Other charges related to competitions and test sessions, such as gas and hotel, will be split evenly among my primary students that attend that competition or test session and invoiced as a miscellaneous expense.

Invoices/Billing:

Invoices are created and emailed out at the end of each month and are due on the 15th of each month. Cash and checks are accepted in person or via mail. If you would like to use a credit/debit card there will be a link on your invoice. You may also use paypal or popmoney.com to pay. Use the email address penedemaster@gmail.com.
