General Academy Policies

Cell Phones

DEYA provides a designated bin by the door of each studio for students to leave their powered OFF cell phones.

Dress Code

We ask that everyone come prepared to effectively participate in your class, adhering to dress codes assigned at registration. Dry, indoor shoes are mandatory in every studio. DEYA is a scent-free building.

Financial Assistance

DEYA is able to provide financial assistance to some families requiring tuition support. To request financial aid, or request a payment plan, please contact us.


Food and drinks other than water will be consumed in the Green Room area only, and will not be consumed in the change rooms or studios. Only water is permitted and every student should have a water bottle with them when they take class. No gum is permitted anywhere in the building. We strongly express that we are a nut-free building.

DEYA has included pronoun identifiers as part of the registration process. This helps staff to respect the identity of our students, and encourage others in the class to do so as well.


DEYA has an Open Door Policy and encourages clear communication with the families we serve. Out of respect for the students in the building, we ask parents and students not to approach teachers between classes but make an appointment instead.

DEYA reserves the right to change and substitute instructors as necessary.

Lost Articles

DEYA is not responsible for any lost or stolen articles. We have a lost and found bin located in the Green Room, but these items are only kept for a limited time, after which they are donated.

Observation Of Classes

Every room at DEYA has state-of-the-art video surveillance camera. Monitors can be viewed from the lobby area.


DEYA offers full-time reception staff during operating hours. Our receptionist will be happy to answer your calls and questions.

Weather Closures

DEYA reserves the right to cancel classes due to weather conditions. DEYA monitors the closures of public transit and public institutions, as well as weather warnings to determine when a closure should be made. If public transit is closed, so are we. We will email parents if a decision to cancel classes is reached. If a class must end early due to worsening weather conditions, parents of students will be called directly.

The rescheduling of canceled classes may or may not be possible.
