A non-refundable registration fee is required for all students at the beginning of each new dance season and must accompany a registration form. A student’s spot in class WILL NOT be held without registration fee and first month’s tuition. The fee is $25 for each dancer.
TUITION AND PAYMENT POLICY
Tuition is due the 28th of the month prior to class starting. For example, October tuition is due on September 28th.
Tuition paid after the 1st of the month is considered late and will be subject to a $5 late fee. Tuition is the same whether months have three weeks or five weeks. If a student enrolls after the season begins and after the first week of the month, tuition for that month will be pro-rated based on the number of weeks left in that month. Failure to keep your account current could result in suspension of enrollment until the balance is paid.
When making payments, please include student’s name and what the payment is for specifically (example: Jessica Smith August Tuition). Payments may be made by check, cash or credit card.
Students will be given a TUITION card upon registering. This card MUST be kept with the student at all times (usually attached to dance bag) and must be shown to each teacher upon entering each class. Students who pay monthly will need to get their card stamped when paying tuition each month. A lost tuition card or card holder must be replaced by paying $5 to the office. Students without tuition cards will not be admitted to class.
Additional fees such as recital fees, costume fees, parade shirts, props, etc. are due at various times throughout the year and are noted on the yearly calendar. Students will receive payment envelopes at least two weeks prior to the date fees are due. All additional fees MUST be returned IN THE PROVIDED ENVELOPE. This helps the office keep careful record of what each dancer has paid for. Thank you in advance for your compliance with this. No refunds. NO exceptions.
Students may come to dance class in active wear clothing, meaning clothing that allows the students to stretch and move without causing distractions or limitations. Any clothing that is inappropriate that shows too much skin will not be allowed. Any student in a ballet class needs to have a black leotard and pink tights. A skirt is optional.
Students who drop ANY class or lesson prior to the end of the season MUST GIVE WRITTEN NOTICE TO THE OFFICE prior to the first of the month. This will stop the tuition billing process for that particular class. Failure to give notice could result in additional charges to your account.
If you miss more than 3 consecutive classes without notifying the studio, you will be automatically dropped from classes and must pay a new enrollment fee to resume classes. If you attend any classes during a month, you are responsible for the tuition for the entire month. If there is a circumstance that will cause a student to miss three or more classes in a row, but the student intends to return, please let us know. We may have wait lists for classes and we will not hold your student’s spot for the class if we do not hear from you in regard to him/her returning. If there is a circumstance that would cause him/her to miss numerous classes AND you notify us (in writing via email plus verbally to the teacher) we will hold the student’s spot until the expected return date.
If a teacher changes a student’s class or level, he/she will notify the parent first. Please confirm this change with the office so that each roster for each class is correct. This is VERY important in regard to recital costumes and payments. If we are not aware of the change in the office, it is possible that a costume oversight could occur. Thank you for your help in this matter.
BAD WEATHER POLICY/ ATTENDANCE / MAKE-UP CLASSES
We will post to our website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts to announce studio closures for bad weather days. In the event that a class is cancelled due to bad weather, we will schedule a make-up class, otherwise students are welcome to take a class of the same level on a different day. There are not refunds for missed classes, although make-up classes are available at certain times. Please see the office for questions about make-up classes.
Please make every possible attempt to be on time. Of course we understand that things happen from time to time that are out of your control. Consistent tardiness may be addressed by removal from the class or suggestion of another class with a time more fitting to the family’s schedule.
