Hours of Class
Tuition Payment, Registration, & Late Fees
Those registering before the season starts will have their first tuition payment due on the 1st of the month for that season. Otherwise, first month's tuition is due upon registration. Subsequent month tuition payments will be automatically withdrawn from your account on file on the 1st of each month.
Tuition payments are set up to be easy and consistent and are not based upon the number of classes during a month, but rather, on the number of classes during the entire session. Our fall session is 32 weeks and is paid equally across the 9 months (September - May). Our summer session is 9 weeks and is paid for equally across the 3 months (June - August).
A registration fee for those not currently active will apply - $20 per dancer or $30 per family.
Any tuition or studio charges not paid by the 15th of the month will be subject to a late fee of $15. Consistent delinquent payments or accounts over 30 days past due may result in the suspension of that student's participation in class. No student will participate in any studio function until all fees have been received and clear. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please contact us. We do not want to deny any child an opportunity to dance if a viable solution is available.
Any returned payments will be charged a $35 NSF fee. Please note that we may use electronic (ACH) check processing to collect check amounts and allowable NSF fees.
Automatic billing must be established at registration and will continue unless you notify us. If you choose to pay manually please contact the office to make arrangements. With this option, tuition for the first & last month must be paid at registration. A debit/credit card is required as backup and will only be billed if we do not receive your manual tuition payment by the 15th of the month.
The following payment options are currently available -
Credit/Debit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover)*
Automatic Bank Draft (ACH)
*3% fee applies to those making any payment with credit/debit card
Missed Classes & Refunds
There are no pro-rated fees or refunds for any missed classes. Students are allowed to make up any missed classes in another same or lower level class. Please note that calamity days are already built into the schedule. Classes cancelled due to in-climate weather or teacher illness may not necessarily be re scheduled, although students are welcome to make them up following the class make-up policy.
The office must be notified in writing immediately if a student must withdraw from a class. Until such notice is given, the space will be held for the student and the charges invoiced to the account holder.
The overall rate for group classes decreases as the number of class hours increases providing a built in multiple class discount.
Family Discount - A family discount of 10% will be deducted from the total monthly group class tuition for families with more than one immediate family student registered. The tuition schedule (page 3) is per student. Friends, cousins, etc. registering at the same time / same account does not qualify for the family mulit-student discount.
Referral Credit - A one time discount per account is applied based on referrals brought by current account holders/students. Each account will receive a $50 tuition credit.
Current Accounts - receive credit at the time the new account/dancer registers and pays their first months tuition.
New Account - receive credit towards 2nd month tuition
