Dance Arts Studio Monthly Tuition Fees are calculated based on the total number of hours per week a dancer (or family) is taking.
Tuition fees are posted to students' accounts on the 1st of each month, with payment due on (or before) the 12th of each month. Credit card payments are processed monthly on the 12th, but the date posted to your bank account may vary due to weekends and/or holidays.
If a dancer is absent, they may arrange for a make up class if an alternative class day/time is available at the same level. No tuition credits or refunds will be issued for missed lessons under any circumstances. Any changes to your dancer's schedule must be submitted, in writing, prior to the 1st of the month.
Should your dancer need to withdraw from classes at any time during the season, written notice is required 10 days prior to the end of the month. If no notice is given, the family/student shall be responsible for all tuition/membership fees posted for the month in which notice is provided to the studio.
