•There is no pro-rated tuition. There are no refunds, credits or transfers of tuition for missed classes, snow days or holiday breaks. We strongly encourage students to make up any missed classes. Students may make-up classes during the year with any other class of the same level or lower, even if it is not the same type of dance.

•Tuition is due by the first lesson of the month. Payments may be made at the office, by mail or via telephone. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to make payments at the desk. Monthly statements are not mailed. We gladly accept the following methods of payment: Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

THESE FEES WILL NOT BE WAIVED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. Classes will be suspended for all accounts that are over 30 days past due. A $30 fee is charged on all returned checks.

•The studio reserves the right to deny students from participating in the recital, without a refund of costume or tuition monies, if absences are extreme and excessive.

If a dancer, 8 years or younger has breaks in between classes, a parent or guardian must be present and within view of the child. Any child, age 6 and under, may not be left unattended at the studio, at any time, regardless of whether or not they are in class. If a student is left unattended, we will first call the parent or guardian. If the parent or guardian is not reachable, we will move to the emergency contact.
