Enrollment takes place from our website in the parent portal. Complete child’s information, selection of classes, enroll in autopay, and pay a registration fee of $25 to hold a spot in a class. Registration fees are nonrefundable. Students are expected to enroll for the entire season of ten months, August-May. You may pay your tuition in one payment, two payments, or in ten monthly payments. If paid in monthly instalments, you are required to enroll in autopay. Tuition will be charged the first of each month.
-There are no refunds, credits, or deductions for missed classes or holidays.
-Students with delinquent accounts will not be admitted in class until the account is current. Upon Registration, you have reserved your child’s class time until May of the registering season. You will be billed and are liable for the payment of tuition for those classes whether or not your child attends the class until we are notified, IN WRITING, of your desire to cancel your child’s enrollment. If you choose to change or terminate services, you must submit the change in writing 1 month prior to the drop/change in order to stop charges.
-Parents are responsible for correction credit card information in the parent portal. Updating information is important to prevent failed processing. There is a $15 Late Fee applied to tuition if not paid by the 15th of the month. Any returned checks will be charged a $25 fee.
EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENTS
Proper discipline is expected in the classroom. The school reserves the right to dismiss any student who upsets the harmony of the class.
Students should be on time for class. Tardiness is a disruption to the class. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. All students should arrive in plenty of time to dress, arrange their hair and go to the bathroom. Please be sure young dancers have been to the restroom before class begins.
The school expects students to adhere to the dress code and to practice modesty. Hair must be pulled up. Level 3 and up are required to have a bun for class.
Children may not be left unattended at any time. Students must be picked up promptly after the dismissal of their class.
No food, gum, or candy is allowed inside the dance studios or hallway. All food should be kept in lobby.
Students should not wear their dance shoes outside. Oil and dirt, when tracked into the studio, are hazardous to a dancer.
Stud pierced earrings are the only jewelry allowed in the studio classroom.
