Monthly tuition is due on the 1st of the month. Failure to provide payment by the 10th of the month will result in a $15 late fee. Payment may be made by cash, check, or credit card. If joining after the 1st week of the month, payments will be prorated by week (excluding Holidays).
All families are required to have a valid credit card on file for class registration. Statements are e-mailed on or about the first day of class each month. Unless prior arrangements have been made, any outstanding balance will be applied to the card on file on the 10th of the month or as noted on the monthly statement. Any payment that is not honored by a financial institution will be considered late and will result in a $15 late fee. Any returned check will result in a $30.00 service charge. No discounts or prorated rates will be given for scheduled days off, holidays, illness, family events, or school functions. Tuition is the same for a holiday month or a month with 5 weeks. For insufficient or neglected payments, student participation will be suspended until account is settled. All registration fees, tuition, production, costume, and other payments are non-transferable and non-refundable. A receipt will be given to all payments made in cash.
Annual productions are performed once a year. Registration in a production class will be viewed as the parents commitment to pay production and costume fees unless written notification is received at the time of registration. Costume providers have deadlines in order to meet their ship dates. We cannot guarantee costumes will arrive in time for the production for students registering after January 31st. There are no refunds of production or costume fees. Costume providers will not cancel orders once in production.
All classes require a 2 month minimum enrollment. Students may transfer class during this time frame. A 30-day notice is required to discontinue any class. To withdraw from class, student’s parent / legal guardian must inform the studio via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Withdrawal must be communicated to the office staff (not dance instructor)
ATTENDANCE / TARDINESS
Students who are tardy (arrive late to class) may be required to make-up classes. A minimum attendance level is required. If a student misses more than four classes without an official notice, student may require private lesson(s) to make-up missed classes and to be able to participate in the annual production.
Students may make up missed classes by coming to the same class that meets on another day or join another class of similar style spce permitting.
It is the responsibility of the parent(s) / guardian to be aware of all studio activities, such as but not limited to: observation days, Holidays, productions, extra classes, rehearsals, dates the studio is open / closed.

All non-participating children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent / guardian while waiting in the lobby. All non-participating children in the lobby must remain quiet and are not permitted to run or roam the halls freely. If noise levels become disruptive, non-participating children and their accompanying adult may be asked to kindly wait outside the lobby until all participating children are finished with class.
CARE OF STUDENTS
Dancer Strong regards safety as a high priority and will always guard the well-being of all students. That said, Dancer Strong will not be held liable for post-class care of students. Phone calls will be made to parent / guardian for students left for excessive amounts of time, and student(s) may be asked to wait in the office until parent / guardian arrives. Please be considerate of all studio / office hours. Parent(s) / guardian with student(s) under the age of 5 must inform their instructor before leaving the studio. If parent / guardian does not return before the next class begins, student(s) will remain with their instructor or be asked to wait in the office, with office staff personnel.
Parent(s) / guardians, please allow time for your children to use the restroom before class, so not to impede instruction. During class time / instruction students may not loiter in the restrooms and must return to class immediately after using the restrooms.
