Refunds are not given for cancelled classes; however, students are always encouraged to make up missed classes. Cancelled classes will be communicated via email, posted on our Facebook page and possibly the occasional text message.

Tuition and Payment Schedule
Our regular dance season consists of 36 weeks of classes broken up into 9 equal tuition installments (Sept - May). Most months have 4 weeks/lessons, but some months have less because of holidays, and some months have 5 weeks/lessons. We do not charge more for the months with 5 weeks - we do not charge less for the months with fewer weeks. There is NO tuition charge for the month of June even though there are still classes.
2 months of tuition (1st & last month) are due at the time of registration. If a student decides not to finish the season for any reason, the last month's tuition may be refunded if we receive notice in writing by DECEMBER 1st of the student's intention not to continue classes.
Monthly tuition is due the first lesson of each month (Sept - April). A $20 late fee will be charged to unpaid accounts after the 10th of each month.
Payments can be made online, by mail, or in person at the studio. We accepts checks, cash, and credit cards.
NO refunds or credits are given on missed classes. However, missed classes may be made up without additional charge.
A $20 fee will be charged for all refunded checks.
