One time non-refundable fee of $40 for entire family
Tuition is based on one full school term (September-June), divided into 10 monthly payments. When pricing our monthly tuition we consider the entire dance season from September – June and take into account the holiday closure dates, long months (extra week of classes within a month), the extra mandatory practices and the extra hours we will be rehearsing with the kids on the show weekend. We do not pro-rate for months with holidays or if you enroll mid-month. There will be no refunds given for any dropped classes mid-month.
For New Students, the first payment is due, along with the registration fee, at the time of enrollment. Future monthly payments are due the 1st. Although the number of classes may vary per month, the monthly fee remains constant and is as we have already accounted for the total number of classes when setting our annual tuition amount. Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments for simplicity. Note that because tuition is based on a yearly cost, there is no pro-rating for shorter months. Statements will be sent via e-mail if your account is not paid by the 10th, in which case a late fee will be attached.
Tuition is based upon the total number of classes your family (or “child/children are”) is enrolled in.” For example, if you would like to enroll one child in 2 classes a week and your other child in just one dance class a week, then the total number of classes you will be enrolling in is 3 classes a week. Therefore you will select the 3 class a week option. You will only have the option of choosing one of the classes for your children. After you submit payment for the number of classes a week your family will be enrolling in. We will then contact you immediately to place your children in the additional classes of your choice.
Make-up Classes/ Absences
In the event of vacation or illness, make-up classes may be taken in any other appropriate class within the same month of the missed class. Make-up classes must be scheduled via email (email@example.com) in advanced and in a class that is not currently full. If all classes are full for your student’s age group we cannot accommodate a make-up class. No credit will be given for missed classes. MAKE-UP CLASSES WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE STARTING DECEMBER 1st 2019, AS ALL CLASSES WILL BE IN PREPARATION FOR THE JUNE RECITAL AND ALL CLASSES WILL BE LEARNING DIFFERENT ROUTINES.
Absences from class, due to illness or conflicting obligations, will not alter monthly tuition in any way. If an equivalent level is not available, your teacher will recommend an appropriate make-up class. If four or more absences occur on an attendance roster, it is at the discretion of the faculty if the student will be allowed to participate in examinations and performances. When two absences occur in a row, the office should be notified by phone or email. Chronic unexplained absences may result in a dancer being dismissed from the performance and/or the school.
All withdraws must be done in writing via email and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before the 1st of the upcoming month to avoid being charged tuition for that month. Withdraws made after the 1st will not go into effect until the 1st of the next month. Once tuition is paid it is non-refundable, even in the event of a withdraw for any reason.
Talking is not allowed during instruction. Gum and Jewelry are not allowed in dance class. Students are to be respectful to their teachers and classmates at all times. Behavior Problems: If a student causes any disruption that interferes with the learning process, the student may be asked to sit out. If the student continues to be disruptive, the teacher or the school directors will contact the parents. Chronic behavior issues may be grounds for dismissal.
Back Lobby Area & Housekeeping
• Nobody is allowed to sit inside the dance studio. It is very distracting not only to our dancers but our teachers as well. We have a designated lobby for seating in the back for all spectators who wish to stay while their child is in class.
• No child under the age of 8 should be left unattended for more than 10 minutes, unless they are waiting for their class to begin, or waiting to be picked up.
• We do not have any barrier between our lobby and dance studio so we ask that you as well as your children please be respectful to our classes in session and keep your voice and any noises down as to not distract our teachers or dancers
• PLEASE BE ON TIME TO PICK UP YOUR DANCER
• Please be aware and respectful of your surroundings! Inappropriate language, conversations, or behavior will not be tolerated.
• We strive to keep a clean and tidy dance studio not only to create an enjoyable atmosphere, but for the comfort off all dancers and parents. Please keep our reception area, dance studios, bathrooms, and hallways clean!
• NO food, drinks (water ok), or gum in the studios. If you make a mess, please clean it up!
Dancing is physical exercise – you participate at your own risk and it is your responsibility to consult your physician to conﬁrm your fitness capabilities before beginning any dance lessons. A doctors’ note may be required to begin a class if you have special physical concerns, or to return to activity after an absence from class due to injury, illness, or during pregnancy. Always make your instructor aware of any physical limitations or concerns that you may have.
Participation in our production is optional. Those choosing to participate will require the advance purchase of a costume. The costume fees will be automatically deducted from your mindbody account on January 1st . If your child does not wish to participate in the June recital then you will need to submit a written email to Cydanceworks@gmail.com letting us know by Monday, December 30th. If we do not receive an email by then, we will assume your child is participating and charge your account. This costume purchase is non-refundable after December 1st. No late costume orders will be placed.
