Registering for classes

Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. A complete registration will include the paper registration form, first month’s tuition and registration fee(s). Or you can register online here. Incomplete registration forms or incorrect payment amounts may delay your registration. We will notify you only if there is a problem. Please feel free to email the studio if you have any questions. No confirmation will be sent. You can assume you have been registered unless you hear from us. Classes will be closed when they become full and names will be added to a waiting list. Classes not meeting minimum enrollment may be cancelled.

 

Registration Fee

There is an annual non-refundable $35.00 registration fee due at the time of registration. This fee is for each member and the Registration fee is due each year in September with the first month’s tuition, or at time of registration.

 

Tuition

Tuition is based on 10 months, September through June. Tuition is NEVER prorated. It is divided into 10 equal monthly installments. Tuition is due at the time of registration for the first month and will be automatically withdrawn from your account on the 1st of each month. Auto-pay with a debit or credit card is the only form of payment accepted for tuition. Click here to see our class tuition rates.

 

Adding & Dropping Classes

In order to stop service or “drop a class” we must receive notice by email by the 15th of the previous month. Example: If you wish to stop classes starting the month of December, an email must be sent to the studio by November 15th. Click here to email us. 

 

Recital & Costume Fees

The studio also requires payment in full for all recital fees & costume fees by the published deadline. Student withdrawals after payment will not result in a refund of these fees, but you will still receive your costume/jewelry. The recital fee is $45 and costume fees are $75.00- due by the published date, and are considered LATE after then and there incurring an additional $40 late fee for shipping. Please note that shoes and tights are not included in this price.

 

Costume measurements

These will be done by the parent and you will then use the sizing chart provided by THE URGE to determine which size you would like to order. Costumes that do not fit will only be sent back at the discretion of the studio and will cost a shipping fee. Checks and Cash will be the only form of payment accepted to purchase recital costumes.

 

Recital Tickets

Tickets go on sale 1-2 months before the recital date. Tickets range from $20-$30 and are sold through a 3rd party website (TutuTix.com). All refunds, and questions will be directed to them. 

 

Billing

WE DO NOT BILL! Tuition is charged according to the current established tuition policy (auto-pay). Once enrolled you are responsible for monthly tuition payments without receiving a monthly statement reminder. Late notices will be sent out after the 1st of each month. Please keep your card on file updated at all times.

 

Payment

PLEASE NOTE THAT INVOICES FOR TUITION WILL NOT BE MAILED. We are requiring everyone to have a card on file, for an automatic payment. This will show on your bank statement as Dancestudiopro.com. We accept VISA, MASTERCARD, and AMEX. Tuition payments will be withdrawn on the 1st of each month, for the following month. If your card comes back as declined, expired, or stolen, you will be notified immediately.

You will be responsible for setting up your personal online account here, and making changes as needed. If your payment is received after the 5th, you will be charged a $25 late fee. 

 

Returned Checks

There will be a $45.00 service fee on all returned checks. 

 

Drop-Ins

You may attend a class on a drop-in basis. Drop-in fees are $30.00 for 45 minute classes, $40.00 for 90 minute classes. The drop-in fee is due before the class begins. If a class becomes full, the teacher is unable to take any drop-in students.

 

Class Make-up Policy

We encourage you to keep track of your missed classes and take advantage of a make-up class. The class taken should be equal to the dancer’s age and level, and it should not be a full class. Any class cancelled due to teacher absence will be made up at a time arranged with that teacher. When notified in advance of a prolonged illness or injury keeping the student out of class for longer than one month, your account will be put on hold and your space held only if you have notified the director immediately.
