Tuition is based on a yearly fee that is divided into ten equal monthly payments. Your monthly payment is not related to the number of classes in the month. When you enroll, you register your child for an entire season of classes (30 Classes) August through May. Even though you enroll for a season, we do allow you to drop at any time with a 30-day notification. The number of classes that occur in any given month depends on the calendar and any holidays or breaks that may take place during that month. Tuition is not prorated due to absences, weather, or scheduled closings.Liberal makeup classes will be available. Private lessons are available upon request at a rate of $60/hour plus a $10/hour studio rental fee.

A late fee of $10.00 will be assessed for accounts not paid in full by the 10th of each month. Accounts with balances of $200.00+ or 60 days past due will be charged a 15% late fee on what is due and the student will not be allowed to return to class until an agreement has been reached.

Automated payments will be processed on the 1st of each month. Automated tuition payments may be made with the use of your debit/ credit card. You are required to give the studio one month’s notice via email (chase@nsdancestudio.com) to discontinue classes and/or drop a class ($10.00 charge to change class schedule). Tuition is not refundable or transferable. The commitment will stop 30 days after the written notice is received via email. We reserve the right to automatically withdraw any family or student due to non- compliance of any studio policies. If auto draft is declined and we are not able to reach you by email or phone within 10 days of declined transaction, classes cannot be attended.

ATTENDANCE

 

In order for students to progress in their dance education and keep up with their class level, regular attendance is important. In the event that a student has to miss a class, an email must be sent to the instructor.
