Tuition is based on a yearly fee that is divided into nine equal monthly payments (September - May). 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) September 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.
All statements will be E-Statements. Statements and bills will only be mailed to past due amounts. 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
NS Dance will showcase all of their wonderful students and the achievements they have made throughout the year with an end of the year recital.Recital fees help assist in the tremendous undertaking of putting on a 1st class performance; e.g. theater rental, technical crews, additional staff, memory book class pictures. The recital fee also, includes, two complimentary tickets to one show, one recital t-shirt per child and one memory book per family.Please notify the office by September 1st if you do not wish to participate in Recital. This fee is due on February 1st, and is non-refundable. Virtual Classes and Dance Team Technique are non-recital classes.
Students performing in the annual recital will be required to purchase one costume for each class they are enrolled. The first costume will be due on September 15th, and each additional costume will be due on the 15th of each month until all costumes are paid. All costumes must be paid in full by January 15th. Please notify the office by September 1st if you do not wish to participate in Recital. Once a costume has been ordered the costume fee will not be refunded; even if the class was dropped. Any costume not picked up by recital will be donated to a charitable organization.
Automated payments will be processed from your account on September 15th for the first costume. Each additional costume will be auto drafted the 15th of each month until all are paid.
*5K Combo and 5/6 Year Combo will have 2 costumes.
*Virtual Classes and Dance Team Technique are non-recital classes, and will not require a costume.
All students will be placed in classes by the NS Dance Faculty accordingly. The office does not have authorization to place or change placement of any student. Students will be placed by ability and not the amount of time they have taken dance.
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. Students who are constantly absent will tend to struggle in their advancement and may be dismissed from the class. If this occurs costume fees and/or recital fee will not be refunded. No more than three absences after January 1 due to the preparation of the annual recital.
All students should secure hair neatly off the face in a bun or ponytail. Short hair must be pulled back securely away from the face. All Ballet Students are required to wear their hair in a bun, secured with hairpins and a hair net. No ponytails are allowed in ballet.
