Payment Procedure

Monthly tuition is due on the 1st, and is due automatically. Advance billing statements are not sent. Tuition payments made after 7:00pm PT on the 5th are considered late and must include the late fee. Tuition fees are based on enrollment not attendance. All students are required to pay their full monthly tuition regardless of the number of lessons attended or missed. Lessons missed due to illness or injury or for personal reasons/choice are not pro-rated, refunded or credited. The value of missed lessons is not transferable.

Saturday is considered a business day and payments are accepted during regular office hours (8:30am - 12:30pm).  When the 5th falls on a Sunday, or during a scheduled studio closure, you have until 7:00pm PT the following business day before the payment is considered late.

A $20.00 late fee will be charged if payment is not received before 7:00pm PT on the 5th. All enrolled students are expected to pay the full monthly tuition regardless of the number of classes attended. The value of unattended lessons is not refundable or transferable. If you decide to drop any class(es), please notify the studio office via the Class/Studio Drop Form found on this website under the Members menu.  Class or studio drops must be completed on or before the 25th of the month if you intend to drop the following month. i.e. you are attending in January but are not coming back for February, you must let us know by January 25th. All tuition accounts are posted and processed on the 1st of the month, once that happens you are considered enrolled for that month. There are no refunds, credits, or pro-rates available.

A $25.00 fee (per occurrence) will be charged for checks returned by your bank. Returned checks are not re-deposited.

Students with outstanding tuition may forfeit their reserved space. Payment boxes are located at both the Roosevelt Street and State Street studios for your convenience.  You may also pay tuition online through the Parent Portal or by notifying us to set your account to "auto-pay" so tuition can be charged to your cc automatically each month (contact office for complete details).  NO MORE LATE FEES! 🙂

To avoid late fees, mail-in payments must be RECEIVED by the 5th of the month and should be mailed to:

Adult Class Information

Adult classes are charged at the regular tuition rates.

Students over the age of 18 (even if related) are enrolled as individual accounts and do not qualify for family discounts.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Dropping a Class

Vacations or Extended Breaks

When taking a vacation or extended break from dance, please notify your instructors AND the studio office. In doing so, you have two options:

  1. To avoid tuition fees, you can drop your class(es). If all classes are dropped, you will be charged a $15.00 per student re-enrollment fee upon your return. You may lose your roster spot when dropping classes.
  2. You may reserve your spot (30 days max) by paying your full monthly tuition during your absence. It’s the teacher’s final decision to allow more or fewer days with this policy. If you plan on returning to the same class(es), you must speak to your instructor in advance for approval.
