Let's Dance, Inc Policies and Dress Code
Tuition: There is a non-refundable $35.00 per student registration fee or maximum family fee of $50.00 due upon enrollment along with your first month's tuition. Tuitions are due the first of every month. Tuitions are non-refundable. No tuition will be pro-rated or exempt from payment for late enrollment or other activities. Monthly tuition remains the same regardless of the number of weeks in the month, or the number of absences. We do not send out bills, it is your responsibility to make your scheduled payments on time. They may be mailed to the studio if you cannot make your payment in person. If a student starts or stops in the middle of a session, you are responsible for the entire session and each session thereafter until you notify the office. There is no reduction in tuition due to snow days, illness, family vacations, or holidays the studio is scheduled to be closed. Please be reminded the tuition is based on a ten-month school year and is broken down into monthly payments for your convenience.
Returned Checks :If the studio receives a 'returned check' the payee is required to pay a $25.00 bank charge and must replace the payment with cash or bank money order. If the returned check causes studio checks to be returned, there will be an additonal $35 charge.
Late Charge - Tuition: If tuition is more than 14 days late, there is a $15.00 late fee attached to your account. After 14 days you will be charged $10.00 for every week you're late after that. If tuition is more than 30 days late, we will contact you and ask that you keep your child home until the tuition is paid up to date. Please pay on time and use the payment envelopes provided for you.
***Attendance / Missed Lessons: Regular attendance is important, both to your child and the entire class. Please make every effort to have your child at every class. Students are encouraged to make up all missed lessons within a one month period. Please call the office to find out which classes are available to make up. No refunds or credits will be given for missed classes.
Class Observation: Our closed circuit TV's allow parents to observe class without disruption. We will, on occasion, allow parents into the class, usually the last few minutes to observe a routine or combination etc.
Snow Days / Cancellations: In the event of inclement weather, it is your responsibility to call the studio/check our website/social media for cancellation information. Public School cancellations do not necessarily mean that no school = no dancing school! Snow days are not made up.
Costume Policy : Costume payments are due in FULL by November 1st. It is expected that all students will perform in our annual recital unless the office is notified otherwise by October 1st. Unless otherwise notified, costumes will be ordered and you will be responsible to pay for ALL fees. Costume fees are non refundable at any time and costumes cannot be returned. If a student drops out before the performance, the costume(s) will be forfeited to the studio to use for a performing student if needed. All costume balances must be paid in full by the required date or late fees will apply.
Dress Rehearsal and Recital: Every year we hold a recital in early June with one dress rehearsal that takes place the week before the show.
