all about POLICIES
Our season consists of 35 weeks for our SPARKS (Pre-K) students and 36 weeks for our FORCE (K-12.)
Classes start the week of Labor Day (excluding the holiday) and run through the end of May. Our show “recital” at the end of season is planned for the first Saturday in June.
We allow new and returning students to join classes any time until the end of November. After that, we begin choreography for the show for all seasonal classes. New students may no longer enroll in these classes, however, we offer 10 week session classes from January – May for those getting a late start due to sports and other activities. Session classes are not included in our recital.
Monthly tuition averages between $15-$19 per class based on class size, level and length of class time.
On the 15th of each month, families receive a statement/bill for the upcoming month via email. These fees are due on the first of the upcoming month and will be automatically charged to the card on file in your account. Those who do not have a card on file must pay the fees before the 25th by placing a check or cash with student’s name in the payment box located at the desk.
A $10 late fee will be placed on your account if payment is not received by the 5th of each month, no exceptions.
We offer a 3% discount if you choose to pay the season in advance. Doing so requires that the full season is paid by October 1. Send a request via email for amount and instructions to pay in this way to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not offer family discounts at this time.
Class Changes & Withdrawls
We want you to be happy with your decision to join our family and will do whatever it takes to make your time with us enjoyable!
When you pick a class, we assume you will be staying through the season, but we understand life happens. If, for any reason, you are dissatisfied with your choice, we will take the necessary staps to find a more suitable class. If you find that dance just isn’t a good fit for you or your child, we will happily withdraw you from the class.
We do ask for a 30-day notice when withdrawing so that we have time to fill the spot.
Our recitals are held at the end of the season in June.
This is a great opportunity for our students to perform and share all that they have learned throughout the year with their family and frineds.
Our FORCE (K-12) performance is typically held on a Saturday afternoon in June and lasts 2-3 hours. We also have a mid-year winter showcase “Excerpts from the Nutcracker” in early December.
Our SPARKS program (Preschoolers) have their own special show. We want our little ones to have a positive stage experience. Our SPARKS Show is held the same weekend of the FORCE recital with a real stage. The difference is that we keep the house lights up and parade the students through the aisle, so that they can see their families before they perform. This gives them the confidence to perform at their very best.
Recital is optional at all about DANCE. We realize the stage isn’t for everyone, nor is it the only reason to learn dance. We assume our students will perform at our end of season shows but if this isn’t the case for you, simply notify us (in writing) prior to October 1. You will not be charged the recital fee on November 1.
The recital fee is $105 per class. Mighty Mites have a reduced fee as part of their costuming uses their uniform.
