2023-2024 REGISTRATION AND TUITION PAYMENT INFORMATION
PAYMENT POLICIES: That’s Dancing! Studio tuition is based on an entire season of dance. Our season runs from August 21, 2023 – May 23, 2024. All dancers are required to pay for the entire season. If you enroll mid-season we will prorate your tuition based on when you begin dancing with us. Tuition is not based on the number of classes in a month or on attendance. There is NO refund for missed classes, but make-up classes are provided upon request.
You may pay the entire season in full or pay it in monthly installments. At the time of registration, a deposit equal to one half of your monthly installments will be due. This deposit and registration fee are non-refundable. The other installments are due the 1st of each month, September 2023 – May 2024, and will be automatically billed to the card on file on the 1st of each month.
All monthly tuition payments, Year-End Show costume payments, and Year-End show fees will be auto-drafted to the card on file. You will be emailed a receipt after your tuition is auto-drafted. Year-End Show costume payments will be auto-drafted on December 11, 2023. In early Spring of 2024, year-end show fee amount of $40/dancer will be billed.
If you opt to pay the entire season in full prior to August 21, 2023, you will receive a 5% discount. Please note: If you pay your dancer’s tuition for the full year and then withdraw from classes for any reason (loss of interest, school obligations, injury, illness, etc.), a 30% penalty will be applied to your refund for the remainder of the year. We suggest you only pay the year in full if you are 100% confident your dancer will participate fully in the entire season. If for any reason we provide a tuition discount during one or more months of the season, this discount will not apply to prepayments. No further discounts are available.
RECEIPT OF PAYMENT: You will not receive a billing statement or invoice prior to any charges, however, you will receive a receipt of payment each month after the auto-draft.
LATE FEE: If your card on file is declined, an alternate payment must be made within 48 hours. A $15 Late Fee will be charged for any payments not made in full by the 5th of the month. This includes declined charges for cards on file for any reason.
RETURNED CHECK FEE: $35
