POLICIES


REGISTRATION
Students may register by mail or in person. New students will pay a NONREFUNDABLE $40 registration fee. Returning students will pay a $25 registration fee. Any student withdrawing from classes should notify the office immediately. Unless DC-SPA is officially notified, all registered students will remain on the billing cycle.

TUITION
Payment is due on the first of each month. A late fee of $10 will be added to tuition after the fifth of the month. Tuition is computed on a yearly average. Holidays are included. The Dance Center does NOT allow students to pay by the class on a continuing basis. All classes are subject to cancellation due to enrollment consideration. NOTE: there will be a $25 NSF charge on all returned checks.

PLACEMENT
Each student will be placed according to his or her ability; NOT by age or years of training. Students will be evaluated for final placement during his/her first month oat the school and thereafter will change levels only at the discretion of the instructors.

MAKE-UP CLASSES
Students should make every effort to attend all classes for which they are enrolled. Missed classes must be made up within 30 days of absence.


OTHER FEES
There are 2 times during the school year when recital fees are charged - October and February. The amount charged depends on the number of classes/dances in which your child will perform. These fees are charged in $75 increments and cover costumes, headpieces and/or props and partial payment for the rental of the theater. There is a $30 mandatory video fee that is charged in March. Tickets are sold for the performance and go on sale about a month before recital. All fees must be paid (including late fees) in order for your child to participate in the recital.
