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.
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.
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.
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.
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 $40 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.
