Our main ballet year is divided into four quarters of nine weeks each, followed by an optional 9-week summer session. Tuition is due the first class of each term, though tuition for more than one lesson a week is payable in two payments due on the first and fifth classes. New students starting mid-term may pay the single-class fee for the appropriate number of classes.
Invoices are not mailed, but if a payment is not received, a statement will be sent which may include a $5 late fee. There is a family discount of ten percent for any family members after the first. There is an annual fall registration fee of $30 per student, $20 for the second, with no charge for more.
Because our teachers' salaries depend on an element of constancy in attendance, there are no refunds for tuition once classes have begun; however, in the rare case of injury, we are most happy to grant a credit toward future classes.
Missed Classes may be made up by attending a comparable level class. For the most part classes should be made up within the quarter they are missed. It is not necessary to notify the teachers ahead of time.
Observations are welcome, but please ask permission from the teacher. With young children at the beginning of the year, a teacher may request no observations so that the class may develop better focus and cohesion.
