Studio Policies

ENROLLMENT


Enrollment in class(es) requires full payment of a non-refundable annual $55 registration fee per student; $75 maximum per family.   TWDC reserves the right to cancel or combine classes with another appropriate class when enrollment is low.


TUITION

Tuition is due monthly to hold a student's place in class(es) and must be paid regardless of the student's attendance each month.  Some months will have five weeks of class while others have less; however, Monthly tuition remains the same regardless of the number of weeks in a month or holidays.  Tuition has been determined for the entire studio year and divided into monthly payments.
*Inquire with studio for sibling discounts

Monthly tuition is due on the 1st of the month and is based on total hours taken per week.  A $15 late fee will be automatically applied to tuition not received on or before the 5th of the month. A $15 transaction fee will be charged for any credit card that is declined.  Tuition is non refundable, non transferable between dancers, and not credited due to missed or dropped classes. For your convenience, your credit card on file will be auto-drafted for monthly tuition and other fees to include costume/competition fees and recital fees.  If you choose not to participate in automatic draft, please notify the TWDC staff; however, you are still required to provide a credit card to secure the account.  If no credit card is available, you must then provide first and last month's tuition.  TWDC reserves the right to apply any unpaid tuition or past due fees to the credit card on file.

Cash, Checks, Visa, Discover & MasterCard accepted.

MISSED CLASSES

Missed classes may be made up in any class of your choice as long as tuition is current.  No reductions or refunds are given for missed classes.  A student taking a makeup class must inform the instructor in order to avoid an added charge.  Make-ups need to be made in the month missed.

LEVEL PLACEMENT

For student safety, dancers are only permitted to register and attend classes at the level that the TWDC staff places them in.  No student or parent may promote themselves or their child into a higher level.  Parents may request an evaluation of student progress.  Students ARE permitted to transfer from one class to another at the same level without fees. Tuition will be prorated for classed ADDED mid-month.  Tuition will NOT be refunded for classes dropped mid-month.

WITHDRAWALS

Students are continually enrolled in classes from month to month unless THIRTY (30) days written notice is given.  If a student wishes to drop any or all of their classes, 30 days written notice must be received in our office or the following month's tuition will still apply.

DANCE ATTIRE

Proper dance attire is required for all dance classes. This enables the teacher to properly observe the students body movements for correct form and technique. Hair must be pulled off the face. Absolutely NO JEWELRY as it is a hazard.  Dance shoes should only be worn inside the studio. Street shoes are not permitted on the dance floor at any time. Please see TWDC dress code for detailed information.
