Tuition

 

The annual NON-REFUNDABLE

registration fee is $55 for the first family member and $25 for each additional family member.  Current students may only register for a new year if the previous year's account is paid in full.

Tuition may be paid in two ways:

  • MONTHLY (Due the 1st lesson of each month)

  • YEAR PAID IN FULL (Covers tuition for August-June. Includes a 10% discount if paid by the end of the first week of class.) Please notify the studio if you would like to take advantage of the 10% discount and pay the year in full so we can update your parent portal account.

Monthly tuition is due the 1st of each month. We accept cash, checks and credit cards.  We do not send out monthly bills. It is the account holder's responsibility to pay in a timely manner.  A late fee of $15 will be assessed after the 15th of the month (without exception) and there will be a $30 returned check fee.

 

Payments may be made at the studio, by signing up for autopay, or online via our Parent Portal at https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/

earlecobbdancestudio .  Autopay is an option for everyone and can be set up through the parent portal. Tuition is taken out on the first of the month through autopay. Dazzlers are required to enroll in autopay, and their tuition will be charged on the first of the month, with Dazzler payments being charged on the 15th of the month.

Please keep in mind, we will not give refunds for any reason. We will apply a credit to your account if you need to drop a class, but no refunds will be given.

You must notify the studio in writing if you plan to withdraw, or tuition will continue to accrue on the account.
THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS!

 

There is no tuition reduction or refund for classes missed or days we are closed.  Students are allowed and encouraged to make up missed classes within the same semester. 

Parent Responsibilities

 

It is the responsibility of the parent or adult student to be aware of all studio activities, such as recitals, picture days, extra rehearsals, and dates that the studio will be open or closed.  The studio will post all such notices in the lobby and on our website, via email, as well as sending notices home with the students.  It is the parent's responsibility to regularly check these locations to ensure they are informed, and to notify the studio of any address, email, or phone number changes.  One adult per family will be expected to volunteer in some capacity for the Winter Showcase or June Recital.  Attendance at Dress Rehearsal is MANDATORY for participation in the June Recital.
