REFUNDS & CREDITS

NO REFUNDS will be issued for paid tuition.  

If a dancer misses classes due to Covid or other health-related illnesses refunds or credits will not be issued and dancers can take their make-up classes upon return to the studio. 

 

Account credits may be applied to dancers accounts depending on circumstance and approval by studio owners.

 

To withdraw or drop from any classes dancers will be required to send a written notice (email is acceptable) to the studio front desk. Upon approval for a refund the remaining tuition amount will be issued and we will deduct a 6% fee administrative fee. If a client requests a charge back from their credit card without the studio's approval, we will immediately respond with this policy to ensure that the refund is NOT issued and will work with the client to resolve any issues. 

NO tuition refunds will be issued for any public health closures. If the studio is forced to close due to state and local health guidelines we will work to schedule classes online or outdoors. If a dancer is unable to continue classes, 80% of remaining tuition fees will be applied as a credit to your studio account, 20% will be withheld for studio admin fees.  The credit is valid through the current dance season or when the studio returns. 

CLASS CANCELLATIONS

If a class is unexpectedly canceled by the studio, a credit will be placed on your account to use for another class.

 

If an outdoor class is canceled due to weather, the dancer is welcome to do a make-up class during the semester. If the dancer is unable to complete their makeup class a credit will be issued to the dancer's account. No refunds will be issued for canceled classes.

 

MAKE-UP CLASSES

If a dancer misses a class they can do a make-up within the current semester. Due to the Covid class limitations all make-up classes must be scheduled and approved at least 24 hours in advance. Make-up classes will not rollover to the next semester.  Make-up class requests must be sent a minimum of 24 hours in advance. An email confirmation will be sent for all make-up classes.
