Costume Fees & Deposits
Costume Fee is $50.00 per class and is due on or before Dec. 1st with the balance being due on Feb. 1st. These costumes will be yours to keep. Classes not subject to this fee are: Jazz or Ballet Technique, Pre Pointe or Pointe, Acro and Adult classes. The same costume is used for festivals and recitals.
If costume fees are paid early, they are refundable in case a ‘Drop Class Request’ has been submitted before Dec. 1st. If a student withdrawals after Dec. 1st, you will be responsible for the remaining balance of the costume/s that has/have been ordered on your behalf as we are not able to return any costumes once they have been ordered.
Most classes have a price range of $75-$90 per costume and the competition classes ranging from $90-$125 per costume. Measuring for costumes is to be done during the first two weeks in November. It is mandatory for all students to be measured during these two weeks to ensure proper measurements are taken. The costume is ordered off a chart according to the students measurements. The costumes however are made as a standard size and may not fit each child perfectly. Students who wish to get a better fit may pay to have alterations done on their own.
You need to look at Oct 1st (out of town festival fees), Oct 15th (other festival fees) and Dec 1st (costume fees) as commitment dates for the year. On Oct 15th, if your child is entered into any festivals, these entry fees are due and as of Dec. 1st, you will be responsible for payments owing on costume deposits and costume balances. All of these fees are paid in advance on behalf of the student and are non-refundable. Dancers are held responsible for participating in group dance numbers, to the instructor for choreography and to the studio for the remainder of fees to year end.
Dancewear – All dance classes must wear the requirements listed per dance discipline.
Dress Rehearsal Fee is $5/family per rehearsal and is due April 1st, 2018. If a family is doing both, Festival DR and Recital DR, it would be $10. Note: Everyone needs to pay DR fees whether they show or not!
Festival Entry Fees – All Competition ‘C’ Levels are automatically entered into 1-4 festivals. All Recreational ‘R’ Levels are subject to teacher’s approval for possibly 1 festival. Out of town festival fees are usually due Oct 1. Billing date and payment for all other festival entries had to be changed from Nov 1 in previous years to Oct 15 in 2017 due to earlier festival registrations. If dropping a class(es) on or after Oct 15, you will be responsible for any festival entry fees that your child was to participate in due to festival payment being made on your behalf.
Year End Recital – All year round classes with the exception of Ballet & Jazz Technique and Pre Pointe will be performing at our year end recital and require ticket admission and costume plus stage make up. The same costume is used for festivals. Pointe & Acro classes will be performing at the recital but will only require a basic costume.
There are no refunds for missed classes due to being sick, injured or on holidays, etc. However, students do have the option of taking an extra class to make up for the lesson/s missed if another class at the same level is offered or the office has approved another level for the student. The cut-off date to attend another class would be Jan. 1st due to the classes starting their routines for the recital and festivals and would be confusing for the student if attending another class.
Withdrawals & Refunds
Students are enrolled in classes for the year. If dropping any class(es), a ‘Drop Class Request’ form must be filled out and submitted into the office before the 1st of the month in order to reflect on your account. This document may be obtained at the office or downloaded from our website. If you drop a class(es) on or after the 1st of the month, you will not receive a refund for that month and are responsible for those fees incurred. Please see our office hours under Contacts.
Note that registration fee and last month’s tuition is non-refundable with the exception if we cannot place the student in the appropriate class.
Other important billing due dates are Oct 1st and Oct 15th for Festival Entry Fees and Dec. 1st for Costume Deposits. On or after these dates you will be responsible for these fees incurred including the full costume balance after Dec. 1st date. Only by a Drop Class Request can you be entitled to receive a refund.
