STUDIO POLICIES

TUITION

Tuition is due on the 1st of each month payable via cash, check, or credit card (we do not utilize autopay). A late fee of $10.00 will be charged after the 15th. A fee of $25.00 will be charged for any returned check. NO REFUNDS OR DEDUCTIONS for missed classes; you may schedule a make‐up class at the front desk within 30 days of missed class. Please see a member of our staff for pricing on Adult Classes.


We offer the following tuition discounts for additional family members (higher tuition prevails, no other discounts apply):

GENERAL

* No gum or food permitted in the dance room. Water is permitted.
* All classes are subject to change and are subject to a minimum size requirement.
* No parents or visitors are allowed in the classroom during instruction without invitation.
* If student arrives 15 minutes afer start of class, it is up to the discretion of the teacher if the student will be able to participate or will be asked to sit and watch class, due to lack of warmed muscles to prevent injury to the student.
* Students are expected to treat the staff and facility with respect. Please help keep our studio clean.

LEVEL PLACEMENT

All level placements are at the discretion of the teaching staff at BE School of Dance and subject to the approval of the School Director. New students should schedule a placement class with a member of our front desk staff; placement classes are offered from our existing schedule and will be with other students of similar dance training. The placement class fee is $10 and is valid for first class only (additional classes may be tried at drop‐in rates).

PICK UPS

While we understand that life and mistakes happen, it is very important that your child is picked up promptly after class and rehearsal, especially if it is the last one of the day. It is very unsettling for one child to be left when all the other parents have picked up their children. If any Ballet Etudes volunteers or staff must stay with your child after class or rehearsal ends, there will be a $10.00 service fee after the first 10 minutes and a $5.00 fee for every 5 minutes after that, the fee will be assessed and billed to the parent’s account. Please call the studio to notify the office if you will be late due to an emergency. 

REGISTRATION

Class registration is handled at our front desk on the first day of classes attended. The annual registration fee is $25.00 per student; the annual fee covers the period of August through July.
