What To Know

Studio Policies

 

Tuition

Tuition is auto drafted and is debited on the 1st of every month.  A valid Credit card or bank EFT must be on file at time of registration. We do not send statements but all charges to your account may be viewed at any time via your parent portal.  Subsequently, there will be a $20 charge for non-sufficient funds or your credit card not being up to date. There will be a $25 late fee assessed on the 5th of the month for any outstanding balances. You are responsible to update the office with updated account information.  Your account must be current in order for the student to participate in classes, performances, conventions and competitions.

Registration

To register, simply log in or create a new account in our Parent Portal. Here you will choose your desired class/classes and sign the Core Dance Alliance Policies. There is a non-refundable annual registration fee of $65 before Labor Day, $80 before September 30th, and $95 thereafter through the end of the season.  This non-refundable fee is assessed each year when registering for classes and covers studio expenses related to the Fall/Spring session for which you are registering.

Class Withdrawal/Changes

If a student needs to withdraw from a class, the requirement is to give a written notice 30 days prior to the 1st of the following month. If the notice is not given 30 days prior to the next due date, tuition will continue to accumulate until the withdrawal form has been completed and submitted.  The account will be drafted and there will be no refunds granted. Outstanding balances, if any, need to be paid at that time. If a student finds it necessary to drop or switch a class, please notify the front desk. There will be no refunds given for classes unattended.

Attendance

Attendance plays a vital part in how well you or your child will progress in dancing.  As a child it can be frustrating to fall behind and frustrating to the rest of their classmates if there are excessive absences.  Please make every effort to be in class and to notify the studio by telephone or email if a student must miss a class. You may arrange a make-up class at that time; make-ups should be made within two weeks of the missed class. There is no credit given for absences.

Dress Attire

Please refer to our dress code for requirements for each of your dancer’s classes. No jewelry is to be worn for safety reasons and we will not be responsible for damage or loss.   Please label all of your dance items with child’s name.

Arriving/Departing

Students should arrive at least 5 minutes early for their class and be ready to enter the studio (shoes on, hair secured, restroom visit completed).  While on studio premises, students and siblings should conduct themselves in an orderly fashion.  Please be courteous to fellow parents in the waiting area and if you have other children please keep them seated.  Dancer's may use the dancer's lounge when not in class to the alleviate overcrowding in the waiting area.  Students are to remain inside the waiting area until picked up by a parent. If you are running late to pick up your dancer, please notify the front desk.  After 20 minutes following the conclusion of your dancers last class, there is a $1.00 late fee for every minute you are late picking up your dancer.

Annual Spring Recital

Our Recital will be held in June and detailed information will be available in Nov/Dec. Costume fees are due on and will be charged on October 15th and recital fees are due and charged on November 15th.  All Core Dance Alliance students are to perform in the annual Recital.  If you register after November 15th and would like to participate in Recital, the full amount must be paid, and participation is contingent on securing a costume for your dancer.  Please check with the front desk for details.
