COSTUME FEES

A costume deposit of $80 + GST per class (ages 3-5) and $95 + GST for all other classes will be charged on November 15th and is NON-REFUNDABLE after that date. All registrations after November 15th will be subject to an additional $20 costume fee. Upon receiving costumes in the winter, any balances will be due- please note we try our absolute best to keep costumes as close tot he $85/$95 mark as possible- this is not always possible, especially for our older dancers! Dancers taking two ballet classes will only be charged for one costume. Competitive choreography classes will use the same costume as their technique class i.e.). Ballet 4 and Pre Inter ballet choreo will have the same costume. Costumes will be sent home in the late winter/ spring.

Sessional classes do not require a costume.

PAYMENT OPTIONS

Fees can be paid monthly, or the full year upfront. Monthly fees will be paid by automatic credit card withdrawal (fees will be debited from your credit card on the 1st of each month – there is not an option to pay on a different day).

OVERDUE ACCOUNTS

Please note a late fee of $25.00 will be applied to any returned cheques or payments that cannot be processed and all payments10 days late or more- no exceptions!). Overdue accounts will be subject to a 10% charge of the total balance after 30 days. If an account becomes two months overdue the dancer will not be able to attend their classes and their parents will be called to pick them up.

CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS

The first month’s tuition, plus the registration fee are non refundable. Costume fees are also non refundable.

A full month’s notice of cancellation in writing (or email) is required to withdraw from a full year class. There will be no refunds issued after March 1st as show preparations will be underway. No exceptions will be made unless for medical reasons.

Sessional classes are non-refundable after the first class.

Costume fees are non-refundable after November 15th.

If the studio needs to be closed due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather, we will do our best to schedule a make up class if your class allotment falls below the 32 guaranteed classes per season. Should the studio need to close for an extended period of time ie) pandemic or other event out of our control, classes for that month will be completed virtually and refunds will not be issued. Families will have the choice to continue in virtual classes or withdraw for any subsequent months.

Summer camps will be subject to a 25% administrative fee if cancelled up to 14 days in advance. If cancelled less than 14 days in advance, 50% of the fee will be withheld.
