Tuition

AUG-MAY SESSION: Tuition for children’s classes is determined by hours of class taken per week and can be paid in 10 monthly installments*, in 2 separate payments (1 per semester) or in full upon registration. A non-refundable**$50 registration fee will be charged to your account upon acceptance of your registration. Each class will meet a total of 33 times, but the pay rate is set to cover 30 classes, to allow for up to 3 cancellations per class (in case of inclement weather or other issue) without the need to schedule a make-up class. Each monthly payment is 1 of 10 installment payments, not a payment for that particular month of classes, as the number of times a class meets each month will vary according to the DancEast calendar. A Showcase costume fee is $25 for each child for each class taken and will be due on January 1, 2020. Performance groups may wear their standard dance attire for DEW, DEE or DEC in lieu of a costume for Showcases and in these cases a costume fee may not apply. 

JAN-MAY SESSION: Tuition for children’s classes is determined by hours of class taken per week and can be paid in 5 monthly installments* or in full upon registration. A non-refundable**$50 registration fee will be charged to your account upon acceptance of your registration. Each class will meet a total of 17 times, but the pay rate is set to cover 15 classes, to allow for up to 2 cancellations per class (in case of inclement weather or other issue) without the need to schedule a make-up class. Each monthly payment is 1 of 5 installment payments, not a payment for that particular month of classes, as the number of times a class meets each month will vary according to the DancEast calendar. A Showcase costume fee is $25 for each child for each class taken and will be due on January 1, 2020. Performance groups may wear their standard dance attire for DEW, DEE or DEC in lieu of a costume for Showcases and in these cases a costume fee may not apply.

*Session installments may only be paid on the 1st of the month. When the 1st of the month is on a weekend or bank holiday, payment will post the prior business day. Any payment that is received 5 days late will incur a $15 late fee.

Policies

POLICY 1: NUMBER OF CLASSES PER SESSION

AUG-MAY SESSION: Each class will meet a total of 33 times. The pay rate is set to cover 30 classes, to allow for up to 3 cancellations per class (in case of inclement weather or other issue) without the need to schedule a make-up class. (This refers to the cancellation of the entire class by DancEast, not to individual absences; see Policy 2 regarding individual make-ups).  If additional class cancellations are necessary, make-up classes will be scheduled or that portion of tuition will be reimbursed. Exceptions may be made in cases of force majeure.

JAN-MAY SESSION: Each class will meet a total of 17 times. The pay rate is set to cover 15 classes, to allow for up to 2 cancellations per class (in case of inclement weather or other issue) without the need to schedule a make-up class. (This refers to the cancellation of the entire class by DancEast, not to individual absences; see Policy 2 regarding individual make-ups).  If additional class cancellations are necessary, make-up classes will be scheduled or that portion of tuition will be reimbursed. Exceptions may be made in cases of force majeure.

SUMMER SESSION: Each class will meet a total of 8 times. 

POLICY 2: INDIVIDUAL MAKE-UP CLASSES

If a child misses a class, he or she may “double up” the following week, attending his or her regular weekly class AND a comparable class. A make-up class should always be taken within two weeks of returning to DancEast. The studio should be contacted via e-mail at least 48 business hours prior to the desired make-up class, so the instructor can be notified. Only plan to attend that make-up class if you receive a confirmation e-mail response please. We are not able to accommodate every make-up class request, and we only accept make-up requests via e-mail. Please note how many classes can be made up each session: 2 September-December, 2 January-April and unlimited June-July. Make-up classes may not "carry over" from one dance session or from one semester to the next. No make-ups will be allowed during the month of August, as it hinders classes getting started. We also don't allow make-ups in May, as it hinders Showcase preparations.  

POLICY 3: MAY DANCE SHOWCASES

Cost for student participation in the Spring Showcases (venue, first costume, instructor pay, etc.) is included in the overall tuition rate.  The only additional costs associated with the Showcase will be ticket purchases and a costume fee for eacg class taken. 

POLICY 4: EARLY WITHDRAWAL FROM CLASSES

Enrollment in a class indicates a commitment to attend that class for the entire session. However, we do understand that students sometimes need to drop classes. We ask for notification VIA E-MAIL of intent to drop out of a class before the 15th of the final month of attendance. We can only honor drop requests sent via e-mail to info@danceast.org. We do not accept verbal drop requests. We can then refund the balance if tuition was paid in full or cease monthly withdrawals. For example, if your child will no longer attend classes as of December 1, please notify us by November 15, and we will refund the cost of classes for December-May or cease withdrawals as of December 1.

POLICY 5: LATE ENROLLMENT

We will consider accepting students in classes with available spots on a case-by-case basis. Tuition will be pro-rated accordingly. We do not pro-rate registration fees, and we do not pro-rate for summer enrollments (because the summer make-up policy is so generous). All registration confirmations will include information regarding tuition amounts and payment amounts.
