The Dance Centre Liability Release | TDC-20-21Handbook | Media Release Form
10% Discount if tuition is paid in full for the year at the time of registration, non-refundable. If in the event classes must be moved into a Zoom model, no credits or refunds will be given.
The Dance Centre tuition is charged by the year and broken into 9 monthly payments, based on a total of 28 lessons for the season, from October through June unless you prefer to pay the year in full at registration. Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. It is mandatory for a credit card to be placed on file through the Dance Studio Pro site, for all students in case of lack of payment. The card is placed on file by enrollment in tuition auto pay through the parent portal. Contact us to learn more.
As long as tuition is paid by the first of the month, your card will not be charged. All credit and debit card payments are processed through DSP Merchants and are automatically charged an additional 3% convenience fee for this service. An alternative is a 0.75% ACH bank withdrawal option for payments and autopay. Tuition must be paid before a student can enter class each month. See below for Tuition Discount Opportunities…

Aerial Silks Tuition
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and safety precautions, aerial silks group classes are limited to private or semi-private lessons with only 4-5 students per class depending on the student’s ages and ability level. Silks equipment is for single student use only on a daily basis. With these restrictions, silks cannot be included in regular pricing and can only be purchased in 4 week sessions, billed separately from regular tuition in which no other discounts can apply. The $50 once per year registration fee still applies to register for your first silks sessions at any point in the season if you are taking no other classes at TDC and have not paid the yearly registration fee for the 2020-2021 season.
$100 for 1 hour per week semi-private group lesson 4 week session
$80 for 45 min per week semi-private group lesson 4 week session

If we are forced to go virtual at any point during a 4 week session, only TDC credit will be given for any missed silks classes, as silks will not go virtual. If a student misses a class due to illness or injury-a make up lesson will be made available within 3 months of the missed lesson.

*** Guest teacher choreographers rates will vary
There is a 24 hour cancellation policy on all private lessons. Any private lessons that do not show up for their lesson and are not canceled 24 hours in advance by the customer via email to the Director will be charged for that lesson.
Tuition Late Fee Policy
Late fee of $25 will automatically be added to tuition 10 days past the 1st of the month. A $35 fee will be imposed on your account for all checks returned from the bank as well as habitual auto pay failures. Habitual autopay failures will be treated the same as returned or bounced checks with a $35 charge for all failed auto payment processing after the first offense. It is your responsibility to check your credit card on file or bank account before the first of the month for sufficient funds and validity. After late fees and bank failure fees, there will be an additional $50 charge for all credit card disputes, if the dispute is won by TDC.
If the payment is disputed through the credit card company, rather than resolving the issue with the Director of the studio directly, the customer will no longer be able to attend classes at TDC with no refunds for any monies paid.
