Tuition & Fees:
Tuition is based on a monthly rate beginning in August and ending in June (40 weeks). Tuition is the same regardless of number of lessons in any given month. Five week months compensate for classes not held due to holidays. Studio schedule will follow local ISD schedule for closings and holidays. If a situation occurs where less than 3 classes are held in a month, the director will schedule a "make-up" class day for those particular classes.
Tuition is due the 1st of each month. Payments made after the 10th of the month will include a $10.00 late fee, after 20th $20.00. Auto-draft can also be set up on your account for your convenience. All returned checks will be subject to pay $25.00 overdraft fee and will be required to continue on a cash or credit card basis. Tuition will not be pro-rated for any reason during the month, unless director discretion.
All new students are required to pay a $55.00 registration fee and complete the online registration before the student can be added to the class. Current students will be allowed to register at the “early bird” date on July 1st for $45.00. Payment of the Registration Fee secures your child's spot in that class. Once classes begin and a/the student's registration has NOT been paid, the student will be dropped from the class. If student is taking multiple classes, they will only be required to pay one registration fee. Siblings and or parents in same household will be given a discount on monthly tuition, but not registration fees.
Students who wish to DROP from their enrolled performing class or classes at I AM DANCE, may do so at any given time. However to ensure that the teacher/staff can properly reset choreography and spacing, a DROP fee will be enforced & required along with a written statement via email to the studio director, stating the reasons, circumstances, any and all issues, pertaining to or reasons causing, etc. The student will NOT be dropped from I AM DANCE without the written consent from the parent/guardian, and will be subject to fees & penalties. If Costumes were purchased prior for the student, the drop fee ensures the student will receive both costumes at the end of the dance season. (After Recital - June).
