Tuition is based on an academic year. Students must register each year. The total number of classes for each level and discipline during the year will vary depending on the calendar and on school vacation days. Ballet Arts Studio does not follow any particular school district calendar so please refer to our Studio Calendar and note days on which the studio is closed.
An Installment Payment Plan of quarterly payments every eight or nine weeks is available for your convenience. Please remember that paying tuition in installments of every eight or nine weeks does not mean that there will be eight or nine classes at each class level during the installment period. Tuition is due on the first day of each installment period. Ballet Arts Studio does not mail installment payment notices so we ask parents to please mark the calendar. There is a $15.00 late fee for tuition received more than ten days after the due date.
Make-up classes may be available at the discretion of the Director and based upon the reason a class is missed and must be taken within the month that a class is missed. Make-up classes are generally not available for involvement with sports teams, school plays, personal vacations, family visits, or routine childhood illnesses. Please call or email the Studio if you would like to see if a make-up is available for a missed class.
Refunds including for tuition and Production fees, are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and are given at the discretion of the Director.
Tuition discounts of 10% are given beyond the first child registered in a family. The 10% discount will be given to the child taking fewer classes.
Production fees, master classes, private coaching, summer programs and special events are charged separately from class tuition payments.
