A non-refundable registration fee of $35 for the first student and an $10.00 for each additional student of the same immediate family is required annually at the time of enrollment. Tuition is also non refundable. Monthly tuition payments are based on a ten month calendar and are not payable on a per-class basis.
There is a $15.00 fee for any late payments for returned checks or credit cards due to insufficient funds. If you choose to pay by check or cash an additional $8.00 handling fee will be applied to your account. Please ensure your student's full name is in the memo section of the check before mailing it. If you pay in cash, you must always get a receipt from the receptionist.
By signing this document I accept all financial responsibility for all services and products provided to my student by the Pure Movement Dance Institute (PMDI). I am aware that Fall - Spring tuition is based on a ten month payment schedule, the first payment being due on the 1st or 15th of the month in which my student starts class (per my selection) until the conclusion of classes in May 2019. If I choose to pay by check, I understand that all payments are due on the 1st of the month and any payments received after the due date will receive a $15.00 late fee. Regardless of payment method I have the right to discontinue class at anytime, however, I am also aware that all fees paid prior to or in advance of my cancellation are non-refundable and I may be held responsible for any balance due on costumes that have already been ordered. I am eligible to have a late fee excused once per year, per family upon completion of a late fee waiver at the studio office. I also understand that it is my responsibility to ensure that all tuition and fees are paid on time regardless of days of the week, holidays, school closings, weather or mail service.
Automated Payment Plan:
Registration Fees are withdrawn at the time of registration.
Tuition Payments 1-10 are withdrawn August 2018- May 2019. A monthly $10.00 payment will be deducted from my account for each costume required for my class. In the event that I have a costume balance in May of 2019, I authorize PMDI to make a one-time charge to my account for the remaining funds. In the event that I have a credit I understand that PMDI will apply this credit to my tuition.
There is a $15.00 fee for any late payments or returned checks or credit cards due to insufficient funds. I understand that if I choose to pay by check or cash an additional $8.00 handling fee will be applied to my account. It is my responsibility to ensure my student's full name is in the memo section of the check before mailing it. I also understand that if I pay in cash, I must always get a receipt from the receptionist.
In addition I acknowledge that I have been informed that all financial information I provide is kept securely through a PCI (payment card industry) compliant merchant system.
I authorize PMDI to debit my account as identified above to the terms stated here. This authorization shall remain in effect until PMDI receives a written notification form of intent to terminate at such time and in such manner as to afford PMDI a reasonable opportunity to act (Minimum 30 days).
I understand that if the total amount owed to PMDI is increased, I authorize this plan to continue as long as the payment amount remains unchanged until the amount owed PMDI is paid off, or unless the plan is terminated earlier by me as stated above. I understand any added amount can be applied for with a new authorization form.
All other changes such as payment amount, frequency, or account numbers change, will require me to update my information with PMDI 15 days prior to any change being implemented. I understand that this payment plan may be cancelled by PMDI due to ISF (Insufficient funds). I will be liable to pay an ISF fee of $15.00, which may be automatically debited for each ISF.
I represent and warrant that I am authorized to execute this payment authorization for the purpose of implementing this payment plan. I indemnify and hold PMDI harmless from damage, loss or claim resulting from all authorized actions hereunder.

There are no refunds for missed classes or costumes.
Parent's Responsibility & Guardians: It is the responsibility of the parent, guardian or adult students to be aware of all school activities such as visitation day, dates the school is closed, when tuition is due and all schedules for picture day, dress rehearsal, recital and all other special events and performances.

Students under the age of six may not be dropped off in front of the studio or be left unattended in the lobby. Students over the age of six are not to be left at the school for excessive amounts of time before or after class. If students are left at the studio and PMDI staff are required to supervise them the studio reserves the right to charge a babysitting fee of $8.00 for every 30 minutes.
Recital: The school is not responsible for size changes after measurements and orders have been taken. Costumes cannot be exchanged or returned once they are ordered. Tickets will be sold several weeks before the recital and due to fire codes all in attendance must purchase a ticket.
