The 2019-2020 dance season will consist of 10 months of classes scheduled from August 12, 2019 - May 23, 2020. For your convenience, tuition has been divided into nine equal payments from August 2019 through May 2020, regardless of varying days in months. No tuition installment is due for December 2019. The tuition fee is due even when the studio is closed (e.g.: Sundays, holidays, breaks, or inclement weather). Payment can be made via the SSB Parent Portal at anytime. SSB follows the Forsyth County School System and guarantees 34 lessons per season, allowing for Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks.
SSB does not send out monthly statements. All tuition installments are non-refundable. Any attendance during a month constitutes a full month's tuition installment. Monthly tuition installments are mandatory until SSB has received a written request of cancellation (see Withdrawal Policy). No refunds will be made for unattended lessons. Classes missed due to illness, injury, or other personal reasons may be made up within the school year. Please visit the Downloads page of the SSB website for suitable make up classes to attend. Contact the front desk to schedule a make up class.
When signing up for SSB summer camps, there is no membership fee. A 50% payment is due to secure your dancer's place in each SSB summer camp. The remaining balance of the summer camp is due June 1, 2019. Summer camp payments are non-refundable after May 1, 2019, but may be transferable to another summer camp, if space is available.
All paid Summer Camp, Membership, Costume, and Recital Fees are non-refundable. All tuition payments must be completed by May 7th, 2020, and all accounts must be paid in full in order for the dancer(s) to participate in the annual recital.
