There will be a $20 registration fee (each additional family member is $5) assessed at the time of enrollment. This fee reserves the student's place in class, and is non-refundable. Current tuition rates are posted on our website. Tuition is a 45-week fee divided into 10 equal monthly payments (August-May). The tuition is determined by the amount of classes taken by the entire family, not each individual student. Please note, tuition fees are due on the FIRST lesson of every month, and are the same, whether or not there are 3, 4 or 5 lessons in any given month. We DO NOT prorate tuition, or provide refunds for classes missed. We will, however, allow the student to attend a make-up lesson in a like class. If you decide to drop a class, please provide a two-week notice. If payment is not received by the 10th of each month, a $15 late fee will be added to the account.
Studio Seven Center for Creative Studies takes payment via cash, check or credit/debit card. Checks may be made payable to Studio Seven, and a $25 fee will be assessed for all returned checks. Receipts are available from the receptionist, or may be e-mailed to you. To avoid potential late fees, it is suggested that you set up an automatic payment, should your bank offer this service. The tuition fee is NOT inclusive of dance apparel, footwear, costume costs, art/music supplies, accessories, recital fees or tickets; these are additional expenses.
It is essential for students to be in proper dance attire when participating. Please see the class description page on our website for specific requirements for each class. Acceptable clothing includes: tights, leotards, dance skirts, dance pants, leggings, and non-baggy t-shirts and sweatpants. If the student is wearing a leotard, shorts, and/or a skirt, dance tights are required. Bare midriffs are NOT allowed. Hair must be pulled back and completely off of the face (for ballet, a bun is required). Aside from small stud earrings, no jewelry is permitted while dancing. Studio Seven Center for Creative Studies is NOT responsible for lost or stolen belongings, so please ensure that personal items are left at home. Proper footwear is critical both for technique, and in the prevention of injury. Suggested footwear and tights are available for purchase in studio. Satin slippers are NOT approved footwear.
