An active debit or credit card must be on file at all times. All accounts will be "auto billed" on the 1st of the month for tuition. Accounts will be billed on exact due dates for extra charges (events, private lessons, dance-wear, etc). A receipt will be emailed to the primary email on the account. (There is no additional fee for this service.)
If your card declines, you will have until the 5th of each month to provide an alternative payment. A late fee of $35.00 will be added to payment received after the 5th.If payment is still not received after the 5th day, a $5.00 late fee will be added every additional 5 days on top of the $35.00 initial late fee. Failure to provide payment by the 1st of the following month, will result in student not being able to attend class or perform in year-end recital.
Your card will continue to be billed, unless we receive a "Withdrawal" form to remove student from class roster 10 days before the 1st of the month. No exceptions! Failure to turn in a "Withdrawal" form will result in continued tuition charges & late fees, until we receive a completed form or letter. Any outstanding fees on the account must be paid in full upon withdrawal.
Tuition remains the same each month regardless of whether it is a 5-week month or a shortened month due to holidays. Tuition is not pro-rated, refunded or credited for missed classes or holidays. Any student who misses a class may make-up classes in other technique classes comparable for their age/skill level after signing up through the front desk.
If your child is absent due to any reason (e.g. illness, vacation, or other activities) payment is still run on the 1st to continue to hold the spot in class for the student. There are no refunds for missed classes.
A $25 return check fee will be added on all insufficient fund checks.
PAYMENT SPLIT BETWEEN PARENTS:
If parents are splitting payment for their student(s), written or spoken consent must be given from BOTH parents as to whom is paying what portion of the charges. Any changes that will affect payment must be approved by both parties, who must each inform our office manager of such changes. It is the responsibility of the parents to figure out payment plans, and not that of the BC Dance staff.
All accounts must be completely paid off by December 10, 2018 for students to be able to participate in The Nutcracker and by June 10, 2019 for students to be able to participate in the end-of-the year recital.
If you decide to take time off, the re-registration fee within the season is $15.
