*Once classes begin for the season, no refunds and no cash credits will be given for any reason. Prior to the start of classes, if a registered student finds that they must withdraw with good reason, a refund of tuition minus the $25/child registration fee will be given. If any of the classes for which the student was registered were FULL, there will be an additional fee of $40 charged to your account per full class. This fee is charged because ETD Dance Studio will have turned away enrollments. (This does not apply to Sizzling Summer Camp, as tuition is due in full at the time of registration and no refunds will be given.)
*Tuition: Payments are due the 1st Saturday of every month, payable by cash, check, money order, or credit card (Sizzling Summer Camps/Workshops and tuition are due in full at the time of registration). Tuition payments not received by the 8th of the month, will automatically be charged a $10.00 late fee.
*A $35.00 fee will be charged for returned checks. If a check should be returned, only cash, credit card or certified funds will be the accepted form of payment from that point forward.
**Past Due Accounts: For accounts with a balance after 30 days, student(s) will not be able to attend classes and must have a meeting with the front office manager to establish a payment plan for the rest of the year. If no contact or payment arrangement has been made with the front office, your card on file will automatically be charged for the full balance due. (This does not apply to Summer Camp participants, as your tuition is due in full at registration)
*Class Schedules: No schedule changes can be made without first meeting with the ETD Dance Studio Director. Schedule changes made after the season has begun will incur a $15-$40 fee depending on the number of classes involved, except where the change is required due to a revised placement level by the Director.
*Dropping a class or withdrawing from the ETD Dance Studio/ETD Online Academy requires a two-week written notification to ETD Dance Studio and tuition billing will continue until such notification is received. (This does not apply to Sizzling Summer Camp , as tuition is due at the time of registration and no refunds will be given)
