I have enrolled in a fitness/dance program of instruction offered at Central Studio. I have been advised and I understand the participation in exercise and conditioning activities, like any physical conditioning activity or exercise program, presents some unavoidable risk of injury, especially to people who have pre-existing injuries, illness, or medical disabilities. I understand that the use of exercise equipment also carries with it a risk of injury. I recognize that many changes may occur as a result of exercise lessons, including possible short term aggravation of some symptoms, feelings or tiredness, light-headedness, increased energy, mood changes, etc.
I also understand that a medical evaluation is advisable before commencing any program of physical conditioning or exercise. I have or will to keep Central Studio fully informed of any physical condition or disability that would prevent or limit my participation in an exercise or physical conditioning program. I acknowledge that, although the conditioning program I participate in may have substantial physical benefits, neither Central Studio nor its employees nor contractors are engaged in diagnosing or treating medical diseases or deficiencies.
I expressly assume all risks of my participation in a fitness/dance program of instruction conducted by Central Studio and waive any claim which I might otherwise bring against Central Studio,LLC, and its members, employees, trainees, independent contractors, nor any representative of this organization, as a result of injuries resulting from or relating to my participation in any dance/fitness programs of instruction.

Class Enrollment Fees
A $35 new student non-refundable registration fee is charged to each student. Students who pay full-year tuition will have the registration fee waived.
In order for your dancer to be officially enrolled in a class and have their spot held, your first-month tuition payment (September) need to be paid to the studio office or online. Students will not be placed in a class until the online registration form is received and the complete deposit is paid!
Monthly tuition is based on a nine-month dance semester with approximately four classes per month. For your convenience, tuition is payable monthly. There is no extra charge for months with five lessons nor is there a reduction or refund for any classes missed or holidays. We continue enrollment even after the start of the dance year, so some of our classes may reach our maximum class size and we will have to close enrollment for this class. For this reason, you may not sit out a month and then pick back up the next month.
Tuition is due the last day of every month and considered late after a seven day grace period. A Late fee of $15 is automatically added after the seven-day grace period. If the studio is closed or your dancer misses class, tuition is still due on the last day of the month. Tuition is non-refundable. You are responsible for monthly tuition until you notify the studio office of your intent to withdraw from a class. You are responsible for charges until emailed notification is received by the studio office from a parent or guardian. All tuition is based on the total number of classes taken per week. For your convenience, we have a new monthly-autopay service.
All checks returned are subject to a $45.00 bank fee. If your account is not cleared by the performance, your student will not be allowed to perform. We accept cash, check, debit, MasterCard, American Express and Visa.
