We strive to create a positive relationship with each dance family by communicating, releasing newsletters and distributing updates. Please keep us informed of what we are doing right and what we can improve on! Constructive criticism and suggestions are always welcome. Let us know what we can do to make your dance experience better.
Tuition is calculated by the number of classes the entire family takes per week. We are a year-round progressive dance school and expect students to attend classes from September through May with optional summer classes. The tuition is an annual fee, which may be paid in full or in nine equal monthly installments from September through June. Each installment does not pay for any particular month, but rather contributes to the tuition for the whole school year.
Tuition: Tuition payments are due the first week of classes each month. Tuition is not adjusted for illness, vacations, or missed classes. Please see the attached tuition scale to determine your monthly amount due. Students who drop a class in the middle of a month will still be responsible for that month’s full tuition. CPAC season runs September 2017-June 2018, with the recital being held in June 2018. Students receive 33-36 weeks of classes. We divide the entire season into 9 monthly convenient payments . We accept Cash, Personal Checks, E-checking and Credit Cards (Visa, Master Card, and Discover). Preferred payment plan is Auto-Pay with a credit card or e-checking. Payments are payable to the Charmion Performing Arts Center or CPAC.
Students will be asked to sit out of class if their account is more than 30 days past due. Students are permitted to sit and watch, but cannot participate in class until account is current.
Number of Classes per family
Discounts have been incorporated into the calculation of the number of classes.
8 or more classes
Late Payments & Fees: If you anticipate a late tuition payment, arrangements must be made with Mr.Marcprior to tuition being late. All Accounts MUST be current for your child to receive their costumes and to be able to perform in the recital. $40 fee will be applied for all returned checks. Payment will need to be made in form of cash or money order if there is a return check.
Payment of class fees is required for the entire time period of September 1, 2017 thru May 2018 We understand that a student may be unable or choose to no longer continue taking class. A student may withdraw from class at any time and return at a later date IF SPACE IS AVAILABLE. Tuition and Registration Fee are non-refundable.
If a student withdrawals from class the process of withdrawal must be followed. Notice of withdrawal from class includes a written statement of withdrawal at least 30 days prior. There is a $25.00 per class withdrawal fee per student.
Monthly fees and late charges will accumulate to your account until this process is complete. If Costume fees have been collected and student withdraws, costume fees will not be refunded. Costumes are forfeited for any student that has withdrawn from the class. Please remember, nonattendance does not constitute withdrawal. You are responsible for tuition and all applicable fees until letter of withdrawal is received
Be Prepared for Class: All students are expected to dress in an appropriate manner. Please review our dress code for classes. Hair should be pulled back from the face and worn in a ponytail or bun for longer hair. Please use the restroom before class. Change into the proper dance shoes and be ready to enter the classroom before your teacher comes to get you for class.
Annual Recital is held in June. There is an annual recital, with two shows. In preparation of the recital there will be in-studio rehearsals, technical rehearsals and dress rehearsals. Costumes are purchased for our annual recital. Costume fees are due early in the season (October and November). Average cost for costumes are $65.00 per costume for each class taken. The Costume fee will include base costume, and extras for costume. Consider this when registering for classes. We try very hard to use combination costumes, to reduce the cost. Costumes are non-refundable and non-returnable. CPAC offers assistance with minor costume alterations. If more extensive alterations are needed, alteration fees could be charged. Any student requesting a costume replacement or exchanged for any reason will be charged the costume fee plus a restocking fee. The studio can NOT guarantee costumes can be ordered past the deadline.
