RATES & POLICIES
Class Enrollment: Classes are on a first-come, first-serve basis and are limited in size so that there is a low teacher-student ratio. If you are a current member, we recommend registering early online in order to secure a place in your desired class. If you are a new member with AODA, we recommend coming by the studio to register in person so that a staff member can best help you!
Registration/Recital Fee: There is an annual Registration Fee for all students, whether current or new. This is waived for all registrants who enrolled over the summer.
Tuition: Tuition is not based on number of classes per month. Tuition is based upon total number of classes in the entire dance year, which is then divided into equal monthly payments. Therefore, a full month's tuition is still due even if starting mid-month.
Tuition Due Date: Tuition is due the 1st of each month. To avoid a $10 late fee, payment must be received NLT the 10th. If payment has still not been received by the 10th, we will auto draft your owed amount (including the late fee) from your account.
Missed Classes: Missed classes are not refundable; however, they may be made up in a similar age-appropriate class. Just let the teacher know you are there for a make-up class. Missed classes must be made up by the end of the dance session and do not transfer into the next session.
Class Cancellation: Out of respect to our teachers and students, we ask you to commit to the whole dance session. We require a 30-day notice of any class cancellations which must be given to the office (not your teacher).
Costume Fee Policy: If you set up recurring payments, we will auto draft ALL of your costume fees on November 15, unless you have received approval from us in advance. If you are not set up on recurring payments, you are responsible to pay ALL of your costume fees by November 15. Starting December 1, a $10 late fee will be added to each costume, with a second $10 late fee applied on January 1. After January 31, no costumes will be ordered if payment has not been received by this point.
All payments must be up to date in order to receive your recital costume, participate in recital, and enroll in future classes.
