Important Tuition Policies
Tuition is based on an eleven month rate, not the number of classes in a month as this will vary from month to month. Students usually receive an average of 36-38 classes per season. Monthly tuition is not pro-rated or re-scheduled for missed classes made by students. If a class is cancelled due to teacher absence or illness, a makeup class will be scheduled. Classes missed cannot be made up once the contract season has begun as choreography is being set for each individual class.
Tuition is due before the 10th of each month (Aug-May). After the 10th, student accounts are charged a $15.00 late fee (per family).
Tuition due dates and fees remain the same regardless of holidays, breaks, or absences.
Tuition includes: All classes from August-May
Tuition does not include: Registration fee, Costume, Optional Events & Services (Ex. Recital DVD, Recital tickets, Apparel, Recital Pictures, and Camps.)
Tuition is non-refundable.
All withdrawals from class must be received PRIOR to the first of the month. If notification is not received prior to tuition being posted, the charge will remain on his/her account until it has been cleared. Dancers with an overdue balance from previous seasons can not register for future seasons without a clear account balance.
A $40.00 fee will be charged to your account for each returned check.
Accounts two months in arrears will be denied classes until the balance has been paid.
Families may choose to pre-pay for an entire season (Aug-May). Payments made in full will receive a 5% discount. These pre-payments are non-refundable payments as we make the proper accommodations to teach your dancers for the entirety of the semester and/or season.
HSDC's full season of dance may also be broken up into 11 monthly installments.
Families may choose to pay each installment by cash, check, or debit/credit card.
HSDC accepts Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.
**A 3% processing fee will be charged to all debit/credit card transactions.
**Cash payments must be in a sealed envelope and have the student's name and tuition amount visible.
Tuition is NON REFUNDABLE once it has been posted to the dancers’ account.
Dancers who wish to discontinue lessons for any reason must make proper arrangements BEFORE tuition is posted. If arrangements are not made before tuition is posted, the amount will remain on the dancers’ account indefinitely and must be cleared before he/she can re-join class.
