Payment PolicyOur annual season is thirty-six weeks divided into ten equal monthly payments (September through June). Tuition is billed on the 1st of every month. Monthly tuition remains the same whether it is a long (5 week) or short (3 week) month and regardless of absences. There are no tuition refunds for withdrawal from class during any given month. If the studio is notified, there are exceptions for prolonged illness or injury. Make-up classes are available. Our Unlimited Program is designed for students who love to dance, or wish to make dance as a career. This gives dancers more opportunities to perform and compete as well as attending workshops, master classes and conventions throughout the year. This program develops the quality of dancers for which our studio has become known. NOTE: Payments made after the 15th of each month will be charged a $10.00 late fee. Checks returned for insufficient funds will be charged a $20.00 service fee and declined credit cards will be charged at $20.00 service fee if not settled by the 15th of the current billed month. Tuition that is two months behind will result in termination of class. A re-registration fee of $15.00 would then apply. Annual one time family (non-refundable) registration fee: $35.00
There are multiple scholarships that may be applied for. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need. Contact the office for information, application and deadlines.
A non-refundable costume deposit of $50.00 PER costume will be due on or before November 15. After after November 15th, if you are only purchasing one costume, full payment is be due on the date of purchase. Once show costumes have been ordered, you are responsible for full costume payment even if the student withdrawals from class prior to the performance. Costume companies are general in size and are not custom fit. You are responsible for minor alterations, i.e. hem, tucks, sewing straps. This is not an expense that SGDC pays. Costumes are given to students only after the costume balance has been paid in full.
