Student Handbook

General Payment Policies

Payment Policies: Tuition is due the 1st lesson of the month.  Our tuition is calculated on a yearly basis subdivided into monthly installments for your convenience. We do not charge more for a month with five lessons nor do we charge less for months with less than four. A $35.00 charge will be assessed to any NSF (bounced) check.  

Notice of class withdrawal: Any student wishing to withdraw from a class must notify the studio by the 1st of the month or they are still liable for tuition for that month.  Notification needs to be in writing, by phone, or at the front desk. Please understand that notifying instructors is not sufficient due to the fact that instructors are not involved in any record keeping as it applies to billing.  

Withdrawing after the 1st of December: We assume anyone enrolled in class after December 1st has committed to performing at the Spring Recital, and we will at that date be in the process of ordering costumes for them, unless otherwise notified in writing before December 1st. (This also applies to adults who are taking classes but do not wish to perform.). Costumes are not returnable and are therefore non-refundable.  Consequently, dancers withdrawing after December 1st will still be liable for their costume costs.

Authorization for Payment- 2 Ways to Pay

Payment Option #1:

Monthly Automatic Payments
You authorize regularly scheduled payments to be made. Your payments will be made automatically each session throughout the class season. Proof of payment will appear on your account. If we have an e-mail address for you and you have not opted out of e-mail communications, you'll receive an e-mail notification any time a payment is processed. The authority you give to automatically charge your payment information on-file will remain in effect until you notify us in writing to terminate the authorization. Payments will be deducted on the 5th of each month.  If for whatever reason, payments cannot be processed to your payment information on-file and your account balance remains overdue, your enrollment in classes will be cancelled.

Payment Option #2

Card on File. Client has until 15th of the month to pay by check or cash after the 15th credit card on file will be charged.

 I acknowledge that I am responsible to make timely payments of my balances due on my Grande Finale Dance Studio account. I may pay this online, at the front desk or by mail. I further acknowledge that if my payment is not received on or before the due date (the 15th of each month), I authorize Grande Finale Dance Studio to initiate electronic payments for any balances due on my account throughout the September through May 2018 year PLUS an administrative late fee of $5.00. Payments will be processed with the payment information on-file at Grande Finale Dance Studio. The authority you give to automatically charge your payment information on file after the 15th of each month will remain in effect until you notify us in writing to terminate the authorization. If for whatever reason, payments cannot be processed to your payment information on-file and your account balance remains overdue, your enrollment in classes will be cancelled.
