2016-17 Studio Tuition Policies & Contract

Parents are responsible for reading and following the policies below.

  • Tuition will be posted 5 days prior to the 1st of the month. Tuition is due by the 10th of each month. A Credit Card is required on file. Your Credit Card on file will be automatically charged if payment is not made 30 days after tuition is posted and another method of payment was not received prior. If Credit Card is declined a $25 fee will be incurred and a paper statement mailed out. Any accounts past due 60 days will suspend all activities at Bobbie’s until account is resolved. We understand difficulties and hardships so please remember that communication is key.
  • There is a $25 fee for any returned checks. NSF checks must be replaced within 10 days of notification.
  • Bobbie’s School of Performing Arts has the right to refuse service if outstanding balances have not been reconciled.
  • Tuition is figured on a 10-month school year (September – June) where holidays are taken in to account.  Tuition will be the same every month – unless there’s a change in the dancer’s schedule.
  • We do not refund tuition or give credit for missed classes. An account is only prorated when a student adds or drops a class in order to add mid-month. If a student misses a class, it is his/her responsibility to attend a make-up class in a comparable or lower level within 2 months of the absence. If a class is cancelled, it is the studio’s responsibility to offer a make-up class or prorate tuition for that particular month.
  • Parents must fill out a blue Class Change form if any changes are made to the original schedule (Add, Drop, Withdraw) as filled out by you at the time of registration. Official notification of class changed is required. You will be held responsible for the original tuition amount until ALL required paperwork has been received.

Participation in the end of the year Recital is Expected

Our program concludes with a Recital showcasing each class to the best of their ability. This performance is an important part of their dance experience. Recital participation exceptions will be considered; however, a written request must be turned in to the Front Desk by January 15th. You must notify the front desk no later than January 15th to be exempt from recital costume charges. If enrollment occurs after January, you must notify the front desk within two weeks from the start date if you will be unable to participate in the recital.

Recital Fees are non-refundable.
