Footnotes Studio Rules

Tuition

Tuition is $55 per month for the 1st class and $30 each additional class. Tuition remains the same whether it is a long (5 lesson) month or a short (3 lesson) month and regardless of absences. Tuition is not prorated for Holiday months. Tuition is based on a 10 month season and payments are broken down monthly.

TUITION IS DUE THE 1ST OF EVERY MONTH. Tuition may be paid by cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. A late fee of $10 will be added to your account on the 7th of the month. If no payment has been made by the 10th of the month, that month's balance - along with the late fee - will automatically be charged to a credit card which is required at registration. Cash payments are encouraged to be the exact amount as we usually do not have change. Students with delinquent accounts of 30 days or more will be suspended until tuition is received in full. Accounts must be paid in full to participate in the recital or to register for a new dance season.

NSF Payments

Footnotes Dance & Music Studio will automatically debit my credit card on file for the amount of any NSF paper check transaction plus a $35 NSF fee. If you are signed up for automatic billing, there is a $35 fee for a declined credit card transaction that will be automatically added to your account. Please keep all cards on file current.

Fees

There is only 1 additional fee outside of our monthly tuition, the recital fee of $185 due January 15th. For each additional sibling the fee is $165. This fee includes 1 costume with all accessories, 1 pair of tights (for girls), end of the year award, yearbook, 2 tickets, video download link, facility/equipment rental, facility manager/custodian fee, props, music production, sound/lighting techs, security and more. If your child is in more than one class, there is an additional costume fee of $85 per class. If you choose to do two installment payments $85 is due on January 15th and the remaining $100 ($80 for siblings) is due on April 15th. All additional costume fees are due on January 15th.

Referrals

You will receive a $25 credit to your account for referring a new student to the studio. Your credit will appear after they register and pay the first month's tuition.

Absences

There are no refunds or credits given if a student is absent from class. You are able to make-up classes within the same month in another class of the same level. In the event that your usual instructor is absent, another qualified member of our staff will be available to substitute the lesson. If a substitute cannot be provided, either the class will rescheduled as a whole by the instructor or you will receive a per lesson credit towards your next month's tuition.

Termination of Lessons

Two weeks notice is required to discontinue any lessons. Withdrawal must be done in person and will not be accepted over the phone.

To withdraw from lessons a parent or adult student must:

  • Inform the front desk or Dance Director
  • Complete and sign a withdrawal form provided by Footnotes Dance & Music Studio
