YOUTH DANCE TUITION RATES*
Tuition rates are based on participation for the full season, September thru June, followed by an annual June recital**, which would include students from all classes (not Zumbini). Tuition can be paid in full prior to the start of class (see Full Payment Incentive below). Tuition may also be paid in monthly installments. If making monthly payments, tuition is due the 1st day of each month (September1 - June 1). Please see the LATE FEE POLICY below for more details. September will be reserved for paying registration fees (if not already paid prior) and paying for proper class attire, when applicable. ALL dance attire (and shoes) must be purchased through TPC. Inquire within for pricing.
*NOTE: ALL tuition must be PAID IN FULL for student eligibility in the annual June recital.

FULL PAYMENT INCENTIVE
A 10% discount will be applied to any tuition PAID IN FULL PRIOR to the start of the student's first class. (We apologize, however, this discount does not apply when a student is sponsored by an agency or person other than the parent(s)/legal guardian(s).)
If a student (or parent) refers a new student who signs up and dances the full season, that student (the one who referred the new student) will receive a $50 registration credit on the next year's season (i.e. New student signs up and dances for 2019 - 2020 dance term, referring student receives credit upon their return in the 2020 - 2021 dance term). Referral must be verified by the owners to qualify.
The annual recital will take place June 20, 2020 (Comstock High School Auditorium). Every student must purchase a recital package. The package includes the costume for one class, tights, two recital tickets, recital t-shirt and more. The cost for the recital package is $200 per student. For students in multiple classes, additional costumes must be purchased at $60 each. Any additional shoes that are needed for the recital must be purchased separately. Please inquire within regarding the recital package cost for siblings.
The recital package can be paid in payments; however, at least $100 must be paid by Dec. 1, 2019 and the remaining balance must be paid by March 1, 2020.
LATE FEE POLICY
Tuition payments are due the 1st day of each month regardless of class being in session or not. There will be a $20 late fee added to the payment beginning the 8th day of the month. Tuition is expected regardless of student absences, class cancellations, holidays, breaks, or the like. Cash, credit/debit cards (with 4% processing fee), and checks are accepted.
NON-SUFFICIENT FUNDS FEE
There will be a $35 NSF fee charged for all returned checks. After the first returned check, no more checks will be allowed from that person. Third party checks by persons other than the parent or guardian are prohibited.
All payments are non-refundable. Registration for TPC classes is a commitment of the full season unless communicated otherwise with the owners. In the event of dismissal (whether by owners or choice of the parents), tuition for the current month (and any past due payments) is still expected to be paid. A TWO-WEEK WRITTEN NOTICE MUST BE GIVEN TO THE OWNERS PRIOR TO PERMANENTLY LEAVING THE PROGRAM. The current month's tuition and any past due balances must be made or legal action may be taken.
