A $25 late fee is added after the 10th of every month. If balance is not reconciled by 10th, the dancer will not be allowed to participate in class. All balances MUST be paid prior to performing.
ALL Tuition and fees are non-transferable and nonrefundable unless withdrawal is due to prolonged illness or injury verified by a doctor’s certificate. Tuition refunds will only be made for that month and not any previous months. No tuition deduction or allowance shall be made by reason of the absence, withdrawal, suspension, or dismissal of the student.
Tuition and fees are not prorated; regardless of how many days you attend classes in a month. Whether you come 31 days out of the month or 11 days out of the month, the tuition rate will remain the same unless otherwise decide by the director of The Concrete Rose Dance Academy.
Attendance and Punctuality are very important in establishing unity, injury prevention and accountability. Regular attendance is expected. TCRDA students are expected to arrive on time. Please have open communication with the studio about any absences that are needed in a timely manner. We understand things come up and will work with you. Dancers are allowed up to 3 excused absences per semester. If a dancer is more than 15 minutes late to class, they may be asked to sit out of class due to risk of injury if not warmed up properly. Dancers who exceed 3 absences or 4 tardies may be taken out of missed choreography. Inconsistent attendance can affect student’s advancement and possibly remove their opportunity of performing with the class. If a student must miss a class, please notify the front office by phone 252-260-0028. As previously stated, if a student is absent, the tuition rate does not change. Additionally, it is the policy of TCRDA not to return tuition payments for lessons not fulfilled. Students must be picked up promptly after class.
Each student has enrolled for an entire year, (approx. 34 weeks. One month notice from the first of the month is required to discontinue any class. To withdrawal, you must inform the office and fill out a withdrawal form provided by the office. We DO NOT refund the last months payment. A free trial class is offered for all students.
