TUITION

Automatic Payment System

All tuitions will be made through our automatic payment system. You will have two choices on how to pay. 1.) Automatic withdrawal from your account into the Kitty Lee studio bank account via online 2.) Credit card payments (Credit card payments are charged a processing fee of 3%) If you have a debit card please fill in the routing number and account number associated with the card to avoid fees. Payments will be deducted from your account on the 20th of each month starting with the August payment. You will pay for 10 full months with your final payment taken on May 20th. Please fill out the “Automatic withdrawal authorization form” for automatic withdrawal and credit card payments. If you are unable to do the automatic payment, please see Diane in Office. ***** a 5% discount will be applied if your tuition for the year is paid in full during first week of classes, Aug 19th -26th.

STUDENT WITHDRAWAL

You may withdraw from any or all classes at any time by filling out our Drop Class Form 2 weeks prior to your tuition due date. Payments of all classes that a student has participated in are due in full at time of cancellation. IF A DROP FORM IS NOT RECEIVED WE WILL ASSUME THE STUDENT IS STILL ENROLLED AND FULL TUITION PAYMENT WILL BE EXPECTED ACCORDING TO OUR PAYMENT PROCEDURES.

NO REFUNDS FOR ABSENCES. Tuition is based on 4 classes a month. There will be a 5th class some months to make up for holidays. MAKE UP CLASSES ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE! It is up to you to contact us and arrange for your child’s make-up times. You may not skip a month and return without paying for the month missed. If classes are cancelled due to bad weather, you are welcome to make them up. Please check T.V. and FACEBOOK when the weather is bad. You can also check our website (danceatkittys.com). Students are urged not to be absent unless absolutely necessary.

COSTUME DEPOSIT Due October 15th
There will be a deposit of $25 for each student per class due the 15th of October for costumes. If your child is in tap/ballet and a jazz class, your deposit is $50. This allows us to get a quicker jump on costume orders. Balances will be due in March.

RECITAL FEE Due October 15th
$80.00 per single child family & $90.00 for multi student family. This is to be paid with your costume deposit in October.

As of January 1st 2018 there are NO REFUNDS for the costume deposit and recital fee. If the costume can not be returned, you will be responsible for paying for the full amount or the remaining balance of the costume.

 

CLASS PLACEMENT

Placement is made with the ability of the individual student in mind and advancement is not by classes as a whole or by carpools. If a student shows appropriate and unusual progress during the year, he/she will be transferred to a more appropriate class. Pointe shoes are granted on the same basis—when we feel the student is strong enough, regardless of her age or number of years of study.

RECITAL

Class attendance is very important and if we as teachers feel that an individual has missed too many classes we may pull them from a routine. This is only fair to those who attend regularly. No video taping will be allowed at recital. Please video and take pictures at dress rehearsal.
