LOST & FOUND
Articles left behind at the studio will be placed into a Lost & Found box in Miss Judy's office. It is a good rule of thumb to check that you have all personal items with you before leaving the studio, and not to leave valuable items unattended. Please note: The Dance Works is not responsible for lost or stolen articles.
Our rates are competitive and multiple classes receive a group package discount. Please contact the studio for current specific rate information.
An initial registration fee of $25 per child is required for all new students. Failure to sustain active enrollment will result in a new $25 registration fee.
Lessons are payable by the month and are due the 1st through 7th of each month. Printed bills are distributed only on tardy payments. Discounts are given on two or more children from the same family. A $10 late fee (strictly enforced) will be applied after the 7th of the month on all tardy payments. To avoid this late fee, payments may be mailed to the studio. Please make checks out to "The Dance Works" and include your child’s name on check. A $25 service fee will be charged for any returned checks.
We also offer autopay from your checking or savings account, processed on the 1st of each month. Ask for an ACH form at the office, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each month The Dance Works posts its newsletter on our website. The newsletter contains important information and noteworthy news for the upcoming month(s). A printed copy can be obtained at the office.
Parents may observe class through one-way windows on the first lesson of each month with the exception of September.

RECITAL & COSTUMES
Recital is held anytime from mid-May to the end of June. Students need one costume per routine. A non-refundable deposit of $50 per routine is due by Nov. 1st. A $10.00 late fee will be applied after the 7th. Costumes will not be ordered without deposit. You are responsible for all remaining costume balances due by Feb. 1st even if you discontinue lessons, as we must pay for all costumes in full when we place our order. A $10.00 late fee will be applied on Feb. 8th for all unpaid balances. All payments must be paid in full to take home costumes.
If you do not wish to participate in the recital, please inform us ASAP for costume ordering purposes. IF YOU ORDER A COSTUME YOU WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FULL BALANCE, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE RECITAL.
