WELCOME TO THE DANCE WORKS: We hope your summer was fun and relaxing and you are ready for another great year of dance. Please join Miss Gina in welcoming back Miss Paula, Miss Julie, Miss Caitlin, Miss Nikkie, Miss Debbie, and Miss Marianne! We had a blast at our annual open house on Saturday 9/9, and we're looking forward to getting to know all our new students, and reconnecting with those who've been with us for a while.
A reminder…tuition is due the first lesson of each month. A $10.00 late fee (strictly enforced) will be applied after the 7th of the month on all tardy payments. (Exception: September late fees will apply on 9/17.) Please put the student’s name on the check to alleviate posting your payment to an incorrect account. Printed bills are distributed only on tardy payments.
For your convenience we offer autopay from your checking or savings account, which processes the first of each month. Ask for an ACH form at the office, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
