Class Changes and Enrollment Cancellation Policy

When dropping or adding a class at any time during the year, please communicate this to the front desk personnel. It will be the student’s responsibility or parent if student is a minor, to complete a “Drop-Add” request form to ensure the student is properly enrolled in class(es). Teachers are not privy to any tuition amount the student pays and therefore can unknowingly allow students to take their class who are not properly enrolled. If a student commences taking additional classes without having properly enrolled into the class, the student and/or parent will still be responsible for any fees related to such additional classes.

Cancelling Enrollment

Not showing up for a class(es), does not constitute a withdrawal from class. Accounts will continue to be charged for tuition even with absences until the change has been properly completed. If the dancer or parent wishes to discontinue classes indefinitely and stop the auto- payment schedule for tuition, notice must be given in writing thirty (30) days prior to the next billing cycle. Cancellation of any enrollment in classes will not be accepted by phone.

 

Cancelled Classes and Full Classes

Not showing up for a class(es), does not constitute a withdrawal from class. Accounts will continue to be charged for tuition even with absences until the change has been properly completed. If the dancer or parent wishes to discontinue classes indefinitely and stop the auto- payment schedule for tuition, notice must be given in writing thirty (30) days prior to the next billing cycle. Cancellation of any enrollment in classes will not be accepted by phone.

Full Classes

A waitlist will be started for any classes which are closed due to reaching maximum capacity. Students will be waitlisted on a first come first serve basis. Students will be notified of available openings based on this list.

Tuition Policies

Tuition is due to ADC on the 1st of each month and is non-refundable. Tuition for classes is billed per month, not per class. Tuition remains the same regardless of absences, holidays and whether it is a long (five-week) month or a short (three-week) month. Tuition credits may be considered on a case by case basis in situations of serious injury or illness which mandates prolonged absence as substantiated by medical documentation. Families must give a 30-day notice if you chose to take a break from ADC. If the student takes a break mid season he/she will be required to re-enroll and pay the $25 re-registration fee.

Payment

Auto-payment via credit or debit card is mandatory for tuition payments. Options for alternative dates to charge your account such as the 5th or the 10th are available. If you need this option, please communicate your request to admin@avantidancecompany.com . For those who are unable to comply with the auto- payment requirement, there will be a $10 fee per month added to their monthly tuition. MAKE-UPS: No tuition refunds will be given for missed classes.   ADC will make every effort to allow a student to attend make-up classes for scheduled classes he/she has missed but cannot always guarantee this privilege. Students must make up any missed classes within one month of the absence during the Fall-Spring Season or make up any missed classes within one week during the Summer Session. Students may only attend the same number of make-up classes as the number of classes missed. Students may not drop into a class for a make-up without prior permission. All make-ups must be approved by the front desk staff and a recommendation of classes to take for the make- ups will be provided.

Late Fee

We have a very fair policy regarding the assessment of late fees. Payments are due on the first of each calendar month. There is no late fee assessed until after 15th of the month. Any account unpaid after the fifteenth of the month will have late charges assessed for 10% of the total monthly tuition and/or account balance. If you make a payment late, you will need to make this at the front desk with the Avanti staff. Please include your late fee or you will be billed the following month. There is a $25.00 penalty fee charged for any returned payments. Any student with an overdue balance of more than 45 days will not be allowed into class until payment in full is received.

 

Attendance Policy

If a student has an unexcused absences of three or more classes consecutively or missed the same class five or more times within a two month period for any class which is at maximum capacity, ADC reserves the right to drop the student from the class and make his/her spot available to another student who has been on a waitlist for said class. HOLIDAYS: The studio will not necessarily close regardless if area schools are closed. If in doubt call the studio or check our website before coming to class. If classes are canceled notification from the studio will be sent via email or posted on the website www.avantidancecompany.com
