I/we realize that participation in dance classes and activities could involve some possible personal injury. Despite precautions, accidents and injuries may occur. By signing this release form, I/we (the dancer and parent/guardian) assume all risks related to the participation in all events and use of any spaces associated with Hart Dance Academy, Inc.
Photography and live recordings may be taken during studio activities. I/we grant permission for images of our dancer(s) to be used for studio publications including printed materials and social media websites.
Changes in enrollment must be communicated 10 days prior to the next tuition due date in order to take effect. Delinquent accounts will be assessed a $10 late fee after 10 days.
We are committed to keeping dancers safe and dancing during the global pandemic of Covid-19. Please read our specific safety procedures available online and in the portal.
For the 2020-2021 dance year, we will follow the Lincoln-Lancaster Country Health Department's Covid-19 Dashboard for guidance:
If we are in the green, classes will all be held in-person, without a mask requirement (unless the city still has the mandate from the mayor).
If we are in yellow, classes will all be held in-person, with a mask requirement (following the city guidance).
If we are in orange, classes will be held in-person, with a mask requirement.
If we are in red, classes will be held in person and/or via Zoom at our discretion and the health department, as well as the current city mandates. We will strive to offer at least some online options if there is interest.
Since the information is always changing, our responses are subject to fluidity. We will always be making the safest decision we can to allow for dancers to have class and reduce risk to our families.
Our refund policy will remain the same. Once tuition is paid, it cannot be refunded. If we are holding a spot for your dancer in class, the tuition is due and we will hold classes or offer online (in the above situations) accordingly. Dancers who choose to start the year late or miss a session are not guaranteed a spot back in the same class, so we encourage dancers to follow along with the same class(es) the entire school year as our season runs. That is also the best way for them to stay up-to-date with the class curriculum.
We appreciate your support of our local small business! It is our loyal dance families who have kept us in business for 34 years and through this global pandemic. We are thrilled to continue to teach the LOVE of dance at HART!
Our class curriculum is designed to run September to May, like a school year. The sessions are breakdowns of smaller increments in time to help with payment procedures. It is assumed that all dancers will continue with the same schedule for the school year UNLESS written notice is given. If your dancer would like to add, drop or change classes, it must be done 10 days prior to the next session tuition due date.
Session payments are for 2 months of classes (September/October, November/December, January/February and March/April). In a recital year, we will also have a half payment for May/June. There are no refunds for tuition and we do not pro-rate drops within the session. However, we will work with students in situations of extreme illness or injury to offer credit. Please contact us for more information.
It is no longer automatic that rates over $100 are divided into monthly payments. If your session tuition rate is over $300 and you would like to pay monthly instead, please contact us for the options available. We are happy to work with those in special circumstances to pay their bill. If you need extra time or scholarship consideration, please email email@example.com
All students must have a credit/debit card or bank account on file for our AutoPay system online. If you prefer to use cash or check and pay in person, this can easily be done at the studio prior to the due date and those accounts will never be charged. However, we do require that everyone has an account on file to help us avoid delinquent accounts. Your current account balance will be charged on the due dates listed for each item (tuition, costumes, etc.). Overdue accounts are subject to cancellation of your registration.
As always, we strive to be the best dance studio in Lincoln where your student will learn the LOVE of dance. If you feel we can help you in any way, we want to hear from you! Thank you.
