MONTHLY TUITION & REHEARSALS
Tuition & rehearsal fees are due the 1st of every month and are non-refundable once paid. In order to
ensure timely payment, we recommend all students to have a credit card on file for the entire
season. For Auto-pay, Tuition & rehearsal fees (if applicable) will be charged automatically on the 1st of every month in 1 transaction
for both fees. You have the option to pay via cash or check and if you choose to do so, your payment will
be due on the 25th of the prior month in order to avoid an auto draft on the credit card on file. If ANY
payments are made after the 1st of the month they will be subject to a $25 late fee. A non-sufficient funds
fee of $35 will be applied to any returned check or declined credit card payment. All fees are nonrefundable.
Tuition is based on an average of four weeks per month. There will be no additional fees for
months when a fifth week occurs, nor will there be a reduction in monthly fees when less than four weeks
are held in a month for any reason, i.e. a major holiday, absence, competition, or recital. Chavarria Institute
of the Arts reserves the right to cancel classes in order to accommodate teacher schedules, additional
rehearsals for company dances or performances, and to allow for master classes.
Unlimited Tuition students must be enrolled in the classes before they attend. Students may not enroll in 2 classes that are
scheduled at the same time so that we can ensure there are classes available for all of our dancers. If your
dancer is absent for 4 consecutive classes, we reserve the right to drop the dancer from that class to make
room for other enrollment or a waitlisted student. Chavarria Institute of the Arts reserves the right to drop a
dancer from a specific class if the skill or age level of the class is not appropriate for the dancer.
Any dancer that wishes to drop any classes must give a 30-day notice to drop through our Parent Portal
or via email firstname.lastname@example.org . If a dancer is outside of the drop time, the dancer’s account will still
be charged the full month’s tuition.
Welcome to Chavarria Institute of the Arts. Please see the following Studio Polies.
Attendance / Tardiness
Attendance will be monitored at every class. Consistent attendance is crucial to the success of every dancer as it promotes a strong work ethic and improves a dancer’s ability to master skills and develop strong technique. Dancers arriving 10 minutes late to class may not be permitted to attend that particular class regardless of the reason. This rule not only limits the disruption to the other dancers but is also for the safety of the dancer that did not arrive in time to receive a proper warm-up. Any dancer that is not allowed into a class due to tardiness is welcome to make-up that particular class within the parameters of our make-up policy. Dancers that are continuously tardy to class may be asked to change classes to a more convenient day and time.
Missed classes with an excused absence due to studio closures, illness, tardiness, and other reasons can be made up within 30 days of that missed class. If your dancer will be missing class, there MUST be an absence submitted through our Parent Portal ( https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/ciadanceco ) making us aware of the absence for it to be considered for an excused absence. Dancers must be enrolled in the same number of classes in the month missed as the month the make-ups will be redeemed. Dancers cannot drop classes and then use make-ups for the classes dropped. Make-up classes are non-transferrable and are forfeited if not used within the 30-day period. Chavarria Institute of the Arts reserves the right to refuse the use of a make-up should the class size be too large on the day of the make-up, the absence is unexcused, or if the skill or age level of the class is not appropriate for the dancer.
Tuition & Rehearsals
Tuition & rehearsal fees are due the 1st of every month. All company members are required to have a credit card on file for the entire season. Tuition & rehearsal fees will both be auto drafted on the 1st of every month in 1 transaction. You have the option to pay via cash or check and if you choose to do so, your payment will be due on the 25th of the prior month in order to not be auto drafted on the 1st. If ANY payments are made after the 1st of the month, they will be subject to a $25 late fee. A non-sufficient funds fee of $35 will be applied to any returned or declined payment. All fees are non-refundable. Tuition is based on an average of four weeks per month. There will be no additional fees for months when a fifth week occurs, nor will there be a reduction in monthly fees when less than four weeks are held in a month for any reason, i.e., a major holiday, absence, competition, or recital.
