You are REQUIRED to be on AUTO-PAY for Tuition and any owed balance.
Recital Fees are due November 10, 2023 and will be AUTO-PAID.
Upon registering for classes, DSP will prompt you to fill in the appropriate information.

Auto-Pay is Required. IF YOU DO NOT set up auto-pay for your account, your account will be removed and considered invalid for registration. Upon registration in the portal, your account will be charged a registration fee and first month tuition payment. You will be prompted to pay. If you do not pay, your account for your dancer will not be accepted into the system and your dancer will not be officially enrolled. Make sure to do this step!
Private lessons are available upon request. Please inquire at the studio office. Costs vary on the package chosen.

Studio closings closely follow the Olathe School District (USD 233) calendar. However, we do not close for teachers’ in-service, conference days and certain holidays. Please refer to our list of important dates.
SSOD will email, post on FB/IG and give notice on your DSP parent portal if your class is going to be canceled.
If your class is canceled due to weather, you may take another comparable class for make-up. Please email us for comparable classes if you are unsure.
The first weather related closing that affects each class will NOT be followed by a make-up class. Should a second or subsequent weather related closing occur for that same class, we will schedule a make-up class.
You must check your email for important updates for your dancer.
This is very important and is our major form of communication. These updates contain vital and pertinent information that you and your dancer will need for events. It is your responsibility to check emails for your dancer.
If you are not receiving email notifications, please let SSOD know immediately so we may correct any problems.

If you are interested in auditioning, please talk to your dance instructor or the Studio staff. It is suggested to thoroughly review all information before considering this as it is a commitment for a team.

As of November 1st, you become obligated to pay the total recital fee for your dancer even if he/she discontinues classes. Our schedule is set months in advance so please make sure that you mark your calendars.

Expectations for Participation
The Studio’s Recital Contract is designed to ensure all children participating in the dance show will receive the same great experience. In order to accomplish this goal, each student’s parents/guardians will need to be involved and committed.
Once we begin learning choreography in February before recital, students should not miss more than 4 weeks per dance class. It is so important that all children come to class so that we can continue to move forward with the dance.

Flowers and Bears for your Dancer (Our Company Fundraiser)
These items will all be on display before the performances for purchase and on the day of Dress Rehearsal.
An excessive amount of absences from weekly classes could mean the dancer will not be able to perform in the Recital due to the dancer not knowing the choreography. Our instructors will give their best effort, but please make every effort to have exceptional attendance so your dancer will be able to learn and improve. Special circumstances are decided on a case by case basis by the instructor.
No credit or refund will be given for classes missed by students. We do not grant a leave of absence for students. Any time your child misses a lesson, that dance time may be made up by attending one of our other classes.
Should a student miss class because of illness, a make-up class can be scheduled with prior instructor consultation as to appropriate class placement.
If a student is unable to attend, please notify The Studio:
By calling The Studio - 913-764-7790
By emailing The Studio - firstname.lastname@example.org
Logging into your DSP parent portal and making the notification
We reserve the right to reschedule or cancel a class time for reasons of insufficient enrollment or instructors’ professional discretion.
Any dancer may be dismissed from SSOD at any time due to non-payment, unsatisfactory conduct or attitude by the dancer and/or parent/s at the sole discretion of the Owner. No refunds will be given.
Non-attendance does NOT mean you have dropped your classes and/or withdrawn from SSOD. If you wish to withdraw, you must email us at email@example.com 30 days prior to your withdrawal date. This means that once your email request is received, your account will be charged for ONE month’s tuition of current class enrollment. For any recital fees associated with your current classes, there is NO REFUND.
Your account will continue to be charged through the 30 days and you will owe that amount as part of your contractual agreement.
For example, if you notify us of your withdrawal in December, you will pay for January. Upon payment via Auto-Pay draft, your account will be deactivated and the student will be removed from the registered classes. ALL RECITAL FEES are NON-REFUNDABLE.
Class Changes (Add, Drop or Change Level)
There is a 6 week period from the time of registration/the first day of our season, to drop, add or change level of a class.
Commitment and Legal Fees
In the event that your balance is referred to our collection agency, you agree to pay the fees associated with doing so. You agree to all statements in this registration agreement by your child’s participation in class.
