Morton Street Dance Center, Inc.
School Policies, Contract, Acknowledgements and Waiver and Release Agreement
I have read and agree with Morton Street's policies and procedures including:
10 MONTH PROGRAM:
Once you are registered, you are responsible for your full accrued and unaccrued tuition for Morton Street Dance's ten month program and any other registration related charges, costumes, or late fees assessed on your account; there are no refunds. You will be responsible to pay the remainder of your account balance within 60 days of your withdrawal date; after this time, outstanding balances are subject to collections.
I understand that children’s classes are a 10-month commitment and I agree to pay for the full session registered, unless I provide written notice of withdrawal in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the School Handbook. I acknowledge receipt of the School Handbook and agree to abide by the terms and conditions set forth therein.
* If you choose to withdraw, written formal notification must be provided to avoid incurring additional fees on your account, such as costumes that have not yet been ordered.
*Upon withdrawal, if a dancer’s costume(s) has been ordered, Morton Street may attempt to cancel the costume(s), if possible. If cancellation is not possible, you will remain\
responsible for all costume costs incurred.
10 MONTH PROGRAM:
A nonrefundable, deposit is due at registration to reserve a space in a class(es). There are three (3) registration levels, with varying eligibility dates: VIP, Premium, and Standard Registration. The earlier you register, the more likely you are to secure the most appropriate class placement(s). Registration fees are separate from tuition.
If you opt to pay or default to the eight (8 total) (versus payment in full), you must keep a current debit or credit card on your account for this purpose. September payments must be handled online or over the phone so we can ensure we have all necessary paperwork and registration material complete and on file. All students who register before September 1st, must complete their registration by September 1st by providing payment in full or the first of eight payments for tuition any applicable costume deposit(s). Failure to complete registration may result in the forfeiture of a reserved class placement(s).
After September 1st, tuition payments will be auto-debited on the 1st of each month from October 2022 through April 2023. Any declined credit and debit cards or incomplete monthly payments will charged a $40 late fee on the 10th of the month. If an account is more than 15 days late, the dancer(s) will not be allowed to take class. Unfortunately, there are NO exceptions.
*Accounts with outstanding balances (including tuition, costumes, or other fees) after April 15th, 2023 will be charged a $50 late fee on April 15th, 2024 and the 10th of the month every month thereafter until satisfied. Unpaid balance are subject to collection, whether overdue or resulting from withdrawal.
Costumes and accessories will not be distributed to students with any outstanding balances on their accounts--no exceptions.
* Accounts with outstanding balances will also not be able to reserve ad space in our concert program.
10 MONTH PROGRAM:
There is a $50 costume deposit due at the time of registration for each class. Costume balances are due by Saturday, February 17, 2024. Late costume and tuition payments will jeopardize receipt of the costumes.
Attendance and timeliness in classes are essential so instructors can properly, developmentally and professionally train our students; attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class.
* A student more than ten minutes late will be asked to observe class. Students must be present for class at least ten minutes before their scheduled class time.
* Attendance at all rehearsals, before any performance, is absolutely required. Any student who misses a final tech or dress rehearsal before a performance may be unable to participate in that performance, at the complete discretion of the instructor. Instructors reserve the right to re-stage choreography or remove a student from choreography because of excessive (3 or more) absences in either the Fall or Spring semesters.
I acknowledge receipt of the 32nd Season Calendar of Events and agree to attend each mandatory rehearsal. This calendar is available at all times through your MSDC Account (you must consent to this schedule when you submit your Online Registration).
