Tuition Policy & Membership Waiver


Sep 22, 2020 08:00 PM



TUITION FEES & PAYMENTS
Tuition rates are for the full season (August-May, including studio holidays), not by the number of classes in the month. A full season of dance includes a minimum of 32 lessons. Tuition fees are paid monthly or annually.

After enrolling (paying your membership fee), monthly tuition (August-May) must be paid via automatic bank account debit (ACH) or automatic credit/debit card payment. Tuition will be debited from your ACH account (or charged to your credit/debit card) on the 1st day of each month (August-May). There is a 3.5% convenience fee on credit/debit card payments. To avoid this fee please pay by ACH auto-pay, OR in person via cash, check by the 1st of each month.

Imagine That Camps, Summer Workshop, Summer Intensive, and Winter Workshops, etc. are "all inclusive" tuition and due in FULL at time of Camp/Workshop/Intensive/Clinic. Tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable.

WITHDRAW FROM CLASS
There is a two month minimum for all lessons. Once-month notice form the first of the month is required to discontinue any payments. To withdraw a parent must 1) inform the studio in person, and 2) complete and sign a withdrawal form. Automatic bank debiting or credit card charges will stop after the one-month notice period.

NSF PAYMENTS
Accounts not paid within terms incur a $30 late fee. Accounts more than 60 days past due may be submitted to collection services.

RESCHEDULING AND SUBSTITUTION
Villa West reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regular teacher is ill or is otherwise unable to teach. VW reserves the right to reschedule or combine classes. VW reserves the right to move to a virtual classroom platform should a facility closure be necessary.

REFUNDS/CREDIT ON ACCOUNT
Refunds are only issued when VW cancels a class due to low enrollment. Account credit will be issued when the student initiates the schedule change. Credit will be applied to any VW tuition or fees due within one year.

PRIVATE LESSON CANCELLATION POLICY
All private lessons cancelled with more than 24 hours notice will receive a full refund. No-show lessons or lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged the full amount.

ROLL-OVER MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION
On April 20, the annual membership registration fee ($60 per family) will automatically process for all student accounts. This provides “early-registration” access to select your preferred class day/times for the fall season before we open registration to the community.
Opting out - if you wish to opt out of continued training in the next season, stop at the desk to fill out a written “Opt-Out” form BEFORE APRIL 20 and your yearly membership fee will NOT be processed.
Class placement is based on age and grade student will be entering in the fall unless otherwise noted in a class recommendation from your instructor.
