Registration and tuition payment information:

Regardless of early payment, a credit/debit card must be on file for Auto Draft. The card will be auto drafted for tuition on the 15th of each month. Parents are able to make early payments between the 1st & 12th of each month via your Parent Portal, Cashapp ($Inthekeyofdance), Zelle (, Check, Cash, or Credit/Debit Card at the studio. Auto draft will not apply if payments are made before the 12th.

In the Key of Dance tuition is based on an entire season of dance. Our season runs from August - May 2024. Tuition is based on 39 weeks of instruction, not based on classes attended. The 39 weeks of instruction is divided into 10 equal monthly installments which excludes Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, December Holiday Break, Halloween, and Spring Break. There is NO refund for missed classes or midterm withdrawals. At the time of registration, a payment for that month's tuition and the registration fee will be due. These fees are non-refundable. The other installments are due on the 15th of each month, September 2023 - May 2024, and will be automatically billed to the card on file.

All monthly tuition payments, costume payments, and the Christmas & Spring showcase fees must be paid on time.

RECEIPT OF PAYMENT: You will not receive a billing statement or invoice prior to any charges.

LATE FEE: If your card on file is declined, an alternate payment must be made by the next day. A $25 Late Fee will be charged for any payments not made in full by the 16th of the month. This includes declined charges for cards on file for any reason.

PAYMENT AUTHORIZATION I hereby authorize In the Key of Dance Studio to charge my credit or debit card for services related to my family's enrollment at In the Key of Dance. Fees are subject to change. If I elect to pay tuition via monthly installments, I understand that my credit or debit card will continue to be charged monthly, unless I notify the studio in writing before the intent to discontinue via email to and receive an acknowledged returned response from In the Key of Dance Studio staff. I understand that it will not be sufficient notice to randomly tell an instructor or other employee of our intent to discontinue. I have read this entire agreement and understand that I will be held fully responsible for its terms and conditions of service, including a written notice by email to In the Key of Dance of any intent to discontinue. I understand that once the monthly installments for my annual tuition have occurred there will be no refund given for classes taken if I decide to discontinue in the same month. I agree to notify In the Key of Dance immediately of any change in the status of my charge account including but not limited to card expiration, name change, limitation of use, loss or theft of the card, etc.

In the event that the amount charged is refused for any reason, I accept responsibility for full payment for the amount charged as well as an NSF fee of $35.00.

Costume Expenses:

Costume expenses are the responsibility of the parent and will not be distributed to students with unpaid class tuition/costume fees. Families who don't comply with their fees will be excluded from participating in class, performances, and turned away upon arrival. External debt collection may occur when fees remain overdue and will be at the expense of the parent. We don't permit tuition to accumulate.

We may immediately terminate your enrollment agreement without written notice if you file, for any reason, a dispute, claim, and/or chargeback request from your credit or debit card issuer or any other payment method you use.

I understand that I am being charged for Tuition, Classwear/Dancewear (if orders are requested), Holiday Performance Fee, Costume Fees, and/or any services offered in our policy & procedures. These charges are non-refundable and non-transferable.
