Waiver 2023

Feb 24, 2024 10:03 AM

I have received or will obtain a copy of West Coast Dance Conservatory policies and will take the responsibility to carefully read and follow the rules and policies therein. I understand that West Coast Dance Conservatory does not give credit and/or refunds for class(es) missed due to holiday, vacation, illness, weather, etc.

Tuition is based on one full school term (September-June), divided into 10 monthly payments. The first payment is due, along with registration fee, at the time of enrollment. Future monthly payments are due on the 1st. Although the number of classes may vary per month, the monthly fee remains constant and is based on the annual tuition amount. Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments for simplicity. Note that because tuition is based on a yearly cost, there is no pro-rating for shorter months. Statements will be sent via e-mail if your account is not paid by the 10th, in which case a late fee will be attached.

A 30 day notice is required for withdrawal and to stop automatic billing. All withdrawal requests must be submitted by email. We will bill your account 30 days from when we receive the notice. If your final day lands in the middle of a month, the final bill will be prorated. Once tuition is paid it is non-refundable.

Students must be enrolled full-time between January and June to participate in the Spring Performance. This is valuable class time utilized to learn the recital dance. If a dancer is not enrolled for any time during January to June, they will not be allowed to perform in the Spring Performance. All balances due in DanceStudio-Pro need to be payed in full by the time of the Spring Performance. Dancers will not be allowed to perform if they have an overdue balance. Costume and other recital-related fees are non-refundable.

The COVID-19 pandemic and potential “shelter-in-place” orders implemented by state and local health authorities may impact our ability to offer in-person dance classes, camps, intensives, private lessons, competitions, conventions or the Spring Performance. These dance classes and other activities may transition to an online platform (i.e. Zoom) at any time. Tuition payments, fees and our withdrawal policies will remain the same for both in-person and online activities. No refunds, credits or pro-rated tuition will be offered if an alternative activity is available via an online platform (i.e. Zoom).

Dispute of a charge through your financial institution will constitute a breach of contract possibly resulting in, but not limited to, penalties, additional fees, collection, legal action, and/or termination of any and/or all current and future services.

Photos taken in class, during performance or at any dance event, by a representative of West Coast Dance Conservatory may be used for any reasonable use for advertising and display purposes.

I HEREBY ASSUME ALL OF THE RISKS OF PARTICIPATING IN THIS ACTIVITY OR EVENT, including by way of example and not limitation, any risks that may arise from negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities being released, from dangerous or defective equipment or property owned, maintained, or controlled by them, or because of their possible liability without fault.
