Withdrawal Policy: If a child does not wish to continue in a class, please speak with Ms. Melissa or Ms. Susan for the account to be inactivated. You will be held responsible for monthly payments regardless of the number of absences until you have officially withdrawn your child.
Make-up Classes: We encourage our students to attend regularly to make sure they continue to learn, improve and rehearse with their class members. However, sometimes students must miss a class. Although a refund cannot be given for these absences or missed classes, we will be happy to schedule a make-up class, if available. Please call the office to find out when make-up times are available.
Inclement Weather: During times of severe weather, such as snow or tornadoes, BJSD emphasizes that safety is our top priority. We encourage everyone to use his or her best judgment in deciding to travel to the studio during severe weather.
Picture Days: Professional individual and group pictures are taken during BJSD Picture Days. Schedules will be distributed in February. Please note Picture Days occur on weekends.
Tuition: Payment is due the first lesson of the month. It is considered late after the 10th.
Tuition is due for every month between August (or your starting month) and May regardless of classes missed or holidays. Since your monthly tuition is based on a yearly tuition, you are NOT paying for the same number of classes each month so months with less classes (like December) are offset by months with more classes. In other words, you are responsible for paying for each month whether you come or not.
Other Payment Information Statements and bills will only be sent to past due accounts.
Payments can be made by check or in cash. For payments made by checks, dancer’s first and last name must be on ALL checks. For payments made in cash, be sure to get a receipt! This is your proof of payment! Please keep your receipts.
Please be aware that if your account balance becomes delinquent by more than two months, you will need to speak directly with
Ms. Susan or Ms. Melissa so your child to be able to continue taking classes.
