Tuition is due upon registration and must be paid within 7 days of registering if not paid during the registration process. After registration, tuition is due the 1st of each month. Tuition not paid by the 10th of the month will be charged a $15.00 late fee; tuition not paid by the end of the month, student /students will not be permitted to participate in any class, rehearsal, performance or competition until tuition is paid in full. Two party payments are accepted, but any late fees will still be applied to the whole account. A valid bank card, Visa, Master Card or Discover must be kept on file at all times and you authorize Veracity Dance Project to charge your card on file if tuition is not paid by the 10th of each month. There are no refunds or deductions on tuition for any reason. Tuition is a flat rate per month regardless of how many lessons the student receives during said month. All returned checks will be charged the bank fee plus an additional $30 fee from the studio. Family will not be permitted to pay by check thereafter, only cash or credit card will be accepted.
Students must attend classes regularly and are discouraged from missing more than a few times a year. Attendance is critical for learning and we strongly encourage parents to bring children to class every week. Students that are absent more than 10 times per year may be dismissed at the directors and teacher discretion. Please communicate to the studio directly if a student will be absent for any reason . Good attendance is crucial for learning and advancement.
Withdrawing from Classes
Veracity Dance Project runs as a 9-month program: September through May. As of December 1st, 2017, all class drop and studio withdrawal requests must be received in writing 30 days in advance. Otherwise, the following month's tuition will be withdrawn before cancellation. Once withdrawn, you forfeit your registration fee. If you choose to come back within the same dance season, you will be required to re-register your student(s) and pay all fees. Due to demand in some classes, your child is forfeiting their placement in class once withdrawn. We cannot guarantee their position upon return if the slot has been filled.
We understand our students have seasonal sports, theater, and music extracurriculars throughout the year. Unfortunately, we can no longer accommodate month-to-month scheduling. To avoid re-registering your child, we do offer the option to purchase a "Drop-In Punch Card" for $60. This punch card has five classes available on it to use at your discretion ($12/class). These cards do not expire.
