Dance, Art & Drama Classes: The tuition rates have been evenly divided for the 10 month school year (9 for drama and art), including holidays, at a fixed monthly rate. Tuition is due and payable the 1st of each month. By completion of the automatic payment section, you are authorizing automatic withdrawal of the tuition on the 1st of the month as well as any other stated fees (see below). Any account not paid by the 7th of the month will incur a $15.00 late fee. Tuition will be prorated for the first month of enrollment only. There is a $25.00 charge for all returned checks. After two returned checks, only cash, credit card, or money order required.
In order to avoid any unforeseen billing surprises for our families, students whose accounts have not been paid for 2 consecutive months will be dropped from their classes and the student(s) will not be allowed to participate in any class. In order to be reinstated, all unpaid balances and fees must be paid.
If any student is dropping a class or dropping from the studio, the parent must fill out a withdrawal form, located at the front desk, BEFORE the beginning of the month or the account will be billed for the month.
No phone calls will be accepted as notice of withdrawal.

Absences are generally discouraged. If the student must be absent, please call the studio at (703) 878-1000 and leave word for the teacher. IF there is a twin class available, students are encouraged to make up their missed classes by filling out a Make-up card located at the front desk. Ages 10 and over may make up a missed class in one of the support classes. The class must be made up within 30 days. However, whether you make up the class or not, the monthly fee remains the same. There will not be any refunds or credits for missed classes.

HOLIDAY AND EMERGENCY CLOSINGS
Classes are held on most minor holidays. We will post signs in the studio and on the website (www.DanceEtc.com) for any pre-determined closings. We will also include closing dates in the newsletters. In the event of inclement weather, please call the studio or visit us on Facebook or Instagram to confirm whether or not we will hold classes. (703-878-1000 ext. 3) We do not necessarily close when Prince William County Schools close. Holiday closings are already taken into consideration regarding tuition charges and will not be made up or credited.
We send newsletters via e-mail from October through May as well as have hard copies on hand in the studio. It is the best way for us to communicate with you and to make sure you have all the information you need throughout the year.
See Student Guidelines
ON TIME & READY
Please make every effort to make sure you or your child are on time for class and ready to participate. Any dancer who arrives 15 minutes late for class will not be allowed to dance. This is for the safety of the dancer. Without proper warm-up dancers are susceptible to injury. However, they should remain to observe the class. Please also make sure your child is picked up promptly after class.
Parents are encouraged to visit the first class of each month, October through February. After February, classes will be focused on learning recital choreogrophy.
The Spring Concert will be held in June. Please read the newsletters throughout the year for additional information.
All art students are asked to bring a large sketchpad, a #2 pencil and a good eraser to their class. Please bring a sample of their work to the first class so it can be evaluated to give the instructor a starting point. The art classes follow the same calendar as the drama classes.
DRAMA & MUSICAL THEATER DEPARTMENT
There will be a performance scheduled for the Drama & Musical Theater students in late May. Performance fees will apply and will be collected prior to the performance. No one will be permitted to perform unless all tuition, late fees, performance fees, etc. have been satisfied.
When students are registered for classes with Dance Etc. School of the Arts through CompuDance Software, the parents or responsible party is authorizing their credit card to be charged for the amount agreed upon.
