Tuition & Info
Fall 2017 information will be posted in July. Spring 2017 information appears below for your reference.
Spring Semester General Information:
Our spring semester will be nineteen weeks, from January 17th through May 27th , and will focus on preparation for the annual performance.
Spring tuition breaks down as follows:
19 classes x $14/class + a non-refundable $10 registration fee per class: $276/class for the spring semester. (As always, should payment ever be a problem, please contact Angela.)
We will maintain discounts for multiple classes or siblings as follows:
- For two classes or two dancers per family: 10% off the semester
- For three classes or three dancers per family: 15% off the semester
- For four classes or four dancers per family: 20% off the semester
- For five classes or five dancers per family, 25% off the semester, etc.
Please note that multi-class discounts are only available when paying for multiple classes in the same transaction. Additional classes added later will be discounted (second class 10% off, third class 15% off, etc.) but the earlier classes will not be retroactively discounted.
2017 Performance Information:
-Registering for the spring semester allows you to attend nineteen weeks of classes. Students who wish to participate in the performance (which we highly encourage) will be billed a $30 performance fee in March (discounts are available for multiple dancers from the same family), which replaces any ticket costs for their family. Additionally, students who elect to perform will need to purchase costumes (which generally run around $40-50/child/class).
Registration & Refunds
REFUNDS: The $10 registration fee per class is never refundable. Refunds on the balance of tuition are not available after the third week of class. If a student needs to withdraw from the class past the third week, credit will be given for the remainder of classes in the semester from the starting point of notification.
PRO-RATE POLICY: Students who register after the first week of class will be pro-rated for the value of the missed classes at the rate of $14/class. Please note that no new students will be allowed to register for the spring semester after the end of March as they will be too far behind on learning their performance dances.
TO TRY A CLASS: There are no 'drop-ins'; however, if a dancer would like to try taking one class before committing to the whole session and there is a space available in the desired class, he or she may do so, once, for $14. Note: This does not reserve your space in the class; you must register for the class to reserve your spot and it is possible the class will fill before you do so.
RETURNING STUDENTS: We do not offer automatic re-enrollment from fall to spring or spring to the following fall. To enroll in a class, you must register for each semester.
Class age restrictions are enforced. When you register for a class, an email confirmation will be sent to you from activityhero.com. You will not receive a call from us unless there is a problem with your registration or the class is full.
Although our general philosophy is to keep the emphasis on having fun, we do have a few guidelines to help the studio run more smoothly for everyone:
Dress Code: Students should wear proper dance attire. Steppin’ Out does not have a uniform, but students might choose to wear leotards, tights, leggings, dance pants, tank top, dance skirt, tutus, or fitted t-shirts. Any combination, color or pattern is fine. No jeans please. Please wear appropriate shoes for the style of your class (tap shoes, ballet shoes, jazz shoes, etc.).
Observation Policy: Drop off at the studio is highly encouraged (especially for dancers aged eight and older). This is to limit student distractions so that students may get the most out of their hour. We do love when extended family members come to visit and welcome parents to occasionally observe class, but we need to limit the number of regular spectators during class time as parents chatting and siblings playing have become quite distracting for our dancers and teachers given the space limitations of the studio.
Punctuality & Attendance: Dancers are expected to arrive on time and attend class regularly, especially in preparation for the annual performance.
