Payment of Fees:   

Tuition can be paid by

  • Cash
  • Check payable to Stars of Tomorrow
  • Credit/Debit Cards (We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover)
  • Auto-pay via credit card
  • PayPal

All tuition is priced annually for a 10 month dance season (September to June).   You have your choice of an Annual payment with a 5% discount or 9 Monthly installments.  There is no ā€œprice per class.ā€  All classes, regardless of the day of the week they are held on will receive the same amount of classes by years end.  If you choose the Monthly payment option, please understand, Monthly installments have no reflection on the amount of classes held during that month, as there are only 9 payments for a 10 month season.  Late registration will be pro-rated.

Autopay is required for all online registration.  Autopay will run on the 1st of each month.  You may pay your tuition by cash, check or alternate credit card in advance of the 1st to avoid autopay charges to your card.

Regardless of billing preference, a one-month installment and annual registration fee is due to hold your spot in any class upon registration.

Tuition is due on the 1st of each month.  There is a 10% late fee on all tuition after the 15th of the month.  No exceptions.  This amount will accrue each month as long as tuition remains unpaid.  Account balances of 60 days or more will be suspended from program enrollment.

Returned check fees are $30 per check.  All uncollected fees will be turned over to a collections agency and incur a 30% collections fee.  

The enrollment period closes December 15th of each calendar year.

Withdrawals and Refunds:

If you wish to withdraw from a class at any time, a withdrawal slip must be completed by the parent or guardian.  Phone messages or emails will not be accepted as proof of withdrawal. Withdrawals must be done through the front desk and not with a teacher. If you have chosen to participate in the recital, your withdrawal deadline is March 1st after which you will be responsible for remaining tuition through the May 15th payment due date. There are no refunds on tuition or costumes.  Unused tuition can be kept for future use.  To withdraw from classes a parent or adult student must:

1. Inform studio office staff.
2. Complete and sign a withdrawal form provided by the school office.

You will be held accountable for tuition charged to your account until the date that the withdrawal form is received by our office, regardless of classes attended/not attended prior to that date.  Your registration fee is non-refundable.

 Recital Costumes:
Costume fees are due November 15th.  Participation in our recital is not required, however once payments are made, no refunds are available, whether you choose to participate in the recital or not.  Costumes will not be ordered until fees are paid in full.  Costumes cannot be exchanged or refunded.  Alterations are not usually necessary; however, should you require alterations, they are not included in the price of the costume.  Costumes include required tights.

Combo Classes 1-4, Rising Stars Hip Hop & Pre-Ballet $75.00           Combo 5 and All Level Classes: $85.00

Any costumes that need to be ordered after the deadline will incur a $10 per costume additional processing/shipping fee. 

Dress Code:
A class specific dress code is available on our Class Descriptions page and will be specified to you upon confirmation of registration and class schedule.  The required dance attire and footwear must be worn to all classes. Failure to wear required dancewear to class can inhibit the learning process and will result in student being asked to sit out the class. Repeated failure to follow dress code will result in termination of lessons.  For hygienic reasons, please do not allow students to wear the dance shoes outside of the studio.

 Attendance and Lateness:
All absences should be called or emailed in to the office.  Any student who misses their regular class is permitted to take a make-up at another class during the week.  Make-up classes need to be scheduled in advance with the front desk.  In classes that have reached enrollment capacity we have a limited number of makeups available and it is important that all makeups be accounted for.  Missed classes can be made up at any time throughout the season.  Makeup classes are a courtesy, not an obligation, but are always recommended, as they will help the student catch up on any missed material.  Any student, who arrives late to class, after the warm-up portion of the class (approximately the first 10-15 minutes), will not be permitted to participate and will be asked to observe instead. A minimum attendance standard will be required.  Students missing more than 8 classes after January 1st will not be allowed to participate in the recital.  In such a case, no refunds will be given for costume fees or tuition.

 Care of Students:
The school is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students or their siblings.   Students are not to be left at school for excessive time periods before or after their classes.  Siblings must be in the care of a parent at all times.  Please know that in the case of a fire or other emergency, our staff can only be accountable for students participating in a class and recorded in the attendance roster.  Young students should be escorted to and from the building. 

In-Studio Guidelines:

  • Quiet in hallways while classes are in progress
  • No cell phones permitted in the studios
  • No food or drinks permitted in the studios with the exception of water
  • ABSOLUTELY NO GUM ANYWHERE
  • No swearing or use of foul language
