POLICIES & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Tuition Policies

A $50 registration fee per dancer is due upon registering to reserve space in the class. This fee is non-refundable, and class space is not reserved until this fee is paid. 

You will receive a confirmation email when your registration has been processed by our office. 

All classes must be registered for online by clicking here or in the studio during our office hours. No registrations will be processed via phone. 

Tuition is due in full by the first day of class. If tuition is not paid in full by the end of the first month, your child will not be able to participate in class until payment is received. Tarrytown Dance does not pro-rate for late registrants or missed classes. We can keep credit cards on file, however we do not automatically charge them to cover tuition. The office must receive your permission in order to use your credit card on file to cover any outstanding balances. 

There is a $25.00 late fee on all accounts not paid in full by the end of the first month of classes. Late fees will be enforced. There is a $20.00 returned check fee.

Tarrytown Dance DOES NOT email statements until an account is considered past due and late fees apply.

For students who drop their class in the first 6 weeks of a semester a 50% refund will be granted for the remaining full months left in the semester. There is no refund for classes dropped after 7 weeks or later in a semester. 

 

Class Policies

Class changes and drops MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE IN WRITING.

Tarrytown Dance reserves the right to cancel classes with low enrollment.

Students are placed in class according to age and ability. Instructors have the right to move your child if they feel that another level is more appropriate.

Missed classes may be made up by attending another comparable class during the week. Instructor permission must be received before a make-up class may be attended.

For our dancers’ safety, students may not be dropped at the studio more than five minutes before class time and must be picked up promptly after class. Young dancers may not be left unattended at any time. 

Any student who is more than ten minutes late may be asked to sit and observe class by the instructor.

All instructors reserve the right to ask a student who is disrupting class to leave.

Observers and parents are not allowed to disrupt the instructor/class at any time unless there is an emergency.

Please schedule meetings with instructors through the office. During and between class times instructors are not permitted to leave their classes unattended to speak to parents. It is best to meet privately when the instructor may spend adequate time discussing your questions/concerns.

Absolutely no gum, food, or drinks are allowed in the dance rooms.

Classes run between 45 minutes to an hour and a half depending on age, level, and class size. Depending on the room, classes will be full when 12-16 dancers have registered. Classes with fewer than 5 students are subject to cancellation.  

 

F.A.Q.

What are the class rates?

Please call our studio or email for current class rates.

How do I pay my tuition? 

Tuition is due the first day of class. We accept all credit cards, cash, or check. Once your online account has been made you may pay online with a credit card. To create an account click here.

Can I watch my dancer's class?

We do not allow anyone to watch classes from inside the dance rooms. However, there are viewing windows provided to allow you to watch your dancer. We also have a program called "Watch Me Dance" where parent's receive a secure log in to view their dancer's class online. Please call or email for more information.

Is the studio open on holidays (i.e. Presidents Day)?

Click here to see studio closing dates for the entire year.

What if my dancer wants to drop a class? 

All class cancellations must be received by the office in writing. Letting an instructor know, or just not showing up to class anymore is not sufficient. If a class is dropped within the first two weeks of the semester, you may receive a full tuition refund. After the first two weeks of the semester, you will receive a 50% refund for the remaining months of class. 

Is there a spring show? 

We hold a spring recital in May each year. All participation is voluntary, and each performer is required to pay recital participation and costume fees.
