HomeAbout UsPoliciesTuition Information



All tuition is due monthly in advance. Please send checks the first lesson of each month. Statements will be sent by request or if an account becomes overdue. There will be a late charge of $20.00 per month for accounts not paid by the 15th of each month. If an outstanding balance is accumulated, a written agreement must be signed for a payment plan including a 10% interest charge. If you have difficulty making a payment and cannot meet these conditions, contact the Business Managers, Heather Appenfeller or Cheryl Rogers, for a special circumstance arrangement. We will make every effort to work out an acceptable payment plan with you, but we expect you to take the initiative.

Please do not include apparel payment with lesson fee. To insure proper credit, always write the full name of the student on your check. Keep canceled checks as your receipt. If you pay by cash, you will receive a receipt. Please bring the exact amount (we do not keep cash for change on the premises) to the studio office during office hours (Monday 3:30-8:30, Tuesday 4:30-8:30, Wednesday 4:30-8:30, and Thursday 4:00-8:30, and Saturday 8:30-12:30). There is no one in the office on Friday. We accept all major credit cards via the square reader.

Tuition is charged on a monthly basis regardless of the number of classes in a given month. Our schedule is arranged so each student attends 32 class weeks (8 months) total. No refunds will be given for missed classes although classes can be made up. A full month’s tuition is to be paid in September that will also cover December (½ month tuition each). No additional tuition will be charged in December. Tuition payments can either be placed in the “tuition mail-slot” (by the school office) or mailed. Do not give payments to the instructor. Cash payments must receive a receipt from the office. All returned checks will be assessed a $25.00 service charge.
