Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I pay my tuition?
A: Tuition is due by the first class of each month. Statements will be sent through your parent portal by request or if an account becomes overdue. Tuition may be paid by check, cash, credit card, or ACH. To ensure 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 from the office. Please bring the exact amount (we do not keep cash for change on the premises) to the studio during office hours (Monday – Thursday 4:30-8:30 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 at the studio office. Studio payments may also be made reoccurring and automatically through your parent portal. 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.
Q: Do you offer any tuition discounts?
A: Families with two or more children taking a total of five to seven hours weekly will receive a ten percent discount monthly. Families taking more than seven hours weekly will receive a fifteen percent discount monthly. Payment plans may be arranged by contacting our business manager or her assistants during office hours.
