TUITION & FINANCIAL
POLICIES

Financial Policies

We are a 10 month program, September through our mid-June performance, based on an average of 38 weeks per year. While we are a 10 month program, we bill monthly. If there are five classes per month we do not charge extra, and if there are less we do not give credit. We do not charge for show week rehearsals or any extra rehearsals that a specific class may need to be prepared.

Tuition Payments

Tuition is due the 1st of each month with methods accepted credit/debit card through parent portal or check via mail. Due to COVID safety measures, we no longer accept in-house payments. Two payment methods MUST be stored on file through your parent portal (Jackrabbit). Methods accepted are bank drafts, debit and credit cards. If no payment is made by the 5th of each month, your tuition fee will be charged to your primary method on file. If this card is denied, your secondary payment method will be drafted. ​

Refunds will only be issued at the beginning of each month (no mid-month proration) and written notification to lfsdwebster@gmail.com must be made two weeks in advance of refund request. If we do not hear from you within that time, a refund may not be given as your child has held that spot.

Drops/Outstanding Accounts

We will hold your child’s spot for two weeks with an outstanding balance. After that time, we will make our best effort to contact you. If we do not hear from you, your child will be un-enrolled. We cannot guarantee her/his spot in the same class if you you wish to return, so please keep in touch. We will help in any way possible to keep your child learning and moving!

​Costume Deposit
A costume fee is required for your dancer’s Spring Show costume. Costumes fees are $70 plus tax per class/dance.

On the dates listed above, we will begin auto-drafting your portal for one costume fee of $70 plus tax per month until all fees have been paid in full. We begin collecting costume payments in November to ensure that we can order costumes in time to prepare them for the Spring show. The number of fees will vary depending on the class(es) your dancer is enrolled. Typically, combo classes will have two fees as they perform two separate performance pieces. Most other classes will only have one deposit. Please refer to your email and portal for this information as it becomes available.

Performance Fee
A performance fee is charged for families based on the number of performance pieces. There is much time and supplies needed to order and professionally organize and distribute each dancer’s special costume beyond the “costume cost” charged. We also have an on-site seamstress for all performances. This fee covers these costs.

$10 per Single Class or $15 per Combo Class (Maximum Charge is $30 per family)
