Discounts are given based on the number of classes taken per month and for families as well (families including siblings only). Discounts are also given if the student's dance tuition is paid in full by the end of September. Tuition must be paid for the seven months of the dance year and the eighth month is free.

*Class fees are calculated by the number of classes taken each week. Take an additional $10.00 off per additional family member per month.
*There are different rates for the Douglas Dolls and Douglas Darlings Dance Companies due to the amount of time they spend in dance each week, email Jill for more information on these rates.
DANCE COMPANY ~ Intermediate Dance Company, at two hours per week, it's $60 per month. Due to advanced dance company members having individual private lessons included in the tuition, those rates change a little bit. Private lessons are normally $60 per hour, since it's included with dance company for two half hour classes every month (this includes solo, duets, trios and small groups), an additional discounted rate of $30 is added. The total cost for advanced dance company tuition each month is $110. The first additional class is $20, the second additional class is $10. Private lessons are not included with intermediate dance company. But if you'd like to schedule some please feel free to contact me. Any money left over from the fundraising account will become a credit on your family account if the student chooses to NOT continue with dance company the following year.
Private Lessons ~ $60 per hour/$30 for a half hour class (this includes private lessons for solos, duets, trios & small groups)
Payment of Fees:
Registration fees and Tuition Fees will be paid to Jill's Dance Studio. Tuition is due on the 1st of the month, after the 5th a $10.00 late fee will be added. Each student's tuition must be paid in full monthly regardless of attendance (except in cases of medical emergencies and injuries). Dancers pay a flat monthly rate although the calendar may sometimes give dancers extra classes. This offsets classes missed due to holidays. We accept cash, check or all major credit cards. If dance tuition is paid in full for the year one month is free.
Required dance shoes and clothing must be worn to all classes. Hair must be pulled away from face unless otherwise specified on the Dress Code sheet. Please no jewelry, for safety reasons.
Attendance and Lateness:
Unless a student's tardiness has already been cleared with the instructor ahead of time, a student's lateness is not acceptable. The student will have two verbal warnings and then will have to sit out the class during the third time. If a student is going to miss a class due to being sick or for other reasons, the studio must be notified the day of class. If an instructor has to miss a class and a substitute teacher is not available, all students will be notified that class is cancelled. Parents will be notified of the time and day of the makeup class. If any student misses a class for two weeks without notifying the dance studio owner they will be removed from the class.
Withdrawals and Refunds:
Students will be automatically enrolled each month unless we receive a written notice of withdrawal thirty days prior to the student no longer attending. All refunds are up to the discretion on the owner. If a refund is given it will take 6-8 weeks to process. Costumes fees are non-refundable and delivery of costumes to students who have broken their contract is entirely up to the owner.
I will abide by the policies and procedures stated above.
