After initial payment of registration & September tuition, tuition will be processed on the first of every month, starting October 1st . The first month of tuition, and registration fee payment, are due upon signing and accepting of this contract. A 5% late fee will be assessed to any tuition or fees not paid on dates due.
Monthly dance tuition is based on a guaranteed minimum of thirty (30) hours of instruction provided over a ten month period from September through the end of June (see studio calendar for details). Total school-year tuition is divided into ten equal installments regardless of how many classes take place in a calendar month, payable on the first of each month in advance via automated credit card, debit card, or automated check.
Families without or choosing to not pay with a credit card must provide a series of post-dated checks for tuition and fees dated for the first day of each month due (October 1 to June 1). Checks should be made payable to JAMZ Dance Studio, LLC. No class schedule will be confirmed without receipt of a credit card number, or all post-dated checks.
Returned checks will be charged a $25.00 returned check fee per number of times the bank attempts to deposit your check (Often the bank will try to clear a check twice, resulting in a total returned check fee of $40.00). A returned check may result in JAMZ requiring future tuition to be paid via credit card, cash, or money order on or before the first of each month. Failure to do so will result in removal from class(es).
Please note: JAMZ Dance Center does not mail out monthly invoices for tuition payments. At any time you may log in to your account online via our website to review your balance and see posted charges. Please ask the front desk staff to email a temporary password if you have forgotten yours. We can also email you a copy of your account statement upon your request.
All customers MUST have a zero balance on their account by the date of showcase. Failure to do so will result in student(s) being withheld from performing in the show. ONLY CREDIT CARDS AND CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED AS PAYMENT AFTER JUNE 1st .
JAMZ has retained a collection agency to assist in obtaining past due balances, and will pursue this avenue in the event of non-payment.

It is the responsibility of the parent, guardian, or adult student to be aware of all school activities such as: rehearsals, recitals/showcases, picture days, extra classes, and dates the school is open and closed. The school will provide monthly email newsletters with all information needed for upcoming months, and frequently updates its website and social media. It is the parent's or adult student's responsibility to regularly check these emails and/or studio website to ensure they are informed. Most of our communication is done through email (including receipts for payments). No email should ever be overlooked and all should be read thoroughly. JAMZ Dance Studio is not responsible for updating people through paper communication or personal meetings. It is also the responsibility of the parent, guardian, or adult student to inform the school of any address, phone, or email changes.
I understand JAMZ communicates almost entirely through email, and it is my responsibility to notify the front desk if I am not receiving newsletters, receipts, and other emails. I also understand it is not the responsibility of teachers to distribute information.
