Registration (Non-Refundable)- A $25.00/dancer, $40/family of two, (+$10 for each additional family member) annual registration fee is required with the application form to reserve class space. Registration is not considered complete until this fee is paid.
Tuition (Non-Refundable)- Tuition is due by the 1st of each month. A $15.00 late fee will be applied to any tuition paid after the 5th day of the month. For any account that is not current, the student will be asked to sit and observe the class until the account is current. Any unpaid fees that extend beyond a 30-day period will receive an additional $15 late fee. Balances extending beyond a 60-day period will be turned over to small claims and your dance account will be terminated. If a student is absent, it does not change the due date of a payment or the total amount due per month (we do not prorate). Note: Tuition prices have changed effective August 1st, 2019.
Cancellation/Withdrawal Policy- Parents MUST fill out a cancellation statement, in person, by the first of the month. Verbal and electronic statements are not considered valid forms of cancellation. If forms are not completed by the first of the month, you will be charged for the upcoming month. No exceptions. This includes dropping classes and/or leaving the studio. You must have a face to face meeting with Ms. Butler before the first of the month to sign off on cancellation forms. If you wish to return, you must pay a reactivation fee of $25 per child AND your previous remaining balance if applicable. Spots will not be held. Cancellation forms will be available at the front desk.
Absences/Late Policy- Parents are responsible for reporting dancer's absences from classes. If students are more than 15 minutes late to class, they may not participate. There will be absolutely no refunds for missed classes. For all absences, please email ChasseCenterofDance@gmail.com at least 24 hours prior to the start of dance class unless reporting an unforeseen emergency. If a student is absent three consecutive classes without notification, via email, they will automatically be withdrawn from the class roster. See cancellation policy above for re-registering.
Pick-Up Policy- Classes will end 5-10 minutes before the end of the hour. Approved rides must be present 10 minutes prior to the end of class. Parents must wait in the lobby to retrieve students from class. Please do not enter classes. There is a $15 late fee +$1 per minute for every fifteen minutes that dancers are picked up after the end of their class time (i.e. 5:18 pm=$18 late fee). Siblings/family members (minors) may not wait around the facility unsupervised. If a student's dance session is over, they may not wait in the facility while another student finishes classes. Students may also not be dropped off early to wait around unsupervised. Parents are welcomed to quietly sit in the lobby area. Please limit additional guests/siblings and be sure they are adhering to studio behavioral guidelines as well.

Student Behavior- Participants in Chassé Center of Dance LLC classes are expected to exhibit upstanding behavior before, during, and after scheduled classes. Students will be on a three strike system. Should a student receive three infractions, they will not be permitted to attend the following class (no refunds for missed classes).

Should a student break this rule, electronics will be confiscated and returned to the parent/guardian at pickup.
Parental Support/Expectations- Parents are expected to remain in constant communication with our staff as it pertains to Chassé Center of Dance LLC.

Please be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram as well for updates! Please DO NOT call the studio number during class times. Once classes have begun, we are unable to answer questions or concerns about tuition, schedules, studio directions, etc. This is unfair to the students who are taking the current class if the instructor has to stop and handle these concerns.
Recital Fees (Non-Refundable): Recital fees will be added into monthly tuition during the month of FEBRUARY. This fee is separate from costume fees. These fees are mandatory for all participants. Additional recital information will be presented at parent meetings. If a costume has been ordered, the customer is responsible for the full price of the costume (or costumes, if more than one was ordered).

Phone/Electronic Policy: Students may not use electronics during class time or breaks. Phones need to be left with parents or placed in the bin upon entrance of the studio. Phones must be turned off/on silent (not vibrate) and students will only be allowed to retrieve them at the END of their dance session. Teachers have the right to confiscate electronics should this rule be broken and will return directly to parents at dismissal/pick-up. Chassé Center of Dance LLC is not responsible for lost, stolen, cracked or broken electronic devices. If you worry it will be damaged, please leave it in the car!

Sessions are no longer than 3 hours maximum and do not require eating between classes.
Please Note: ALL dancers MUST be potty trained; no exceptions. Due to sanitary and privacy concerns, the staff is not responsible for students who are unable to use the bathroom on their own. Parents should assist students with a bathroom tr
