Safer Studio Policy:
SDA requires all staff and students to stay home when they are ill. In order to reduce community spread Coronavirus, we follow best practices and recommendations from our local health department and from our industry associations, YPAD and More than Just Great Dancing. SDA understands that unlike older children and adults, young children cannot be expected to maintain social distancing at all times. Therefore SDA focuses on a hierarchy of measures beginning with keeping ill people home, followed by frequent hand cleaning and sanitizing, amplified cleaning, and curricular and facility adaptations to minimize contact and mingling where possible. All studio classes are backed up on an online learning platform. In the event a class is unable to be held at the studio classes will convert to online learning platform until in-studio classes can resume.
Tuition is due on the 1st of every month. If payment is not received by the 3rd of the month the card on file will automatically be charged and a late fee of $15 will be added to the tuition amount.
There is a $25 fee for bounced checks.
It is understood that there is an annual non refundable registration fee of $30.00 which is due at the first enrollment of the student each year.
There will be no refunds/ deductions for missed lessons. There will be no refunds due to cancelations from inclement weather or wildfires. There will be no refunds in the event of a pandemic or for classes that are converted to online in the event of governmental advisory. Tuition is non refundable and non transferable unless there is a valid document or documented medical condition or emergency .Tuition is charged monthly on the 1st of each month. There is no pro-rating for months with 3 weeks or those with 5 weeks.
If you choose not to continue at any time, you must fill out an ADD/DROP form by the 20th of the month or send an email to email@example.com in order to stop the recurring charge from being billed for the next month. Any ADD/DROP forms filled out or emails sent after the 20th will result in the recurring charge being processed as usual.
There are no credits, refunds, or extensions for holidays or missed classes. We do not prorate if you are absent or away on vacation, or for regular studio closures but we do allow makeup classes within 30 days of your missed class. You may make up any class that is at your specific level. Ex: Miss a jazz class in level 1, you can make up that class in a level 1 hip hop class.
