Annual registration fee for all family members is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable for all programs at Starstruck & Dream Pointe - see class schedule for current rate. Students may register in person or on-line.
A debit or credit card is required to be on file when registering. Two options are currently available for payment of tuition. The first method is by autopay where client authorizes Starstruck to automatically debit a charge card (Visa/Mastercard/Discover/Amex) or a checking account for each month enrolled. Charges/debits will be automatically processed the 5th of each month. Charges/debits shown on your bank or credit card statement will act as your receipt. Clients must mark "autopay" on registration form and fill out authorization form before autopay will go into affect available at the front desk. Autopays must be renewed every year with new paperwork. Previous year's paperwork will be shredded.
The second method of payment available is the traditional method of paying tuition by submitting payment by check, money order or credit card by the first lesson of the month. An irreversible $15.00 late fee will be added for payments made after the 10th of the month. If payment is not made by the 11th, fees and late fees will be charged to card on file. Classes are to be paid for in advance. To avoid late fees, the academy recommends clients choose autopay as it is hassle-free for both parent and academy.
A $15.00 fee will be charged on all returned checks or declined charges/debits. Tuition payments are paid by month, not by the number of lessons within the month. No class that is missed can be credited to the next month or subtracted from the monthly payment. Cash payments require a receipt and must be given directly to office staff. Teachers cannot accept payments of any kind. Dancewear, merchandise, recital fee, photo fees, and other misc. expenditures are not included in tuition and costume payments and must be paid separately.
Recital fee will be charged & will include a certain number of tickets to recital. Any additional tickets will be sold as needed. The fee is charged to pay for facility rental and is required for all performing students. Recital fee is due in full by February 28th. Prop fees are not included with the costume and will be charged in April if applicable. Dancewear, Starstruck merchandise, competition fees, recital fees, photo fees, and other misc. expenditures are not included in tuition and costume payments and must be paid separately.
A recital costume for each class performing in the recital must be paid in full by December 31st or a costume will not be ordered. Costumes will be charged to client accounts upon registering. Costumes may be purchased upfront or payments made September through December via client's own personal account on-line. Costume payments are separate from tuition payments and are not included in autopay. Check class schedule for current costume prices. Students will be measured for costume size prior to ordering. Costumes are non-exchangeable. No refunds on costumes after January 1st even if student withdraws. Costumes are not custom-made and may require alterations. Since costumes are ordered, some accessories will need to be attached by parent. We select the highest quality costume for the price. These are not made for everyday use and must be cared for accordingly. Those registering after January 1st may not have costumes in time for recital photos. Costumes will not be distributed until account is current.
One-month notice is required to withdraw from classes. Withdrawal must be done at the Starstruck office and not with the teacher and must occur within the first five days of the month.

To withdraw from classes a parent or adult student must: 1) Inform administration, and 2) Complete and sign a Withdrawal Form provided by the studio office. Autopay clients will be removed from the autopay system after the one-month notice period. Any unpaid balances will be charged prior to discontinuance of autopay.
