duet Dance Academy ReCREATIONAL PROGRAM POLICIES
Below are our Recreational Program Policies. By registering for classes you are agreeing to these policies.
Registration fees and tuition payments are non-refundable
There will be no prorating or refunds given due to missed classes.
Each student is encouraged to make up missed classes in another appropriate leveled class.
In the event the studio is forced to close for a period of time or is otherwise prohibited from having in-person classes, for example, due to a pandemic or health related emergency, Duet may, at its sole discretion, utilize on-line learning techniques (e.g., video conference, recorded video sessions, etc.) in lieu of traditional in-person classes.
Duet Dance Academy's primary form of communication is via email. It is your responsibility to make sure that we have your correct email address so that you receive our communications. You can update your email address on file at any time by logging into your account on our Parent Portal, or by notifying us at the front desk.
Registration is accepted on a first come first serve basis.
Registration may be done online or at the studio.
Classes will be closed to further enrollment once maximum capacity has been reached.
An annual registration fee of $45 per student will be collected at the time of enrollment plus first and last month's tuition payment. ($25 registration fee for additional students in same family)
Thirty days written notice must be given to withdraw from a class. You will be responsible for the next tuition payment if you do not give notice 30 days before tuition is due. No prorating or refunds will be issued due to withdrawing from classes.
Dance Class Tuition Policy
Tuition is a monthly fee due on the first of each month. All families must have a credit or debit card on file from which tuition and other fees are drafted on due dates. If payment is not received by the 5th, a $15 late fee will automatically be added to the account. We use an automatic payment system that will charge your credit or debit card on file on the 1st of each month. All charges will appear on your bank or credit card statement as being from Duet Dance. A $25 NSF fee will apply if payment is declined on the card on file.
Tuition is based on a 35 week dance year. Payments are broken up into 10 monthly payments. There are no tuition adjustments on a monthly basis based on the number of times classes meet. Some months will have 5 classes while others may have 3 due to holidays and school closings.
Students enrolling before the 15th of the month will be charged the full month’s tuition for that month. Students enrolling after the 15th of the month will be charged half the monthly tuition for that month.
Dance Class Discounts
We offer a sibling discount of 10% off additional children’s monthly tuition in the same family/household.

The Recreational Program Fee is $125 for each student enrolled in a Recreational Class.
Recreational program fees are deemed due when you register for class and will be charged to the credit/debit card on file with the January tuition payment on January 1.
