*Monthly installments are based on session tuition divided into equal payments.*
AnyBODY can Dance
Our Spirit Promise
There is no reason not to give dance a try! As a new dancer joining our studio, if you decide we aren’t the right fit for you in the first month of classes and wish to withdraw, you will be not be held to the session tuition commitment.
First session tuition is based on instruction from September to December.
Second session tuition is based on instruction from January to June.
Once you enroll your financial obligation is the entire session in which you have enrolled. We do not issue refunds or credits for early withdrawal outside of our Spirit Promise.
We offer our families two ways to pay the session tuition.
Session tuition paid in FULL at the time of registration.
We offer tuition installments due the first of every month throughout your entire session.
Session One: Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec
Session Two: Jan, Feb, March, April, May, June
Tuition is calculated to include holidays, vacation weeks, occasional cancellation due to inclement weather, staff illness, or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. Tuition is NOT calculated on a per class basis or monthly basis.
Installment toward tuition does not change regardless of attendance or the number of classes in any given month throughout the session.
We do not offer early withdrawal for either of our sessions. We are not able to honor requests to suspend tuition for any reason.
We do not offer month to month enrollment. Although, you may choose to pay in installments opposed to in full at the time of registration your financial obligation and installments will continue through an entire session.
Make-up classes are not scheduled for missed classes unless a single class has been canceled for weather or unforeseen circumstances multiple times in a session.
Make-up classes, refunds or credits are not offered for dancers that miss class for personal reasons. We do offer an open week of classes the last week of our dance sessions where all dancers are welcome to join any class that is age and skill level appropriate.
*There is no refund or credits issued for classes missed due to an outstanding balance.
Payment plus annual registration fee is due upon registering. A place in class will not be secured until these payments are made. All payment plans are due the first of every month and invoices are sent to the email you provided at registration. A late fee of $15.00 per student account will be automatically added to payments received after a 7 day grace period and will accrue until the balance is paid in full. Returned checks will be charged a $35.00 fee. Any outstanding balance may result in dismissal from class until balance is paid. Once a dancer is dismissed from class, tuition must be paid in full in order to continue dancing at SIMDA. A balance is deemed uncollectable after Spirit in Motion has made good faith efforts to collect and will be forwarded to All Debt Solutions for collection on our behalf.
There are no refunds for session tuition or registration fee unless in the event SIMDA cancels a class for the session due to low enrollment. There is no refund or credits issued for classes missed due to an outstanding balance. Reimbursements or make-up class will not be given to dancers who miss class(es) for personal reasons. There will be no refunds on costumes. Any credit issued on an account will be applied to the balance on the account prior to a refund being issued.
Our ages and skill levels posted are a guide. SIMDA reserves the right to determine proper placement based on the skill level of the student at time of enrollment. Adjustments can be made through the year to best serve the success of the dancer at SIMDA's discretion. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will help you find the class that is the right fit for your dancer!
The studio will be open five minutes prior to the first scheduled class of the day to allow dancers to enter and prepare for class. Please enter the studio waiting area through the backdoor located at the back of the building (look for our logo). We ask dancers to not enter at the store front as street shoes are not allowed on the dance floor. There is plenty of parking located in the side lot directly past the backdoor. Please do not park along the fence, this narrows the road way and can be a danger to our dancers entering and exiting the building! Guests are welcome to watch class through our viewing window! Dancers should bring water to class. Don’t worry, if you forget we have cups in the waiting room.
We use email to communicate with our families. Please provide an email address when completing registration and be sure to select send emails to family. If you choose not to select send emails to family you will miss all studio communications. In the event of cancellation we communicate via email so it is important to have a valid email in your dancer’s portal and select send emails to family. It is important that you check your email as we will not send out fliers, make phone call/text families regarding invoices, late payments, deadlines, news, events or other studio related information.
All questions and communication should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the business line. We are very responsive with our communication and continuously respond to email, phone calls, and voicemail. We are not able to respond to instant messages or texts. Please do not disturb teachers during class other than for an emergency situation. Teachers are in the classrooms teaching and every dancer deserves the focus and attention of their teacher during scheduled class time.
Weather Related Cancellation
We watch all weather closely when the forecast is in question. We will email classes at least one to two hours prior to canceling if we feel our dance families or staff can not get to the studio safely. We do not follow school cancellations as often road conditions can change throughout the day. Tuition has been calculated to include a reasonable number of New England weather related cancellations. We understand families may choose to not attend class for weather related reasons as each town’s weather can vary quite drastically. We want all our dancers and families to be safe.
