*Monthly installments are based on session tuition divided into equal payments.*
anyBODY can dance
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.
The number of classes in any month does not change your monthly tuition installment obligation. If you choose to take advantage of our monthly tuition installments opposed to paying tuition in full at the time or registration your financial obligation does not change regardless of your attendance. We do not offer early withdrawal for either of our sessions. Tuition is not calculated on a per class basis. Tuition has been calculated to include holidays, school vacations, occasional cancellation due to inclement weather, or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. Make-up classes are not scheduled for missed classes unless a single class has been cancelled three of more times in a session. We do offer an open week of classes the last week of our dance season where all dancers are welcome to join any class that is age and skill level appropriate.
First payment plus annual registration fee is due upon registering. A place in class will not be secured until these payments are made. Please note there are no refunds, transfers or credits given for early withdrawals. (See Refund Policy). All monthly payment installments 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 the 7 day grace period. 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 with SIMDA. If the balance is deemed uncollectable after good faith attempts to collect by Spirit in Motion all balances will be forwarded to All Debt Solutions for collection.
Spirit In Motion regrets there are no refunds of session tuition or registration fee unless SIMDA cancels a class for the session due to low enrollment. Once enrolled, students are charged for the full amount of the tuition for the remainder of the session regardless of their ability to attend. 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 students who miss class(es) or for holidays, vacation weeks, occasional cancellation due to inclement weather, staff illness, or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. There will be no refunds on costumes, you may opt out of recital but once a costume is ordered you are responsible for the balance. Any credit issued on an account will be applied to any 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 dancer’s to enter and prepare for class. Teacher’s are in classrooms and will not be able to supervise dancer’s that are dropped early or that are not picked up at the end of their scheduled class. Parents are responsible for notifying the studio owners immediately if they have an emergency to ensure SIMDA staff is able to supervise their dancer when their dancer is not in their scheduled class. It is required that dancers under twelve years of age have an adult come in to pick up their dancer at the end of their scheduled class. SIMDA does not allow younger dancers to exit the building without supervision. SIMDA staff are not responsible for walking dancers to vehicles at the end of class.
Please enter the studio waiting area through the backdoor with our logo which is located at the back of the building. We do not allow dancers to 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. There is no parking allowed along the fence located outside of our back door. This road is an emergency access road and needs to be clear of parked vehicles. Parking along the fence will narrow the road way and can be a danger to our dancers entering and exiting the building!
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 email@example.com or by calling the business line. We are very responsive with our communication and continuously respond to email, phone calls, and voicemail. 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.
