YOUTH PROGRAM

* 2019-2020 *

September 9, 2019-June 20, 2020

YOUTH PROGRAM TUITION & POLICIES

We strive to keep tuition affordable for all families while limiting class size to just 8 children to ensure real learning and growth. Tuition is based on a yearly amount divided by ten months, September-June, inclusive of holidays. Summer sessions occur separately.

Toddler Dance & Play (1.5-3 years)

There is no registration fee for Toddler Dance & Play class.

Pricing for this class is $26/drop-in or $199 for a Ten-Class Card. 

Youth Program Ages 3+

Registration

Registration is open year-round, assuming spots are available. There is a $25 registration fee for new youth program students. A registration form must be filled out for each child by a parent/legal guardian prior to the child's first class.

Tuition may be paid monthly or by semester for youth classes for ages 3 and up. 

Monthly Tuition:

Monthly tuition is based on the number of classes per week your child is enrolled in. The more classes s/he takes, the lower the per-class rate. For monthly tuition rates, please click here. Monthly tuition is due by the 7th of the month and can be made in cash or check at the studio or via our online store. Payments made after the 7th of the month incur a late fee of $20.

 

Semester Tuition (save 15%):

Semester tuition eliminates the need for monthly payments and grants you a discount. There are two semesters, September-January and January-June, both are five months long. Semester tuition is calculated by multiplying monthly tuition e.g. $105/month for one class/week, by the number of months in the semester (5) and subtracting 15%. Semester tuition can be paid in full or in three installments.

 

Sibling Discount:

We offer a 10% sibling discount on monthly tuition. Please note the sibling discount and semester discount cannot be combined.

Refund Policy & Late Payments

Please note registration and tuition payments are non-refundable. In certain cases, pro-rated credit good for youth or adult classes for one year may be offered less a $25 administration fee. Please be aware that when a child withdraws from a class that spot will go to someone else. 

Monthly payments are due by the 7th of the month. Payments can be made in cash or check at the studio or online via our online store. Late payments are subject to a $20 late fee. Returned checks will incur a fee of $35.

 

Attendance and Absences:

It is important for children to maintain consistent attendance in order for real learning and growth to occur. Classical ballet taken twice a week for ages 7 and up is universally considered the minimum for quality dance training. In the event of an absence, your child can take a makeup class within two months of the absence so long as s/he is actively enrolled in our program and current on the tuition plan selected at the time of registration. Makeup classes must occur in addition to regular classes and tuition must be paid in full during the month your child takes the makeup classes. Should there be any scheduling restrictions, your child may take a makeup class in a different dance style than the one missed as this can be a great way for your child to experience a new dance style. Please e-mail WildHeartPAS@gmail.com to notify us of an absence and the makeup class you intend to take.

Cancelled Class & Holidays

Our calendar coincides with the New York City public school calendar regarding most holidays. 

Class cancelations outside of holidays are rare. In the event of class cancellation due to events beyond our control such as teacher illness or inclement weather, or when there are holiday closures and recesses, your child may take a makeup class as per our standard makeup policy. 

Childcare & Pick-Up

Caregivers of children ages 6 and under are required to be on premises while class is in session. All children must be picked up after class by a parent/caregiver. Should a child have permission to go home unaccompanied by a parent/caregiver we require both written notification from the parent prior to class via e-mail to WildHeartPAS@gmail.com and verbal notification in person.

Performances

In-house performances showcasing your child's growth and progress occur throughout the year. There are no extra fees associated with our in-house performances. They are about sharing your child's growth with family and friends.  Dates to be announced.
