YOUTH PROGRAM TUITION & POLICIES
We strive to keep tuition affordable for all families while limiting class size 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)
Toddler Dance & Play is a drop-in class. There is no registration fee however, a registration form must be filled out for each child by a parent/legal guardian prior to the child's first class.
Single class: $25
Youth Program Ages 3+
Registration is open year-round, assuming spots are available. There is a $25 new-student registration fee for new students (except Toddler Dance & Play). A registration form must be filled out for each child by a parent/legal guardian prior to the child's first class.
Due to the pandemic, semester tuition is suspended. Tuition is on a monthly basis for all youth classes except Toddler Dance & Play.
Monthly tuition is based on the number of classes per week your child is enrolled in and the length of those class. The more classes s/he takes, the lower the per-class rate. For monthly tuition rates, please inquire at WildHeartPAS@gmail.com. Monthly tuition is due by your child's first class of the month and can be made in cash or check at the studio or via Zelle, or at our online store. Payments made after the 7th of the month incur a late fee of $20.
Refund Policy & Late Payments
Please note registration and tuition payments are non-refundable. In certain cases, pro-rated credit 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:
For real learning and growth to occur, it's important for children to attend class regularly and avoid being absent except in cases of illness. 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 they are actively enrolled in our program and current on the tuition rate 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 class(es). Should there be any scheduling restrictions, your child may take a makeup class in a different dance style than the one missed, which is a great way for your child to experience a new dance style or, credit for the missed class will be issued, which can be used at any time. Please note credit is in the form of class and cannot be deducted from future tuition payments. 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 cancellations are rare. In the event of class cancellation due to events beyond our control such as teacher illness or inclement weather, your child may take a makeup class as per our class 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.
In-house performances showcasing your child's growth and progress occur throughout the year. There are no extra fees associated with in-house performances. They are about sharing your child's growth with family and friends. Dates to be announced.
