Our Policies and Procedures

Tuition Payment Policy

Tuition is charged by the total amount of minutes each dancer is registered for class.  Tuition charges are due on the first of month.  A late fee of 10% will be added to all outstanding accounts starting the 5th of the month.  

We accept ACH withdrawl, check, Venmo or cash payments with no additional fees.  We also accept credit card paments in person at our Davenport Studio location for a $7 adminstration fee.

For Fall classes (both recreational and competitive)  if ALL NINE MONTHS are paid in full prior to September 9th, we will apply a %5 credit to the total bill. (no refunds given if student unenrolls in classes).  Please email us if you would like to participate in this program. Walk up requests will not be accepted. 

If payment is not received by the third week of class, we reserve the right to restrict your dancer from attending class until your account is paid in full.

Withdrawal Policy

We require a 30 day emailed cancelation notice to drop any class.  You will be required to pay any tuition within 30 days of your cancelation and are welcome to continue to take classes through the end of those 30 days.

Attendance / Tardiness Policy

Competition Students, please see your handbook for attendance policy information

Recreational attendance:  We will follow up with students that have not attended class on a regular basis.  Once choregraphy starts, please attend on a weekly basis so that your dancer can learn their recital routine.  If your dancer has missed too many classes and is falling behind in recital choregraphy, we may have to schedule private lessons or remove your dancer from the recital.  

Photo / Video Release

At times, we may take photos or videos to use on our social media sites.  If you wish to not have your child photographed, please email us at kim@abovethebarredanceacademy.com
