HomeAbout UsPoliciesTuition Information



All tuition is due in advance on a monthly basis.  Please send checks the first lesson of each month.  STATEMENTS WILL NOT BE SENT unless an account becomes overdue.  There will be a late charge of $15.00 per month for accounts not paid by the 15th of each month.  (Other payment dates can be arranged for special circumstances with the consent of the Business Manager.)  If this payment is not made by the 15th of the next month, the student will be considered inactive and will not be allowed to take class until full payment has been received.  If you have difficulty making a payment and cannot meet these conditions, contact the Business Manager, Heather Appenfeller or Cheryl Rogers, immediately.    We will make every effort to work out an acceptable payment plan with you,but we expect you to take the initiative.  The business manager is available in the studio office Monday-Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. (Office assistance is not available on Friday.)

To ensure proper credit, always write the full name of the student on your check. Please do not include apparel payments with lesson fees.  Keep canceled checks as your receipt.  If you must pay by cash, you will receive a receipt.  Please bring the exact amount (we do not keep cash on the premises) to the studio office during office hours (4:30-8:30 pm Monday - Thursday, and 9:00am-1:30pm Saturday).

Tuition is charged on a monthly basis regardless of the number of classes in a given month.  Our schedule is arranged so each student attends 32 class weeks (8 months) total.  No refunds will be given for missed classes, although classes can be made up.  A full month's tuition is to be paid in September that will also cover December (1/2 month tuition each).  No additional tuition will be charged in December.  Tuition payments can either be placed in the "tuition mail-slot" (by the school office) or mailed.  Do not give payments to the instructor.  Cash payments must receive a receipt from the office.  All returned checks will be assessed a $25.00 service charge.
