An annual registration fee of $20.00/family must be paid at the beginning of every dance year.
Required Payment Options
Tuition can be paid in two ways: monthly or in 3 month installments. You must be set up in our auto withdrawal system. In order to set this up you will need to submit a credit card, check/debit card, or checking account number through our secure customer portal. You will have two date options for your tuition to be withdrawn: the 5th of each month or the 20th of each month. Tuition will be withdrawn one month prior. (For example: September’s tuition will be taken out on August 5th or 20th). The other option is to pay tuition in three installments. Tuition for Sept., Oct., and Nov. will need to be paid on Aug. 5th or 20th, tuition for Dec., Jan., and Feb. will need to be paid on Nov. 5th or 20th, and tuition for March, April, and May would need to be paid on Feb. 5th or 20th.
If your account payment is denied at any point during the year you will have until the 30th of the month to resolve the payment issue before a late fee is issued. If no payment is received by the 30th, a late fee of $10.00 will be assessed to your account. If you are assessed a late fee and your account is not brought current or satisfactory payment arrangements are not made with the office manager before the 10th of the month, your family will be dropped from classes at Elite Dance Productions for the remainder of the season. Tuition is non-refundable. Accounts can not be frozen and tuition will not be prorated for holidays, for child absences, planned or unplanned family vacations/events. If your child misses a class they have the option to make it up by attending another similar class. A $10 NSF fee will be charged each time a check is returned.
All families must be on one of the two payment plans above. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Also note we will only allow one primary billing account. If a payment option is not selected at the time of enrollment we will automatically set your account to process your tuition payment on the 5th of each month. All fees must be paid up to date in order to participate in scheduled events.
All account balances must be paid prior to the end of the year recital or your dancer will not be allowed to participate in the performance. The entire balance on your account will be processed automatically on April 5th or 20th according to your selected payment option.

EDP holds a recital at the end of every dance year. This is a chance for dancers to show off what they have learned over the past year. They will learn a routine during the year that they will perform on stage. The recital date will be announced at a later date (typically held in May/June). Before this date you will receive a recital handbook that will include ticket information. All audience members are required to purchase tickets with the exception of the dancer performing and any child under 3 years of age who will sit on a lap throughout the recital. Costumes are mandatory for all recital participants. Costumes will be picked out by the instructor in the fall. Costumes can range from $65-$80 and will need to be paid for in full no later than Thursday, November 10th. Please put this date on your calendar. If your child’s costume is not paid for, it will not be ordered. Once a costume is ordered there will be no returns or refunds. All costume sales are final.
While it is our hope that every dancer that walks through our door is able to stay with us throughout their dancing career, we understand that sometimes families must leave. EDP requires a 30-day written withdrawal notice. Any charges posted before the office receives notice of withdrawal will be processed. All tuition, costume, merchandise, and event fees are non-refundable. If notice is not given you will continue to be charged tuition and be responsible for payment until notice is received; you must inform our office to have them stopped.
Attendance is taken at the beginning of each class. Good attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class, and an instructor can not jeopardize its responsibilities to the rest of class for one student. Please make every effort to have your child at every class. If your child will be gone from class please notify the office by phone or email so we can note the absence and reason of absence. If your dancer is gone from class and office is notified they will be allowed to make up class at another class time of same or similar discipline. If no notification is made to the office your dancer is not eligible for a class make up. Private lessons are available to learn routine combinations missed due to class absences at the cost of $20.00/30 min. or $35.00/hr. in the event they have to learn choreography material that can not be taught in other classes. Attendance is important to continue the development of the classroom discipline.
Early Dismissal/Termination of Classes or Services
Instructors reserve the right to dismiss any dancer from class or routine whose attitude or commitment is unsatisfactory. If a class doesn’t meet the required minimum of 5 students per class dancers will be given an option to move to another class of the same or similar discipline. We expect dancers and parents to support and respect the other dancers, parents, and staff. We expect sportsman-like conduct from ALL of our dancers and parents. We will not tolerate rude comments, negativity, or poor attitudes. Please note that poor conduct by either a dancer or parent will result in termination of services.
EDP may take photos of our dancers to use on our website, social media, or other publications. If you object to having photos of your children used in this way please inform the office.
