Tuition must be paid monthly. 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 You will have two date options for your tuition to be withdrawn: the 5th of each month or the 20th of each month. Tuition will be withdrawn one month in advance. (For example: September’s tuition will be taken out on August 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 the payment plan 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.
