TUITION POLICIES

TUITION IS DUE and will be charged to your card on file on the 25th of the month prior. For example, September’s tuition will be processed on August 25th with your last tuition payment being on May 25th for June tuition. Tuition and fees are non-refundable for any reason unless there is a class cancellation and no make up classes are available. We do not send monthly statements, you may log into your account at any time by clicking here.

If you wish to DROP A CLASS, you must notify the office 30 days prior, in writing. Your account will still be billed unless the office is notified. Many times we have students on waiting lists and we need to be able to offer the opening to those waiting.

Tuition is not prorated for MISSED CLASSES. Students can schedule a make up class through the office. There is only ONE make up classes allowed per six weeks and must be due to illness or school function. One of the advantages of choosing Encore is the wide range of classes we offer. If your child is signed up for tumbling they can make up in ballet, hip hop or lots of other classes at the studio. As long as the age and level are appropriate, you are always encouraged to try new things here at Encore.
