Registration fee of $55.00 per student along with the first and last month’s tuition are due at registration. Tuition fees are per student based on an annual fee. Families are responsible for tuition for the entire year.
There are 3 tuition payment options. Each family will be asked to select from one of the following:
- Option 1: One annual payment in full due August 31st.
- Option 2: Two semester payments due August 31st and January 20th.
- Option 3: 10 equal payments due on the 20th of each month. These payments can be automatically run on credit cards, paid by check, cash or credit card during office hours (please check website for office hours as our teachers will not be taking payments), or paid on-line at charlotteballet.com. Payments have a grace period of 5 days to process.If payment is not received by that date, a $25.00 late fee will be applied to the account. Please call the office if a situation arises.
Yearly and semester payments reflect a discount on the annual tuition.
Families choosing to pay with under Option 3 will need to submit the financial agreement form including a valid credit card number. Balances not paid in full by the 30th of each month will be charged to the credit cards on file. Payments that are not able to process or are rejected may result in additional processing fees of $25.00 and temporary removal of dancers from rosters until payment arrangements can be made. In addition, returned checks will be assessed a fee of $35.00 Please note that the studio wants to provide all dancers with continuous and uninterrupted instruction. Should a situation arise involving payment commitments, we encourage families to communicate this immediately so temporary arrangements can be made to help accommodate special circumstances. Students and families with a balance over 60 days will not be allowed in class. A business office representative will be at the door on the day payments are due to discuss payment arrangements. Keeping up with account balances allows our dancers to receive uninterrupted instruction. Statements are generated and emailed on the 20th of each month. Providing accurate email addresses is imperative for not only the financial communication but also information regarding class and studio communication. Payments can be made on-line anytime at www.charlotteballet.com. In addition, payments can be processed at the studio through credit card, check or cash.
