Registration assumes enrollment either for our 10-month program (September through June) and participation in our recital, or our 6-week summer program. A non-refundable fee of $25.00 ($10.00 in Summer) per student is required yearly at time of registration. This fee covers all administrative costs. There will be a $10.00 non-refundable re-start fee for any student that drops and wishes to re-register. All students must have a signed insurance release form on file.
Tuition is based on the dance season (37 weeks total), rather than the number of classes per month. Tuition must be received upon registration to confirm class time. Tuition is normally paid for the entire season, however, for your convenience, you can pay monthly. Tuition is charged automatically through our electronic funds transfer system. Tuition charges are posted to the customers account on the first day of each month. A $25.00 fee will be charged to your account for each transaction that is returned “insufficient funds.” There will be a $25 fee for all declined cards. It is the responsibility of the client to update card info due to expiration dates, change of accounts etc. There are no exceptions to the decline fee.
PDC's policy on refunds is that there are NO REFUNDS. If there is an extreme circumstance such as a broken bone, sever illness, etc., a doctor’s note given to us immediately will allow your account to be put on HOLD, until you can resume lessons.
Your child is automatically participating in the June recital. You must notify the front desk in writing before December 1st in order to not participate in the June recital. Costume fees will be automatically deducted by December 1st. No costume fee will be refunded after this date even if a student withdraws from the school. If registering after December 1st, costume fee is due at the time of registration. (Pre K - Kindergarten $60), (Grades 1-3 $65), (Grades 4-6 $70) (Ballet 3/4, Intensive Jazz/Tap/Contemporary $75), (Ballet 5, Pointe $80)
Annual Recital Fee of $35 will be automatically deducted March 1st for each student. No performance fee will be refunded after this date even if a student withdraws from the school.
Attendance and Lateness
Good attendance is necessary to insure maximum progress and enjoyment of the class. The school reserves the right to have students who come late to sit out of the class. A minimum attendance standard will be required. Students missing more than 4 classes after March will not be allowed to participate in the year-end dance recital or in festivals or competitions.
Care of Students
The school is not responsible for providing before or after care for students. Students are not to be left at the school for excessive periods of time before or after their classes.
There is a two-month minimum for all lessons. One-month notice from the first month is required to discontinue any classes. Withdrawals MUST be done in person and will not be accepted over the phone. Withdrawals must be done at the school office and not with the teacher. No withdrawals will be accepted after April 1. To withdraw from classes a parent or adult student must:
1. Inform school administration in person.
2. Complete and sign withdrawal form provided by the school office.
All automatic bank debiting or credit card charges will stop after the one-month notice period. No refunds will be given for costume fees after December 1st and no refunds will be given for trophy fees after March 1. Portland Dance Center reserves the right to terminate lessons to any students without notice. In such a case a refund for unused lessons will be given.
