Students are placed according to age, prior dance experience, and where development will most likely be achieved. Classes are held Monday through Saturday, with a variety of options to choose from throughout the week. All dance classes are based on a syllabus to maintain a high standard of instruction within all levels.
Registration typically occurs during the summer, however we accept ongoing registration throughout the dance season. A non-refundable $20 registration fee, per family, is required at the time of registration.
Tuition is calculated based on an annual fee of $558 for one class, with discounts applied for multiple classes.
Tuition is due on a monthly basis (1st class of every month, September-May).
Late tuition payments (not received within 7 days of the start of the month) will receive an email with a reminder that payment is due. If payment is not received by the 15th of the month, the credit card on file will automatically be charged the balance due.
Accounts with a declined credit card payment, or no payment received, and not settled before the end of the month will have a late fee of $10.00 added to their account.
A $35.00 fee will be applied to any bounced checks.
All payments are non-refundable, no exceptions.
Tuition paid in full by September 30th will receive a 5% discount off of tuition only.
CREDIT CARD PROCESSING FEE
There is a 2.5% credit card processing fee for all credit card payments.
*All families registered with Dance 360 must have a valid credit card on file.
We accept cash, checks, Visa, Master Card, and Discover.
Each child is required to purchase a dance recital costume. Costume fees are a one-time payment. A costume will be ordered for your child only if this payment is received. We cannot guarantee the availability of a costume if it is not ordered along with those for the rest of the class.
Costume Fee: $80 per costume for all NON-COMPANY classes.
The costume fees are non-refundable, no exceptions.
A strict dress code will be enforced in order for our dance instructors to correct alignment and body placement, as well as to promote self discipline required for dance. Hair must be securely pulled back off the face for all classes. Hair must be securely pulled back and in a bun for all ballet classes. Students who do not abide by the dress code will be asked to sit out of class. For more information on the specific dress code for each class, visit our website under the “Dress Code” tab.
In the event of an unscheduled closing, a make-up class may be scheduled, but is not guaranteed. If you are absent from class, you are still responsible for your tuition payment. There are absolutely no refunds for missed classes, no exceptions. Tuition refunds or credits will not be given for closings for any reason, including, but not limited to, weather, holidays, a global pandemic, or absences of a student due to illness or vacation.
WITHDRAWING FROM CLASS
If you choose to withdraw from classes for any reason, we will discontinue monthly tuition charges with one month’s written notice of withdrawal (email is acceptable). Without written notice your credit card will continue to be charged monthly tuition. Again, 30 days written notice is required for all withdrawals. This policy will be strictly enforced and no exceptions will be made.
Customers choosing to receive the paid in full discount understand that there are no refunds for any reason, no exceptions after 4 classes. If withdrawing prior to the 4 class window, a prorated refund will be given only if written notice of withdrawal has been received.
SICK DAYS & ILLNESS
If your child is sick and cannot attend class, please ask his/her teacher at the next scheduled class for a make-up class. Make-up classes may not always be available. Therefore, try not to miss a class. Again, there are NO refunds for missed classes, no exceptions.
We cannot allow any child who has contracted an infectious illness, virus, or skin disease to attend class. This may threaten the health of the other children and staff.
SNOW DAYS & INCLEMENT WEATHER
For the most part we are on the same schedule as the Upper Moreland and Abington School Districts. In the case of inclement weather: if Upper Moreland schools are closed, Dance 360 will be closed. Please check the Dance 360 social media pages, your email, and/or the UM website (www.umtsd.org) for closing information..
ANNUAL DANCE RECITAL
Here at Dance 360 we do not have dance recitals where you sit for 3 to 5 hours. Most shows are approximately one and a half to two hours long. We work very hard to make sure our Dress Rehearsals and Recitals are very organized and run on or close to schedule. This is a family event that will be enjoyed by all members of the family, including fathers and brothers who dread the notion of the typical dance recitals.
Our Dance Recitals revolve around a theme that incorporates dancers and elaborate painted backdrops. In the past we have done such themes as “On Broadway”, “A Season to Dance”, “Dancin’ Coast to Coast”, “Dancing Through the Decades”, “Believe in the Magic”, and many more.
There is a charge for each recital ticket and tickets go on sale several weeks before the Annual Recital. Ticket sales go to offset the cost of the facility rental, lighting, sound system, technicians, etc. Tickets are sold online in a ticketing box office and will be sold for a discounted price in advance. Tickets will also be sold at the door, however the discounted rate will not apply at that time.
