Tuition is to be paid by the 1st day of each month online at CinderellaDance.com, "Online Payments" link. A $20 late charge will be added on the 5th and an invoice may be emailed from our PayPal account. Tuition is on a monthly basis regardless of the number of weeks in each month. No refunds, discounts or credits for absences or holidays. Each student will pay a $21.00 non-refundable registration fee.
Attendance: Good attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class, and the studio cannot jeopardize its responsibilities to the rest of the class for one student. Please make EVERY effort to have your child attend EVERY class. No refund, deduction, or credit for missed classes. A child that continually misses classes or is absent 3 classes in a row may be dropped from the class or won't be able to perform in the recital.
Dropping: Each student will be required to give a 30-day written notice to Cinderella to terminate billing. Please note: You are responsible for payment of tuition for your childís classes whether or not your child attends class after the time you turn in your 30-Day written notice to Cinderella.
Please pick your child up promptly at the end of their class.

Class Observation: Parents may watch their childís class on the color monitors in the office/waiting room which is located on the McArdle side of the building. Please limit observers to 2 adults per dance child. When bringing your child to class, please bring them to the white studio entrance door, on the Airline side of the building, and let them proceed into the class area alone with their instructor; do not enter the class area with them anytime during the class. You will pick them up at the studio entrance door at the end of class.
Please be sure your child goes to the restroom at home or the studio before bringing them to class, especially the younger ones. This can quickly turn into a chain reaction and soon all members have to go to the restroom. We ask that 1 parent, for 3-5 year olds, stay in the waiting room in case their child has to go to the restroom during class.
NO FOOD, GUM, TOYS or DANGLE JEWELRY allowed in class!! Students are not allowed to bring friends to class with them.
ARRIVE no more than 10 min prior to class. Doors open 5 minutes before class begins.
BE SURE TO TAKE DANCERS TO THE BATHROOM prior to dance class as potty breaks interrupt our dance time.
ANY OUTBURSTS, RUDE BEHAVIOR OR COMMENTS (by students or their family members) directed at anyone at the studio will NOT be tolerated and is grounds for immediate dismissal from enrollment at Cinderella.
Performance: Students are presented in 1 or 2 performances each year in June. Participation in the performance is optional.
Costume fee is paid, in full, online at CinderellaDance.com, "Online Payments" page, due by March 15th. Dance class costume is $86.00 per dance class. This will include everything needed to perform 2 routines in the performance(s) except dance shoes. $76.00 for acrobatics class, 1 routine. Costume fees must be paid on time to order your child's costume. There will be no exceptions. Costumes will be ordered only for students who have paid for their costumes by the due date. Costume fees are non-refundable once the costumes have been ordered. Please understand that, if you do not pay for your child's costume by the due date, they will not have one for the performance. If a student who has paid for their costume, in full, quits classes before the performance and gives their 30-day notice, they will receive their costume. If a student who has paid for their costume in full quits classes before the performance and does not give their 30-day notice, the costume will be held until the charge for that 30 days has been paid. If a new student joins the class, the studio can (at the director's discretion) sell that costume to the new student and give a refund to the original student provided that student does not have an outstanding balance. Costumes left at the studio, after 30 days past the performance date, will become the property of the studio. Costumes will be passed out shortly before performance to all students whose accounts are paid-up-to-date. In some cases, costumes may be a little large. It is the parent's responsibility to have them altered.
PRIVATE LESSONS are 30 minute classes where students receive 1 on 1 training with their instructor. They can choose from the following curricula: modeling, pageant coaching, tap, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, cheerleading or acrobatics. Students in private lessons will perform a solo in the performance(s) in June. Private lessons are only available to students who are registered in regular classes at Cinderella.
