Tuition Policies

Tuition is based on the number of classes per year and divided into monthly payments.  Monthly payments remain the same regardless of the number of weeks per month, school closures, or absences.

Payment is due in advance on the 1st of each month.  Payments received after the 7th of the month will incur a $20.00 late fee.  We do not pro-rate tuition. There is no credit for missed lessons.  Make-up classes are available.  Contact the studio to schedule.

Payments may be paid by cash, money order or check at the studio.  Checks or money orders should be made payable to Mary Ellen Studio of Dance.  We do not accept post dated checks.  Any checks returned due to non-sufficient funds (NSF) will be charged a $25.00 fee. 

Payment can be made on-line with debit or credit card.  Debit or credit card will not be accepted at the studio.

Registration Fee

There is a once-a-year $25.00 registration fee charged per student or $30.00 per family.  The registration fee is normally billed in September of each year.  New families are charged upon first registration.
