CLASS ATTIRE & STUDIO POLICIES
Fees: Tuition must be paid by automatic credit/debit card payment. Tuition will be debited from your account on the 1st or 15th of each month for the months specified in your contract. If an account carries an outstanding balance for 30 days, a $10 late fee will be added to the account. Scarlett’s Center Stage does not extend payments or pro-rate tuition rates. Unless notified otherwise, all recital fees will automatically be deducted from the credit card on file on the dates specified. There will be no refunds. Prices are subject to change without notice. ALL FEES PAID ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Class Attire: All students are expected to arrive to class with the appropriate attire, shoes and hair pulled back. Failure to wear required dancewear may result in the student being asked to sit out of class. Dance attire must be clean and tights should not have holes/runs. School uniforms and street clothes are unacceptable. Ballet skirts and tutus are permitted for ages 2-7. It is also recommended that your child bring a dance bag for their dance shoes, as they will change them in the dance room during class time. Please write your child’s name on all of their dance shoes. DANCE SHOES MUST BE PURCHASED AT DANCE PLUS, located at 8433 SW 132 Street. (They offer our students a 10% discount.)
