Tuition:

There are three options for paying your tuition; annually, semi-annually or monthly. If you choose to pay monthly please be aware that we will break down the tuition into 10 months worth of payments. For those who choose the monthly option tuition is due on the 15th of August, September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, and May.

Tuition not received by the 21st of any month will automatically incur a $20 late fee. Please keep in mind that not all months have 4 weeks of dance in them; some have three and some have five. No matter the amount of the weeks, the tuition is based on the whole year and just broken up to make it easier for you.

 

Past Due Charges:

We allow a 7 day grace period to get tuition in. It is due on the 15th of every month. If it not paid by the 22nd, you will incur a $20 late fee. NO EXCEPTIONS. Unpaid charges that are 30 days late will incur a charge of 10% their past due amount. If it is still not paid within 10 days of that, your child can not dance until it is paid. You will keep getting charged 10% of that unpaid amount every 30 days. After 90 days if no arrangements have been made it will be sent to collections.

 

Costume Fee:

Costume Fees are due no later than January 1st.  Dance Basics costumes = $65, Combo Classes, Adaptive= $70, Level 1 and higher = $80. NIDC is not responsible for costume alterations. Costumes fees are non-refundable. Costume balances not paid by January 10, will incur a $20 late fee per costume. Anything after that could incur and additional cost to ensure that it is delivered on time.

 

Absence:

Attendance before performances is mandatory, dress rehearsals are mandatory.  Please take a moment to call or email NIDC if your child will not be attending class, this allows our teachers to know how to plan for the class.
