PAYMENT POLICIES 2020-2021
The non-refundable membership fee ($35 for one dancer in the family, $65 for two dancers in the family, or $90 for families with 3 or more dancers) will be posted to your account within 72 hours of registration. The fee is then due within one week. If you would like to use auto-pay, you need not take action. We’ll post using auto-pay 10 days after your registration.
The NINE monthly installments are based on a flat school-year rate. Classes begin on Monday September 14, 2020, and end at the end of May. Closings for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break and Memorial Day are accounted for, as are several snow days. Students may make-up snow days or sick days in another class section.
The first monthly installment is due September 1, 2020. For your convenience, we invite you to use your client portal. Alternatively, checks may be mailed to The Dee Buchanan Studio of Dance, PO Box 617, Middletown, MD 21769, or dropped in the drop box beside the front door. The remaining eight installment due dates are the 1st of each month, October-May.
A credit card must be provided at the time of registration. All accounts with tuition balances will automatically be charged on the 8th of each month. For families preferring to pay in another manner (cash or check), it is necessary that those payments be made by the 6th of each month.
We offer a multi-family member discount: an additional 10% off each class for all students in the family. For families with 4 or more dancers, the discount increases to 20%, and with 6 or more dancers, the discount increases to 30%.
We do not send statements or bills. Please use the dates outlined above and your client portal in order to keep your account current.
LOYALTY INCENTIVE: All families who register by 8/31/20, and who stay up to date throughout the first 8 months of the season (Sept-Apr), will not owe a May 2021 tuition installment!
