GENERAL RULES: Please discuss these rules with your dancers! Thank you!
Please only use the drive thru lanes for pick up/drop off only. Please do not park in the lanes as it creates a traffic jam behind you. If necessary, please loop around until your child is ready at the door. Also, please help us be good neighbors by avoiding using the parking lot of the adjacent businesses. Street parking on Discovery Drive is available for overflow parking. We appreciate your cooperation!
STUDENT ACCOUNT PORTAL:
Each family will have a student account portal to process payments, register for classes, etc. It is your responsibility to keep all info (contact info, payment info, etc.) up to date. You can sign up or log in on the home page of our website. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about your portal and/or account info.
Communication with our families is so important to us! We send monthly statements and announcements by email and these are posted on our website as well. Please add “email@example.com” as a contact in your email and let us know if you are not receiving updates. We also post updates to our website frequently, and we’d love to have you “like” us on Facebook to hear the latest chat on what’s going on at the studio.
2020-2021 registration and tuition payment information:
Montana Dance Works tuition is based on an entire season of dance. Our season runs from September 14, 2020 - May 27, 2021. All dancers are required to pay for the entire season. Tuition is not based on the number of classes in a month or attendance. There is NO refund for missed classes.
You may pay the entire season in full or divide it up into 9 monthly installments. The first installment is due with your registration fee, and this installment is non-refundable. The other installments are due the 1st of each month, September 2020 - May 2021.
Tuition is due on or before the 1st of every month regardless of what day of the week, holidays, etc. You may pay online through your student account using a credit card or checking account, at the front desk during class times, or using our locked mailbox to the left of the front doors.
Recital costume payments are due on or before November 1, 2020.
If you pay the entire season in full on or before September 1, 2020, you will receive a 5% discount. Please note: If you pay your dancer’s tuition for the full year and withdraw from classes for any reason (loss of interest, school obligations, injury, illness, etc.) a 30% penalty will be applied to your refund for the remainder of the year. We suggest you only pay the year in full if you are 100% confident your dancer will participate fully in the entire season.
A $10 late fee is applied to your account if payment is not received ON OR BEFORE the 1st. If you are on Auto Pay and your card on file is declined, an alternate payment must be made within 48 hours to avoid a $10 late fee.
Returned Check Fee: $25.
Registration Fees: A non-refundable registration fee of $20 for each dancer is due upon registration. In addition, your first tuition installment is due at this time. This is also non-refundable. Payment in full is required for the registration fee. You will receive a payment confirmation email once your payment has been processed. Students with a past due account exceeding 60 days will be dropped from the class(es) and will not be allowed to participate until their account is paid and up to date.
We accept cash, check, MC, VISA, DISCOVER, and AMEX.
If your student must withdraw from a class, please do so in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are responsible for your student’s monthly tuition until withdrawal notice has been received by the administrative office. Please note that the tuition balance is due and payable upon withdrawal.
We produce three fabulous productions at the end of the year with all MDW dancers. The 2021 recital week (including dress rehearsals) will be May 24-28. This is an exciting and rewarding part of the season that everyone looks forward to! Stay tuned for 2021 Recital details to be released throughout the year. PLEASE NOTE: Dress rehearsals are mandatory in order to participate in the recitals. This is for the safety of your child and the other children on the stage. Please plan accordingly!
Costume fees are $60 for our students 3rd grade and younger and $70 for students 4th grade and older per costume. Costume fees will be due on November 1, 2020. After this fee is processed on November 1, it is non-refundable. Any costume alterations needed will be the responsibility of the parent. We welcome payments in full before the due date, or installments. We cannot guarantee that costumes will arrive in time for the recital if payment is not received by the due date. Costumes will not be handed out to students with a balance due. Costume fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. If your dancer will not be participating, you are required to notify us by email to email@example.com no later than November 1, 2020. Please do not rely on your dancer to inform us that she or he will not be dancing in the recital!
Tickets to our recitals will need to be purchased. Dancers performing in the show do not need a ticket. More information on Recital Tickets, including when they will be available to purchase, will be included in the 2021 Recital Packet released in April.
Please make sure your dancer is set up for a great class experience by providing them with the appropriate attire and shoes. You can find a dress code description and shoe requirements on our website under dress code. Jeans and jewelry are prohibited. Shoes can be ordered and fitted at the front desk. MDW also carries dance attire, leotards, shorts, skirts and tights.
We generally follow the Butte School District Academic Calendar for closing. Dates subject to change based on the school calendar release. Please see full calendar for details.
