Automatic Payment Policies

  • Tuition is processed by automatic payment on the 1st of every month by payment method of a credit card on your Purdance account.
  • Checks are not accepted.
  • Payments made after the 1st will be subjected to a $25 late fee on the 10th of the month.
  • Any automatic payments that are denied by your credit card company will be subjected to a $25 fee. To avoid any charges, notify Purdance in advance if you anticipate any changes in your payment method.
  • All students pay for classes on a monthly basis.
  • Tuition rates are based on a 4-week average of classes per month. Some months have 5 weeks and some month have 3 weeks. Our goal is to provide 38-40 weeks of instruction time September through June. 
  • There will be no partial month payment.
  • A student may be dismissed from class at any time due to non-payment.
  • Classes are non-transferable and non-refundable.
  • Missed classes are not prorated or redeemable for cash.

Make-Up Policy

  • Missed Classes are non-refundable.
  • Make-up classes are offered for ONLY the following legitimate circumstances: illness with a doctor’s note and family emergencies.
  • If parents notify Purdance of the child’s absence after the class has already begun and completed, we consider it as a missed class and there will be no makeup class arrangement. 
  • Only one make up class is allowed in 30 days and must be “made-up” within the 30 days. Make-up classes do not carry over the next 30 days.
  • If a child is sick and the teacher and parent agree that it is best for the child to observe the class, it is considered attendance and there will be no make-up class arrangement.   Observation is also an important part of the learning process.
  • Make-up classes require approvals from both the teacher and Purdance Program Manager.
  • Make-up classes are not allowed during the recital preparation period of March – June of the academic year.
  • How to Proceed with Make-up Classes.
    • Step 1: Email info@purdance.com or call the office to arrange the make-up class.
    • Step 2: Fill out Make-Up Form at the front desk
    • Step 3: Pick up a Make-Up Slip from the front desk and give to the teacher.

Add/Subtract Class Policy

  • In order to:
    • withdraw a student from class
    • enroll into another class
    • switch between two classes
