Policies And Dress Code 1

2016 - 2017

Tuition Policies

Monthly tuition is due on the 1st of each month (August 15th for August 2016). Tuition is pro-rated for August & June. The tuition is based on an ANNUAL rate and divided into 10 equal payments (Aug & June are 1/2 months). The amount is based on the number of classes during the entire school year--NOT the number of classes per month. For this reason, no adjustment can be made for holidays, absences due to illness, or weather cancellations. Tuition is non-refundable.


FAMILY DISCOUNT:
 DDC offers a 10% tuition discount for the second dancer in the family, & 15% for each add'l dancer after the second! The dancer taking the most classes is full price, and so on from there.


Payment Options:
 

DDC offers three different options for Tuition payments: 1) the 10 Monthly Payments Plan, thru AUTOPAY ONLY 2) Semester Pay with 5% discount, or 3) Full Season Pay with 10% discount. You may pay your dancer’s tuition and fees with credit card Mastercard, Visa, Discover Card, or Bank account through OUR ONLINE REGISTRATION/PAYMENT SYSTEM at www.DentonDance.com, (click on Parent Portal in the upper right-hand corner of our banner).


10 Monthly Payments Plan:

Upon registering at DDC, you are expected to pay your dancer's tuition for the full 10 months of dancing. Those taking advantage of our 10 Monthly Payments Plan are asked to set up their payments online through our ONLINE REGISTRATION/PAYMENT SYSTEM at https://www.thestudiodirector.com/dentondance/portal.jsp to have the tuition automatically debited through a bank account or credit card each month. The 10-Payment Plan allows for withdrawal from the school with a 30-day written notice; tuition for one additional month will be due with notice; additional tuition for season will not be required. Tuition obligation will continue until written notice is received by the school. Tuition is non-refundable. All payments are due on the first of the month.


Full Season Pay
: The Full Season Payment Plan receives a 10% discount off yearly tuition rate, due at registration & non-refundable. Discount is valid when enrolling before September 30th of the current season. To compute your Full Season Payment Plan take the monthly tuition and multiply by 10 months, then subtract 10% (one month’s tuition!)

 


Semester Pay:
 The Semester Payment Plan participants receive a 5% discount off semester tuition rate, due at registration & non-refundable. Discount is valid when enrolling before Sept. 30th of the first semester, or Jan 30th of the second semester. To compute your Semester Pay Payment Plan take the monthly tuition and multiply by 4.5 months for the Fall or 5.5 months for the Spring, then subtract 5% .
