2019-2020 Studio Policies

First Day of Dance Class: Monday, August 12, 2019
Please read through all the policies to see all other closing and calendar info! We generally follow RBB Schools' yearly calendar and closings for most breaks.

2019-2020 registration and tuition payment information:
Indiana Dance Company tuition is based on an entire season of dance. Our season runs from August 12, 2019 - May 23, 2020. 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 9.5 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 2019 - May 2020 and will be automatically billed to the card on file on the 1st of each month.  
All monthly tuition payments, recital costume payments, and year-end show fees will be auto-billed to the card on file. Tuition is due on the first of every month and will be auto billed on the first of each month. You will be emailed a receipt after your tuition is auto billed. Your recital fee will be auto billed on November 11, 2019.
To add your card information to your account you must login to the parent portal and select the Auto-Pay option.  
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.
You will not receive a billing statement or invoice, however you will receive a receipt of payment each month after the auto bill.
Late Fee: If your card on file is declined or there is not a card on file, an alternate payment must be made within 48 hours. A $10 Late Fee will be charged for any payments not made in full by the 10th of the month. This includes declined charges for cards on files for any reason.  
Returned Check Fee: $25.   

Customer Portal: Each family will have a 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 registration page of our website. Please contact [email protected] with any questions about your portal and/or account info.  
Registration Fees: A non-refundable registration fee of $20 for the first dancer and $10 each additional family member is due upon registration. In addition, your first tuition installment is due at this time. This is also non-refundable.

Withdrawal Policy: We require a written notice via email if you wish to withdraw from Indiana Dance Company. Please email [email protected] to withdraw from our 2019-2020 session. After we receive your withdrawal, we will terminate your monthly installment schedule moving forward, or, if a full year was paid, we will refund the remaining installments minus 30%.
Make-up Classes: If your dancer misses class due to illness or other personal reasons, they will be able to make up the missed class in a similar class. There will be no discount or refund given for missed classes. There are no make-ups for classes missed when the studio is officially closed for holidays, etc. All classes missed due to inclement weather can be made up at your convenience using our existing class schedule.  

2020 Summer Registration: Full payment will be due upon registering for our 2020 Summer dates. The appropriate fees will be posted to your account and will be charged to the card on file.  
YEAR-END RECITAL: We produce a great show at the end of the year with all IDC dancers. This is an exciting end to our dance season! Dress rehearsal is on Thursday May 14th (times TBD) and recital is May 15th. This is an exciting and rewarding part of the season that everyone looks forward to! We encourage all dancers to participate!

YEAR-END RECITAL COSTUMES: Costume costs are generally $45.00-$75.00 per costume (you will receive the exact amount in October 2019). Costume fees will be auto billed on November 11, 2019. After this fee is processed, it is non-refundable. Any costume alterations needed will be the responsibility of the parent.  If your dancer will not be participating, you are required to notify us by email at [email protected] no later than November 5, 2019. Please do not rely on your dancer to inform us that she or he will not be dancing in the Year-End Recital!  

YEAR-END RECITAL FEE: A $15 (per dancer) Year-End Recital Fee is due with costume payment. This fee helps cover the costs associated with putting on the show, and includes a special year-end gift for the dancer. This fee will be auto-billed on November 11, 2019, along with the costume fees.

SHOW TICKETS: Tickets to our Year-End Recitals are free.

DRESS CODE: Proper shoes and attire must be worn to participate in class. Hair should be pulled back off face for all classes. Don’t forget to write your name in all shoes, bags, etc. You can find descriptions of the proper attire for each class in the Documents section of our website. We will place a dancewear order 4 times a year and you will have the opportunity to order any item from our supply list that includes all necessities you will need for dance class. Please see our supply list for more additional information on purchasing dancewear and footwear through IDC.
