Dancers who do not have the proper dress code may not be allowed to participate in class.

REGISTRATION FEES

A $20 non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of sign-up to hold your spot in the class of your choice. A $10 registration fee is required for each additional sibling. Any student joining classes after October 1st will be responsible for additional recital fees.

SECURITY DEPOSIT

At the time of registration a non-refundable security deposit of 1/2 a month of tuition is due in order to enroll in classes. The security deposit will be applied to your last month’s tuition in June. If you decide to leave On the Barre, two weeks written notice is required. Your security deposit will be applied to those two weeks if you decide to leave. If you decide to stay for the entire dance year, you owe the other half of your security deposit as your June tuition.

TUITION

Monthly tuition amounts (with the exception of our Adult classes) include dance lessons, recital costumes, a recital t-shirt and tights, and 1 recital DVD per family. Tuition is due the first day of each month. A credit card or bank account must be put on file with registration. Your account will be automatically charged on the 1st of each month, unless pre-paid before the 1st.. We accept cash, checks, and cards for pre-payments. Monthly bills will not be emailed home, unless requested for pre-paying. Any expired or declined transactions will result in a 10% fee. May and June tuition (1.5 months) will be ran on May 1st, 2020. Tuition rates and payments are based on Ten Installments and are not affected by the specific number of classes that meet during any given month. For example: some months have 5 classes, some months have 3; monthly tuition is always the same. There are no refunds or reductions given based on holidays, vacations or absences. You are welcome to attend a make-up class in or below your child’s level for any missed classes if one is available. Any returned checks will be subject to a $20 bank fee. We do not take post-dated checks. Lessons will be suspended for any account with more than 2 months of unpaid tuition.

Pay year in full by August 1st, 2019 and save 10% off your total tuition, equal to one free month of dance, or pre-pay for any months at any time.There are NO refunds or exchanges for year in full payments. We offer a $10 monthly sibling discount for multiple children of the same family enrolled in classes. All sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges for any payments made to On the Barre.

ADULT CLASSES

Adult classes are not all-inclusive, and therefore do not require a security deposit. Cost is $15/drop-in or $105/8-class punch card. Cards are only punched when you are present. A $20 registration fee per year is required to enroll. We offer a $10 off per punch card discount for parents of OTB children.

SNOW DAYS

If the public schools are closed, please do not assume the studio is as well. A recording will be left on the studio’s answering machine at least one hour before the start of classes. There will be no refunds for missed classes due to weather related cancellations, and make-up classes are encouraged in your child’s same age level/different subject or different age level/same subject class. If more than 2 of the same classes are missed due to weather, a make-up class will be scheduled, but only if time and teacher schedules permit.

ABSENCES

Good attendance is imperative to the growth of our dancers. Attendance is especially important in the winter months when we begin choreography for our recital. The absence of one dancer affects the entire group. If any dancer misses an exceptional amount of classes we reserve the right to remove them from the class. Please make every effort to attend each class. Doctor’s notes are helpful for teachers to understand the severity of a dancer’s injury or illness and are encouraged when students are absent for these reasons. Attending and participating in Dress Rehearsal is mandatory in order to perform in the Recital
