There is a one-time nonrefundable $35 registration fee for the insurance of your dancer.
Registration is valid from September through August of that dance season.
Tuition payments are based on a yearly fee. You can either:
pay in full for the dance year
pay for half the year at a time
pay monthly throughout the 10-month dance season
The tuition rate is based on the amount of time that a student is dancing per week, not the number of classes they are attending. Once registered, parents will pay for first and last month's tuition. Afterwards, if you decided to pay monthly, I will be sending out reminder emails to parents and/or guardians before the next tuition payment is due. Monthly class tuition is to be paid on the dancers last class of the current month for the upcoming month. There will be a $15.00 late fee for all payments made after the 15th of the month. Cash, check or Venmo payments are accepted. All checks should be made out to Inspire Dance Centre. We do not accept credit cards at Inspire Dance Centre.
All studio accounts must be paid in full before any family members can purchase tickets to our end of the year recital.
Inspire Dance Centre follows the Southold School District yearly calendar for vacations, some holidays, and some cancellations due to bad weather. Please check our Facebook page, the studio answering machine, or your email for class cancellations. If your child misses a class, they may make up that class by attending a different scheduled class within their age group other than the one your child is registered for. There are no refunds for missed classes.
Inspire begins its classes in September and are based on a 34-week year. 36- weeks are scheduled, which allows 2 extra weeks of classes. These extra classes are scheduled in case of any studio cancellations due to bad weather or other emergencies.
Winter Showcase 2021
Each year, Inspire holds two shows. Our Winter Show is held in December and dancers are in at least 1 dance. All dancers must be registered by October 15th to be eligible to perform in our Winter Showcase. Each dancer will need an all-black leotard, tan tights, and proper shoes. Hip-Hop dancers will need an all-black t-shirt and black leggings (boys: black sweatpants). Parents are responsible to purchase and get these items.
Spring Recital 2022
The dance year concludes with a dance recital either in the month of May or June. There will be a scheduled picture day and dress rehearsal before our dance recital. All students participating in the yearly recital must attend the picture day even if you are not planning on purchasing photos.
If you are unsure of your child participating in the annual recital you do not have to pay the annual recital fee of $63.95. A decision must be made by December 15th and the full costume fee will be due at that time. Costumes will not be handed out unless they have been paid in full. All costume fees are broken up into the first three months of the dance season (September-November). By December 15th, all costume balances must be paid in full or an additional $20 late fee will be applied per costume.
The Inspire Dance Centre instructors will not be held responsible in any way for personal injury to students or persons accompanying students to, from or during classes. Inspire Dance Centre is also not responsible for any lost articles such as personal items, dance shoes or handed out recital costumes. All articles should have your child's name in them.
Inspire Dance Centre is a positive and safe environment. If at any time I feel someone is disrupting the studios wellbeing, I will ask them to leave without a refund. As owner, it is my job to maintain the harmony of my studio.
