Tuition Payments and Registration:
We ask families to sign up for auto-pay to have tuition drafted automatically on the first of each month from your credit card, debit card or checking account. There is a $35 annual registration fee per student with a $90 per family cap (Non-refundable and non-transferable.) The registration fee, which reserves placement in classes the student has enrolled in, will be deducted when you first enroll. Tuition for August will be automatically deducted on or after August 7th. Every month thereafter tuition will automatically be deducted the 1st of the month for the rest of the current semester.
Tuition is calculated and based on the number of classes in any given semester (August – December and January – May) and is broken into five even payments per semester. We do not base tuition on the number of classes in any given month. So whether a month has less or more classes than others, the monthly payments stay the same.
We make the assumption that you are signing up for the entire year (August 2017 – May 2018). However at the end of the fall semester in December, you can notifiy us if there are any class changes that you want to make for the spring semester, including dropping some or all classes and adding new ones.
1st hour – $60 per month. 2nd hour – $40 per month. 3rd hour – $35 per month. $30 per month for each additional hour.
Siblings get to piggyback off the discounted tuition rate. For example: one student taking 2 hours of dance per week would be $100 per month. If a sibling also wanted to take one hour of dance per week, that would be an additional $35 per month for a total of $135 per month for the family.
There is a per student tuition cap of $345 per month and a family cap of $500 per month.
Every month tuition is the same amount. HisTown does not prorate,reduce, or increase tuition for shorter months or longer months. Tuition can be paid in full at the beginning of the semester or split into monthly payments.
There are no refunds for missed classes or canceled classes. If a class is canceled due to weather or you simply missed your class, you may take a make-up class at the same level or one level below.
We do email statements and you can check your balance online on your account with HisTown where you can keep track of payments and fees. A $10 fee will be added to monthly tuition if your tuition isn’t paid by the first week of each month.
We ask for a semester commitment from each dancer. If you need to withdrawal early you will be expected to pay the remainder of the month and costume fees if costumes have already been purchased for the dancer. Written notice is required, preferably at least two weeks prior to the end of any given month, or you may be charged for an additional month.
HisTown has a Spring performance and a Winter performance every year. Performances are held in mid-May and mid-December. Every class will participate in the performances unless otherwise stated on the schedule.
There is a performance fee is $40 per dancer with a $100 cap per family. These fees help pay for renting the auditorium for rehearsals and performances, the stage director fees and additional help needed backstage.
Costume fees for each performance vary. HisTown strives to keep each cost down and our costume fees are typically very inexpensive, normally between $35- $55 each. A non-refundable deposit of $25 per costume due September 25th. Final costume fees will be announced via email during the semester and balance of costume fees will be due October 24th. In the spring, a non-refundable deposit of $25 per costume is due April 1st. Final costume fees weill be announced shortly after that via email and the balance of costume fees will be due April 21st.
