Spotlight's Company Tuition Policy
Tuition can be paid two ways: Monthly or Annually.
Monthly tuition is a package broken into equal installments due the 1st of each month. For our Company Program, there are 12 installments due July through June that include Summer, Fall, productions and costumes.
Annual tuition must be paid in full by August 1st in order to receive a 10% discount and is therefore non-refundable and non-transferable. Tuition paid in full by December 1st will receive a 5% discount and is also non-refundable and non-transferable. No reimbursements will be made.
Account statements are not distributed. Accounts with an outstanding balance on the 5th of the month will incur a $10.00 late fee. A $25.00 fee will be charged for all returned checks. Payment is due regardless of your student’s attendance.
We accept cash, check, debit, Visa, American Express, Discover and MasterCard. All accounts not paid in full must provide a credit/debit card to guarantee the account. If the account becomes delinquent, the balance due will be charged to this card. Your account may be automatically drafted each month for no extra charge. Please remember to update the front desk if your card information changes throughout the year.
Classes must meet a minimum enrollment of 6 students or the class will be dropped and students will be thoughtfully placed in an alternate class.
For company dancers, your annual company commitment begins July 1st. Spotlight Studio must recieve written confirmation by July 1st, and after such time, you are confirming your place in the group for the entire dance year. You will be responsible for all tuition, installments 1 - 12, as well as agree to participate in the annual spring recital.
A costume will be given to each dancer for each class of non technique instruction, provided they participate in the recital. Only accounts fully paid by recital will receive costumes and be able to perform. Due to the number of students and the length of the show, Spotlight Studio breaks its recital into multiple casts and may combine classes. We attempt to accommodate our families, however, there is no guarantee that multiple classes or siblings will be able to perform in the same recital cast. We appreciate your understanding. By agreeing to these terms, you give Spotlight Studio (and its partners) approval to use footage taken in class, at recital or during other events for use in promotional material.

By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by participation.
