  • 1 hour weekly class- $55/month

 

10% Sibling/Multi-Class Discount

  • For students and families taking multiple classes per week, a 10% discount will be applied to the total tuition. This discount is per family therefore is a multi-class discount as well as a sibling discount.

 

Payment Schedule

  • Tuition is due on the 1st day of each month.

  • Tuition not received by the 5th of the month will be automatically processed.

  • If payment is not received by the 10th of the month, due to expired or declined cards, students will be unenrolled from the class until the balance is paid in full.

 

Payment Methods

  • Tuition is posted for the following month on the 15th and is due on the 1st.

  • We offer two methods of payment:

    Automatic payments will be processed automatically on the 1st of each month.

    Manual payments can be paid in cash, check or online by logging into your parent portal.  Tuition not received by the 5th of the month will be automatically processed.

4) Select either Monthly Autopay OR Pay Manually

 

Withdrawal Policy

  • There is a two month minimum for all lessons.

  • One month/30 day notice from the first of the month is required to discontinue any payments.  For example, to withdraw from classes beginning Dec. 1st, notice must be given no later than Nov. 1st.  Automatic tuition charges will stop after the one-month notice period.

  • In the event of severe illness/injury, loss of employment or other immediate circumstance, withdrawals without financial penalty will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

 

Refunds/Credits

  • Refunds are only issued when Full Circle Dance must cancel a class.

  • No refunds will be given in the event that classes must temporarily move to a distance learning platform.

  • If anyone in your household has been exposed to CoronaVirus, we ask that you keep your child at home.  Your account will be credited for any missed classes due to CoronaVirus.

 

Safer Studio Policy

  • Full Circle Dance requires all staff and students to stay home when they are ill.
  • In order to reduce community spread of Coronavirus, we follow best practices and recommendations from our local health department.
  • Full Circle Dance understands that unlike older children and adults, young children cannot be expected to maintain social distancing at all times. Therefore FCD is focused on a hierarchy of measures beginning with keeping ill people home, followed by frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices, amplified cleaning, and curricular and facility adaptations to minimize contact and mingling where possible.
  • All studio classes are backed up on an online learning platform. In the event a class is unable to be held at the studio classes will convert to an online learning platform until in-studio classes can resume.
  • All classes are capped at 6 students per class. In order to keep class sizes small and avoid mixing and mingling, there will be NO makeup classes, drop-ins or punch cards available.

Covid-19 Mitigation Procedures

Mask Wearing

  • Teachers and parents must wear a mask at all times in the studio.

  • For people over 10 years of age, face coverings are currently mandatory in Jefferson County.

  • As a service to all of our students and families, we will be requiring masks during classes until further notice.

 

Frequent Hand Hygiene

  • Teachers must wash and/or sanitize hands before and after each class.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available in the entrance, waiting area and classroom.

  • Students will be encouraged to wash and/or sanitize hands before and after classes.

 

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

  • We have a 15 minute break between classes to sanitize door handles, barres, props, and high traffic areas.

  • Floors and bathrooms will be sanitized daily.

 

Minimized Mixing and Mingling

  • To reduce mixing and mingling, punch cards and makeup classes will no longer be available.

  • Dancers will be given assigned spots 6 feet apart, although we know that young children cannot be expected to social distance at all times.

  • Classes are capped at 6 students (5 students for toddler classes).

 

Continuous Communication

  • Please visit our website for continuous updates on the safety status of in person classes.  You will find a stop and go light icon that clearly indicates the status of classes.
