  • Tuition is due upon registration.

Attendance Policy

If your child needs to miss a class, please fill out an Absence Form for his/her instructor. If you miss more than two of the final eight classes before Showcase you may be required to schedule a private lesson with your child’s instructor to ensure preparedness.

Parent Observation

For students under 5 years old, parents may watch class from inside the studio or wait outside. We trust that as parents, you know what will be most successful for your child and ask that you decide accordingly. Please use your best judgement about whether your presence is supportive or distracting for your child.


  • Refund requested 5 business days or more before activity: Fee paid minus $5 service charge.
  • Refund requested between 5 business days before the activity and the first week of the session: Fee paid minus initial class fee and $5 service charge.
  • Activity canceled by Apex PRD or FCD: 100% refund.
  • Refund requested after the first week of the session: No refund
  • No refunds will be given in the event that classes must temporarily move to a distance learning platform.

In the case of unexpected illness, accident or other extenuating circumstances, refunds will be issued for the remainder of the session on a case-by-case basis.


Consistent attendance is imperative to the growth and success of your student. We do not offer make-up classes for absences. We encourage you to do your best to ensure your child attends every class with his/her designated group.

In the event that classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, a makeup class will be scheduled.
