Tuition (N/A For Debut Program)
Tuition is automatically billed by the 4th of each month and entitles you to attend your selected class once per week. When you first signup for a membership with us you will be paying for your first months tuition and a down payment that will be added to your account and used towards the next few months tuition.Because billing is monthly, and some months have more than 4 weeks, this will simply result in 2 free classes per year, but your tuition bill will remain the same.
Tuition subscriptions are automatically billed monthly and will continue unless we are given written notice by email (see below on cancelation).
In the event that a dancer does not come to class, schedule makeups, or reply to email/phone messages for 6 weeks, we reserve the right to cancel the tuition subscription and release the dancer’s spot to another dancer.
Private Lesson and Performance Lesson Cancelation Policy
In the event that you need to cancel or reschedule your private or performance lesson, we request you let us know at least 48 hours in advance of the time scheduled for your lesson.
Requests to cancel or reschedule a lesson after the 48 hour window, will incur a non refundable fee of 50% of the lesson price to reschedule. For example, if your lesson price was $90, then an additional $45 is due upon rescheduling.
If you are late to your lesson, we unfortunately cannot go over the scheduled time. For example, if your lesson is scheduled for 5pm and you arrive at 5:30, your lesson will be 30 minutes. We cannot offer refunds for missed lesson time.
Canceling Or Pausing Your Tuition (N/A For Debut Program)
When life is just to busy for dance, or in the case of injury, let us know and we’ll pause your tuition payments until a time when you’re ready to re-join. We can pause your tuition for up to 3 months. You will not be charged a down payment when your membership is automatically resumed after the pause. Depending on how long of a break it was, and the available openings in class, we may have your old spot open, or we may recommend a new spot for you. Or, if you no longer want to take classes at all, we’ll cancel your tuition payments after you’ve taken the classes that you’ve already purchased.
We appreciate as much notice as possible, even if you will be canceling at a future date. This helps us re-fill your spot in class as soon as we can.
Cancelations must be requested in writing by email no later than 11:59pm EST on the 3rd of any given month. Requests made after this time will incur a non-refundable monthly subscription payment for that month.
If you have unused classes at the time of cancelation or pausing, you may use those classes as makeups when you have resumed regular dance classes again. While paused or canceled, you may only use 1 makeup class per month. Makeup classes cannot be applied to future tuition in place of paying for a regularly scheduled class.
Any remaining makeup credits will expire 180 days after the date of cancelation. If you do decide to join us again the clock will stop on the expiration of those make up credits, so that they won’t expire while you’re actively taking class with us. You will also be subject to pay the down payment again.
Dance requires commitment, regular attendance, and dedication in order to make progress. Additionally, each class progresses together week-to-week, so being in class is important to keep up and continue improving.
However, we totally understand that as adults, life can be busy: you, your kids, your parents or your pets get sick, you go on vacation, you get stuck at work, etc.
Any missed class can be made up with a comparable class. Active members are invited to take as many makeup classes as they would like. Refer to the section on Cancelations for policies regarding makeups while canceled from regular classes.
Please email us to let us know about any classes you’ll miss and would like to makeup.
Switching Classes (N/A For Debut Program)
If your schedule changes, or you would like to change to a different class for any reason, simply let us know of your desire to move and your new availability, and we’ll suggest options for you.
We love when you refer your friends to take dance classes! When your friend purchases a class or lesson you’ll receive a $30 credit toward your next tuition bill. Click here for more info!
Substitute Teachers & Canceled Classes
If your teacher needs to miss class for any reason, we will find a substitute whenever possible. In the event that class needs to be cancelled, you will be credited the amount for the missed class on your next tuition payment.
Debut Program Policies
Minimum Number of Dancers In Class
Each session has a minimum of three dancers.
We must have 3 dancers registered in order to run the session. If 3 dancers don’t register by the deadline (1 week prior to the start date), then we will push the start date back by 1 month.
If you are no longer able to join due to the start date being pushed back, let us know within 48 hours of the announcement of the date change and we will issue you a full refund.
If after that extra month of time, we still cannot fill the Debut program, we will cancel it and try again with the next set of Debut programs in 3 months. We will notify registrants and you can choose if you’d like to defer your registration to the next 3 month program or receive a full refund.
If you register for a Debut Program and can no longer attend for any reason other than Tournesol Dance changing the date of the class (see above), we will issue you a refund ONLY if we are able to fill your spot in class prior to the start date of the program. We will do our absolute best to fill your spot if you can no longer attend, but if we are unable to fill your spot, then we cannot offer you a refund.
We understand things come up and sudden schedule changes or issues sometimes happen. We will do our very best to accommodate your needs and preferences. Due to the group nature of our Debut Program, cancelations can only be requested 10 business days prior to the first day of class, so we can try and fill your spot.
