Tuition
Tuition for the year may be paid in full or in monthly installments. All monthly payments are to be paid in equal installments regardless of the number of lessons in a month or the number of lessons a student attends. Tuition is due the 1st of every month. Payments will be considered late if received after the 7th of the month and a $15 late fee will apply. At registration, all families will be required to present a security deposit equal to one month’s tuition plus late fee for group classes, cost of one lesson plus late fee for private lessons or a credit card number. If an account has not been made up-to-date by the last day of the month, the credit card will be charged or the deposit applied to the outstanding balance. Once the deposit has been used, a student will not be allowed to return to class until another security deposit has been made. All accounts must be up-to-date to participate in the end-of-the year performances.

Payments may be made by cash, credit or debit card, PayPal online payment, and by check/money order. Please make all payments out to LaBelle Performing Arts (LPA), and write the student’s name in the note section. There will be a $35 fee for all returned checks. If more than two checks are returned, payments will only be accepted in cash or money order form.

If a student chooses to drop a class or a medical emergency arises, he or she must submit a drop form to cancel a class. These forms are available online or at the studio office. A drop form must be submitted, otherwise your credit card will be charged or the security deposit applied to that month’s tuition. If a student has paid for the year in full, LPA will not refund the tuition. Exceptions will only be granted for medical reasons. A written doctor’s excuse and Drop Form will be required before the student will be refunded the remaining full months’ tuition.

Registration Fee
A $35 non-refundable yearly registration fee applies to all families at LPA. The fee will be waived for those families paying for the year in full.

LPA offers all students the opportunity to participate in an end-of-the-year performance. Costumes are selected by the instructor and approved by the director. Costume cost is $65 per costume for Pre-Ballet/Tap, Creative Movement, Little Dudes, and Hippity Hop, and $85 for all other classes if paid by December 5, 2020. Late costume orders will be accepted until January 30, 2021 with a late charge of $15 per costume to cover shipping and handling. Costume payments are non-refundable. All accounts must be up to date in order for a student to receive their costumes. Recital costumes must be purchased through the studio.

Showcase/Production Fee
A $35 showcase/production fee applies to all dance students (fee is only $15 for each additional family member) to help cover the rental of the theatre, sound and lighting technicians, and props and sets.
