Registration @ Houston Dance Works
Your first tuition installment is due at the time of registration. The subsequent tuition installments are due in full on the 1st calendar day of every month. Tuition payments may be paid by check or through our online portal.
Tuition is based on the number of quarter hours a child is enrolled in and is not published on the website. To view tuition, please create an account in our online portal to view the tuition for your desired class(es.)
Please take note to include your child’s name in the Memo section of your check and what your check covers (i.e. – Aug 2011 Tuition and Registration for Mary Doe.)
Tuition is the same each month and does not change due to holidays. Our tuition is divided into 10 equal installments. We add the tuition for the year and divide the total by 10 to determine our tuition installments. Tuition will not be refunded, credited, or prorated in the case of absence(s.)
Students enrolling after the start of the year different amount for their first installment. From the date of enrollment, we look at the cost of classes for the remainder of the season for a student and subtract the remaining tuition to be paid throughout the season. If the cost of classes for the remainder of the season is greater than the remaining tuition to be paid, the student will have a Tuition Remainder Charge added to the first installment; if less, the student will have a credit subtracted from the first installment. We do this to ensure tuition is fair for all and students are only charged for classes from the point of enrollment.
After completing the class registration and checkout process online or registering in person, families who register after the beginning of the dance season may see an additional charge on their account ledger within 48 hours for the prorated tuition difference. This prorated difference must be paid by the due date of the family's next tuition installment.
Tuition not paid by the 3rd of the month is subject to a $10 late fee. If tuition is not paid by the 15th of the month, the dancer will not be allowed to return to class. After the end of the month, the student's enrollment will be dropped, and the family will need to complete the registration process again to return to class.
There will be a $30 service charge for any returned check. Checks must be picked up at the studio office with repayment in cash or money order with the $30 service charge included.
Tuition may be mailed to the studio address. Please make sure the name of the student(s) and what the payment covers is written clearly on the check.
