Monthly tuition fees are due by the 5th of the month. Payments can either be made online, at the drop slot at the studio or by mail.
Costume charges are billed in October and are due by December 5th. They must be paid in full along with December fees before your child's costume can be ordered and/or received.
Performance fee of $170 is billed in February and is due by March 5th. April and May Tuition will be billed together and due by April 5th. Performance fee must be paid along with your final balance in order for a family to receive performance tickets.
A $ 5.00 late charge will be added to accounts which are not paid by the 10th of the month. A $25.00 charge will be added per NSF transaction.
If a student decides to drop, please notify the teacher and office immediately. Unfortunately refunds cannot be made. If costumes were ordered we are unable to cancel. Dropping classes after the performance pieces have been choreographed and students have been placed impacts the entire class and disrupts the choreography. We feel it is important to teach a child that quitting at a time that affects other peers is not a considerate choice. Most students should know by November if they like the class and would like to continue.
Students are to arrive at least 10 minutes before class and be picked up immediately after class ends.
Whenever possible, notify the studio when you will be absent. If you decide to drop out of dancing, please let the teacher and the office know of your intentions.
Classes may be canceled due to inclement weather. The closing of Lafayette Parish Schools are usually the guideline for classes to be canceled. You will be notified by email when classes or canceled.
Make-up Classes - If class is missed due to illness, injury, weather, etc., a student will be allowed to make-up the missed class at another time in a class of equal ability. The student must schedule the make-up class with the teacher. Make-up classes are not eligible for perfect attendance.
Food, drinks or gum are not allowed in the dance studio.
Cover-ups or street cloths should be worn to and from class.
Jewelry is not allowed in class.
Pictures will be taken on a designated day in April, at DeLarue Dance Centre. Picture request forms will be emailed in March. You must reply with payment to receive a picture time. Picture times will be posted on the DDC website. For further information contact us.
Visiting days by parents and immediate family are observed during a designated time in November that will be posted on the DDC website. All other times, parents are asked not to observe in the class rooms due to the obvious distraction that is caused. Students will be looking to the parent for approval and miss important points of instruction. The teacher should have the authority during class.
