Accounting and Payment Procedures
An on staff finance manager WILL BE THE ONLY PERSON accepting payments of any form. It will be your responsibility to obtain and maintain a receipt for all payments. In case of a discrepancy regarding cash payments for class registration, dance attire, and/or small purchases within the studio we will not be able to honor them if they are not documented by a receipt.
Forms of Payments for Classes
We accept Visa/MasterCard/ Discover, cashier’s check, or money orders. No cash will be accepted for tuition.
Rate Per 1 Student
Every class after the 5th one per week per month is an additional $15.00 per class.
Tuition is to be paid on the first of each month. It will be considered late after the 3rd of the month and a $25.00 late fee will be automatically added on the 4th. If tuition is not paid before the 1st of the next month, your child and/or yourself will be refused admission to class. As each month allows for 3, 4, 5, lessons, tuition will remain the same each month. Mirror Me Dance Studio will operate on 6-month season, (January thru June) and (July thru December). PARTIAL PAYMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!
If your child and/or yourself chooses to opt out of the classes or drop enrollment prior to the end of the 6 month sessions a $250 cancellation fee will be charged. NO EXCEPTIONS! (Sessions run from January-June and July-December).
There will be a $35 registration fee for one student in the family and a $45 fee for two or more students in one immediate family per Spring (January thru June) and Fall (July thru December) enrollment.
To help defray the cost of recital expenses such as the theater rental, technicians, special effects, props, sets, security, ushers, etc., a non-refundable recital fee will be due during each Fall and Spring sessions. Recital fee will be due 2 months prior to Spring and Fall recital performances. There will be a payment plan available for this payment. The cost of the recital fee will depend on the location of the performance. Each student will be given one ticket for entry to the Spring and Fall recitals. All additional tickets will have to be purchase.
Costumes and fees
Payments for costumes and recital fees are ABSOLUTELY NON REFUNDABLE, for any reason.
Costumes are ordered between 4-6 weeks prior to the scheduled recital performance dates. Total cost of costumes will vary depending on the number of classes taken by your child and/or yourself. Therefore, costume accounts not paid in full by the due date WILL NOT BE ORDERED. If your child costumes are not ordered at the given time we cannot guarantee that the costumes will be received in time for pictures or the performance. Additionally, any costumes that are ordered after our initial order has been placed, there will be an added cost of $25 per costume to compensate for the extra shipping and ordering costs incurred. You and/or your child will have a costume fee for all classes enrolled within.
Costumes are not made custom to each student. Alterations are your responsibility.
Ballet is mandatory for all new students enrolling for the first six months for students 17 and under (Mini Movers and Modern Movers). Once the six month period has passed students can choose to opt out.
Classes with less than five students may be cancelled, combined, or rescheduled at Mirror Me Dance’s discretion.
Changes to you and/or your child’s schedule can be made up until two weeks of the new season.
Studio Closure and Unexpected Interruptions:
Classes may be canceled due to extreme weather or events beyond our control such as power outages, etc. No refunds for lessons missed due to these reasons will be given.
The school reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regularly scheduled teacher is ill or otherwise unable to teach classes. If a teacher is ill and the school cannot arrange a substitute any missed classes will be made-up.

Mini Movers ages 4-12, Modern Movers ages 13-17, Mega Movers ages 18 and Up.
We offer dance classes in different genres such as tap, ballet, jazz/creative movement, hip-hop, Seduction (Mega Movers), and Work It Out (Mega Movers). Classes range 1 hour in length. ALL NEW MINI MOVERS AND MODERN MOVERS ENROLLED IN ANY DANCE CLASSES ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE BALLET. Under NO circumstances will tuition be pro-rated to exclude ballet. We strongly believe Ballet to be the core of a dance education. Many techniques required for tap and jazz are based on ballet technique. We do not expect our students to become prima ballerinas, but we do expect them to understand the importance of ballet in becoming a better jazz, tap, and contemporary dancer.
If you and/or your child are interested in private lessons it will be discussed on an individualized basis. It must not interfere with classes that have already been scheduled.
Each parent/guardian and/or adult students will be given a photo release form to sign to grant permission to Mirror Me Dance Studio to take photographs to use in brochures, web sites, posters, advertisements and other promotional materials.
