RPAC » TUITION/CLASS POLICIES
Our monthly tuition plan begins in September. RPAC’s payment plan is an optional plan where payments are divided over 6 or 8 months, as a convenience to you. Tuition can also be paid in full on your first class, if you would rather not have your payments spread out over time.
Statements will be emailed on the 1st of the month and payment is due by the 15th of each month. A late fee of $20 will automatically be applied to all overdue accounts on the 16th of each month.
Credit card users will be charged the first of every month, beginning September 1.
Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). Please make checks payable to RPAC and mail payments to
215 Chestnut Street, Ridgewood, NJ 07450. Tuition in the form of cash and check can also be placed in our black metal mailbox outside of the Studio A room door (left of the main entrance) and in the box on the top of the desk.
The monthly tuition plan is a courtesy to you to spread the tuition payments over time. The total tuition takes into account holidays, closings, vacations and inclement weather/ snow days. If you decide to use the monthly plan,
it does not reflect how many classes are in each month. Monthly payments are due regardless of holidays/ closings, weather days in a given month,
as the tuition reflects the whole dance year.
There are NO REFUNDS for days/classes missed due to injuries, illness or closings due to weather or emergencies.
The deposit amount for each class is $125/$150. ONE-HALF of my DEPOSIT per class is NON-REFUNDABLE, as each registration holds a spot within the class/es that I am signing up for.
If a CLASS is DROPPED (for ANY reason including injury, health issue, schedule change etc.), after 4 classes regardless of attendance, there will be NO REFUND due to me and I am responsible for my tuition in full; in certain situations, a partial credit may be applied to my account for use the next season.
A dancer’s participation in class/es also includes his/her PARTICIPATION in the SPRING RECITAL, which includes costumes and ticket sales. Online ticket sales begin approximately one month prior to the date/s of the shows.
Parent agrees to notify RPAC via email by the last week of December classes that the dancer will NOT be PARTICIPATING in the Spring Recital or a COSTUME will be ORDERED for the Spring Recital and a FEE will be assessed.
GENERAL SUMMER CAMP POLICIES
To hold a spot in our camps, the full amount is due upon registration.
A $50 ADMINISTRATIVE FEE PER WEEK will be assessed, if my dancer/s is unable to attend camp/s for any reason, no exceptions. However, if we receive written notice by email two (2) weeks prior to the camp start, the remaining balance of my weekly camp tuition, minus the weekly $50 administrative fee, will be placed as a CREDIT on my RPAC account. If we DO NOT receive written notice of a dancer that is unable to attend camp for any reason, 50% of my weekly summer camp tuition will be placed as a CREDIT on my RPAC account; the remaining 50% is NON-REFUNDABLE.
Camp weeks may be switched as long as there is availability.
All camps are drop off camps; should my child be unable to separate, a CREDIT for the week of camp, minus the $50 weekly administrative fee, will be placed on my account for future RPAC classes.
Dancers with food allergies should bring their own snacks/drinks to camp.
Due to safety concerns, all ballet slipper strings will be cut.
