Long Beach Ballet Academy

Tuition Policies 2019-20 (printable)

All families pay the Annual Registration fee of $20.00 per student each September unless recently enrolled (April or later). By paying the registration fee, families agree to the following:

Class Tuition – Monthly September 2019 to August 2020

Tuition is due prior to the student’s first class of each month.  A late fee of $10.00 applies to payments received after the 7th (an additional $15 fee applies to payments received after the 15th).  Classes missed due to school holidays, rehearsal weeks, illness, or any other absence may be made up in another class of the same or lower level.  Make-up classes must be taken within three months of missed class and must be in addition to the student’s regular classes during any month for which regular tuition has been paid.  Make-up classes are allowed occasionally and must be approved prior to attendance.  Tuition is due year-round and is not pro-rated for partial attendance or holidays– except for pro-rating in August due to Summer Break and in December for students not participating in The Nutcracker production.  Tuition is non-refundable.  Continuous attendance is expected for all students in order to progress though the Academy.  Students absent for one month or more will be re-evaluated for placement and must re-register prior to returning to class.  Siblings receive a 10% discount on monthly tuition.*  There is an additional 10% discount when paying in advance for a period (Sept-Jan and/or Feb-Jun)*.  Credit/debit cards may be left on file for automatic payments.  We do not send bills or invoices.  Auto-Pay is recommended to avoid late charge (“Auto-pay” runs continuously until notice in writing) There is a $15.00 fee for returned checks.  *Tuition paid by Charter School purchase order is not eligible for discounts.

Fundraising

Long Beach Ballet is a non-profit organization and relies on donated income for its on-going programs. Tuition alone does not cover all of these expenses. All families are urged to participate in the school’s fundraising efforts.

Performances

Current continuing students in Pre-Ballet 4 and up are eligible to participate in both The Nutcracker in December and the annual school performance in the Spring upon payment of a performance participation fee for each production. Tuition and class attendance must be current through the months of June & December to participate in each performance.
