TUITION & REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Classes run continuously from September through June (with the exception of spring and winter breaks) unless designated otherwise. Tuition is based on a 38 week school year and is invoiced in 4 installments or sessions. Each session represents one quarter of the school year and is not considered an individual course (each session does not always equal 10 classes). Tuition is based on the number of class hours a student takes per week and can be calculated by using our Tuition Chart. The figures on the tuition chart are for one session of classes. A full year tuition would be paid 4 times from Sept to June based on the below dates for the 2020-2021 Season:
Session 1: August 30th to October 31st
Session 2: November 1st to January 16th (includes a 2 week Winter Break Dec 20th- Jan 2nd)
Session 3: January 17th to March 20th
Session 4: March 21st to June 5th (includes a 2 week Spring Break March 28th – April 10th)
Wayne Ballet uses an online system for registration, class selection, and tuition payments called the Parent Portal. You can access the Portal here:
*Due to new policies surrounding covid-19 we will no longer be accepting in person registrations or payments. If you experience issues registering on our portal please email us to request a PDF registration form.
A Registration Fee of $35 per student or $50 per family (two or more students) is applicable to each season and is due at the time of enrollment in addition to tuition. We accept registrations throughout the year for most classes, so it is possible to enroll at any time throughout the year and tuition can be pro-rated accordingly (however students who enroll during the fourth session may not have the privilege of participating in the year-end showcase if choreography has already begun). We recommend registering in advance before joining the Pre School and Pre Ballet level classes, as they tend to fill up quickly. Students must be fully potty-trained in order to begin Pre School classes at Wayne Ballet.
Tuition is due 2 weeks prior to the start of the new session. You will receive an email with the invoice and due date for each session. Tuition is due regardless of whether you have received an invoice so please remember to check the website calendar and bulletin board for due dates. When you enroll in AutoPay through the Parent Portal we will automatically bill your credit card when the next session payment is due. Wayne Ballet’s primary means of communication is through email so be sure to provide your current email when completing registration and be sure to add email@example.com to your safe senders list. Once a student is enrolled for the Sept to June season,Wayne Ballet will continue to bill each session the same as the previous, unless notified otherwise! Please note that it is your responsibility to notify Wayne Ballet if you choose to drop a class or your card will be charged. Bi-weekly late fees of $25 will continue to accrue until your account balance is paid. Please be sure to update your AutoPay account if you receive a new card.
*Due to new policies surrounding covid-19 our registration process will now require you enroll in AutoPay. We will not be accepting payments in person or by mail until further notice.
Tuition payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. However, we do have a flexible policy for the youngest students who are eager to dance but who may not be quite ready for a class environment. If this is the case we will apply the balance to a future session up to one year from initial date of registration. Sometimes just a few months can make a big difference.
Monthly payment plans are available under certain circumstances. Please contact our office for more information. In the case of monthly payment plans tuition is calculated using the same scale and cannot be pro-rated once a session has begun.
Private or semi-private classes in all disciplines are available in certain circumstances. Please call the studio at (610) 688 3904 for information and prices.
Summer Session is separate from our regular yearly tuition and prices may be different. A separate registration fee will apply for summer sessions, workshops, and intensives.
CLASS CANCELLATIONS/SCHEDULE CHANGES
Our schedule is always subject to change, based on enrollment demands. If the class you have selected is closed or cancelled, we will contact you as soon as possible to help find an alternative that works for you. Please note: your class selections are not guaranteed until payment is received.
