Hello, everyone!


Welcome to your Friday Reminder! It was great seeing so many of you at Open House this week - you are all going to look FABULOUS in your Studio J gear! Dance attire, shoes, and tights will still be available for purchase in the Studio J PAC boutique all season. We are less than two weeks out from the start of classes, so please be sure you are keeping current on all Studio J communication! You should have received and accepted your invitation to the Band App - if not, please see instructions below and DO IT TODAY!!! Here's the latest...


Important Dates

Tuition Policy Reminder - Monthly tuition is set by dividing the yearly cost into 9 convenient installments, and then adding the performance fees. Breaks, weather cancellations, dress rehearsals, pictures, and performances have all been accounted for, so tuition will be the same each month Sept-May regardless of the number of classes in any given month. Tuition is due no later than the 15th, after which late fees will apply. If you need to drop a class, you MUST contact the office...you will continue to be charged until your drop is formally processed. Drops must be processed before the start of the next month or you will owe tuition for that month, even if you haven't attended a class. Thank you for your cooperation!

Epic Learning Fund - Studio J continues to be an Epic Vendor, however there have been significant changes to the process. Epic is implementing a new system and there will be a short lapse in their ability to approve and pay for services. If you plan to use Epic Learning Funds for Studio J classes, you must complete this Google form and then await confirmation by email on when Epic payments will go into affect. Please be aware, parents are responsible for all payments prior to approval, and following the depletion of Epic funds. You are also responsible for paying your monthly performance fee, so you must have a current card on file for auto pay. Here is the link to the form: https://forms.gle/LGrHCg8mSRPDUpT89
