Hi, friends!

We are so excited to kick off the season this week! Classes will begin on Wednesday, September 8 and we can't wait to see you! Please read through the following to be sure you are ready, and let us know if you have any questions!


Important Dates

Sept 8 - The 2021/2022 season begins!

Sept 15 - Tuition/Performance Fees Due - Autopay clients please be sure to have a current card on file. You may call us at 405-348-3377 to update.

Oct 13-15 - Studio J Closed - Fall Break

Nov 22-26 - Studio J Closed - Thanksgiving Break

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
