REGISTRATION


Class sizes are limited and fill up quickly. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. A registration fee is due at the time of enrollment to hold your child’s spot. For these reasons, you may wish to register as soon as you know your fall schedule. Once registration is received, a place will be reserved for you. By holding your spot, others may be prevented from joining the class, so please notify the studio immediately if you need to change or drop a class. 

Policy

Studio J PAC reserves the right to modify this schedule by adding, dropping, or adjusting class times, but only when absolutely necessary. We will inform affected clients of these changes via email.

Prior to enrollment, it is essential to review and comprehend all Studio J PAC policies and procedures. Acceptance of these policies, available on our website www.studiojdanceok.com under the INFO tab and during the enrollment process, is a prerequisite for enrollment. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding these policies before registering for any classes.

 

Tuition

Studio J strives to make things as easy as possible for busy families. We do this by streamlining our recital and costume fees into one payment. Our dance season runs like a standard school year, beginning in September. Program rates are based on the total season’s program, not a specific number of classes within a month, and are conveniently divided into 9 equal payments. Studio J theater season runs from September through April. Just like our dance season, we have Included class tuition and production fees Into one payment and divided It Into 8 equal payments.

 

Discounts: SJ offers a 5% discount on multiple classes and a 10% active duty military discount. Please notify us of the military discount.

PLEASE NOTE - There is no such thing as taking a month off. Monthly payments are for a portion of the year, not a specific month of lessons, and a space is reserved for your child in a specific class based on this schedule. Therefore, tuition payments will be charged monthly regardless of whether you attend the scheduled class or until we receive your written discontinuation notice.

SJ offers no refunds, deductions, or credits for missed or discontinued classes. You may, however, attend a make-up class if you must miss your own, due to illness or other circumstances. Although the studio will be closed for some holidays during the dance season, these are not paid classes and do not need to be made up. Students must complete the full dance year to receive their recital costumes.

Camp fees are non-refundable.   However, with notification at least 24  hours in advance, we can credit your account to be used for future classes.

There is a $25.00 charge on all returned checks and checks will not be processed more than once. A $10.00 late fee will be added to accounts not paid by the 15th of each month. Any student whose account is past due 30 days will not be permitted to participate in class the following month until tuition is current, including any late fees and/or penalties. Any student whose account is more than 60 days past due forfeits their place in class and will be required to pay any past due fees and then enroll as a new student if space permits.

 

To drop a class mid-season, you must submit an email request and receive a confirmation of drop from the front office.  Confirmation will be sent as soon as any current or past due charges are resolved.  Drops must be received before the first calendar day of the following month or full tuition will be owed for that month.  If you drop mid-season, any paid Event/Recital Fees up to that point, as well as costumes will be forfeited. 

Automatic Payment Plan:


Accounts will be set up using a convenient automatic payment plan. Fees will be withdrawn on the 5th of every month. At the time of registration, you will choose to have your Visa, Master Card, or Discover automatically charged for the remaining payments.

Class Drop Procedure


To drop a class for any reason BEFORE the season starts, please submit an email or call the office.  Enrollment fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

If you need to stop your year's tuition obligation to Studio J for any reason, please submit a written notice to the office at least 30 days before you plan to discontinue. Upon receiving your notification, we will deactivate your Automatic Payment Plan. Please be aware that if you discontinue in the middle of the month, you won't receive a refund for classes you didn't attend. Any current or past due balances must be settled immediately upon dropping. It's important to note that non-attendance doesn't count as a dropped class, and all charges will still apply. All drops must be processed through the Studio J office.

 

Communication


Email is our primary means of business communication at Studio J PAC.  To stay informed, you must register using a primary email account that you will check regularly.  We will also use social media to send out urgent notifications and updates, so like and follow us on your preferred platform!  Finally, we encourage all of our students to subscribe to your class’s Band App.  You will be invited and given a link near the start of the season, and this will be how your instructor communicates with you by posting pictures, videos, and performance info.

Dress Code


Studio J Performing Arts Center requires that all dancers wear the appropriate attire for their specific classes.  In addition to the clothing requirements listed below by class, hair should be pulled back out of the dancer’s face for all classes.  Dance shoes, including Hip Hop sneakers, should NEVER be worn outside as this can ruin shoes and damage the dance floors.  Please mark your dancer’s name on all of their dance shoes to prevent mix-ups during in-class shoe changes and performances.  No jewelry, with the exception of stud earrings, should be worn in class.
