Tuition Policies

    Tuition may be paid by Semester (in full at the time of registration) or Monthly (four installments). Semester Tuition is due upon registration and is NON-REFUNDABLE. 

    Please note: tuition rates listed at the beginning of online registration include a payment plan fee ($10-22, depending on level). If tuition is paid in full during order checkout, a discount in the full amount of the payment plan will be automatically applied to the final balance due.

    Should you choose to pay tuition monthly, tuition may be paid in four installments--the first is due upon registration, then the following three payments are due on the 15th of the three consecutive months following.  To pay tuition Monthly, you must set up payments through Active Network.  There is an automatic withdrawal option to choose so that the  monthly installment is paid to Springfield Ballet on the 15th of each month during the payment plan agreement period. 

    *If you do not choose the automatic option, you will need to log into your Active Network account each month to pay and are subject to the late fee if not paid by the 15th. 

    *If you choose the monthly tuition option, you are also able to make payments to your student's tuition at any time during the semester, either in the Ballet office or through your online Active account.

    Payments received after five working days of the due date will incur a $15.00 late fee.

    Tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE—Once registered, all participants agree to pay for the entire semester, whether paid by Semester or Monthly.

    At the time of registration, a registration fee is due per student. If you register before or on the open registration date, the fee is $10 per student. After the open registration date, the fee is $15 per student.

    Families with two or more children enrolled receive a 20% discount off the second (and all subsequent) student’s tuition.To receive the family rate, you must register all siblings at one time.

    Springfield Ballet will accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express for tuition and production fee payments. Springfield Ballet will accept check or credit card payments through the business office after the registration fee is paid online at the time of registration.  NO CASH is accepted for tuition and production fee payments.

    The $5.00 convenience fee is waived for all tuition and production fee payments, including private lessons, rehearsal makeup lessons, and summer camps.

    The $5 convenience charge will apply to drop-in classes (including adult), class card purchases (including adult), workshops, master classes, special event purchases, and other miscellaneous purchases. Cash, check, or credit/debit card are accepted for these purchases.

    Private lessons and rehearsal makeup lessons must be paid at the time of the lesson.

    Any returned checks will result in a $30 charge.

    If there is an unpaid balance on an account, the student will not be able to enroll in any subsequent Springfield Ballet classes, productions, camps, workshops or master classes until the account is in good standing.

    Account balances unfulfilled will be sent to a collection agency after 90 days in arrears.

    Springfield Ballet will NOT refund or credit any tuition, except in the case of serious injury or illness as verified by a doctor’s note or if moving out of town (please notify us in writing).
