Please check in the office for drop-in availability for FULL classes.  Please see the Student/Parent Handbook for the procedure to excuse absences and make-up missed classes.


Tuition Policies

Tuition may be paid by Semester or Monthly. Semester Tuition paid in full is due upon registration and is NON-REFUNDABLE. Monthly tuition is 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. To pay tuition Monthly, the responsible party is required to set up automatic payments through Active Network. The automatic withdrawal will come out on the 15th of each month during the payment plan agreement period. If the monthly payment plan option is chosen online during registration, the higher rate will still be charged if the balance is paid off early.

Payments received after five working days of the due date will incur a $15.00 late fee. As a courtesy, separate payment reminder emails are sent through Active Network and Springfield Ballet's business office. It is still the responsibility of the applicable person/s to make tuition payments on-time, regardless if reminders are received, or they will be subject to a late fee (when applicable).

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.

Tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE—Once registered, all participants agree to pay for the entire semester/session, whether paid by Semester or Monthly. If registration is cancelled BEFORE classes begin each semester, a $25 cancel fee, plus the $10-$15 registration fee will not be refunded.


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 payments.

Springfield Ballet will accept check payments through the business office after the registration fee is paid online at the time of registration. NO CASH is accepted for tuition payments.

Any returned checks will result in a $30 charge.

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

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.

Any account balances not paid after 90 days will be sent to collections.

 

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). Other extenuating circumstances may be approved for credit only (no refunds), but that will be determined on a case-by-case basis and must be presented in writing. Please see the Student/Parent Handbook for further information.
