Tuition, Late Tuition & Returned Checks:
KP Ballet invoices on a trimester basis. There are 36 weeks of classes from September through June, which are divided into three, twelve-week trimesters. Weeks that KP Ballet is closed – Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break and Spring Break – aren’t counted as part of a trimester.
A $25 late fee will be added for late tuition.
Students may not take class if tuition is more than ten days late.
Students may participate in performances only if account balances are paid in full.
KP Ballet passes through any returned check fees.
Student Withdrawal & Tuition Refund:
Families who wish to withdraw should notify KP Ballet via email/in writing. KP Ballet will refund unused tuition effective the date the family notifies the office of a student’s withdrawal. However, there are no retroactive tuition refunds for classes missed prior to the date KP Ballet is notified of the student’s withdrawal.
Registration fees and Performance Fees are not refundable.
Families can schedule a makeup class for any class missed. However, makeup classes must be taken during the session in which students are enrolled, and not beyond that session.
If students don’t take their makeup classes during the session in which they’re enrolled, there are no tuition refunds for classes missed. Missed classes aren’t transferrable to another student/family, nor can families carry over makeups into a subsequent session, e.g., missed summer classes don’t carry over into the following September to June session, and visa versa.
How to Schedule a Makeup Class:
Please call or email the studio office and let them know when you’d like to take a makeup class. KP Ballet limits the number of dancers who makeup in each class, so we ask families to schedule makeup classes in advance.
Late Pick Up/Early Drop Off:
Students may arrive no earlier than twenty minutes prior to class time and must be picked up within fifteen minutes of class dismissal.
After the last class of the evening, families will be charged a fee to compensate the instructor waiting with a student whose family is more than fifteen minutes late. The fee is $20 for a thirty-minute wait, and $40 for a wait longer than thirty minutes.
For the safety of our students and teachers, KP Ballet follows the Haverford Township School District for weather-related cancellations.
KP Ballet Academy will postpone and/or reschedule performances in extremely adverse weather conditions or in the event of a circumstance beyond KP Ballet’s control, such as a performance venue closure (e.g., lack of heat, a fire, or other reasons beyond KP Ballet’s control).
In the event of adverse weather conditions, check your email or call the office beginning at 7:00 AM the morning of a rehearsal or performance for updates on the status. Please check before you leave for the performance venue as the status may change if the weather worsens, and the rehearsal or performance could be delayed or postponed.
If KP Ballet must postpone a performance we’ll try to reschedule it at another time during the show weekend. If that’s not possible, another date will be announced as soon as one can be arranged with the performance venue, and original tickets will be honored at the door. KP Ballet has a strict no refund ticket policy in the event of a rescheduled performance.
Grounds for Dismissal:
The use of drugs, alcohol or tobacco on school property is grounds for dismissal.
Any parent, guardian or student behavior that, in KP Ballet’s sole discretion, is determined to be disruptive or disrespectful is grounds for dismissal.
KP Ballet reserves the right to cancel any class that doesn’t meet the minimum enrollment requirements.
