Tuition/Policies

Tuition

Tuition is based on the amount of time a student is dancing per week, not the number of classes they are attending. For instance, if a student is taking a 1 one hour lyrical class, and a 1 one and a half hour ballet class, that student will be dancing 2.5 hours per week, at a monthly cost of $126.00.

Payments

Tuition is based on a full school year, which consists of classes held from August through May. It is paid monthly, in full, and in advance.  The rate remains the same whether it is a long (5 week) or short (3 week) month.  Payments are made by Credit Card only as tuition will be automatically charged on the dancer’s first class of every month. Tuition is not pro-rated or refunded for snow days or due to absences.  Make-up classes are strongly encouraged, but are expected to be made up within one month of the student’s absence and must be at the same level or lower.

Class Placement

NMBC’s professionals will determine the appropriate class level for each student based on his/her ability.  While age plays a definite role, especially with younger children, it becomes less and less of a factor in higher levels.  Students will not be moved up because of their age and should not expect to be moved up after a certain amount of time at a level.  Students will advance to the next level when their instructors see they have completed the curriculum requirements.

Withdrawal

Dropping a student from a class must be done in person with the front office.  Telling a teacher will not be accepted as a withdrawal.  If a student has not been withdrawn from a class by the end of the month, they will still be considered enrolled for the next month and will be charged automatically.

Make-up Classes

Make-up classes are strongly encouraged, but are expected to be made up within one month of the student’s absence and must be at the same level or lower.  Tuition is not pro-rated or refunded due to absences.
