Attendance & Payment Policies

DSA Attendance & Make-up Policy

Private Students are expected to attend each scheduled lesson within the year. We can allow two make-up lessons per year. The teachers should have at least 36 hours notice for non-emergencies for you to be eligible for a make-up lesson. Please contact your teacher as soon as possible if you are unable to get to your lesson due to illness or other unavoidable problems. Dance and Kindermusik students may attend another class of the appropriate age and skill level. Classes will be held on Monday holidays unless indicated on the schedule.

DSA Payment Policy

Once your child has been registered for one of our classes, we consider that an agreement that you are planning to attend for the whole eight or nine month season. We have tried to make our payment schedule as convenient for you as possible to accommodate your needs.

We offer monthly credit card tuition payments. Registration including input of your credit card information will be done solely online by you. Your credit card will automatically be billed on or around the 20th of the month.  You may also pay with cash or by check for the full payment. We do not accept monthly payments other than on-line via credit card.

Registration and payment of Registration Fee and first month tuition is expected when classes start. You may access the online payment from www.dbc.org/schoolforthearts. Registration Fee is payable upon registration and will be billed annually.

A fee of $25 will be assessed for any checks that are returned as non sufficient funds. Any other payment arrangements must be made through the DSA office on a case per case basis. Please note that Kindermusik Home Materials fees will are included in the total fee as long as your child is registered for the complete 8-month session of classes.

DSA Withdrawal Policy

Your desire to withdraw from DSA must be presented to the director in written form. You must give a month’s notice so your teacher will have time to accept new students or reassign your spot.  Refunds will be determined on a case by case basis. Dance Costume fees and Kindermusik Home Materials will not be refunded.
