Frequently Asked Questions

Tuition

Classes are paid on a monthly or 3-month basis, due the last class of each month (or term) to secure your seat for the next month. New students starting mid-month will pay $45 per class for the remaining of the first month. There is no refund or credit for any classes missed. *See the “Absences & Make-Ups” below.

Late Fees

$10 late fee will be charged if the tuition is not by the 2nd class of the month (or term). We reserve the right to dismiss any student whose tuition account is outstanding.

Absences & Make-Ups

Make-up classes are given as a courtesy if the studio is notified in WRITING (email or text) a minimum of 24 hours in advance of the absence or rescheduling. No show or late notice receives NO makeup.  Make-up can be completed in an alternate class of the week or the video recording of the project. 

Termination

If you decide not to continue with our classes, as a courtesy, please send a written notification (email or text) at least two weeks prior to the end of the term so that we can schedule other students. The opportunity to make-up the absence is lost after the enrollment expires.

Late Pick-Up (In-Person Class)

Students must be picked up ON TIME after class. There is a $10 late pickup charge every 15-min block once exceeding the first 15-minute grace period.

Behavior Policy

Our studio is built on mutual respect for all parties involved (students, parents, and teachers.) In the rare case that a student exhibits difficulty or disruptive behavior in the classroom, the parent will be notified. We will attempt to resolve the challenge through a friendly dialogue. If a resolution cannot be reached, it may be deemed that our studio is not a suitable learning environment for a student.

To foster an environment of independence for students, parents are to leave the studio when the instruction begins. Exceptions will be applied to students with special needs (or IEP) who require a “shadow”.

Special Needs

We do our best to accommodate students with special needs if we are aware of it. Please indicate any diagnosis or special needs on the registration form including, but not limited to, Autism, Asperger’s, ADD/ADHD, Learning Disability, on IEP, PT/OT, etc.
