TUITION & FEES
INSPIRE School for the Arts tuition is based on a full season of dance. Our season runs from August 8, 2022 - June 3, 2023. Tuition is not based on the number of classes in a particular month as the number of classes will vary from month to month. Students typically receive an average of 35-38 classes per season. Tuition due dates and fees remain the same regardless of holidays, breaks, or absences. Monthly tuition is not pro-rated for student absence - if a class is cancelled due to teacher absence or illness, a make-up class will be scheduled. Tuition does not include the following: registration fee, costume fees, recital or show fees, or optional events & services (recital recording, pictures, INSPIRE events, camps, etc.). Tuition is non-transferable. Accounts must be current with a zero-dollar balance in order to receive costumes and/or perform in shows.
If registering for the full season, you may pay in full or divide it over 11 monthly installments. All monthly tuition payments, spring recital costume payments, and winter/spring recital fees will be posted to your account with due dates. August through May tuition is posted on the 1st of each month and due by the 7th of each month. June tuition is posted on the 1st of May and due by the 1st of June. Winter recital fees will be posted in September and due in October. Spring recital fees and costume fees will be posted in November and due in December.
Season tuition payments may be made in full prior to August 31, 2022 and will receive a 10% discount (equivalent to one free month of tuition). Parents who choose to pay tuition in full and later withdraw from classes for any reason (loss of interest, school obligations, injury, illness, etc.) will be refunded a prorated amount calculated by remaining whole months in the season divided by 11, followed by a 40% penalty. It is recommended you only pay the season in full if you are confident your dancer(s) will participate in the entire season. If paying for the season in full, please contact Samantha at email@example.com.

Payments received after their due date will be assessed a $20 late fee (per family), excluding costume payments, which will be assessed a $40 late fee (per costume) if paid after their due date. Costumes will not be ordered until payment is made in full. After the 15th of the month, students with unpaid balances will be denied class.

$40 per student and $25 for each additional immediate family member is due upon registration for all new and returning students. Registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Upon registration, each family will have access to an online portal. Parents may use their Parent Portal throughout the season to process payments, register for classes, check due dates, etc. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to keep all information (contact, payment, etc.) up to date. Please contact Samantha at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about your portal and/or account information.
If you wish to drop a class, multiple classes, or cancel your membership, it must be done before the 1st of any given month. If a notice of cancellation has been made after the 1st of the month, there will be no refunds or pro rata of tuition, however students may continue to attend classes until the end of that month. Any previously paid payments, costume fees, or recital fees, will not be refunded in the event of cancellation. Please contact Samantha at email@example.com for any cancellations.
There are no refunds on any payments made to INSPIRE School for the Arts, excluding the cancellation of paid in full season tuition (see TUITION & FEES above for more information).
