SESD Fall/Spring season runs from August-first weekend in May (Showcase weekend). All classes are a season long commitment, and early withdrawal is explained below.
Dancers in Levels 2+ please see this page for Summer attendance policies
*Please note; in order to “hold” a spot, Registration fee and each month’s tuition must be collected. For example, if student registers for a class in August but won’t attend until September, we must collect a Reg fee and August tuition to hold student’s spot, even if student does not attend in August. We are happy to offer make up classes.
Registration is open through the end of November. Students should be registered and accounts paid in full no later than the the week prior to Thanksgiving break to be eligible to participate in our Spring Showcase.
After submitting the registration form, you will receive an invoice via email to pay your student’s Registration fee.
Once the Registration fee/invoice is paid, we will process your registration form and add your dancer to the classes you selected.
You will then receive an official confirmation email from Katherine at [email protected] to confirm monthly tuition amounts and other important information. Your quick response will be needed and greatly appreciated!
Annual Registration Fee is due at fall registration for new students:
$55 one student (includes 1 SESD t-shirt!)
$65 per family (includes 2 SESD t-shirts!)
Annual Returning Student Fee is due at fall registration for returning students:
$45 one student (includes 1 SESD t-shirt!)
$55 per family (includes 2 SESD t-shirts!)
Registration Fees cover the time it takes to set up student’s accounts and are non-refundable. Registration fees MUST be paid before we process your form, and your dancer attends class. Due to unfortunate situations in the past, we must remain consistent with the policy to protect our business and thank you for paying your Registration fees promptly!
When we process your registration form, an invoice will be sent via Square to the email address indicated on your registration form. Invoice/Registration fee needs to be paid to complete the registration process and reserve your dancer’s spot in class and our program.
Please remember that class sizes are limited. In order to officially reserve your student’s spot, we must promptly collect Registration fees and tuition.
Early Withdrawal Policy:
Fall & Spring SESD classes are a season-long commitment. In order to withdraw from a class before the end of the season, please email the studio director at [email protected] with your withdrawal request. Students who simply do not attend class will still be considered “enrolled” and tuition will still be collected until an official notification has been sent, received, and acknowledged.
Upon notification of withdrawal, a $50 withdrawal fee is due; you will receive an invoice as soon as we process your withdrawal request.
If dancer returns to SESD the following season, their withdrawal fee is applied towards their new Registration fee.
***Effective March 24, 2020: We will no longer accept cash or check payments effective April 1, 2020***
Tuition is based on the total number of classes per season then divided equally each month. Tuition remains the same regardless of holidays, studio closure, vacations, illness, etc.
We cannot pro-rate tuition due to absences, but we are happy to schedule a make-up class!
We strongly encourage ACH/auto draft payments, but also accept credit cards. Please keep in mind, credit card payments will include a small service fee.
Any questions regarding payment should be sent to [email protected]; instructors do not have access to payment info and cannot answer specific questions or take payments.
Please do not mail payment. ACH drafts and credit card payments are the only acceptable forms of payment.
All accounts should be paid in full (including any fees) by the 10th of the final month in order for students to participate in end of year activities. SESD reserves the right to prohibit students to participate in end of year activities (productions, graduations, etc.) if account balances are not paid in full.
What does my monthly payment include?
August-December payments will include monthly tuition as well as costume and showcase fees. Costume and showcase fees will be equally divided and applied to each dancer’s August-December monthly fees.
January-April payments only include tuition.
Due to the early Showcase date, we collect May tuition with January-April payments. We DO have classes during the month of May; however, collecting May’s tuition along with January-April payments eliminates the stress of remembering to pay May tuition, and allows all our parents and staff to focus on making Showtime perfect for our students!
***At the time of registration, you will receive an email from [email protected] confirming BOTH amounts. Be sure you receive it and if you don’t, email us ASAP.
Tuition, Registration, Showcase, and Costume fees are non-refundable.
Credit Card Payments:
Invoices are sent at the beginning of the month, due by the 10th of that month.
Credit card payments will include a small service fee.
Credit card payments are considered “late” after the 10th, at which point a $15 late fee will be applied to your invoice.
ACH Withdrawal Information:
We strongly encourage signing up for ACH drafts!
***Please note: Our corporate name is “Creative N’rgy, INC.” (Creative N’rgy DBA SESD). This is what will show up on your bank statement–NOT Southeast School of Dance***
ACH withdrawals are scheduled for the 5th of each month. If the 5th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, withdrawals will be taken out the following Monday.
ACH drafts need to be scheduled 5 days in advance. If you need to make any changes to your dancers enrollment, classes, etc. SESD needs to be notified by the 31st of the month prior to the month to which the changes need to be applied.
