Dance Policies

A student will not be listed on the class roster until the first monthly payment has been paid-in-full.

Payment must be received on or before the due date.

All accounts that are not current are subject to a late fee of $15.

Tuition for the previous semester must be paid-in-full before a student may register for the next term. 

Richland Academy reserves the right to cancel a class with insufficient enrollment. You will be notified and may transfer to another class or receive a full refund. Your refund check will be mailed approximately 30 days after notification.

Returned checks are subject to a $30 fee plus bank charges.

Delinquent Accounts

If payment on a student account is not current the student will not be permitted to participate in class or performance opportunities.  In the unlikely event that we have to take steps beyond invoicing to collect payments we can hold you responsible for interest at the maximum lawful rate from the due date of payment, cost of collection, and reasonable attorney fees.  You agree to pay these if such steps are necessary, for any and all amounts due.

Costumes

Costumes for dancers are not included in the monthly tuition. Each student who is planning to participate in the May Spring Dance Recital will be required to purchase a costume for each class. Costumes fees vary by class and will be outlined for you at the time of registration. All costumes must be paid in full by December 1, 2016, or a costume will not be ordered. Students, who register after December, 1, 2016, and wish to participate in the recital, will be charged an additional $10 fee cover shipping.
There will be no refunds given once a costume has been ordered. It will be yours to keep.

Withdrawals and Refund

Official withdrawals must be made at the Front Desk. Any refund amount may be applied toward existing or future balances. You may also request a refund, a refund check will be mailed approximately 30 days after the refund request.  If you know you will be absent during the semester, please let us know as soon as possible so your tuition can be adjusted.

Classes: The Academy cannot make up class lessons or refund tuition for classes missed by the student.  Any missed by the teacher will be rescheduled, refunded, or credited to the student's account.

Missed Lessons

Private Lessons: Students must notify the Academy if unable to attend a scheduled lesson:  Before 10:00 AM if the lesson is after 12 noon or before 6:00 PM if the lesson is the next morning.  Call 419/522-8224 to report absences.
To make up a lesson a teacher may extend the length of the preceding or succeeding lessons or schedule another lesson at a mutually convenient time.  If a student misses an appointed make-up time, the lesson will not be rescheduled.

Richland Academy Closing- in case of inclement weather

Notice of Richland Academy closing will be broadcast on local radio and television stations, as well as, our website and Facebook page.

Suspensions

Richland Academy reserves the right to dismiss or suspend a student whose behavior, work or attendance is unsatisfactory (no refund is given).  A student may also be suspended if payment is in arrears.
