Our program tuition is a yearly amount. We offer our customers two payment options.
1) Pay in full for the year and receive a 10% discount
2) Take the yearly tuition and divide it into 9 monthly payments. (If you choose this payment option, monthly payments are due on the 1st first of the month. They are considered late after the 10th and a late fee of $10 will be added to your account balance. We strongly encourage our customers to take advantage of our Monthly autodraft. It will save you time and money!
3) Tuition price will vary depending on location
*Please DO NOT send payments with your student's to their school location. Our instructors will not accept any forms of payment. If you chose to pay by check, please mail it to our office.* For South Carolina Students Only!

Please note that we do not prorate for absences. If the dance teacher needs to cancel class for any reason, we will schedule a makeup class or issue a refund. Special cases may be granted if we are informed of absences in advance. Examples of this would be a family traveling abroad for weeks at a time, or a child who has a chronic illness. Temporary sickness, appointments, vacations, etc are not examples of a special case.
You may cancel your membership at any time. Cancellation requests must be made via email and sent to LaceUpStudios@gmail.com. Please do not notify your child’s location or teacher. Our office must be notified as soon as possible in order to prevent future billing.
Lace Up Studios reserves the right to dismiss a child and/or parent from our dance program due to behavior. We want our students and teachers to work and learn in a positive environment.
