Arts Together policy in regards to cancelling classes due to snow, ice and inclement weather is that we allow ourselves the ability to cancel one class without needing to reschedule, but if we cancel more than one class, we shall make every effort to make up the missed class.
When you register, you may take care of payment all at once and in advance, or you can pay in monthly installments. If you choose to pay in installments, a deposit of 12% of your total tuition (not including registration fees) will be due at time of registration. The remaining tuition will be collected in installments during months in which the selected class meets. For most classes, this will result in eight additional installments, with each installment charged to your card at the beginning of each month from October-May. For example, should you register for one class with a total tuition of $594 + $40 registration fee, the total amount is $634. This can be paid all at once, of course, but if you prefer to pay in installments, $71.28 will be due at time of registration (this is 12% of the total class tuition of $594). The remaining balance of $562.72 will be then be split into eight installments of $70.34.
Some programs are offered in 8-week sessions. These will be labeled as WORKSHOPS. Tuition for workshops may be paid in total at the time of registration or in installments.
At registration you have to sign up for the entire year. However, our cancellation policy allows you to drop a class with 30 days written notice. If you should find yourself needing to drop a class, or if you are interested in switching your class, contact Stephen Wall, Director of Operations, via email at email@example.com.
Parent Observation week
Parent Observation week at Arts Together gives parents, grandparents and siblings of current students the chance to be inspired by how our children grow and learn. Specific details as to the dates of Parent Observation Week for Fall 2017 will be forthcoming.
Dance Fest is our spring celebration of the growth of our current students. Every May, dance students of all ages spend the last few weeks of class shaping a year’s worth of creative exploration into a short performance piece. Parents, friends and other Arts Together students are invited to a series of casual but impressive performances that showcase the hard work and talent of students of all ages. Dance Fest for 2018 will be held on Sunday, May 20.
COSTUMES FOR DANCE FEST: Certain dance classes (mostly those involving students the age of 14 or under) will have costumes purchased for our end-of-the-year sharing event on May 13: Dance Fest. We have included the cost of your child's costume in the tuition for these classes. There will be no separate costume fee due.
