TUITION & REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Classes run continuously from September through June (with the exception of spring and winter breaks) unless designated otherwise. Tuition is based on a 38 week school year and is invoiced in 4 installments or sessions. Each session represents one quarter of the school year and is not considered an individual course (each session does not always equal 10 classes). Tuition is based on the number of class hours a student takes per week and can be calculated by using our Tuition Chart. The figures on the tuition chart are for one session of classes. A full year tuition would be paid 4 times from Sept to June based on the below dates for the 2018-2019 Season:
Session 1: September 4th to November 4th
Session 2: November 5th to January 20th
Session 3: January 21st to March 31st
Session 4: April 1st to June 9th
Wayne Ballet uses a totally online system for registration, class selection, and tuition payments called the Parent Portal. You can access the Portal here:
If you complete the registration process in person instead, your information will still be added to the Portal and a link for access will be emailed to you. Paper registration forms are available at the studio reception desk
.A Registration Fee of $35 per student or $50 per family (two or more students) is applicable to each season and is due at the time of enrollment in addition to tuition. We accept registrations throughout the year for most classes, so it is possible to enroll at any time throughout the year and tuition can be pro-rated accordingly. (Students who enroll during the fourth session may not have the privilege of participating in the year-end showcase if choreography has already begun). We recommend registering in advance before joining the Pre School and Pre Ballet level classes, as they tend to fill up quickly. Students must be fully potty-trained in order to begin Pre School classes at Wayne Ballet.
Tuition is due 2 weeks prior to the start of the new session. You will receive an email with the invoice and due date for each session. Tuition is due regardless of whether you have received an invoice so please remember to check the website calendar and bulletin board for due dates. If you enroll in AutoPay through the Parent Portal we will automatically bill your credit card when the next session payment is due. We strongly recommend enrolling in AutoPay to avoid late fees. Wayne Ballet’s primary means of communication is through email so be sure to provide your current email when completing registration and be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe senders list. Wayne Ballet will bill each session the same as the previous, unless notified otherwise. Please note that it is your responsibility to notify Wayne Ballet if you choose to drop a class. Bi-weekly late fees of $25 will continue to accrue until your account balance is paid. If you are enrolled in AutoPay please be sure to update your account if you receive a new card.
Tuition payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. However, we do have a flexible policy for the youngest students who are eager to dance but who may not be quite ready for a class environment. If this is the case we will apply the balance to a future session up to one year from initial date of registration. Sometimes just a few months can make a big difference.
Monthly payment plans are available under certain circumstance. Please contact our office for more information. In the case of monthly payment plans tuition is calculated using the same scale and cannot be pro-rated once a session has begun.
All tuition checks should be made payable to: Wayne Ballet & Center For Dance Arts or WBCDA. There will be a $25 charge for all returned checks.
Private or semi-private classes in all disciplines are available in certain circumstances. Please call the studio at (610) 688 3904 for information and prices.
Summer Session is separate from our regular yearly tuition and prices may be different. A separate registration fee will apply for summer sessions, workshops, and intensives.
