1. TUITION There are three (3) payment options:
- (A) Annual tuition paid in full 100%
- (B) Half tuition in two payments 50%
- (C) Four payments 25%
DTL1 – G2: Option A or B – one at the time of registration (prorated if late enrollment) and January 1st. Enrollments after January 1st will be required to pay the remaining annual tuition in full. No option C.
G3 – SS as mentioned above option A, B or C. The annual tuition for Grade 5 is $5616. If you cannot pay this in full, we have a payment plan that helps. With this installment plan, 100% or 50% or 25% is due today for enrollment, and the remainder is split due on the 1st of each month from October to May. Each installment payment contributes to paying off the debt to fulfill the annual tuition in full. If you choose to withdraw from our school, we require a 30 days notice so the teachers can take the appropriate measure for their classes, dances, and choreography. Installment payments are due up until the last day of class for your dancer.
a) Continuing dancers qualify to waive the registration fee if registration is done on or before May 28th, 2022, with no exceptions.
b) Each installment does not pay for any particular month, but rather contributes to the annual tuition. Therefore, holidays/shutdowns, exams/mock exams, picture day, rehearsals, etc., do not affect the installment amount.
c) Rachel’s Ballet will not mail or issue monthly billing statements or reminders. Please mark your calendars to avoid late fees and missing payments.
d) Late Enrollment – Tuition can be prorated for late enrollment and/or dancers can attend make-up classes.
e) A 30-day written notice (email) is required for withdrawal from the Fall-Spring school year. We will not be issuing refunds, so the payments made will be regarded as charitable donations to our school. Our payment method is split into either Pay In Full, 50% installments, or 25% installments. If a student withdraws in December, they would not need to complete the second 50% installment or third and fourth 25% installment since the student has only attended half a year. So it is recommended that the student complete at least half a year before withdrawing.
f) Due to examinations and showcase preparations we are unable to offer refunds after March 1st.
2. ADDITIONAL FEES and PAYMENT INFORMATION
a) All additional fees such as flat fee, registration (if applicable), and Nutcracker (if applicable) are due at the time of enrollment.
b) Flat fee includes RAD exams, showcase tickets, costume fees, and Showcase DVDs. There is no flat fee for conditioning classes. Additional dance forms are $85 for costume only.
c) Registration fee is annual $150 with continuing dancers qualifying to waive the registration fee if done so on or before May 28th, 2022, with no exceptions.

e) Metal Drop Boxes are available outside and inside both locations for your convenience to deposit payments and registration forms.
f) Payment methods: Checks made payable to “Rachel’s Ballet”, cash, auto-pay, or credit card. Please include your dancer’s name in the memo.
g) All payments including those for fees and costumes, are not refundable. The remaining balance for tuition will be refunded excluding the 30 day notice period where the dancer may still attend classes.
h) A $45 fee will be assessed to the student’s account for each returned check.
