Attendance Policy

Draper Center StudentsConsistent attendance is critical for consistent progress. The parent or guardian of the dancer must report all absences to the Draper Center office prior to class time. Classes must be made up within the quarter they are missed. It is essential that students come on time. A late arrival does not allow a student sufficient time for warm-up and therefore may be the cause of injuries. Additionally, late arrival disrupts class concentration. Students more then ten minutes late to class may be asked to sit and observe. Draper Center reserves the right to cancel any class of less than six students.

Requesting Time Off

We understand there will be instances when a student must take time off. The parent or guardian of the student must complete and sumbit a "Time Off Request Form" to the Draper Center office 2-weeks prior to the time they are requesting their dancer to take off. Forms are available in the Draper Center office or you can download the form here: Time Off Request Form.

Cameras

Please note that recording classes, dance demonstrations, or performances IN ANY WAY, including tape recorders, cameras, or video recorders is prohibited.Demonstration DVD’s will be available for purchase at the end of the school year.

Late Fee Policy

There will be a late charge of $25 for each payment on all accounts that are past due. There is a five (5) day grace period for those on the monthly payment plan and a ten (10) day grace period for those on a quarterly payment plan. Once the grace period has ended you are responsible for paying the tuition and the late fee. Accounts that are more than 90 days past due may be turned over to a collection agency and the student will no longer be allowed to attend class.

Automatic Payment Plan

For your convenience, an automatic payment option is available to those who authorize the Draper Center for Dance Education to automatically charge their VISA, MasterCard, or Discover Card. Automatic payments will be processed on the tuition due dates and notification will be received that that transaction was processed. In the event that the transaction is declined for any reason, the responsible party will be notified and expected to follow the tuition schedule in order to avoid the $25 late fee. Authorization is necessary for each session that the student returns to our school in order to remain on the automatic payment plan.

Refund Policy

Registration fees are non-refundable under any circumstances. Tuition fees are non-refundable except in the event of serious injury or illness, in which case the student must provide written documentation from the doctor.  In these cases, credit may be extended for future classes or a refund granted.  Requests for refunds must be in writing and accompanied by a physician’s certificate stating inability to continue class. Refunds will be pro-rated on a weekly basis. Class schedules and faculty are subject to change.
