Based on 10 monthly payment plan (September-June) Tuition is calculated on the total number of hours being taken over the entire 10 month schedule. Tuition is drawn from your credit/debit card placed on file upon registering on the 1st of every month (September-June). Each Class will meet 35 times during the year. Holidays, dance studio scheduled closings, and months where there are less than or more than 4 meetings have been taken into account when your equal payment amount is determined. There is NO pro-rating of tuition due to absence, illness, vacations, school events, or holidays. Tuition is non-refundable.
ALL-INCLUSIVE: At NDA we want nothing more than to make life a little easier and stress free for our studio families! We understand that your child may be involved in several activities and it's hard to keep track of it all. This is why we offer all-inclusive tuition each month so that our parents don't have to worry about any extra fees or due dates! Our all-inclusive monthly tuition includes:
Holiday Recital Costume
June Recital Costume
Tuition is due by the 7th of each month. A $20 late fee will be applied to your account if payment is not received by the 7th of each month.
There are no refunds for missed classes. If your child misses a class, he/she can make it up during another class that is similar to the registered class. Make-ups must be done within 30 days of the class missed. Please call first to schedule a make-up class. Please be aware that many classes are working on recital dances during the months of February-June (dances may not be the same as your dancer's). There will be no make-ups after June 1st.

At NDA, we believe that having a dress code gives students a sense of belonging to our family as well as creating an identity for our studio in the greater community.

Safety: With the safety of our families a number one priority, NDA is very serious about upholding Child Protection laws and policies within the studio as well as at public performances and in the online arena (website and social media).
As part of your registration, you will have read and signed a media waiver allowing us to proudly use images and video footage of your student for advertising and promotional purposes. Should you have any concerns whatsoever with signing this declaration, please see Miss Noelle who will happily assist you.
The directors and staff at NDA are educated in the negative impact of inappropriate music and costume selection when it comes to performing dance routines and are wholeheartedly committed to ensuring children in all of our dance routines are not subjected to any inappropriate songs or costuming. We recognise that songs with sexist, explicit, violent, racist, homophobic or criminal content may influence our dancers and/or audience and will strive to avoid using such music. We are committed to restricting costumes that project sexuality, contain explicit graphic or textual content.
Privacy: When you purchase or hire a product or service with NDA, the information we may collect from you includes your name, address, telephone numbers, email addresses, medical information and credit card or bank details. It may also include details of the products and services we provide to you as well as the status of your enrollment. We only collect information directly from our students or their parents/guardians primarily for the purpose of providing services and products to you and to administer and manage invoicing and debt collection. We may occasionally use your information to promote and market to you information which we consider may be of interest to you unless you contact us and tell us not to do so. We will never sell or pass on any of your information to third parties unless required by government authorities or in the event of debt recovery. Any information passed on will be done so with appropriate privacy and confidentiality protection. Information is stored securely in electronic form and is accessible only by authorised personnel.If you would like to know what information we hold about you or wish to update the information, or if you wish to be removed from all further direct marketing communications, please email us at email@example.com.
Parent’s Responsibility to be Aware of Dates and Events: It is the responsibility of the parents to be aware of all dance studio activities, such as recitals, opening or closings, and picture days. The studio notices are posted on the lobby bulletin board, the website, and in the newsletters emailed out weekly. Please notify the front desk in writing if your address, e-mail address, or telephone number has changed.
Levels and Placement: Each student is closely evaluated by the faculty and director. Once the dancers progress beyond the combo classes, students do not move up to the next level according to age or the amount of years that they have studied dance. They must be able to execute proper technique of each movement for that level. It is extremely important that dancers are placed in a level that is appropriate for them, as frustration and even injury may occur.
Attendance: Attendance and participation is imperative for a dance student to progress. Proper technique and dance skills are accomplished through practice and patience. Advancement to the next level may not be possible due to poor attendance. IF a dancer has inconsistent attendance, participation in the recital is solely at the discretion of the teachers and the studio director. No refunds on missed classes nor on costume purchases.
Behavior: Unruly behavior in the classroom will not be tolerated. Dance is a physical activity that requires discipline. Students can easily injure themselves if they do not follow directions or stay focused during class time. If a teacher is having a problem with your child; you will be contacted so that we can hopefully fix the problem together. Safety is our primary concern and one of the many reasons we limit class size.
Anti-Bullying Policy: Prohibition of Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying NDA is committed to a safe and civil educational environment for all students, employees, volunteer and patrons, free from harassment, intimidation or bullying. “Harassment, intimidation or bullying” means any intentional written, verbal, or physical act, when the intentional written, verbal, or physical act:
• Physically harms a student or damages the student’s property; or
• Has the effect of substantially interfering with a student’s education; or
• Is severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment; or
• Has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.
Holidays, Inclement Weather, or Other Cancellations: We do not follow Gloucester County Public School systems holiday closing schedule. Please check our Studio handbook Calendar to review which holidays we are closed. We also do not follow the public schools snow closures. A decision will be made by 8:30 AM for morning classes and by 3:00 PM for evening classes. Closings will be on the studio voicemail, social media and the website. There is one snow cancellation included in the tuition. If an additional class is cancelled, students may attend a similar class for a makeup. Refunds will not be issued due to inclement weather.
Care of Students: Noelle's Dance Academy cannot be responsible for the care of students before or after class. For the children’s safety, we also ask that parents come into the studio to pick them up. We do not allow children to go into the parking lot unaccompanied by an adult. Please arrive promptly at the end of your child’s class. After a 10-minute grace period, a $15 late pickup fee is charged to your account. Parking on the curb is prohibited.
