2020-2021 Registration, Tuition & Fees
Online Registration Information
Halestone’s online registration is through our online system with DanceStudio-Pro.
After creating an account you will see which classes you/your child can take at Halestone. (To view a full schedule of all classes visit this page.) Make sure you enter your/your child’s date of birth accurately into the online system, otherwise you will be unable to register for appropriate classes.
If you are having trouble registering your child for a class you believe they belong in, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When possible we would like our returning students to be able to continue with the instructors they know already. If our classes have shifted and you can’t find a class that you are looking for, please contact us!
Tuition and Calendar
For 2020-2021 Halestone’s classes will run from August 31st through May 22nd, for a total of 36 weeks of class. The hourly length of each class determines the cost of the class for the year’s program. Tuition listed in our online system is the amount due on the 1st of each month from September to May, resulting in 9 equal installments. Tuition for classes that enroll quarterly are due by the first week of the quarter. In 2020-2021 only our Saturday classes will be offered quarterly.
Halestone Dance Studio is committed to ensuring that anybody and everybody can dance. Contact Halestone to inquire about scholarship opportunities. Click here to download the PDF: Halestone Scholarship Application 2020-2021
A registration fee of $25 for the first dancer and $5 for each additional dancer per family offsets the cost of managing your account.
Our Saturday morning classes will now have a drop-in option. The drop-in fee is $15 per class. Students dropping in do not owe a registration fee. If you drop-in to a Saturday class once and then decide to register for the entire quarter your $15 drop-in fee will be counted towards your registration fee. For classes without a drop-in option students may come to any class once to try it for free before committing to the year. (Students who have never taken class at Halestone before can try Saturday classes for free once).
This year we are implementing a sibling discount. One student pays full price. Each additional sibling receives a 5% discount, equal or lesser value. If you have multiple children enrolling in dance class please contact us before you pay so we can implement the sibling discount and let you know your new balance. The system will not add the sibling discount automatically.
Spring Concert & Recital Fees
It is expected that all classes (except our Saturday classes) will participate in our spring concert. If you do not want your student to participate in our spring concert you must inform the director by emailing email@example.com by October 31st. (Students in our Saturday classes can opt into concert participation.)
There is a $75 recital fee for each student participating in the concert which covers the dancer’s first costume and is due December 15th. This fee has a total value of $115 and includes: the dancer’s first costume; a recital pass for the dancer that will act as their ticket to the show when they are not performing; 2 tickets to the show for others; and a link to select pictures from the concert. For dancers in more than one piece in the concert, additional costume fees are announced in February.
Tuition installments are due on the 1st of each month. Installments made after the 10th of each month will incur a $10 late fee.
Paying Tuition and Online Registration Confirmation
After creating an account with DanceStudio-Pro and registering for classes you can choose to pay your tuition online or in person through cash, check or card. The default will be to pay your child’s tuition in 9 equal installments. If you would like to pay for the year or by semester please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure this is accurately represented in our system.
Online payments: Online payments have a 2.75% processing fee added to offset the cost of the processing fees charged to Halestone. For example, if the charge is $100.00 then the system will charge you $102.75. This fee is to off-set the cost of using credit card processing.
Auto-Pay: We offer an Auto-Pay option, which you can opt-into when you register for classes online. This option will allow Halestone to automatically charge your card each month on the 25th of the month for tuition due on the 1st. Auto-pay is offered through a secure online payment processing system. If you register for Auto-Pay you are consenting to allow Halestone to charge your card each month.
There is 2.75% processing fee associated with recurring payments made by through Auto-Pay (see above).
To avoid confusion we do not email statements to parents that register for Auto-Pay.
Withdrawals & Cancellation
The ability to run our classes is contingent on the number of students in the class. For all of our yearly classes, we assume that students will take class for the entire year. Students who need to drop a class for any reason must email email@example.com one month in advance and will be charged tuition for their last month. (Exceptional circumstances will be considered.)
Tuition is non-refundable and refunds will not be given for classes missed due to illness, family trips, inclement weather, etc. Halestone reserves the right to cancel classes due to low registration. In the unlikely event that a class is cancelled, every effort will be made to switch the student to an appropriate alternative class. If this is not possible, tuition will be refunded.
