Policies

Annual Registration Fee of $35 (non-refundable) per child or $45 per family must be paid before the 1st class. The registration fee is waived if registration in the amount of the first month tuition is received by August 1st.

LaVida Dance Studio's Season is like a school year. We guarantee at least 38 classes during the season. Some weeks may have 2 or 5 classes, but the monthly fee will stay the same. Monthly fees are automatically charged to your credit card on the first of each month during the season (10 monthly payments of the current season September through June - or until you tell us to stop). ANYONE PARTICIPATING IN THE MAY ANNUAL SHOW MUST PAY FULL TUITION FOR THE MONTH OF MAY.

Tuition Payment:

Automatic Monthly Payment - your MasterCard, Visa, Discover or Debit card will automatically charge your monthly tuition amount every 1st of the month. Forget waiting in long office lines and make sure you never get a late fee!

Monthly Payments - pay with a credit card, check or cash by 1st of the month. The payments may be made at the office, by mail or online (credit cards only). You will not receive a bill prior to the due date of tuition. Late notices will be emailed to all past due accounts. There will be a $10 added charge for any account not paid in full by the 10th. This charge will continue to be added each month it remains late. To pay online with credit card next time log in to My Account and go to "Account Payment".

Dress Code Attire:

LaVida Dance students are required to wear certain brand and color shoes, leotards and tights depending on the classes they are enrolled in. Come up to the Front Desk to be measured and order the attire. After two weeks from the first visit students in appropriate attire only will be allowed to enter classroom. If you have more questions please see FAQ.

NOTE: Hip Hop and Pop Culture classes do not have a specific dress code although we require comfortable, loose and modest attire with dance sneakers or a pair of sneakers used only for dance. Students must bring and change their shoes before they enter the classroom. In the event that students enter dance floor in street shoes, they will be asked to remove them and dance barefoot. Please, help to save our dance floor.

NOT ALLOWED: street shoes, jeans, low cut tops, clothing that exposes belly button or "cheeks", shirts that have profanity or suggestive slogans.
