LaVida Dance Studio's Season is like a school year. We guarantee at least 46 classes during the yearly season. Some months may have 2 or 5 weeks worth of classes, but the monthly fee will stay the same. Monthly fees are automatically charged to your credit or debit card on the first of each month during the season (12 monthly payments of the current season July through June - or until you tell us to stop). ANYONE PARTICIPATING IN THE ANNUAL SHOW MUST BE CURRENTLY ENROLLED.

Tuition Payment:

Automatic Monthly Payment - your MasterCard, Visa, Discover or Debit card will automatically be charged on the 1st of each month. Forget having to remember to pay online or wait in lined to avoid having to pay a late fee!

Monthly Payments - we offer the option of paying in the studio via credit/debit card, check, or cash by the 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 uniform determined and ordered through LaVida Dance Studio. A member of our wonderful staff will be available at the front desk to measure and order the attire your child needs. 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 required dance sneakers or a pair of sneakers used only for dance, and comfortable, loose, modest attire. 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 us keep our dance floor high quality.

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

LaVida Studio will not have classes during the following holiday breaks: Thanksgiving Weekend and Winter Break, Memorial Weekend, Independence Day Weekend.

Inclement Weather

In case of inclement weather, we operate on the Lake Washington School District policy. If Lake Washington Schools are closed due to inclement weather, the studio will be closed as well, unless we inform otherwise. Due to scheduling constraints, we are unable to reschedule entire classes. However students may attend an appropriate class at their convenience in order to make up for class missed due to closure. Make-ups are available until April 1st, due to annual show rehearsals. We do not refund or pro-rate tuition due to inclement weather closings. We do include few days in the yearly schedule to cover for any closures and cancellations.

Make-up Policy

We understand that our students will have times where they are out of town, sick, or busy with a previous arrangement and as such we allow for currently enrolled students to take make-up classes for any they miss.

Make-ups may be used within 3 months of the missed class. If you have missed the 3 month window, you will be given another chance at the end of the Dance Season year during our make-up week.

To take advantage of our make-up policy please look at our schedule of currently available classes, choose one that works for you, and email us ( or use Contact Us form prior to the class with your child's name and the class you selected for the make-up.

Make-ups are only allowed for students who are currently enrolled. Anyone who is un-enrolled will not be allowed to take make-ups. Make-ups are only valid during the current yearly season and do not carry over to the next one. There will be no refunds or deductions for classes missed.

Withdrawal policy for youth and performance teams:

Throughout any time of the year you may drop one or all of your classes and end your automatic payment by notifying in writing at by the 15h of the previous month.
