Payment Policies

·      When you register you sign up for automatic payments.  You acknowledge: 

• I understand that the registration fee is NON-REFUNDABLE and due at the time of enrollment.
• I understand that if my tuition does not process automatically on the 1st of the month due to NSF or Invalid account or any other reason, my account will be charged a $5 fee in order to reprocess payment.
• I understand that tuition will be automatically charged on the 1st of every month. If for any reason, your card/e-check does not process by the 7th of the month, a $10 late fee will be added. Remember that it is your responsibility to update your card information when needed. IF you do not want your card charged--please let Raquel Lake know in writing. 
• I understand that if a charge gets returned, for any reason that is not fault of Lake Dance Steps, a $25 return fee will be charged to your account.
• I understand that the Lake Dance Steps will provide communication through the following methods...Newsletters, Website, Facebook, Instagram, Texts (on rare occasions) and Postings at the studio. 
• I understand that attendance is very important. Recital months, if your child is absent a day in which choreography is being taught, you might be required to book a private lesson. This will enable your child to get caught up on what he/she missed. If your child has too many absences during these months, it can be at the teacher's discretion to pull them from the recital dance without refund.
