Tuition at Toledo Ballet is based on an 18-week session and is designed to be reasonable and comparable to other dance programs. Toledo Ballet tuition is calculated by hours of instruction time. For all regular classes, there is a .75-hour minimum rate, regardless of class duration. After this minimum is met, tuition is based on total instructional hours per week.
Tuition may be paid in full or in monthly installments. No refunds or credits are provided for classes missed due to holidays, weather cancellations or absences. Failure to fulfill payment contracts will lead to penalties including late fees, exclusion from classes or performances, revocation of scholarship aid, or dismissal from the school. Classes are filled on a first-paid basis. Toledo Ballet reserves the right to cancel any class during the first 3 to 6 weeks of the session if an insufficient number of students register.
A 5% discount is offered to students who register for one or more hours of classes on or before the early registration date. Families with two or more siblings enrolled in classes will receive a 15% discount on the lesser tuition.
The first installment is due at registration and subsequent payments will be automatically withdrawn from a designated account on or near the 15th of each month. There is no processing fee. If you elect self-pay, a $60 handling fee will be added to the first installment of tuition. The $60 handling fee does not apply to Summer tuition. Students on payment plans are expected to fulfill the terms of their payment contract even if they do not attend all of their classes.
In addition to tuition, a session fee of $15 is assessed per semester; this session fee will be drawn at the time of registration. The session fee is assessed only for regular classes; there is no session fee applied to Preschool Dance Enrichment, Dance Camps or Intensives/ Pre Intensives.
The session fee may be waived by making a tax-deductible contribution to Toledo Ballet’s Annual Campaign at the Plié level ($50) or higher.
There will be a 1.5% monthly finance charge on all late payments. Returned checks are subject to a $30 NSF fee.
Tuition is nonrefundable after the second week of classes except if the student permanently leaves the geographical area or if there is a permanent medical reason with a signed physician’s note. Tuition will not be prorated or refunded because of nonmedical absences. Refunds will be assessed a $15 handling fee and prorated for the number of classes attended by the student. No refunds or credits are provided for missed dance classes due to holidays, weather cancellations or absences. There will be no exceptions made to the refund policy.
For students withdrawing from classes (absences do not constitute withdrawal), tuition may be credited against future registration. The student’s family must notify the school in writing to request a credit. Should the student have a temporary medical reason, a credit will be applied to their account for future tuition to be used within one year. No processing fee is assessed on tuition held for credit.
Make up classes MUST be taken at the level at which the dancer is enrolled OR LOWER. This is for the safety of the dancer and no exceptions will be made. All make up classes must be completed before the 18-week session is over. Make up forms are available at the front desk. Students present a make up form to the instructor upon entry into the class.
The cost of a trial class is not refundable but may be applied towards tuition.
