Tuition / Payments 

Tuition is to be paid by the 10th of each month.Tuition must be paid by the second class of the month. If a month has 3 full classes - you will be charged for the entire month. Tuition ONLY gets deducted if a student registers at the end of the month. We accept cash, credit card, check, Venmo, and Apple Pay. 


If a dancer has an outstanding balance for 3+ months, the dancer is not allowed back in class. 


**AMDC Teachers & Directors reserve the right to deny or withdraw any student from class/performing; whether it be at recital or competition due to inappropriate behavior, excessive absences, or for non-payment of tuition, costumes, or any other outstanding balance. We understand that some things are uncontrollable and sometimes money can be tight, but PLEASE speak to us about it. We will do anything in our power to help and can set up a payment plan that works for you. 


  • Any person who has an outstanding balance will NOT be allowed to buy/pickup recital tickets until the balance is paid. 

  • Tuition only gets deducted if a student registers at the end of the month.

  • No tuition deduction or refunds if a student misses class/quarantine.

  • No Tuition deduction for holiday vacations.

Out of respect for teachers and other students, attendance is mandatory once your child is registered for class. We understand that some things are uncontrollable and there may be a time when a student is not able to come to class. Please call the studio/email to let the teacher/director know in advance. Respect our time at AMDC and let us know that your child will be absent. 


**However, if a teacher/director feels a student has missed too many classes it may result in your child getting cut from a piece or having a very little part in the routine. Routines are choreographed based on the number of students in class, and teachers cannot wait until the last minute to adjust numbers, especially those going to competitions. 


No Bully Zone

 AMDC will not tolerate bullying in any form; physical, emotional, social or otherwise. As such, we have implemented a Zero Tolerance Bullying Policy. Since our goal is to empower people and embrace individuality, one documented bullying event will have repercussions, which may include immediate termination of enrollment. AMDC recognizes that bullying does not just occur between students. Parents or guardians who witnessed bullying or harassing another student, parent, or AMDC staff member, should speak up immediately. We want to create a positive and safe environment for everyone.
