Semester Deposit: When you register, you will be charged a $100 deposit (to hold your spot). The balance will be charged the first week of the new semester.
Summer Deposit: A non-refundable $100 deposit/week will be charged at the time of registration. The balance will be charged on June 1st. If you are registering after June 1st, the full payment for the summer program will be charged at the time of registration. Summer program fees are non-refundable. Please visit our summer program page for more fee and program information.
Sibling Discount: Sibling discount of 5% is offered for the second child and subsequent children from the same family.
Multiple Class Discount: There is a 20% discount for the second and third weekly class taken by a single student in the same semester (not applicable in the Summer Program). There is a 25% discount for the 4th (+) weekly class. Fees for Technique are already discounted in the list above, since it is a second weekly class for any student enrolled.
Registration Fee: There is a one-time $25 registration fee per student, applicable only in the first semester at Downtown Dance Factory.
Payment Methods: Fees can be paid by credit card (Amex, Visa or Mastercard) when registering online or by check made out to “Downtown Dance Factory, LLC”. In the case of payment by check, please fill out the online form (as of June 12th), leave payment information blank and indicate in the comments field that you will pay by check. Checks should be mailed to Downtown Dance Factory 291 Broadway, 5th Floor, NY, NY 10007.
Uniform Policy: all dance classes have a uniform requirement. Click here for uniform and pricing information.
Recital Policy: if you are registering for the winter/spring semester, your child will perform in Downtown Dance Factory's end of year dance recital (TutuTots & TADA! students excluded). There will be an additional recital costume fee charged along with your winter/spring 2014 tuition, unless you specify, by Friday February 14th 2014 that your child will not participate. Please visit our recital page for more information.
Trial Class Policy: Children can do a trial class before registering, however a position cannot be reserved in any class based on a trial request alone. If the class becomes fully registered by the time the trial is scheduled to take place, your child will need to try/enroll in a different time/class.
Refunds: We regret that refunds can only be given before the 3rd scheduled class. In this case, only the classes that have been held up to that date, along with a $25 cancellation fee will be charged. We do not provide refunds for uniforms once they have been worn. During the winter/spring semester, recital costume fee refunds will be given on withdrawals made before February 14th.
Class Cancellations: Downtown Dance Factory reserves the right to cancel a class as a result of insufficient registration. A full refund, including registration fee where applicable, will be provided in this case.
Uniforms: Uniform requirements, as set out on our uniform page, must be followed. Hair should be pulled neatly off the face for class at all times.
Make-up Classes: Downtown Dance Factory allows two (2) make-up classes per semester. Please let us know before your child will miss class, and call or email to discuss and schedule a make-up in an appropriate class. We will do our best to accommodate you. Make-ups MUST be taken in the same semester as the missed classes. In the winter/spring semester, make ups must be scheduled before April 30th in order to avoid disrupting recital preparation. There are no make up classes for the Summer Program.
Waiting List: If you have signed up for a class' waiting list, we will contact you if a spot becomes available. You will not be charged until we've checked with you to ensure you are still interested in the spot. In the meatime, feel free to register for a different class; we will happily transfer you to the class for which you're waitlisted if a spot does become available.
Arrival for Class: We would appreciate your respecting your teacher and your fellow students by arriving punctually for class each week. Also, students should arrive no more than 5-10 minutes prior to the scheduled time for their class to avoid congestion in the common area.
Dismissal: After class, students will be released to waiting parents/caregivers in the common area. Please make sure to arrive back at our studio in time for the end of your child's class.
Class Viewing: Please note that apart from the TutuTots classes (in which parents/caregivers are participants), we regret that Downtown Dance Factory is not set up for class viewing. A demonstration class at the end of the fall semester and a recital at the end of the winter/spring semester will provide an opportunity to see all we've been learning.
