I have gone back and forth, left and right, up and down on how to update our tuition process and model - making it simpler, more transparent, and ultimately sustainable for our studio in our amazing new space. First, I didn't want to inhibit anyone from taking the maximum number of classes due to costs increasing with each added class. Second, we all need more simplicity in our crazy busy lives, especially when it comes to things we love, like Irish Dancing! Lastly, I want to be ultra-transparent, as being a pharmacist is my job, and being an Irish Dance teacher and studio owner is my love and I do this because I love it, not to make a living. My goal is to make a sustainable studio, in other words, there is enough cash flow in to pay the rent and keep the lights on with any extra going towards things like show costumes, new mirrors, and other fun stuff to enhance the studio and the dancers' experience in it.
With that being said, I am attempting to do just that, simplify and sustain with the following changes in tuition changes beginning in the Fall session on August 10, 2019:
Monthly Membership Style: The structure for tuition will be similar to a gym membership where you pay a flat fee per month and can attend any and all classes offered to you. So, the more classes you attend, the cheaper each class becomes -- hopefully increasing the likelihood of attending more classes which simply means: more practice = better dancing!
No Registration Fees: There will no longer be a family registration fee or any other fees associated with registration or classes.
No More Drop-ins or Make-Ups: No drop-in or make-up classes needed anymore. Simplifying the process of missing or making up a class! You can come to as many classes as are offered to you!’
Here is the unveiling of the flat-fee monthly tuition structure beginning August for the Fall 2019 session:
Mini CAIDos $45/month
Show Squad & Mini Show Squad: Additional $25/month
I have tried my best to create a simpler structure that will hopefully not keep any dancers from being able to come to as many classes as they possibly can without having to fork over mom or dad's arm and leg to do so.
BILLING DATES/TUITION DUE DATES:
To be billed on the 15th of each month beginning August 15th so bill dates include 8/15, 9/15, 10/15, and 11/15 for the Fall session with no "mini" Winter Session this year -- we will be either hosting pop-up dance workshops in December or spending time with family!
METHODS OF PAYMENT ACCEPTED:
Credit Card (except American Express) — For credit cards, you can authorize recurring monthly payments to be charged on the 15th of each month for the four months of the session (so four times total for the session).
Payment is due on or before the 15th of each month.
HOW TO REGISTER FOR CLASSES:
Please email a copy of the above “REGISTRATION FORM” or bring it in to the studio at the time of your first class.
If you have any questions at all regarding classes, registration, or our tuition structure — please email email@example.com
NOTE: If you are registering multiple dancers, please complete a separate registration form for each dancer but you only need to complete one credit card authorization form if all on the same card, to only charge it once.
