• A $15.00 late fee will be applied to each account that is past due after the 10th of each month. 

  • A $30.00 fee will be applied for returned checks.

  • Payments can be made by cash, check, and charge as forms of payment (we cannot accept payments over the phone)

  • Refunds are given at the discretion of the Studio Director.

  • Tuition is due in full every month regardless of class attendance and is not prorated for reasons such as illness, vacations, or weather.

Any class not meeting the minimum quota of 5 students will be cancelled, shortened, rescheduled to combine with another class, or shared an increased tuition to offset the expense of low enrollment. There will be no class changes after November 1st.

When a student will no longer be attending classes, it is the parent's responsibility to officially withdraw the child from class by filling out a withdrawal form at the studio in person. Until the dancer is officially withdrawn, we will consider the student to be active in the dance program. The parent will continue to be financially responsible for the tuition up until the exact date that Bartelt Dancers receives the withdrawal form.


Our end of the year recital is planned for Saturday, May 23rd, 2020. Dress rehearsals are planned for May 18th, 21st, and 22nd. 

Recital costume fees are due by November 1st and are non-refundable. Youth costumes (10 years and younger) are $72.56 ($67.50 + tax) each and adult costumes (11 years and older) are $84.39 ($78.50 + tax) each. Costumes will not be ordered unless they are paid in full. Late payment on costume fees will require additional shipping costs and will only be ordered if delivery prior to our recital is guaranteed. When your tuition is paid in full, recital costumes will be sent home.

There is a recital fee of $78.00 per family due March 1st which covers two tickets, rental of the theater, video link and production costs.
