I have registered for dance classes, now what?
You will be contacted via email confirming your child’s placement in the class. The first month’s tuition payment (including any applicable registration fees) will be due on the first day of class. New students who join mid-month will be pro-rated for that month. An annual registration fee of $35 ($50 family) will be added to the first month’s tuition if you are a new customer or an existing customer that has registered after Sept. 1st. Students who are continuing on from our summer session are waived the registration fee. First month’s tuition is payable by cash, check or credit card. After the first month, you may sign up for EFT payment on a monthly basis, or pay 3 months at a time (non-refundable) by cash, check or credit card. Tuition is based on the weekly time each student dances over a 10-month period (September-June), not on individual months. Allowances have been made for holidays in the tuition schedule. If a student misses a class or classes they are welcome to make-up the classes within a 3 month period. No refunds will be given for missed classes. (see tuition chart on our tuition and registration page).
Where and what do I buy for my child to be ready for class?
Please refer to our dance class descriptions page for the uniform associated with your child’s class. All shoes and attire can be purchased at The Leotard in Portland. Ballet and tap shoes can also be purchased at Payless Shoes. Certain chain stores in the area (Fred Meyer, Target, WalMart) also carry leotards and tights in pink and black.
Are there performing opportunities at EDA?
Yes, we have 3 different performing opportunities throughout our season. We have an in-studio holiday-themed recital the week before winter break, and a larger June recital performed at the Camas High School Theater. There is also an opportunity to perform with Vancouver Dance Theatre in their Nutcracker. All rehearsals and auditions will be at Evergreen Dance Academy studios. Please check out their website for audition and show dates.
What if I want to cancel my classes at EDA?
If you are on EFT, a 30-day notice is required to cancel your account. If you are paying 3-months in advance by check, we are sorry but no refunds will be given. Please submit your cancellation in writing to email@example.com.
I paid my registration fee last season, do I have to pay it again?
All existing students can have the annual $30 registration fee waived if they register for fall classes by Sept 1st or if the student was enrolled in our summer session. Otherwise, the $30 registration fee will be billed with first month’s tuition.
