Tuition and Fees
The registration fee is $50 per student/$80 per family, covering the cost of insurance and processing fees for most programs. This fee is a NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENT. All Registration is online, and a current CREDIT CARD MUST BE ON FILE. Swift and easy!
NOTE: FDS must receive a completed registration form, registration fee, and the first month's tuition before your child's enrollment into any of our programs.
Tuition is due by the 1st of each month and considered past due after the 10th. The computer software automatically adds late fees of $30 on accounts that are 10 days late.
FDS runs on a calendar month, which means that the tuition remains the same whether there are 3, 4, or 5 classes in that month.
Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments (September-June) for your convenience, regardless of the number of weeks in a month, missed lessons, school closings, or school vacations.
CURRENT CREDIT CARD MUST BE ON FILE. FDS strongly suggests automatic payments to avoid late fees. We accept most major credit cards for online autopay.
Yearly (September-June) tuition paid in full by September 10th will receive a 10% discount. Please take note - tuition payments are non-refundable.
Students will not be allowed to take class if their account is delinquent for more than 30 days.
If you wish to pay a balance in advance, you may log on to your online account to do so at any time.
10% Discount for additional Siblings/Parents.
To apply the tuition discount for additional Sibling/Parent, the new student must have equal (or fewer classes) per week than the first student.
Trial Class Policy
Are you trying to decide which class to register for? If you are still undecided, we invite you to participate in a trial class! Try a class of your choice for a fee of $30. If you decide to register for that class, your trial fee will be deducted from your tuition!
Please call (650) 965-4135 in advance to schedule your class, and to make sure the class is not at capacity.
Arrive 15 minutes before class to get set up with a front desk staff member.
Online registration is necessary.
No trial classes are permitted for any class that has a waitlist.
There are NO MAKE-UP classes for missed classes. No refunds will be issued for missed classes for any reason. It is imperative to your child's success that this program is viewed as a serious commitment.
Drop Off Class
If your child wishes to DROP a class, 30-Day Written "Drop Notice" is required to drop from our programs. The notice must be received before the 1st of the month prior to the month dropping. Notices received after the 1st week of classes will not be processed until the 1st week of the following month and will take effect the following month. i.e., the client expecting to stop classes in September must give a 30-day drop notice by August 1st to avoid September tuition.
There are no refunds for registration fees, tuition, costume fees, or performance fees FOR ANY REASON.
All payments are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE. There are no tuition reductions for students that go out of town or become ill.
Private Classes need to be prearranged and prepaid at the office in advance. If a dancer fails to come to a scheduled private lesson without calling to cancel, they will need to pay for the class.
Art Classes Materials Fee
A yearly materials fee of $35 per student will be applied upon registration. Temporarily not applicable.
