    * * We do not follow the Pickerington School District calendar and therefore will have class on days the School District is closed.

       * * We reserve the right to cancel a class if less than 4 students are registered in that class.  Students will be asked to move to a different class.

Fall Attendance

If your child misses 6 dance classes, they will not be permitted to perform in the Recital.  Please pick your child up on time. 

Fall Tuition

Monthly tuition covers FOUR WEEKS; every 5th week a Monthly payment is due. 

      Please write the Month you are paying for on the memo line of your check. 

      If you're paying by credit/debit card, your payment will post on Sunday of the week your payment is due.

Deposit your payment into the interior or exterior studio mail box.  Or mail it to P.O. Box 429.

Please include a late charge of $5.00  if your tuition is paid 3 weeks late.

There will be a $20.00 charge for returned checks.

We offer a 5% discount if the 9 monthly payments are paid in full, payment due in August.  Be advised that there is NO refund if your child quits Pickerington Dance Academy


Students that are disruptive in class will not be allowed to participate and will be escorted to the waiting room.

Make-up Classes

If a student has been absent the teacher will work with them in class to get them caught-up.   If a parent requests a make-up class, there will be a charge.

Snow Policy

It will be your responsibility to call the Studio a few hours before your child’s dance class to see if the Studio is open.  If the answering machine does not say the “Studio Is Closed”, then there will be classes.  If you choose for your child not to attend, there will be no make-up lesson or reduction to your monthly payment.  If a class is cancelled twice, one of those days will be rescheduled.

Costume & Recital Fee

Partial payments toward your child's Costume can be made anytime, but are not required. The total amount due for the costume is due by the 1st week in December.  You will receive an email in late November showing your costume amount due.  We do not sell Tickets to our Spring Recital, instead a Recital fee is charged to cover you, your family and guests.

Dance Attire & Shoes & Hair
