Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your list of contacts ASAP to ensure you receive important studio information that will be sent via email after registration. UDA Facebook and Instagram Sites are also used to communicate important information to our dance families. Please take a moment to connect with UDA social media accounts; Utah Dance Artists on Facebook and Instagram.
CREDIT CARD ON ACCOUNT
All accounts must maintain an active credit card on file. Cards on file will be charged on the first business day of each month for account balances owed. Cards on file will not be charged if the account balance is paid prior to the first day of the month via cash or check.
FEES DUE UPON REGISTRATION

- One Month Tuition Installment: Covers ½ August and ½ June monthly tuition
- Non-Refundable Deposit: Accounts committed to a nine ½ month enrollment will not be charged June tuition. Accounts that drop classes or enrollment prior to June 2020 will not be refunded the ½ June tuition paid.
- *No registration fees apply to Mini-Sessions.
This year UDA families will be extended the freedom to transition between studio and live broadcast dance classes based on individual preferences and circumstances due to COVID – 19 risk levels. While this service is provided at no additional cost to families, UDA tuition will remain the same, even during transitional phases.
NSF returns on credit card charges or paper checks will immediately incur an $15 NSF fee and due with the following months tuition balance.
Late accounts will receive a notice via email and a seven-day grace period prior to being charged a late fee. If the account is not brought to a zero balance after seven days, a $20 late fee or 5% finance charge (whichever is greater) will be assessed and the service of dance classes will be discontinued until the account balance is paid in full. Accounts that carry a balance 60 days past due will be inactivated and sent to collections.

ADDITIONAL STUDIO POLICIES
Studio Withdrawal: To withdrawal a dancer from a class or enrollment altogether, an email request must be sent to email@example.com by the 25th of the month in order for tuition to not be charged the following month. Tuition refunds will not be given after tuition is paid. Families may withdraw from classes or from the studio at any time during the dance year. *yet should be mindful of non-refundable tuition and fees.
Late Pick-up Fee: If a dancer is not picked up within 15 minutes of their last class, a $15 late pick up fee will be assessed followed by an additional $5 for every 5 minutes after. Since UDA’s lobby will remain closed during Utah’s Orange and Yellow Risk Levels, it will be critical to uphold this policy to maintain the safety of our dancers.
Privacy and Confidentiality: Each account must list one parent or legal guardian over the age of 18 as the financial responsible party and primary contact for all student communication. The studio will not release payment history, attendance records or other student information to a third party without permission from the responsible party.
Dress Code: Proper hair and dress code is a pre-requisite for dancers to attend dance class(es) and expected to be upheld and supported by the account holders.
Rescheduling, Modifying and Canceling Classes: UDA reserves the right to reschedule, modify or cancel dance classes and/or replace the teacher as the studio may deem necessary. UDA also reserves the right to deliver dance classes through an online platform in the event they cannot be conducted live for any reason, but not limited to: inclement weather, teacher absence or COVID–19 government advisory.
