TUITION/REGISTRATION: All tuition payments are due at the time of registration. There is a $25 registration fee. For families signing up more than one child, the registration fee will be applied per transaction. If more than one child is registered at once, the registration fee will be paid once. If children are not registered together in a single transaction, the registration fee will be reinstated.
REFUNDS & CREDITS: Once classes are in session, there are NO REFUNDS OF TUITION*, REGISTRATION, UNIFORM OR COSTUME FEES. In the case of a medical emergency, condition or injury that would prevent a student from continuing his or her classes, Dance on the DL reserves the right to treat any tuition reimbursement on a case by case basis.
If cancellations are requested two or more weeks prior to class start, a full refund will be instated. Any cancellations two weeks or less prior to class start will receive a 50% refund. Any cancellation once classes have started are non-refundable.

SCHOOL CLOSINGS/SNOW DAYS: Dance on the DL closely follows the Darien School calendar, however we may at times continue with scheduled classes based on the forecast. We will advise parents of all class cancellations by email. We will also post any class cancellations to our social media channels. Dance on the DL will hold a snow make-up day for each semester. The days and times of these make-up dates will be released upon registration.
