REGISTRATION

Registration for the 2019-2020 season will open on June 10th for returning students and on June 11th for new students.

How to Register

  • Once registration opens, there will be a link to choose a class
  • This will bring you to a new portal to select classes, create an account, and place a credit card on file
  • More information will be provided once registration is open

PLACEMENT

Class Levels: If your student has dance experience, but you are unsure of his/her level, please refer to the level guide on the Curriculum page. If a teacher determines that a student is in an incorrect level at the start of the term, the dancer may be transferred to the appropriate class at that time. No transfers will take place after the drop date.

Beginner students may register for any age appropriate Beginner (Beg) or Beginner/Intermediate (Beg/Int) class.

TUITION FEES

View our Tuition page for most up-to-date tuition prices and discounts.

Discounts are available for multiple classes taken in similar programs per student.

For Semester enrollments, payments can be made in full or split into four payments. If choosing a payment plan, the initial payment is due upon registration. The following payments will be charged upon the 1st of October, November, and December. 

If your child wishes to ADD or DROP a class after the start of the season, you must notify us via email at W65info@bwydance.com. If no notification is given when dropping classes, YOU WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ENTIRE TUITION PAYMENT.

If you choose to drop a class prior to the October 13th drop date, you are entitled to a pro-rated refund.

No refunds, for any reason, will be given after October 13, 2019 for Semester classes.

Late Fees

If tuition payments are not received by the 15th of the month, a $40 late fee will be added to your account balance.

Payments

All payments will be charged at the time of registration. We accept most major credit cards. If you wish to pay a balance in advance, you may log on to your online account to do so at any time.

We accept Mastercard, Visa, or American Express for online autopay.

Registration Fees

There is a one-time $50 Registration Fee for all NEW students due at the time of registration.

The average class size has 18 students. We must have a minimum of 6 registered students in order to hold a class.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

For the Semester program, classes run from September-January for the Fall session and January-June for the Spring session. To best support your child's training, CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED.

  • Students are allowed a total of 3 absences for the entire season.
  • If more than 3 absences occur during the current semester, you may be asked to withdraw from the program.
  • Absences include school testing, religious commitments, illness, family events, etc.
  • If your child has a planned absence, written documentation must be emailed to W65info@bwydance.com prior to the event.
  • For their safety, your child will not be able to participate in class if they arrive more than 10 minutes late. They must observe the class and take notes. This will be strictly enforced.
  • No refunds will be issued for missed classes for any reason.
  • There are no make-up classes for Semester classes
  • It is imperative to your child’s success that this program is viewed as a serious commitment.

All make-up classes must be scheduled within two weeks of the missed class and be in the same genre and level of dance as the original class. Make-up class availability may be limited due to maximum class capacity.
