Fee Payment 

Our dance classes can be paid weekly, monthly or half termly (this does not apply to after school clubs). If parents decide to pay weekly if their child misses a session unfortunately payment is still due for this session. For the first half term when a new student joins the school classes are pay as you go to ensure the child enjoys the session. After the half term the fee for the term will be applied.

All course/class fees including after school clubs must be paid in advance and are non- refundable unless an agreement has been arranged with Lisa from Lisa Hurst Dance.

Fees must be paid within 14 days of receiving the invoice or a £5 late payment charge is incurred to cover administration costs unless a valid reason can be provided.

There are no refunds if a student is absent from class. Students are welcome to make up any missed classes at another venue of their choice.
