Class Placement Policy
Placement depends on several factors including age, physical strength and development. After the first few classes, if a student needs to be moved to different class level, it will be at the teacher’s discretion and will be discussed with the parents. 


Tuition Policy

Monthly tuition is the same every month for convenience purposes whether it is a short or long month - we have calculated the cost for the Fall/Spring Season and divided into nine equal payments.  August is the only month that we prorate.   All dancers are welcome to make-up missed classes at their convenience - contact us for appropriate make up classes.  All tuition is due on the 1st and is late after the 10th.  All dance families are encouraged to place credit card on file at the time of registration.  We us a convenient, safe auto-pay system that runs the 1st of each month.  If you refer new students to Crescendo Conservatory you will be a $10.00 credit. 


All tuition is not refundable.
If a student misses a class, make up classes are recommended.
Crescendo Conservatory will not send out monthly bills.
•    All tuition is due on the 1st of the month and is late after the 10th. After the 10th a $10.00 late fee will be added to the account.
•  All returned checks will be assessed a $20 fee.
Dropping a Class
•  Please notify Crescendo Conservatory if it is necessary to drop class. The responsible party still will be obligated to pay the tuition for the dropped class/classes and any and all fees for that month.  You must notify us at least one week prior to the first of the month if you are on autopay.
•     Regardless of whether a student is attending class/classes, the studio will continue to charge the account for any and all fees until the office has been notified of the change.  Once tuition is paid,there will be no refunds or pro-rating for student withdrawals.  
Make-Up Policies
•  Missed classes cannot be made up unless tuition is paid in full. Make-up classes are only available to currently enrolled students. You cannot make-up a class once you drop.
•  Make-up classes should be taken within 30 days of the absence.  Make-up classes can be taken in a class of equal level or lower.  Dancers cannot make up in a higher level class. 
•  We do not carry over make-ups from the school year into the summer session, and vice-versa.
•  Make-up classes are available for unavoidable absences (illness, injury, family emergencies), and for weather closings.  
•  A student may only make-up once class a month with a maximum of 5 per year.

Inclement Weather
Crescendo Conservatory will announce closings due to inclement weather via email, on our Website and on our social media. We will follow the Blue Valley school district  and Olathe School Districts for closings/delays in most instances. Classes cancelled due to inclement weather will not be refunded or rescheduled. Students who have to miss class for inclement weather are encouraged to schedule a make up class.
