Please read both the general policies and the policies specific to the type of class your child will be taking (click on one of the buttons below to find out more), before enrolling your child in any ArtWorks Academy classes. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.



Tuition is based on  the  total  amount  of  hours  each  student  is  enrolled  in per week. Tuition is charged monthly (September-May for DANCE and ART and September-June for THEATRE), however a 5% discount will be granted if tuition is paid in full at the beginning of each semester. Tuition is due the first week of the month and is considered late if not received by the 7th of the month. A $25 late fee will be applied for late tuition.  Families with two or more children enrolled receive 10% off of each student's tuition.  Tuition payments and enrollment fees are non-refundable.

$25/lesson or $85.00/month


Semi-Private Lesson

(duet or trio)


$20/lesson or $60/month

(per student)



Please Note:  If a student misses a private lesson, the teacher will make up ONE lesson per year.  If the teacher misses a lesson due to illness, vacation, etc., that lesson will always be made up.  Any student absences beyond one absence will not be made up.  You cannot skip a month of lessons and not pay.  Your payment is holding your child’s spot.  We have a waiting list for lessons and every lesson, whether or not your child is present, must be paid for.



Enrollment Fee


Each student enrolling in classes at ArtWorks Academy will be charged an annual $25.00 enrollment fee.  This fee is non-refundable and must be paid at the time of enrollment.  Families enrolling two or more students will pay a $35.00 annual enrollment fee.



Attendance Policy


To truly benefit from visual and performing arts instruction attendance is essential. Roll is taken each class period, so please call the office when absences are necessary. In case of inclement weather, please watch local television stations, check the website, or call the studio (397-1824) for ArtWorks Academy closings. No deductions or refunds will be given for student absences. Missed classes due to illness or other circumstances, however, may be made up in a comparable class approved by the instructor.



Class Changes/Withdrawals


All class changes must be handled through the office and approved by the instructor. If you decide to withdraw completely from ArtWorks Academy, a withdrawal form must be completed and filed with the office 10 days before the first of the month. If you fail to fill out a withdrawal form, your account will continue to accrue charges for tuition and fees until the end of the session. You are liable for all tuition and fees.


If you are set up on autopay, your bank account/credit card will be charged until you have completed a withdrawal form. Again, all payments are NON-REFUNDABLE.



Classrom Etiquette


Please  arrive  at  least  five  minutes  before  your class begins. Be ready to dance/rehearse when the teacher calls you to class (clothes changed, shoes on, etc).  Please do not arrive any earlier than ten minutes prior to your class time.


Come prepared; bring all shoes, notebooks, scripts, and pencils that you will need for the class.


If you leave things in the lobby during class, please keep them in a bag and place them against the wall.

If you are more than 10 minutes late to a dance class and have missed the warm-up, you may not be allowed to dance. You will, however, be required to watch the class. This is for the dancer’s safety. Injuries are more likely to happen when a dancer is not properly warmed up.


Please pick up all of your trash at the end of class.


If  students are  waiting on  a ride they  MUST remain in the  lobby  area,  not outside.  It is important that we stick to our schedule by starting classes on time. We ask that you help us to achieve this by picking up your children in a timely manner. This will allow us to begin subsequent classes on time rather than supervising students who are waiting on rides. All students should be picked up no later than five minutes after their class ends. There will be a $5.00 fee charged to your account for every 15 minutes you are late picking up your child.  


Class Viewing


Parents  and  siblings  are  asked  to  wait  in  our lobby.  We  find  students  do  much  better  with  minimal  distraction and without family members watching them rehearse. You are welcome to bring your laptop and take advantage of the wireless internet connection at our facility. However, you do not need to feel obligated to stay during your child’s class. Please feel free to leave and run errands or have some nice quiet time to yourself!


Each fall semester ArtWorks Academy has a Parent Watch Week for our dance classes. Parents and siblings are welcome to watch our classes during this time. This is an excellent time to view your child's progress.


2020-2021 Parent Watch Week

December 14-19, 2020*


Classes will be conducted as usual during Parent Watch Weeks, so please be courteous of the students and other observers by turning off all cell phones and limiting conversation only to the lobby. Thank you! 


*Parent Watch Week will only happen if we feel we can safely social distance (if we are still in the middle of a pandemic at that time)



As stated at the top of this page, please also read the policies specific to the type of class your child will be taking. The links to those policies are at the top of this page.
