Frequently Asked Questions
We understand that choosing a dance studio or childcare facility for your child is a huge decision and you probably have TONS of questions! We get it! Check out these most frequently asked questions, and if you still haven't found the answer you are looking for, simply use the contact us form at the bottom of the page to reach out and we are glad to be at your service!
Why are your prices higher than your competitors?
We seem more expensive at first glance, but we work hard to create ultimate value for our customers! First of all, we have added the convenience of all-inclusive, year-round pricing! We have worked to SIMPlIFY our pricing even further and take out all the frustrating “extra” payments throughout the year. For dance, we've included recital fees and costumes into your monthly tuition (that can run upwards of $200+ per year at other studios, as a separate payment due at the most inconvenient times, i.e. Christmas!). And for our Schools Out Program we include all day care at no additional cost for all those sneaky days that school is closed (i.e. fall and spring break, Presidents Day, etc) Plus, with 25 years of experience, we put our reputation on the line and pride ourselves on our curriculum that focuses on the growth of the whole child, not just the dancer, providing a tremendous return of investment for our families!
What if I want to add-on dance classes or change my class schedule after I have started my membership?
A: If you are upgrading or adding classes to your plan, you will have to pay 50% of the difference between the plans times the number of months you've been on that plan. For example, if you are taking 3 classes and want to add another class to make 4 classes total, you would pay half of $40 (the difference in memberships from 3 classes to 4 classes) TIMES the number of previous months of your current annual contract. This is to cover recital costs). If “downgrading” your plan (taking fewer classes) your new price would simply take effect the following month (no credits OR REFUNDS)..
What if I don’t want to take summer dance classes?
Well, guess what? We don't do them anymore! Instead, we only offer 3-4 day summer camps offered both as daytime (morning) and afternoon/evening options to fit every schedule! The summer is time for excitement, fun, and of course, a little break from the ordinary! That's why at HDA we take a break from the grind of weekly classes and offer our students the opportunity to take themed camps to keep the love of dance alive, while allowing for time to enjoy your summer!
What if I need to take a "break" due to injury, extensive travel, long term illness or some other family emergency?
We now offer the ability to "Pause" your membership!
DANCE/Little Bloomers: Available for up to 2 months per year of your contract (does not have to be consecutive months). To do this, you Must pay 20% of tuition each month of pause. For example, if your tuition is $149/month, you would pay $30/month while on pause to hold your spot & continue paying towards recital fees.
Schools Out Program: Available to pause 2 weeks max ((does not have to be consecutive weeks) To do this, you Must pay 20% of tuition each week of pause.
Pause requests MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THE 24th of the month prior to the month(s) you are wishing to pause. If an emergency, please reach out to us immediately. THE FORM TO PAUSE YOUR MEMBERSHIP IS LOCATED UNDER "FILES" IN YOUR PARENT PORTAL.
Why do you no longer offer trial classes for dance?
One class is not always sufficient to determine your perfect fit at HDA. we want to give each student and family a chance to truly find their place and become integrated into the fabric of our community. We call this our "Happiness Guarantee." If not satisfied after your first month, we offer a 30-day happiness guarantee! If, after attending their first 4 classes, you are not completely happy with the class experience you are welcome to withdraw with nothing further to pay. *Must ATTEND all SCHEDULED & REGISTERED classes during the 30 day time period in order to be eligible for the happiness guarantee.
What does auto-renew mean? What if I want to cancel my membership?
Your membership will AUTOMATICALLY renew at the end of 12 months for a new 12-month contract. If wishing to terminate your membership early, you must fill out a membership termination form (located In your parent portal under files) 30-DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR CONTRACT renewal date. early membership terminations will be subject to A 20% Termination fee based on the total number of unfulfilled months left in your contract.
After I register, how quickly can I get started?
DANCE/LITTLE BLOOMERS: We only accept new students in classes the first week of every month, so if you are registering after the first of the month, your start date will be the beginning of next month. This is to ensure a smooth transition for new students just starting class!
SCHOOLS OUT PROGRAM: We prefer students begin their journey with our after school program on a Monday (or the start of a week) but we can work with our families to start any day of the week if the need is urgent.
