Standard Procedures

Automatic Enrollment

Tuition Payment

We ask that all families keep a current credit card on file. If tuition is not received by first day of class each Quarter or Semester, The School of Performing Arts has your permission to charge your credit/debit card held on file to ensure your student's registration in class. 


There are no refunds, credits or transfers of any fees.

Photography, Risk or Injury, and Lost or Stolen Items

By registering for or participating in any class, program or activity, the student and/or parent/guardian agrees that (a) The School of Performing Arts (“SPA”) may use any photograph or video taken of the student/parent/guardian at SPA or any performance for promotional or news media purposes, (b) he/she acknowledges and assumes any risks of participation in any SPA class, program and activity, (c) SPA, its faculty, employees and volunteers, and any performance space vendor, shall be indemnified, defended, released and held harmless by student and parents/guardians for, against and/or from any expenses, damages, loss, claim, injury or action arising out of or related to, caused by, or suffered by such student while at SPA or participating in any SPA class, program or activity, and (d) SPA is not responsible for any lost, misplaced or stolen items.”

Make-Up Policies


Students are encouraged and expected to attend class regularly. Dance students are entitled to make up missed classes during the current session at an equivalent level or below.  You do not need to schedule these with the Business Office.  Students attend the make-up class and tell the teacher they are making-up.  


Students are encouraged and expected to attend class regularly. Faculty will do their best to accommodate lessons cancelled but are in no way obligated to do so.
Lessons cancelled less than 24 hours in advance WILL NOT be made up. Any lesson cancelled by Faculty will be made-up within the semester.

Open enrollment for music lessons. Students may register at any time.

First Semester: September 4, 2018 – January 19, 2019
Second Semester: January 21, 2019 – May 25, 2019

Inclement Weather Policy

SPA very rarely closes as a result of bad weather or poor driving conditions.  If your child's school or  school district closes due to inclement weather, please check the front page of this website or Facebook for SPA's most up to date information. 

SPA will also send an email to all currently registered student families  if the school will be closed.   As always, you may use your own discretion and make up the class if necessary.
