Launch Phase

Launch Phase

The policies and procedures on this page have been created as a starting point. As we launch our studio, we recognize that policies and procedures will need to adapt over time based on our customers’ needs. If you have any specific suggestions or requests, please do not hesitate to let us know so we can continue to grow. Thanks ahead of time for your patience and support!

Group Classes and Private Lessons

Duration
Group classes run semester long and are charged every four weeks. Private lessons can range from 30-55 minute sessions each week. Email us to schedule private lessons: info@worldupsidedown.org

Price and Payments
Group classes average $70 per class (four 55-minute sessions), and private lessons vary in price depending on the teacher. Payments for private lessons and group classes must be paid monthly for a total of four weekly sessions. Monthly payments are due on the first Friday and may be pro-rated if students start before a new class begins.

If you would like to avoid the 3% transaction fee, you can set up Zelle payments with our team.

Dance shoes and apparel is not included with tuition. Contact our dance teacher Sara St. Clair with Twice Upon a TuTu for affordable dance apparel options.

Kid Care

We can provide kid care for children ages 1-5 for adults who sign up for a class. Just pay an additional $15 per child to get kid care for all four sessions. We do not offer child care on-demand so try to register a week in advance to be sure we can meet your child care needs.

After School

Duration
Full-time after school runs Mon-Fri from 3:00pm-6:00pm. Early arrival is permitted. Part-time after school runs from 3:00 pm-6:00pm for two days a week (your choice of Mon, Tues, Wed, or Thurs).

Price and Payments
Full-time tuition is $429 per month and can be paid monthly or bi-weekly. Monthly payments are due on the first Friday. Bi-weekly payments are due the 1st and 3rd Fridays. Part-time tuition is $209 per month and must be paid monthly. Monthly payments are due on the first Friday and may be pro-rated if students start before a new month begins.

Late Pickup
After school pick up is at 6:00PM sharp. A late fee of $1 per late minute will be incurred when a child is picked up after 6:00PM.

Musical Theater Program

Duration
We run full and spring seasons for musical theater. Spring season starts in January and ends in May. Fall season starts in August and ends in December. Three-hour sessions are held weekly for the duration of the season. Enrollment is rolling until a month or two before show time

Cast
We will have multiple casts simultaneously producing the show each season. Each cast can have up to 25 members. Auditions will be held, and everyone who signs up will be able to participate as a singer, actor, dancer or tech team member.

Price and Payments
The theater program costs $120 per student per month. Monthly payments are due on the first Friday. Bi-weekly payments are due the 1st and 3rd Fridays. Tuition does not include costumes or props, but we always work with students to find affordable options.

Minimum Student Requirement

This is our standard policy for minimal students per class, but we are being flexible with this policy as we launch.

Our group classes have a minimal requirement of six students to launch. Our musical theater shows have a minimal requirement of fifteen students to launch. If you sign up for a class and the minimal requirement of students for the class is not met, we will let you know if the same class is offered at another time which you might be able to attend. If no other options are available at a time that works for you, we will refund you for the class.
