Policies & Tuition

Click here to register for classes.

Attendance:

Attendance will be monitored. What you get out of something is determined by what you put into it. Absenteeism will only slow down your dancer's progress. We are very interested in developing your dancer's talents to their fullest potential. Attendance is expected at each scheduled class. Part of a student's attendance is being on time. Dance students are expected to arrive 5 minutes prior to class to properly stretch and warm up so as to prevent any unnecessary injuries. If a student arrives more than 10 minutes after the start of the class, the instructor may have him/her sit, observe, and not participate in class. Showcase participation requires consistent attendance.

Student Absence/Make-up Policy:

We cannot guarantee the availability of make up classes. If a student misses a class due to illness or conflict, the parent must contact the office manager at heartlandconservatory@gmail.com.  Make-up classes are to be completed at the student's level or below, and must be scheduled in advance. All missed classes must be made up within 2 weeks of the missed class. Make up classes will be limited and only available as class sizes allow.  make ups will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. There is a limit of 2 make-up classes per semester and there is no carry-over of make-ups between the semesters.

Weather Closing Policy:

In the event of inclement weather and/or poor road conditions, classes may be canceled for the safety of our students. When Millard &/or Omaha Public Schools are closed due to weather, Heartland Conservatory of Dance will also be closed. If inclement weather falls on a weekend, HCD will not follow Millard &/or Omaha closings, but will send out an email to let families know how to proceed. Please call the Conservatory to hear a current message or visit the website http://www.hcdomaha.com to receive the current message due to the weather. HCD does not credit, refund, or pro-rate tuition for classes canceled due to inclement weather.

Student Pick-up:

Out of courtesy for our teachers, students must be picked up promptly following class or rehearsal. After 2 instances of students being picked up more than 10 minutes after your child's class ends, you will be billed $1 per minute. Additionally, your student will not be permitted to participate in class or rehearsals until this fee is paid. Young dancers must wait inside the building until they parents arrive by car.

Showcase:

2020-21 Dance Program at Heartland Conservatory of Dance Culminates in the end of the year showcase. The showcase package fee is $100 per Student and an additional fee for the cost of each student's costume(s). All students will be enrolled in showcase. Package includes Participation fee, professionally recorded video and two tickets to the performance. 

Family Discounts:

Family rates are available to families from the same household with more than one child attending classes. The family discount is 10% for each additional student enrolled. Family rates only apply to students under the enrolled in the Conservatory Programs (single class and adult class rates are excluded). 

Returned Check Policy:

There is a $35 charge for returned checks or Auto withdrawals.

Tuition/Late Fees:

Payments are split into 10 installments or 2 installments, due on the 1st of the month. A late fee of $15 will be charged if payment is not received by the 9th of the month.

Refund:

Tuition is non-refundable except in the case of serious illness or injury as verified by a doctor's letter or due to relocation.

Withdrawal:

In the unlikely event that a student needs to withdraw early from the session, a Class Drop Form must be completed to close the account and prevent further billing. The Conservatory requires two weeks notice prior to the effective date of the withdrawal. A student's absenteeism does not affect tuition payment. The account will only be closed with a completed Class Drop Form and will go into effect two weeks from the date received based upon the number of weeks remaining in the session.
