  • If you have a planned vacation of 2 weeks or longer and let the office know before tuition is due that month, we can prorate a months tuition for you. This must be okayed by the office beforehand. No refunds are given for vacations.

    **If you miss a class, we do not refund or credit for the missed class. We do offer a make-up class, which you can do in any of the classes that fits your child's age range. It does not have to be the same style or same instructor. You will receive a makeup token through your parent portal. This token must be used within 30 days of the missed class.


  • Payments are due by the 10th of each month and considered late on the 11th.

  • Payments are late after the 10th and will incur a $10 late fee. If tuition is late 2 months in a row, you will be asked to have your tuition set to auto-deduct with a debit/credit card.

  • NSF fee for checks is $20.

  • We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover.

  • Auto-deduct is available with a debit or credit card through your online Sherwood Dance Account. Tuition is deducted on the the 4th of each month. Requests for due date change may be made by emailing the studio.

  • If you have any questions regarding tuition or anything financial, please address those questions to the Director or Assistant Director, as to allow the instructors to teach for full class time.


  • Tuition refunds are not given if you miss a class or drop part way through a month.

Snow Days

  • Tuition already reflects one snow day, so if there is a snow day there are no refunds or makeup lessons scheduled.

  • If there is more than one snow day for your class, makeup lessons will be scheduled or you can do a makeup lesson in any other class on the schedule. Refunds and credits are not given for any snow day, even if you can not make it to another class as a makeup lesson.
