Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How often is tuition due?

A. We divide the year into seven sessions, averaging 6-8 weeks per session.  Tuition is due in advance of each session on or before each Priority Due Date.  For your convenience, we offer a credit card “auto pay” option so that you will never miss a PDD!  If you are interested in enrolling in the auto pay program, please contact our office for additional information.

Q.  What is the Priority Due Date (PDD), and why do you have it?

A.  Our Priority Due Date (PDD) is the last possible date by which Current Students may pay tuition in order to maintain their current class spot.  After the PDD, our computer system automatically deletes unpaid students from the roster and  new students are placed in vacancies.  The PDD is approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of the next session. 

Q. Can I observe class?

A.  Parents and siblings are always welcome to watch the weekly progress of our students.  Only two requirements:

  1. Viewing is limited to the lobby area.  Parents and sibling are not permitted on the gym floor.
  2. Parents are not allowed to converse with students during class times.  

We have learned from years of experience that these rules are necessary.  Speaking with your child from the lobby area is very distracting and could lead to serious injury! 

Q.  Do you close when the schools have a holiday or “snow day”?

A. To ensure consistent programs, we are open for most holidays (e.g.  Columbus Day, Presidents Day).  Because we sit between many different school districts, we do not follow the closing decisions of any particular district.  Please call the office or check our website to receive any closing information.  Such information will be updated regularly.

*If your child’s class day falls on a date that we are closed for a Holiday, please contact the office to schedule a make-up class! Tuition will not be pro-rated for holiday closings.

Absences & Make - Ups

Due to the popularity of our classes many run at full capacity, therefore we may be unable to accept make-ups in them. Please make every effort to attend your regularly scheduled class time. Make-ups depend on safety concerns, space, equipment, and teaching ratios. School age students are asked to attend one of our 2 hour long open gyms for all make-ups. To optimize learning, make-ups are asked to be completed within the same session of the missed class.

Unfortunately we are not able to credit or refund for missed classes.

Additional Information


To continue in your current class, please PAY TUITION BEFORE THE PRIORITY DUE DATE (PDD) to guarantee your class spot!  In addition, if you need to change your class day/time, we will gladly accommodate your request (assuming there is a vacancy in your desired class).  Please be advised that there are NO REFUNDS or credits for missing a class. 


Our open enrollment policy allows your child to join us at anytime (as long as there is a vacancy in your desired class).  


We occupy Units 101 & 102, with entry made through the North driveway.   For your safety, we ask that you enter through the NORTH driveway, and when leaving, please drive around the back of the building and exit via the SOUTH driveway.  This alleviates congestion and promotes safety.  Please do NOT park in front of the entry way to Units 101- 104.  No child is allowed to wait in the parking lot for pickup

Thank you!
