TUITION PAYMENT METHODS

Payment terms are September – December, January – April and May – August. Tuition may be paid by the term, per lesson or through 3for2 for new dancers. Some classes can also be paid for with a punch pass. Cash, cheque and etransfers are accepted forms of payment. Receipts are available on request. Cheques are payable to Rising Tide Irish Dance Academy Incorporated and etransfers can be sent to info@risingtideacademy.ca.

For complete details of fees and policies surrounding payment, download the fees & payment document.

Term payment
Payment is due by the first class of each term. To qualify for the term rate, dancers may take the full number of weekly classes offered or one fewer. For example, Championship dancers are offered three weekly classes and will receive the term rate for taking all three or only two, those dancers taking only one class must pay the drop-in rate. The term can be paid in a lump sum by cash, cheque or etransfer OR in four (4) cheques for one quarter of the term’s tuition each, post-dated to the first day of every month in the term (e.g. Jan. 1). If payment is not received by the last day of the first month of the term (e.g. Jan. 31) dancers will not be permitted to enter class until payment is received. New dancers joining Rising Tide partway through a term will have the term rate prorated from their start date. Dancers already in the school who register late will owe the full term’s tuition.

Drop-in payment
Drop-in fees are due by the end of every class attended by cash, cheque or etransfer. Classes must be paid for one at a time and drop-in fees cannot be pre-paid in batches.

3FOR2 payment
New dancers in beginner classes (children or adults) can attend three classes for the price of two drop-ins to be pre-paid in full at or before their first class. After attending three classes, dancers wishing to join can switch to the term rate for the remaining classes of their first term or continue to pay drop-ins. 3FOR2 dancers may wait until after their trial to purchase socks, shoes and school tshirts.

Punch pass payment
Drills, conditioning, and teams classes may be paid for with a punch pass (or drop-ins). Punch passes cost $103.50, providing ten, 45 minute classes (or equivalent time) for the cost of nine. Punch passes must be pre-purchased and presented to a coach at each class attended.

Family term discount
Rising Tide is pleased to offer a discount for families registering more than one family member for a term. Order is determined by class level with the highest level student paying full price and then going in descending order. Dancer one will pay full price. Dancer two will receive a 10 per cent discount off the full term fee before taxes. Dancer three and subsequent family members will receive a 15 per cent discount off the full term fee before taxes. Contact us for assistance with calculating your discount.
