All students are registered on a yearly basis. Tuition is payable at the beginning of each school year, with the exception of Duet, PNBS Tots, Creative Movement, and Creative Dance Boys, which are payable on a quarterly basis. For Pre-Ballet and above, tuition may be paid in semester or monthly installments upon approval of the School. Payments are due by the first of each month. Students admitted after the school year has begun are eligible to pay a pro-rated amount upon approval of the Managing Director.
Once classes have begun, tuition is not refundable. Students who miss class or withdraw before the end of the semester are still obligated for the full semester’s fees, whether they are paying on a semester basis or in monthly installments.
Students are eligible for a pro-rated tuition refund only if they must withdraw from classes due to prolonged illness or severe injury, verified by a doctor’s certificate.
Students with outstanding accounts will not be admitted to class. There is a $20 charge for any returned check.
*Semester installments include a processing fee and are due in September and January.
**Monthly installments (10 months; September–June) include a processing fee.
The mandatory accident insurance fee is included in the tuition payment. Please note that PNBS’ insurance is a secondary policy.
