Tuition will be debited from your bank account on the first day of each month (September – June) or charged to your credit card the first day of each month.

Off Premises Policy
InnerRhythms shall not be responsible for injuries to or actions of students who are physically off of the Dance Centre premises either with or without the permission of their parent or legal guardian. Further, InnerRhythms shall not be responsible for monitoring whether or not a student has permission to leave the Centre after being dropped off and prior to commencement of their classes and/or rehearsals.
Missed Classes and Holiday Closures
NO refunds or make-ups will be given for missed classes. No make-up classes are permitted. The Dance Centre will follow the Truckee Tahoe Unified School District calendar for most holiday closures. The studio reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regularly scheduled teacher is ill or is otherwise unable to teach class. If a teacher is ill and the studio cannot arrange a substitute, an additional class will be scheduled at a later date to replace the missed class.
If the studio must cancel classes due to extreme weather or events beyond our control such as power outages, notice of closure will be posted on our Website and Facebook pages. No refunds for classes missed due to these reasons can be given; however students are welcome to make up snow day classes by trying any class that is age and level appropriate!
