March Studio Updates

Hello Motion Family! Here are updates for March at A Body in Motion:

A reminder for those not on auto draft that tuition is due by the 5th or a late fee is charged, even if we are closed for a holiday. Please make plans to stop by our front desk and take care of your March payment or fill out an auto draft form to avoid late fees. Payment may also be dropped off in our mailbox by our front door.

ANY STUDENT MORE THAN ONE MONTH PAST DUE IN TUITION IS AUTOMATICALLY DROPPED FROM THE ROLL.

Please be advised you will have to re-register your child if/when you return. Full enrollment classes with a waiting list will have the next child on the wait list move in to your child’s spot. For full enrollment classes, you will have to wait for an opening to return. Thank you.

As stated in emails, flyers passed out in all classes, Parent Meetings, signs posted by and on our front door, verbal announcements by staff in the studio hallways, our web site and social media, Recital Fee is due. Any child not paid will pulled out of formations in choreography and no costumes will be ordered. We will make very attempt to call and email but if we have no response after Saturday, it will be too late to be included in our production.
