If your tuition or other balances are not paid within that 14 day grace period, a $20 late fee will be added to your invoice.

Students in ALL classes are required to wear specific attire and shoes to class. Click the button below to see a detailed list of what is required. All of the required items are available to purchase inside JM Studios for your convenience. If your child does not wear the appropriate attire and shoes to class, they may be sent home.
A student's age is a basic guideline for class placement. Often times, other qualities are put into consideration such as: strength, maturity level, enthusiasm, focus level and technique. It is not uncommon for dancers to stay in the same level class for 2-3 years. Often times, dancers are moved to a higher level class too early. This leads to injuries and improper techniques can form. Being promoted to a new class doesn't always make them stronger dancers. In some cases, it can hinder their dance education. We appreciate you for trusting our professional decisions and for understanding that we have your dancer's best interest in mind.
