Thank you for choosing Funk Lab for your dance and creative art lessons.
The staff at Funk Lab spend countless hours in bringing you the coolest and cleanest studio in the area. Please respect the property and its belongings. Food, gum and beverages are not allowed in the dance studio. Water bottles are encouraged and the only exception to this rule. All bathroom and water visits are to occur before and/or after class. Cell phones must be turned off!! Social conversations should be reserved for before and after class.
There is plenty of free parking in the lot adjacent to the studio.
All registered students are required to be on auto-payments for the main season. Families must submit a valid credit card prior to starting their first class. An electronic statement will be mailed on the 25th of the month prior to when tuition is due. Credit cards will be charged on the 1st of every month. Families may opt to pay with check or cash prior to the withdrawal date to avoid autodraft. Families may opt out of the credit card process ONLY by submitting post-dated monthly checks and paying a $10 monthly administrative fee. Students will be billed and charged monthly tuition from September-May.
*Tuition is the same amount each month regardless of the number of classes. Money is not refunded for missed lessons for any reason. There is a $25.00 charge on all returned checks. All accounts must be current prior to the annual show performance or participation may be canceled. Tuition is the same regardless if the month has 3,4,or 5 classes scheduled. Annual tuition is based upon the total number of classes for the year and then divided by 9 months for your convenience. Money will not be refunded for any reason.
DROPPING A CLASS
If you would like to drop a class, you must notify Funk Lab via EMAIL 7 days prior to last class. Students will be charged until notification is received and up until the 7th day from notification. Students must drop prior to the 23rd to avoid being charged the subsequent month. Funk Lab will not remove past charges or refund payments if families fail to drop from classes. Please do not assume your drop notification has been received until a member of our office returns your email.
INVALID/EXPIRED/REJECTED CREDIT CARDS
Cards that are not able to be processed due to being invalid, expired or with insufficient funds will be rerun on the 15th of the month. All families with balances on the 15th will be charged a late fee of $20, contacted by our billing manager and classes paused until payment can be made. Tuition will continue to accrue during this time unless family drops from class. This is due to the class space being held form that student.
MISSED CLASS MAKE UP
If a student misses a class, it can be made up during the month in which they were absent. No refund will be given for missed classes. Classes that are canceled by the studio will be rescheduled.
SNOW OR BAD WEATHER
If at any time it is necessary to cancel lessons due to bad weather such as snow and ice, there will be a recorded message on the answering machine after 2:30 P.M. that will say “classes have been canceled”. A similar message will be placed on the website. Please do not ask for us to call you back and let you know if classes are canceled. We just don’t have enough time to call everyone back. There will be NO reduction of tuition.
Private lessons are available at an extra charge. These may be used for extra practice if you have missed several lessons and need to catch up. Enrollment is very limited.
Loose, baggy and stylized clothing is appropriate for Hip Hop. You must have complete freedom of movement. All pants must be longer than the knee (when legs bent). Long-sleeve shirts are
preferable. Kneepads and knitted ski hats are recommended for bboy/bgirl classes.
