Welcome to New Jersey Center of Dance!

We are a state of the art dance facility dedicated to the "Art of Dance". Please complete the following registration form. Credit cards are required for registration, if that is a problem, please contact the billing department at njcodbilling@gmail.com. Charges will be posted to your credit card, after your registration has been reviewed and discounts applied , if applicable. You will be notified by email within 24-48 hours of the charges.

Tuition & Registration Policy

Payments are made in 10 monthly payments or in full (discount applies) at time of registration. 

Tuition is due on the 1st of the month (Sept-May).  June is collected upon registration.

Registration/Insurance Fee: $35.00 per family.

Drop-in-Rate: $20.00

Auto credit card payments are only accepted, unless discussed otherwise.  

Credit Cards: Mastercard – Visa – Discover

Even though we permit monthly tuition payments and our families pay by the month, your tuition rates are based on a yearly (10 month, 35 week) tuition scale, which includes NJCOD being closed certain holidays of the year. 

The above breakdown of class tuition rates is for your information only - NJCOD does not allow pro-rating of classes for absences or holidays.  We do not offer make-ups for holidays since your annual rate does not include holidays. 

NJCOD will follow, in most cases, the Old Bridge and Monroe school calendar.  Regardless of the length of the month, tuition remains the same. 

If a Pre-School dancer is not ready to participate in a class after a 4 week trial period you will be released from your contract.  June tuition will not be refunded which is equal to 4 weeks of class. No additional tuition will be charged to your account.  Registration fee is Non-refundable.

 

Late Fees:

  • A $25.00 late fee will be charged for payments received after the 15th of the month.

  • All declined Credit Cards will incur a $35.00 charge for reprocessing with a 48 hour grace period to update your Credit Card info beginning on the 1st of the month.

  • A fee of $35.00 will be charged for all returned checks.

 

NJCOD will not send out statements unless payment is late.  You can check your account online at anytime.

 

Closings

Withdrawing  From A Class

NJCOD has a strict “no refund” policy, but you may withdraw from a class at anytime forfeiting all payments already made, including registration and costume fees. 

Note: If you withdraw, you will receive your costume (if paid in full) and only if ALL original tuition and fees have been paid. 

When withdrawing please email: NJCODbilling@gmail.com

Please note: Classes and schedule are subject to change and may be cancelled depending on enrollment.

Attendance and Make-Up Policy

Regular attendance is crucial to the continued development of the student. 

Please Note: NJCOD has a “no refund” policy for missed classes.  Classes missed for any reason may be made-up within 30 days in another class.  Please inquire at the front desk as to the class, day and time for your dancer’s make-up.

Inclement Weather Policy

As a general rule, we follow the decisions of the Old Bridge and Monroe Board of Education when it comes to weather cancellations.  If the public schools are closed or dismissed  early, we will be closed.  If there is a delayed opening we will be open.  On occasion we must overrule the school system if conditions near the studio are unsafe. 

 

Notifications will be sent by email and can be found on our website and Facebook.

Annual Production and Costume Policy

We hold an Annual Production each year.  Each dance number a student is in will require a costume.  Participation in the Annual Production is mandatory, except for designated non-performance classes.  Attendance at Dress Rehearsal is also mandatory.

 

A production fee of $35 per student will be charged on our Costume Order Form and will include a Performance T-Shirt to be worn in our show Finale.

 

If applicable parents are responsible to purchase required footwear to go with the costume.

 

NJCOD is not responsible for alterations to a dancer’s costume or for minor defects caused by the costume company.
