WE ARE OPEN ON MONDAY 10/09/2023
Hello Dance Families!
We welcome you to the Maralee's Dance Family!
We know some of you may have started in September or may just be joining us. When you first enrolled, your first payments would have included your Enrollment fee and two September classes. (Some of you may not have set up a payment on your account so there may be a balance that is still due from September.)
We want to be sure you have selected your monthly Auto Payment Date to process each month. (You can choose your payment date of the following: 5th, 15th or 20th). You can cancel, change or update your payment information right in your family portal.
To get your auto payment set up: Go to your personal family portal you created to enroll. Open the portal, then choose from your selections from the top left corner drop down lines, look for edit payment on file. Input the card you want to use for your monthly tuition and continue through check out. BE SURE TO SELECT YOUR PAYMENT DATE. Only pay if you still have a balance from your Enrollment fee and September Tuition. You can change the total amount due to any amount you may need to pay. We will then process your monthly payment on your selected date. October 5th will be our first Automatic Payment Process.
As a reminder; some of our multi-discounts will need to be hand keyed in. Any time you have questions feel free to reach out to Tammy (503-655-6160), as she handles all the financials.
We invite you to explore your portal and become familiar with your dance portal As the year progresses, you will receive monthly newsletters, costume information, and performance information during the season. You may view your dancers’ class day and times, upload their picture and add/drop classes anytime. We require at least a 30 day notice to drop any classes for future charges. You will be responsible for any costumes, shoes, or items that may have already been ordered. Some items we may be able to reuse and place back into our stock, and if so you will then have no charge.
*Please Note: For those of you who have selected to have auto payments dates, you will receive your tuition at the discounted amount. You can choose 5th, 15th , or 20th of each month. On the 30th we will invoice those who may still have balances due and then process any balances on the account.
Maralee's Dance Square Boutique: All dancewear, tights, and shoe orders will be charged through and/or invoiced via our Maralee's Square Boutique. Our Maralee's Square Boutique helps us with inventory and should be paid from this site, you may pay via credit/debit card or stop by with cash or check to pay. (Paying by cash and check saves Maralee’s from processing fees.) You also have an option to save your payment information for future invoices. *After 30 days: If your invoice has not been paid, we will then transfer any charges to your family portal and immediately process your payment to close your active Square invoice.
Maralee's Dance 2023-24 Student/Parent Handbooks will be released later this month and will be emailed soon. We have past seasons at the dance school for viewing.
