Do I have to pay now? Can I set up a payment plan?
All classes require a deposit to secure your space. Registration also includes a non-refundable $25 registration fee. Payment plans are available to anyone who prefers to split up their balance. Payment plans are available in many installments, from 2, 3 all the way to 9. No application is required; payment plans can be arranged through our secure online registration system. A credit card is required for all payment plans.
Will there be a performance at the end of the class?
What happens if I want to cancel the class?
If your registration is canceled after it has been processed, but at least one week before the class begins, we will refund tuition, less a $25 admin fee per class.
If your registration is canceled less than one week before the class starts, no refund will be given. Any tuition paid for the canceled class, minus the admin and registration fees, becomes a credit, which you may use towards future tuition for one year.
Kaleidoscope reserves the right to cancel a class if enrolment is insufficient. Any tuition paid will be refunded in full, including the registration fee.
Make-up classes will be provided for classes canceled due to inclement weather.
Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Studio classes will be canceled on days that Victoria School District #61 Public Schools are closed due to weather conditions.
We want all students to be satisfied with their experience at Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Studio. If, after completing the first day of group class, you decide that you do not want to continue, let us know before the second class or within 2 days after first class, whichever comes first, and we will refund your payment (minus a $25 admin fee and the non-refundable registration fees). After the second day of class, no tuition or enrolment adjustments will be made. This policy does not apply to Camps, Workshops, or Voice Classes.
My young artist has done a lot of theatre with school and other programs, but this is our first Kaleidoscope class. Can I register them for upper level classes?
Kaleidoscope classes are hand tailored to meet the needs of the students within the class, depending on their ages and skill levels. Sometimes a student who is 8, for example, might feel too old in a class that is for ages 6-8. In this case, if they are turning 9 within the current school year, we are happy to move them into a program for ages 9-12.
What if my young artist wants to switch to another class?

Withdrawals and Refunds
Students must submit a written withdrawal request to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellation of Private Voice lessons requires a one month paid notice. Should a class be cancelled by Kaleidoscope for any reason, a full refund, minus the pro-rated value of any class already passed, will be issued. Refunds past the date mentioned above will only be considered due to illness or injury and will be subject to provision of a doctor’s letter.
Student Attendance / Make-Up Classes
•If the student misses a lesson due to illness, personal choice or other extracurricular or school activities, the instructor may offer a make-up lesson. There are no refunds for missed classes.
•The Instructor will provide the opportunity for two make-up lessons per student per term (Sep-Dec and Jan-June) for lessons missed by the student.
•If the instructor is sick or unable to attend a scheduled class, a make-up lesson will be provided outside of the two per term limit. In the event that a make-up lesson for an instructor cancelled class cannot be arranged, then the fees paid for that class will be refunded by the theatre or held on account as a credit for future classes.
•If a make-up lesson is scheduled and a student misses, or cancels, their scheduled make-up, there will be no further make-up offered and no refund provided for the missed lesson.
•Cancellation of Lessons requires a one month paid notice sent to both the instructor, Anna Shill (email@example.com) and the Studio Principal, Pat Rundell (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
•As Kaleidoscope employees a working faculty, it is possible that the instructor may be absent to work on a production. In the event that the instructor is to be absent for more than one week, make-up classes will be offered if the student desires, and any un-made-up classes will be refunded or held on account as to the wishes of the student.
