2017 - 2018 Tuition Policy for Tir Na Nog Irish Dance and Blackstone River Theatre

Blackstone River Theatre will soon be transitioning over to PayPal, an E-Commerce payment system. Many of the students in the different classes offered (banjo, fiddle, whistle, dulcimer, and Irish Dance) have asked the theatre to switch to a more modern payment system. (Those who still want to pay by check/cash will still be able to.)

While we continue to work out the details in setting up this system and making it available through the new BRT website and the Tir Na Nog website we will still use our old system of payment and registration. 

 Please note the following changes to tuition for the 2017 - 2018 year:


 All classes must be paid in FULL. 

 Dancer Absences: Planned vacation class absences or missed classes due to illness will not be refunded and cannot be applied as a credit or deducted from class payment. Dancers may choose to make up their missed class by coming to a different class (Tir Na Nog is now offering 19 levels, on 6 days!). If you are unsure of what class to attend, please email me and I will direct you to the correct make-up class. This rule will apply for classes from September to June. Please see below for Summer classes and tuition. 

 Summer Classes: Will be prorated for the classes the student attends as we would like you to keep dancing over the summer but we also understand there are vacations and fun times planned! Example: A student can come to 6 classes of an 8-week session in the summer.  You would only pay for the 6 classes you actually take during the summer months. 

 Cancellations: If classes are canceled due to inclement weather an email will be sent to all dancers. If you have changed your email please notify me so I have up to date contact information. The Tir Na Nog website will also be updated on the home page with the cancellation information as well as our Facebook page. www.TirNaNogIrishDanceRI.com

There are no refunds due to inclement weather, but Blackstone River Theatre and Tir Na Nog Irish Dance will do our best to find an appropriate time for a make-up class as the schedule allows! 

Tuition for classes is based on an 8 week session. If the session is shorter PayPal will be updated with the correct tuition amount for the number of weeks in that session.
