Policies

Tuition

Tuition is non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-extendable. Tuition payments are due on or before the first of each month. All payments for tuition are made via credit or debit card on a recurring monthly basis. Your credit or debit card will be charged automatically on the first of the month. A late fee of $25 will automatically be charged to accounts that are past due after the 3rd. We require a 14-day cancellation notice based upon the first of the month.

Monthly tuition rates are based on the number of weeks in the school calendar year. Tuition is a fixed monthly charge. Occasionally there will 4 or 5 weeks per month, but usually there will be 4 weeks per month, thus the monthly charge will not change throughout the school year. NO discounts will be given for holidays because this has already been calculated into the rate.

All team members are required to pay tuition consecutively each month for the duration of the competition season (usually September 1st-June 15th of each year. The fees are calculated to pay the instructors as well as operating expenses, even if your child does not attend due to vacations, sickness, school activities, etc.

A discount of 10% will be applied to each additional client taking OK Rhythmic Empire classes from the same family. Discount is applied to equal or lesser value of the tuition costs.

For referring a friend, a one-time $25 credit will be applied to your next month's tuition once the new student submits their second month's payment. You may apply this discount once for each new member referred.

OK Rhythmic Empire does not offer credits or refunds once enrolled, even if you enroll before the session begins. The gym commits the training slot to you and, once the session begins, pays the instructors as well as other operating expenses even if you do not attend. 

Parents must  notify OK Rhythmic Empire to drop a student from the class.  Only a written notice via emial, regular mail or hand delivered to your staff will be acceptable.

Training

All gymnasts must wear a black leotard or stretchy tank top and shorts. No skirts or baggy clothes, please. Hair must be up in either a bun or short pony tail. No necklaces, bracelets, or rings, Earrings should be small (studs). Competitive Team gymnasts must wear toe-shoes. 

NO PARENTS ARE ALLOWED INSIDE THE PRACTICE AREA AT ANY TIME. There is waiting area with live video feeds for you to watch your child(ren) if you would like. Please no coaching from the sidelines or any comments about any gymnast at any time.
OK Rhythmic Empire does not guarantee that you can make up missed classes. It is much better that your child attends class each week for continuity and progression of skills. But given that illness and scheduling conflicts do occur, OK Rhythmic Empire allows one (1) make-up class per thirty (30) day period (thirty (30) day period starts at date of missed class). Classes must be made up in the month they are missed or the following month. 
Be sure your student arrives 5-10 minutes before (no earlier please) his/her scheduled class time. If you arrive less than 5-10 minutes late, join right in. Students who are more than 10 minutes late may also join in, but they have already missed a significant amount of the warm up and will need to complete their stretching while everyone continues their lesson. The warm up is designed to get the body ready for practice. For the safety of your athlete, it should not be missed.
Please pick up your student on time. Please inform us if you know you will be late picking up your student. 
At times, emergencies such as earthquakes, severe weather, fires, or power failures can disrupt operations. The decision to close the office will be made by  Director. In the event of a weather or emergency, members should check their e-mail for closure notices.

 For all Policies, Terms and Conditions please refer to Parent Handbook. You will receive a Parent Handbook once your child is registered for classes
