Elizabeth Chayer


The teacher is the determinant factor...

"Just as in the best public and private schools, the quality of the teacher in a class room and dance studio determines the quality of the student's class experience. American Dance Institute's teachers are the best. I know because I work very hard to find, mentor and retain them."  Elizabeth Chayer, Founder & Director

REFUNDS: Will be given if you are unhappy with our program in any way. If a student has to withdraw due to any other reason, 30 days written notice must be submitted to our office via letter or email. You will be charged for all classes through the date of your withdrawal, which will be calculated based on when your 30-day notice is received. Registration fees are non-refundable.

MISSED CLASSES: Because we limit class size, we cannot credit you for missed classes. Make-up classes are encouraged and permitted within the same session. Check with instructor for appropriate make-up classes.

MONTHLY PAYMENT PLANS include a 5% administrative fee. 

NSF CHECKS: Any check returned to us for insufficient funds will be charged a $35 bank fee.
