Frequently Asked Questions

Online Account Management

For your convenience The DanceLife Center offers our dance families an online account management software system. Families are able to log in to their account to view and print their schedule, track their absences and makeups, update credit card or bank account information, and more! To sign up to use the customer portal, you first have to register for a class for either this Semester or next semester's dance season. Current classes and accounts are not available.

Where To Register

Returning Customers: If you participated in last summer's dance session, this dance season (whether active or have dropped), or have registered for this summer's dance session - you will click on Parent Portal Login.

New Customers: If you are new and do not fall in one of the above categories, please view "How To Register" below where you will see our class schedule organized by each day of the week. Click on the day you are interested in coming to dance to see the offerings for that day arranged by time. This makes it easy for you to view classes that start before and after each other for families who like to stack their schedules with multiple classes in one day.

How To Register

  1. Click 'Enroll Here', find the class you are interested in registering for and click the blue word "Enroll" listed to the left of the class name.
  2. Fill out the information requested (fields with asterisks are required.) From there you will also be able to choose additional classes and add additional students.
  3. A credit or debit card or a bank account is required in order to register.
  4. In the event that a class is full, you will see the word "Waitlist" instead of "Register." To be entered on the waitlist, please click that button and proceed. You will be required to enter payment information, however no payment will be made on the account unless a spot becomes available. If a spot becomes available, we will contact you regarding enrolling in the class.

How To Use The Parent Portal

After you are enrolled in a class, you will be able to use the Parent Portal. You will create a Parent Portal account by entering the email address and portal password that you provided at registration time. If it is your first time visiting your portal and do not have or do not remember your password, click Forgot your password or need to get started? A password will be sent to the email address you have on file with us. Use that to log in to your account. From there you can change your password-just make sure it has a minimum of 8 characters, 1 of which must be a number.

Tuition Payments

Tuition is due by the 1st of each month, no later than the 10th, and can be paid via cash, credit card, debit card, check or online through the customer portal. All accounts that sign up online are automatically set up for e-payment and you are authorizing DanceLife to use the account information for all of your account billing (including registration fee, tuition, costume fees, late fees, recital fees and other studio or dance related items purchased on your account). After the 10th of the month, a $25 late fee will be charged and enforced on all accounts past due, including e-payment accounts. Late notices will be sent via email. Tuition is not pro-rated for absences or studio closures. Students are encouraged to attend make up classes for classes missed. Dual studio students must make up their missed classes at the location of the missed class.
