What is the $55 New Member Package Fee vs. Annual Family Membership Fee?
This fee includes our New member package of a Flips leotard (or Flips t-shirt), tie-dye bag, sticker, and magnet, and is charged per child. This fee is to encourage consistency in attendance over the year as well. The benefits of any educational program comes from long term involvement and our choice to charge an annual administrative fee rather than slightly increasing tuition over the year is to encourage consistency. It may help to remind readers that some industries such as martial arts and health clubs opt for yearly contracts while others such as academic schools and some dance schools opt for semester payments. Our 'soft' approach still allows in/out flexibility for those families who need it for one reason or another.
