What if a student in the summer audition period won’t know company placement results before the early-bird discount ends? Results for company auditions won’t be known until the end of each summer session in August. To take advantage of the discount, auditioning students should, therefore, go ahead and register for required classes specific to the companies for which they are auditioning. If a student is not placed in the desired company for the Sept.-June session, a recommendation will be made for classes to switch to as a plan of action to help the student in future auditions.

Refunds & Class Drop-Out: Registration fee and first month’s tuition are not refundable for any reason. Full refunds are given only for class cancellation by Heartbeat due to insufficient enrollment, or for illness or injury supported by a doctor’s notice. A student dropping all classes at Heartbeat after the first month must submit a 30-day written notice in order to be taken off the billing cycle. Tuition will still be due during the 30-day drop-out period.

What Defines a Class? All classes, whether taught onsite or virtually, are considered classes for which tuition is due. Both methods deliver training and the expertise of professionals in the performing arts.
