Sue White, owner/proprietor of Footnotes Studio of Dance has consistently mismanaged her students accounts. She has continued to charge for classes not taken or dropped. She has cancelled national competition trips less than a week before the competition because of disagreements with parents arranging transportation of students.
Miss White, informed my own daughter 6 days before a scheduled competition day that her bill was past due and if she did not pay it in full that day then she could not compete. My daughter was excited to perform her first solo dance that she had worked for all year. A personal confrontation with Miss White forced her to go into our account and correct the mistakes she had made which made the bill we "supposedly" owed her less than half of what her books stated. Her excuse was that she was that she "worked another job and was too tired at the end of the day to do her accounts." !! Once we got home we went over the copy of her billing again and found further discrepencies which ended up with her owing us money!
As a result my daughter dropped out of dance after 4 years and we will never get to see her solo or her dance again, for that matter. She is graduating HS and heading to college. The emotional toll this has taken on my daughter as well as us (her parents) cannot be described. This was a big year and a big deal for my daughter this year and now she is completely crushed and defeated.
This woman is inept and incapable of running a business. She constantly adds additional charges to her set tuition schedule and is likely doing the same thing to other parents' bills that she has done to ours. She should NOT be in business and I would strongly advise finding a different dance studio if you want your child to take dance lessons.
