FEES: Our classes run from September through recital in June. The 10 months of tuition have been broken down into 10 equal payments, all holidays and recital rehearsals have been taken into consideration in the fees. Whether there are 3, 4, or 5 classes in a month the tuition price is the same as the price is determined for the entire year, with the final payment due by June 4th. All tuition payments are due on the first of each month. Any payments not received by the 10th of the month are subject to a $15.00 late fee. We offer a pre-payment discount as follows: 3 months prepayment receives a 5% discount, 6 months a 7% discount and, 10 months a 10% discount off the total tuition amount.

A non-refundable costume deposit of $60.00 per class is due by November 30th. If the costume cost is more than the deposit will bill you for the additional cost, and this balance will be due by January 14th, 2016. We try to choose a costume that is appropriate to the age of the students, as well as the recital theme. Our costumes are selected from a wide range of companies who in the past have sent us a reliable product. These costumes are not custom made. Students are measured and sized according to charts provided by each costume company. Alterations, if needed, are the responsibility of each student.
We offer a variety of class days and times. Please be advised that there is a minimum number of dancers required per class for that class to run. The class schedule will be finalized in October. For returning students, your recommended classes have been highlighted. This does not mean that your spot has been reserved. Please complete the enclosed enrollment form and return it with your first month’s tuition to reserve your spot in the highlighted classes. If these classes do not fit in your schedule please contact the studio for alternate class suggestions.
MAKE-UP LESSONS: Our faculty wants all students to have the same amount of training as their classmates before sharing a stage in June. We know this will make a more confident dancer, as well as a positive recital experience. Make-up lessons are offered for students. There are no refunds/deductions for missed classes and they must be made up within 30 days. Please stop at the front desk to find out when your make up classes are. Consistent attendance is required to maintain your class placement.
