Tuition
Dance Tuition is always due by the 1st of every month, and late by the 10th! The fee options shown below are for each month and include a 3% online ordering convenience fee (indicated in the drop down and PayPal pricing). For your convenience, we have added a Semester Payment Option as well as a Yearly Payment Option. You will not receive a monthly invoice.

After the 15th, a $15 late fee per month will be applied. Please make sure you pay on time each month to avoid late fees. Tuition is based on a yearly rate, from September through May/June, paid in nine payments. Some months have three classes while other months have five classes. Monthly payment installments remain the same throughout the year. We do not prorate tuition for any reason.

Holidays and closures are already calculated into your nine payments. If joining a class after the first week of that month, the full payment installment must be made for that month and makeups in similar classes are encouraged for any missed weeks. There are absolutely no refunds. If at any time, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have move to virtual dance classes, tuition is still due and classes will be held during regular class times.

This year, we have found ourselves in a new normal and we are committed to continuing to offer you the best dance experience. Thanks to technology, we will be providing you with an online dance experience for your dancer to keep them moving, learning and having fun if we have to dance virtually again. If at anytime you are uncomfortable with sending your child to dance class due to Covid-19, your child will still be able to dance VIRTUALLY!
Class Attendance
Students must attend classes regularly for their own benefit as well as the growth and development of the class as a whole. Our dance classes are based on individual commitment; however they are fueled by the entire class. If you are sick, running fever, showing symptoms of Covid-19 or someone living in your home has Covid-19, please stay home for the safety and wellness of our dance family and community. By coming to class we assume that all students are healthy and able to dance. If your child has a sprained ankle, cast, etc. PARENTS should let us know about the situation in advance and we will let your child observe the class.
