Tuition & FAQs
How much is tuition and HOW DO WE PAY?
Tuition is billed at the first of each month, and is based on how many classes are taken each week. Company members also take rehearsal classes each week.
Tuition is due on the 1st of the month. All tuition, costumes deposits, and convention and/or competition costs will be automatically charged to the debit or credit card on file. If you prefer paying cash or check, it will need to be paid the first week of dance in the month. If not paid on time, balances will be charged to the card on file.
A declined payment will result in a fee of $25.00. If we do not receive cleared payment on time, your child will not be allowed to dance and attend classes. Monthly tuition will remain the same regardless of the number of weeks in a month. No credits are given for missed classes. If your child chooses to no longer dance, we will need to fill out a withdrawal form. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide the form for you and will begin the withdrawal process.
*There is a 5% discount for full tuition payment at the time of registration.
Discount will not apply after the August 15th.

How much attendance is required?
Attendance is your responsibility. If a dancer has poor attendance, they will start to fall behind in their dance subject. Students that miss 3 consecutive weeks of dance will be removed from the class and his/her spot will be given to the first person on the wait list. A successful dance year requires a commitment from the dancers and their parents.
What attire is required for classes and practice?
Any leotard and tights may be worn to class as long as it is simple and conservative in style. Tights must be worn at all times. A basic outfit is required for students ages 3 to Junior Elite.
