Tuition Payments Per Student
Tuition is charged monthly and is based on an 11-month calendar from August 11th, 2023, through June 24th, 2024. Tuition rates remain the same whether a given month of classes is long or short with one exception: August tuition will each be prorated for 3 weeks of classes.
Classes at the Dance Academy continue after our performances for the months of December & June. Payment for these months still need to be paid, even if your student will not be participating in class. If you know that they will not be attending during that particular month, they can take make-up classes at any time during the school year.
PLEASE NOTE: If you decide to withdraw your student from the Dance Academy after the performance and then decide to rejoin in January, you will be required to pay a $45.00 Registration Fee, and your child will not be able to take make-up classes. We register several new students in December & January so you may be put on a waiting list for your desired classes. Once you withdraw from a class, there is no guarantee that your child's place in that class will be held.
PLEASE NOTE: To participate in our November or June shows, monthly tuition for those months is due prior to the shows. Please speak to our front desk if you need to make any special arrangements with these tuition payments.
Monthly Tuition is Due on the 1st of the month. Auto-charge can be set up in the studio.
