The majority of our classes are scheduled for 9 months beginning in September and ending with our final performance in May. Tuition for these classes is from September thru May. Tuition is not prorated based upon the number of classes taken or registering late. Periodically, workshops will be offered (as noted on the class details) for which payment in full is due at registration.
1. Payment in full for the entire year
2. Payment is divided into 3 equal installments as detailed below. Payment due dates for classes that run the entire season from September thru May are:
Invoices will be mailed about two weeks prior to the payment due date.
Please note, costume deposits and costume fees are only collected for those classes that require a costume to be ordered. In some cases, students may be asked to provide their own costume in which instance that class will show as “Class Only” on the invoice and no costume fee will be charged. As noted, the November invoice is a costume deposit only for each performance with the balance of each costume due in February. Some dance students also perform in December and will either need to purchase a costume or t-shirt for this performance. Accessories are the responsibility of the student.

Once registered, we are counting on your student to be a part of the program. This is critical as much work has been done selecting songs and costumes along with developing recital choreography with your child in mind. As such, we ask that you do not ‘drop’ a class unless no other alternative is available. That being said, we do recognize that circumstances come up that require your student to drop a class.
In order to drop a class, please complete a Drop/Add Form as soon as you are aware of the need to leave the class. This is critical because costumes are ordered as early as November and many plans are made based upon your student being in the class. Once the form is received, refunds will be given based upon the following schedule:
Please note, depending on the timing of the cancellation, costumes may be held by the school for use by an understudy. Once registered, late registrations will follow the same schedule as noted above. Unless specifically requested, refund checks are processed and issued in June upon completion of our season.

In order for us to offer our workshops a minimal enrollment is required. As such, once registered, workshops are non-refundable. Likewise, private lessons require advance scheduling and a special commitment by our teachers. As such, once scheduled and registration is received, private lessons are non-refundable.
Registration and other one-time fees including, but not limited to, class fees are non-refundable.

Costumes are ordered and paid for as early as November in order to receive them on time for pictures and recital. So, although it is not our preference, the following fees will be assessed in order to cover the extra costs incurred by the school for these items:
