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.


Two tuition payment plans are offered. Costume payment schedule remains the same with either option.

1. Payment in full for the entire year

  • At Registration – Tuition portion for ALL classes is paid at registration with any applicable fees.
  • Family Discount – A one-time discount of $15 is given per family if this option is chosen.  

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:

  • At Registration – first payment of tuition and any applicable fees.
  • October 30th – second payment of tuition and any applicable fees.
  • January 29th – FINAL payment of tuition, remaining costume balance and any applicable fees.

Invoices will be mailed about two weeks prior to the payment due date.

Once registered, we are counting on your student to be a part of the program. This is critical as our teachers are part time and giving up employment elsewhere to support your child(ren).  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:

  • Sept 18th through Sep 29th cancellations: 10% of full year tuition is required to be paid.
  • Sep 30th through Oct 27th cancellations: 35% of full year tuition is required to be paid.
  • Oct 28th through Nov 17th cancellations: 50% of full year tuition is required be paid.
  • Nov 18th through Jan 28th cancellations: 75% of full year tuition is required be paid.
  • Jan 29th through the end of the season: No tuition or costume refunds will be given.

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. Click Here for Drop/Add Form.


Registration and other one-time fees including, but not limited to, class fee are non-refundable.
