Tuition

Tuition is based on a total discounted fee for taking weekly classes.  Tuition may be paid monthly (due at the first class of each month) or in one payment at the rates, listed below. 

There are no tuition refunds but any classes missed may be made up in a lower or comparable class.  Missed classes must be made up by the end of the current year (May 25, 2022). Tuition and participation in the dance productions depend upon weekly attendance.  If you cannot attend weekly classes and/or do not plan to make them up before May 25, 2022, then dancers may not be eligible for the special tuition rate  and may not be eligible to dance in the spring show. 

Tuition reminders will be emailed; please be sure to specify your email on the registration forms.  If you choose the monthly payments, please understand that there is a $25 late or returned check fee.  If you know that you will not be able to attend class when tuition is due, be sure to mail your tuition payment to the following address:

You may also send electronic payments through PayPal. (Please contact us for that information.) Please understand that dancers/gymnasts will not be allowed to participate until monthly tuition payments are received. Additionally, missing a previously-scheduled private lesson without advance notification, will result in a $30-60 fee, the cost of a half-hour/hour private lesson. Dancers may enroll at any time throughout the year, but those who enroll after February may not be eligible to participate in the spring recital.
