  • Classes that fall on Labor Day, Memorial Day, and July 4th, for Independence Day, may be made up at alternative times at your convenience. 

  • Tuition is not adjusted for inclement weather or student absences. 

  • There are no credits given or carried over for unattended classes. You are paying for your child’s place in the class, as there are waiting lists for many classes.

  • How Tuition is Calculated:

____ (# of Hours) x ____ (Rate per Hour) x ____ (weeks left in session) / ___ # of payments

= ____ per payment

Drop in rate: $20.00 per 45 min./ 1 hr.

Professional rate: $10/hr

Punch cards: $18 per 45 min./ 1 hr

An explanation of Discounted Tuition (DT) versus a Punch Card (PC):
  • DT is paid in advance allowing your dancer to hold a permanent place in class and be included in performances.

  • With DT, as dance hours increase, a significant savings is realized

  • A Punch Card is offered for students who do not intend to complete the total weeks of training calculated for DT, or who do not intend to perform.

  • Purchasing and taking classes using a Punch Card does NOT hold a place in class for a student. Only if there is an opening in the class, may a Punch Card student attend. 

  • Punch Cards are purchased in advance at a rate of $153.00 for 8.5 hours of class time.

  • Tuition paid for a PC may convert to cover full time DT.

  • PCs do not expire, but new ones need to be purchased to continue in class.

  • PCs do not allow a student to hold a permanent place in class or allow eligibility to perform.

  • PC students are only allowed in class if there is available space.
