Tuition & Fees

Our tuition and fees allow us to provide the best quality dance education to our students. We strive to present parents with the most accurate annual financial obligation up front to avoid any surprises during the year.

A nominal, non-refundable fee of $35 per student is charged for registration. For returning students, a reduced fee of $20 will be charged. A flat $50 fee is charged for families of 2 or more students ($35 for returning families). Competition students are exempt from this fee. No registration fee for Summer sessions.

Multi-class discounts available

Summer tuition is a one time fee based on the length of the class

Tuition is an annual fee paid in 10 monthly installments. The monthly amount remains unchanged regardless of the number of classes in the month including holidays and other studio closings. 

There are NO refunds for missed classes. This policy applies to classes missed due to student's personal reasons, unscheduled teacher absences or inclement weather.

If a student needs to withdraw from classes, please contact the Studio office as soon as possible. Written notice (email) is required to be released from any further financial obligation.

Tuition is due on the first business day of the month. A $20 late fee will be assessed to payments received after the due date. Please contact the Studio office as soon as possible if you cannot meet the deadline.

Cash, debit/credit card or automatic bank draft is required. Checks are only accepted upon approval and there is an additional $5 per month charge.

Siblings receive a 25% discount on all classes, and we will be extending this discount to new competition students. (Updated 2016)

Boys receive a 25% discount on all classes. (Updated 2016)


Costumes for Recreational students will be $90 - $130 depending on the students' ages. This cost includes any accessories and tights (if required), but it does not include shoes. A deposit is required in November and the balance is due in February.
We strive to keep this cost as reasonable as possible.

Recital Fee

A $125 Recital Fee per student is charged in lieu of selling tickets. It is $65 for siblings of a registered student with a maximum $240 per family. This fee is paid 2 installments - December & April. Please contact the Studio Office if you'd like your recital fee prorated and included in your monthly tuition. NOTE: Competition students are exempt from this annual fee. (Updated 2016)
