FEES

Annual Registration Fee:
Our annual registration fee is $30 per student. $15 for each additional students in the same family.

YEP Costume Fee: 
For all dancers performing in our Year End Performance in June, the performance costume fee for each class is charged in two installments. A $35 deposit will be charged in November per costume; the remaining cost of each costume will be charged to accounts in February/March. Cost of each costume usually range between $40-$75 per costume. As a non-profit studio we do not make a profit on YEP costumes. Families who need assistance for costume fees can contact our admin, each year we raise a small fund to support costumes for our scholarship students.

Year End Performance (YEP) Fee:
$40 YEP fee per dancer, max of $60 per family. YEP fees help us cover the theater rental, auditorium manager, custodians, lighting and sound crew, insurance, etc. The YEP fee is non-refundable after April 1st, for families who withdraw from our program before the Year End Performance.

TUITION

Tuition is calculated by the number of hours your dancer takes on a weekly basis. Tuition is based on an annual calendar and will remain constant and consistent regardless of number of weeks in a month, scheduled breaks and/or holidays. Tuition is due and payable prior to the first class of every month. Our pricing schedule allows families the opportunity to pay monthly, biannually (September and February), or one annual payment. Paying tuition at the annual option allows you to receive a 5% discount. 

Tuition is due on the 1st of the month. Tuition is considered delinquent after a 10-day grace period and a $25 late fee will be charged to outstanding accounts on the 11th of each month. The late fee is not eligible for any discount or scholarship program. Students with a balance still owed on the last day of the month will be unable to attend classes the following month until the account is brought current.

Tuition and fees may be paid through your parent portal or in the office during office hours. The following forms of payment are acceptable: cash, check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, AMEX and bank transfers.

Should a student want to withdraw, written notice via email is due at least 7-days before the 1st of the month. Notice with less than 7-days before the 1st of the month, you will owe the next month’s tuition.

TALENT SCHOLARSHIPS

In late spring our faculty members nominate students for each of our Talent Scholarships based on the scholarship criteria. A panel of board members and community members review the nominations and select a recipient to receive the scholarship for the following year. Our Talent Scholarships vary on what they cover which can include tuition and/or other fees.

To sponsor a Talent Scholarship, please contact us for more information.
