Dance School Tuition

Cost and Payments

Tuition is based on a yearly fee and is divided into nine equal payments. All nine billing months (September through May) are full payment months regardless of holiday recesses or the number of classes in the month. The registration fee will be waived/deducted for any family paying tuition in full by September 30.

Registration Fees:  $40 for a single child     $50 for a family

Tuition statements will be filed on the payment wall in the foyer every week. Payments are due on the first class of each month. Performing Arts allows a generous 14-day grace period. A five-dollar late fee will be added to every payment received after the 14thday of each month. Most families pay by check as cash receipts will not be given.

Checks are made payable to Performing Arts. If you wish to pay by credit card, you may do so at the Studio B cash register.

Please return the statement and envelope with your payment to ensure proper credit. Place payments in the kiosk payment slot in the center foyer, not on the back wall. Month payments are non-refundable and cannot be prorated. Students can make up missed classes in any other scheduled class in the same subject or level in the first semester only. Full attendance is expected in the second semester. No tuition deductions will be made for missed classes.

There is a charge of $25 for all returned checks.

Costume Fees

  • Costume deposits are $50 per costume, payable at any time before November 15.

Otherwise, costumes will be ordered and you will be responsible for costume fees.
  • Costume balances are due in April, as is the total costumer cost (generally between $65 and $125), minus the initial $50 deposit. Total costume costs include the costume, tights, gloves, trims, bows, extra sequins, headpieces, special shoes, small props, etc.
  • Alterations are the responsibility of the school; however, you may be asked to perform minor strap sewing or other slight adjustments.
