Class Tuition

2018 - 2019

Tuition is based on a 31-week program (with one built in snow day) and is broken down into 3 equal payments due Sept (or at sign up), Dec, and Mar. Tuition is due on the 1st of the month (every other month). If tuition is not received by the 10th of the month, then a $10 late fee is incurred. Parents wishing to pay monthly instead of quarterly may do so by arranging this at time of registration.


$30 per dancer and $35 per family. Registration fee is non-refundable and due at time of registration. First month’s payment due on or before the first class.
