Tuition and Fees
There is a $65 non-refundable registration fee. The Monthly tuition is $60 per month payable by automatic credit card transaction on the 1st of each month.
A $50 (non-refundable) costume deposit per style of dance is due by December 1st with a remaining costume balance due in March (The remaining balance is determined by the actual cost of the costumes and can not be predetermined. It is generally between $15 and $35 per costume) Students will not receive their costumes until their account is up to date with a -0- balance.
A Note about the costume deposit: (The payment is due in full by December 1st. Any payment received after December 1st will be assessed a fee of $25 per costume. Costumes will not be ordered for any dancer whose costume deposit has not been paid by December 16th. Payments made between the 1st and 16th that do not include the additional $25 per costume will not be accepted until full payment is made. No dancer will participate in the recital without a costume. (I realize that this sounds a little strict, but our backs are really against the wall when it comes to costume orders. If we do not get the order in in a timely manner, we may not have them in time for the recital and because most of the costumes are more than the $50 deposit, it is a very large sum for the studio to front in order to get them ordered. We try to make this as easy as possible, but there just is not much room for error)
