  • We require all students to have an updated credit card on file.
    • Tuition payments are due the 1st of each month and will be automatically drafted from the card we have on file
    • Dance program runs September – June.  The program that your child is enrolled in is broken down into 10 monthly payments with no finance or interest charge. 
    • We do not freeze memberships or refund classes for missed classes. You can do a makeup class in any class for your child’s age group. 
    • You must makeup classes in a timely manner before the end of the session because they can not roll over into summer.
    • Once your child is registered, if you wish to withdraw them from classes, you must do so in writing.  This written notification must be received 30 days before your next draft date.
  • June tuition is charged as a full month although you may only have a few classes during it. The other portion of June’s tuition goes towards rehearsal and recital instead of charging an additional performance fee. 


  • All students have an account that can be accessed on our website. Use this to update your billing info, register for classes/events, and shop our online store.
  • If you filled out a paper registration form, you can use your email address to access this account
