These events require an additional sign up to your child's regular classes and many are open to the general public.
The Children's & School Division
Managing a family's budget is tough work, so we have revamped our tuition model so that you can expect the same monthly tuition all year. You will no longer see recital costume or tight fees assessed to your account in February and March. Just the same amount, so it's easier on your pocket book.
Ten-month costume-inclusive tuition package includes:
- one costume per class for the June Recital. If you are not able to make the performance your child will still receive a costume
- 1-2 pair of tights (as needed) for your costume (limit 1 per color needed)
- a costumer for your child who will do measurements, sizing, and ordering
- Participation in our in-studio dress rehearsal with dance friends for performing & non performing dancers.
If you are enrolling later in the year to the Children's or School Division, you will need to make up the previous month’s costumes allocation. This is can be done in 1 lump sum at the time of registration. ($10 per mo./per dancer) or we can divide the total amount out over the remaining months of the school year. Thank you in advance for your understanding. If needed other payment plans can be arranged on an individual basis.
In order to receive your costume, you must commit to the full ten-month season. Any dancer needing to withdraw for any reason before the season ends you may elect to forfeit the costume. If the withdraw happens after costumes have been ordered (with the Manufacturer) the remaining balance of the costume will be due upon withdraw in one lump sum. Every effort will be made to cancel the order; however, this isn’t always possible. The previous payments will be forfeited, however the remaining balance will not be due. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
