Payment Policy

Tuition is due and payable in full at the first class of each term. The registration fee is due at the time of registration (unless pre-registration was paid at recital).

(via credit/debit authorization ONLY)
50% due at first class of each term (terms begin August 29, November 21, and February 27)
25% due on the 1st day of each subsequent month in the term (October/November, January/February, April/May)

A 18% interest fee may be added to outstanding balances each month. The student cannot begin the next term unless all prior tuition and interest is paid.

There is a $40 fee for all returned payments. If your account is sent to collections or small claims, you are liable for all expenses.

Recital Costumes

Our end-of-year recital is a fun-filled, exciting production for all of our students. It allows your child to use their new dance skills and gives them a chance to acquire another essential skill—performance.  The dates of the recital academic year 2015-2016 are Saturday, June 4, 2016 and Sunday, June 5, 2016.  Dress rehearsals are tentatively scheduled for June 2nd and 3rd at the Mitby Theater located within Madison College 3550 Anderson ST Madison.

Costume Deposits: In December, a costume deposit of $50 is due for each recital costume to be ordered. This deposit amount is an estimate of the average price we expect to pay for a costume in your child’s age range. Please note adult sized costumes are significantly more expensive. Costume deposits are due before orders are placed.  Orders placed January 2017.

Costume Balances: Total costume prices vary, depending on the age of the child. The final cost for each class is determined by the costume cost plus accessories, an administrative service charge, and sales tax. The costume deposit paid is subtracted from the total cost as determined above and the balance is billed at a later date.

Costume balances are due before the costumes can be delivered. The student will not be able to participate in the recital if the costume balance is not paid in full by May 15.

Costume orders are non-refundable.
