  • $50 for Two Children/Family

Monthly Fees

Tuition Fees for the year are based upon the number of hours danced per week during the nine-month school year (September to May), taking into account all holidays and school closures and averaging them through the school year. For example, dancers taking one class at one hour per week will pay $630 per year, averaged to $70 per month. Fees will be charged monthly on the first business day of the month. Payment is expected on this day unless prior arrangements have been made with the office.

A Costume Fee of $125 per year will include one (1) costume per style of dance performing in the annual May recital along with any applicable backstage care during the recital and rehearsals. These charges do not apply to sessional blocks, as they are not performing classes. For example, a student taking any ballet class and any modern class will pay $125 per discipline, for a total of $250 for the year. This fee, like tuition, is automatically split into monthly amounts unless otherwise specified by the family. If you’d like to opt out of the recital, please let the office know in writing before November 1 to avoid a costume fee.

A Memories Fee of $100 per year per family combines your recital video, a physical yearbook, and one (1) photo package for your first registered student. This fee only applies to performing classes. Additional Photo Packages will be added for each performing class the student is participating in and for other students enrolled under your family account, in the amount of $35 per package. Any additional copies of photo packages can also be ordered by contacting the office. All photo packages can be opted out at no penalty or fee, including the one provided in the Memories Fee, by sending an email to the office. Notice of opt out of any Photo Packages must be given before April 1st.

Our unlimited rate  is available for those dancing 6 hours or more each week. We hope this will continue to increase accessibility to training for our senior dancers to prepare them for education or employment in dance following graduation. This unlimited rate does not include RAD, Company, or Ensemble Fees.

Drop-In Classes and Class Passes are available for adult students. See below for rates, and purchase passes through your Studio Director Account. Buying passes will provide a 5% discount over single class drop-in fees. Adult passes purchased in advance are valid only for the season in which they are purchased and not transferable to next season.
