*Students are not required to participate in the annual recital, but it is recommended.
The order in which you sign up for recital is the order in which tickets will be assigned. You may sign up for recital as early as the recital day in June. The last date to sign up for recital is December 15th. Please note that there is NO REFUND for recital once costumes are ordered in December. If the studio is unable to secure a regular recital venue due to COVID-19 or other pandemic or natural disaster, an alternate option will be chosen. This will be based on providing the best possible performance venue that takes into consideration current safety restrictions as well as customer feedback. This could mean an alternate date and/or an outdoor performance on a rented stage, or a class by class in-studio recorded recital, or in the most strict situation, a zoomed recording. Recital is a very important milestone in the year and it is our priority to provide a positive memorable and safe experience. Just like our show in 2020, we will not let our students down!
1st hour of class per week $72/month
Each additional hour per week thru the 5th hour 15% discount on additional hours
6th hour and more 32% discount on additional hours
*these are our tuition rates for either in person or virtual classes. All classes will be offered in person if possible, however, if there is a pandemic or other similar event that causes classes to be held virtually, classes will be provided via zoom and will be charged at full tuition. Classes will also be available via zoom if a dancer is experiencing symptoms or is under quarantine or is otherwise unable to attend in person.
ALTHOUGH PAYMENT IS DUE MONTHLY ON THE 1ST OF THE MONTH, IT IS BASED ON AN ANNUAL AMOUNT BROKEN DOWN INTO 10 MONTHLY PAYMENTS.

THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR SUMMER, HOWEVER WE WILL ISSUE A CREDIT ON THE ACCOUNT TO APPLY TOWARD FALL IF IT IS REQUESTED 30 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THE START OF SUMMER CLASSES.
