Tuition is paid on a monthly basis with the exception of Adult Ballet which will be on a drop-in basis. Classes are offered year-round and tuition is due the 1st of each month. A late charge of $20 per month will apply for tuition not received by the 10th of the month. Missed classes will not be refunded for any reason. Makeups are available in a class one level down from your students’ current level. Tuition will be prorated if joining a class mid-month. We reserve the right to cancel any class that does not meet minimum enrollment requirements.

Each class level’s tuition fee is calculated on an average of four weeks of lessons per month. Tuition for months that contain more or less weeks of instruction will not be adjusted, as these variations have been taken into account. Tuition for August and September is to be paid in one prorated payment due August 1st. Tuition for May and June is to be paid in one prorated payment due May 1st.
