Adult Dance

(ages 18 and up)

We offer a variety of classes for adults who have danced before, are just starting out or are somewhere in-between. Our Adult Dance class is an intermediate/advanced Jazz-style class with some ballet and lyrical mixed in. Adult Ballet is a mixed level class, and Adult Tap is offered for both beginner and intermediate/advanced. It’s never too late to start! We also offer an intermediate/advanced Adult Hip Hop class during the summer dance session.

Special class discounts:

Pay for the full year up front and receive 5% off. Cash/Check only accepted for this discount to apply and the tuition must be paid before the dancer’s first class. There will be no refunds if you choose to pay annually, so please plan accordingly. *As Apprentices already receive a monthly discount, they do not qualify for this paid in full discount.

A non-refundable $35 registration fee ($25 before 7/1), $70 max per family ($50 before 7/1), is due with the application to cover the cost of setting up and maintaining student accounts.

*Please note: When choosing to pay monthly, tuition is calculated by the number of classes per year then divided into 9.5 payments for September-June, with May and June posted and due together as 1.5 months to allow enough time for balances to be taken care of before the end of the year. Calculating tuition this way makes it easier for you to remember the amount each month whether there are 4 or 5 weeks in the month and also for us to keep track of payments, saving a lot of time for everyone!

If a dancer misses a class for any reason, he or she may make this class up at a later time with permission from the teacher. Make-ups are not allowed during the month of June as classes are primarily putting the finishing touches on recital pieces.

Refer new dancers and save!

When one of our current dancers refers a friend to the studio, each family will receive a $25.00 credit! This credit will be applied to each account when the new dancer has been enrolled for 3 full months. Don’t forget to note who referred you in your registration to ensure the credit is received!

Recital Video Download Fee

In previous years, we were unable to provide the DVD quality we’d like to and a digital download provides the high quality we are striving towards while also making the video more accessible and affordable. The fee for the digital download is just $8 and will be charged with May & June tuition. A link for all 4 shows will be emailed to you that you can view and download to your computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. You can still purchase a physical copy of the DVD if you’d like, for $22 (discounted $8 for the digital fee already paid) for one show and $5 per each additional show.

Recital Costume Fee

Costume fees for Recital are $70 per dance. In November, a non-refundable $35 costume deposit is due. The balance is due in January and is determined according to each class. One pair of tights per dancer is included in the costume fee.

Payment Policy

Payment is due in full on the first of every month. Payments not received by the 10th of the month will be assessed a $10 late fee. A credit card is required to be on file for all accounts. If you would like to pay by cash or check, please choose the E-payment schedule option “Do Not Bill- backup card”, otherwise your card will be charged on the 1st of each month. All unpaid accounts will get their cards charged on the 20th of the month for the outstanding balance plus $10 late fee. Cash or check is accepted during class hours only via the tuition box outside of Studio A, or check payments may be mailed to our PO Box address. Credit cards accepted online only. There is a $35.00 returned check charge for any checks returned by the bank.

Dropping/Changing Classes

Need to drop a class, add a class, or switch classes? Written or email notice is required by the 20th of the month to avoid being charged tuition for the following month. This allows us time to offer that class space to another student. Students will be charged monthly tuition until written notice is given to drop a class. Any dancer that doesn’t attend class for 2 months will be dropped from the roster, however, the unpaid tuition will still be due. Any dancer that drops from classes or the studio will forfeit any costumes or fees they have previously paid.

No refunds will be given for snow days, holidays, family vacations or other missed classes. Please contact the studio for opportunities to attend makeup classes. Registration and costume fees are non-refundable. Costumes will only be given to dancers that perform in the recital.

Dress code- Dance is a discipline and that begins with the way a dancer dresses for class.  Therefore, it is very important for dancers to follow dress code.  All dancers must wear hair neatly up in a ponytail, out of his or her face. No jewelry should be worn to class. Stud earrings are allowed in pierced ears.  Dancers ages 10 and must bring a water bottle with them to class. Ballet shoes should have a stretch binding, eliminating the need for the drawstring.You can find all items you need at the two dance stores listed below:
