Classes and Tuition

Tuition - Each class is based on an average of 4 classes per month.  As there are no charges for months with 5 lessons, there is no reduction in tuition for lessons missed during scheduled days off. Tuition is due the 1st of each month.  A $10.00 late fee will be added after the 10th of each month. There is an additional fee of $25.00 for all returned checks.

Studio Policies

Attendance - You have committed yourself/ your child to a dance class that is held once a week, sometimes more.  Please make sure she/he is at class each week.

Some students try to juggle sports and/or other activities and it gets very difficult when they are consistently absent. It is not fair to the other students in the class to be held back when a student to catch up on what was missed.

Attire – Students are expected to be in proper dance clothing – NO jeans, shorts, capris or t-shirts of various groups, designs, etc.  Studio dress code is:

Preschool Classes: Pink long sleeved leotard, pink footed tights, pink skirt (optional), pink ballet slippers, and white tap shoes. 

Ballet/Pointe/Lyrical: Black long sleeved leotard, pink footed tights, pink ballet slippers, (optional: pink or black leg warmers, dance skirts, and dance sweaters) NO t-shirts or sweatshirts please.

Tap/Jazz/Hip Hop: Black dance pants, black leotard, JoAnn’s Academy of Dance t-shirt or sweatshirt, tan tap shoes, tan jazz shoes, black hip hop sneakers.

Hair – Please secure hair up and away from face

Jewelry – Please no hanging jewelry.

Tardiness – Please be on time for class. Lateness not only disturbs the flow of the class, but it is disrespectful to the teacher and your fellow classmates. Be ready, with your shoes on, a few minutes before class starts.
