Our pricing structure is different from other places. We have been using this method for well over 10 years, and it has been great with helping families budget! While we APPEAR to be higher than other studios, we are not. We offer this as a convenience!
Tuition is ALL INCLUSIVE and includes:
*Tuition is based on 10 equal installments, which is paid monthly (this is not a monthly fee, but installment). If you start after September, the tuition will be higher based upon when you register.
*ALL Recital costumes which range from on average $75 & up based on size, etc. (depending on class; this could be anywhere from 1-3 costumes and accessories per class and this monthly installment plan helps from having to pay for costumes around the holidays, and for those who need sometime 6+ costumes, this is a HUGE help!)
*tights (this is anywhere from 1-3 or more pairs )
*4 recital vouchers per dancer (regardless if they are in one recital or both)
*recital fee (this is the cost of putting on a production, theatre rental, etc)
* 2 full color program books per dancer
* free recital recording
