Dance classes meet one time per
week from anywhere between 30 minutes and 1 1/2 hour. Time will be
determined by the type of class and level that your child is
participating in. When you register for dance you are signing
up for the entire season. Classes will run from September to May. The season is finished with a
performance of different magnitudes, depending on the studio, by all
students. This recital will take place in late May or early June.
There will also be a mandatory rehearsal that your child must attend. Good attendance is imperative. Absences and

How much will it cost?
A class could cost anywhere
from 55.00 to 130.00 dollars per month. Your total tuition will be

You will receive a discounted rate for multiple classes. Payment is
made on a monthly basis or some studios will group costs into four
tuition payments for the year. Some studios will charge a one time
registration fee of 25.00 or 30.00 dollars in addition to your tuition.
You will also need to purchase practice wear and the proper shoes for
the class that your child is taking.
In addition, studios put on a year end show in late Spring.
The dance recital is optional for your child in most studios. If your
child does perform, he/she will need to purchase a costume for each
discipline (Ballet, Jazz, Tap etc...) that your child is enrolled in. Costumes will cost approximately 60.00
dollars each. In addition, many
studios will require that you purchase tickets for the recital
performance. Dance recital is a wonderful experience for both the
parents and the child. You should make every effort to have your
