Registration

One time $20 Registration Fee on all new accounts

Most classes have ongoing open enrollment and drop-in, which means dancers can start anytime. You can register online or in person. Check out the Classes/Schedule page for links.

PAYMENT

MONTHLY TUITION: Due the 1st of every month. Monthly Tuition consists of a fixed monthly charge. Occasionally there are 3 or 5 classes in one month, but on average there will be 4 classes per month and the monthly charge will not change throughout the year. Tuition is not a pay by class rate and will not be pro-rated due to vacations, holidays, or absences. There is no tuition adjustment made for missed lessons. This includes classes missed or canceled due to bad weather. Make up classes are available and must be made up during the same month. May be paid by cash, check, card and can be set up as automatic payments.

DROP IN FEES: $15 for a single class, paid at the time of class (Synergy Too not available for drop-in or rates.) Punch Cards are also available in the amounts of $135 for 10 classes or $250 for 20 classes, punch cards are good for one year from purchase date and can not be used for special workshops, intensives or master classes.
