1 Weekly Class = $55/month
MULTI-CLASS DISCOUNT (applies to all family members)
Tuition DISCOUNTS will automatically be calculated in the student's account.
Example: If one dancer is taking two regular weekly classes (2 hours per week), the tuition would be the same as two siblings each taking one weekly class. We calculate tuition based on the total number of classes being taken by all family members.
Tuition is Non-Refundable, Non-Transferable, and Not Prorated.
We offer UNLIMITED CLASSES & CAPPED TUITION to dancers who make our competitive company. There is an AUDITION to be part of our talented competitive company. Dancers who are NEW to the studio, may audition at any time during the season for placement onto the competitive company by calling the studio director at 727-407-7533.

We DO NOT charge a costume fee. All of our dancers are provided with a costume to wear in The Nutcracker and the Spring Showcase. Dancers must supply their own shoes and tights in accordance with the list of required attire on our website. On rare occasions, dancers may be required to purchase a small accessory or undergarment that may be needed with the costume (a clear-strap bra is one example), but this is rare.
Showcase Commitment Fee a.k.a. "Commitment Fee"
All Dancers are required to perform in The Nutcracker (or Winter Performance) as well as the end-of-year Spring Showcase. The Commitment Fee is $85/class and due on October 1st, or at time of registration if start date is thereafter. If received after October 15th, there is a $15 late fee. This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE and non-transferable and is viewed as your commitment to participation for the entire season, which ends with the Spring Showcase in June 2021. Dancers with outstanding commitment fees will not be included in performances and will be dropped from the class roster on November 1st to make space for students on the waiting list. Students who join after The Nutcracker performance must pay the Commitment Fee(s) at time of registration. If a dancer drops from a class prior to any performance (for any reason), NO REFUND will be issued.

Missing Class / Dropping a Class
To notify the studio that you will miss class due to illness or otherwise, please login to your portal. If you're sick or just have a lot of homework and cannot attend your class, please login to your dance portal and log the absence IN ADVANCE. However, all dancers MUST attend class during the two week period prior to any performance. Failure to attend class during the two weeks prior to any performance may eliminate you from the performance. If a dancer does not know the choreography well enough to perform, the studio director, at her sole discretion, may remove the dancer from such performance without reimbursement of any kind to the student/parent. Good communication is key. Competitive Level Company Dancers may not miss more than 4 classes during the dance year. If Company Dancers miss more than four classes, the dancer is required to take (and pay for) a private lesson for each additional absence. If a competitive level dancer is not executing the technical elements of the choreography properly, the studio director, at her sole discretion, may remove the dancer from such performance without penalty or compensation of any kind to the student/parent, until which time as the dancer learns and executes the choreography as required. Being removed from a performance does not remove the dancer from the competitive company. We understand that illness, injury, poor class attendance, and work ethic may hinder a dancer's ability. However, such hindrance will not be allowed to negatively affect the other participants at competition. In such a case, the competitive dancer will be worked back into competitive routines as deemed appropriate by the director.
