Tuition and Fees
Investing in Lifelong Memories
All Inclusive Pricing Examples
Each class is discounted an additional 15%. For example: a second class is 15% off, a third is 30% off, a fourth is 45% off, so on and so forth. We also offer sibling discounts and advanced payment discounts.
We’ve thought of everything and included tons of sparkle in our Premium Performance Package. All Performance Packages include the exciting opportunity to dance onstage in our annual June Recital. Learn more below.
We’re excited to offer a new and more flexible payment process for annual recital costs! In order to alleviate the stress of paying for all recital fees in one month, you’ll pay a portion of the fees monthly over the course of the season. Choose which package works best for your family.

All accounts are charged $22.50 for the first two months of tuition to capture our annual registration fee. Performance fees are not prorated for late registrations.
Additional Costs to Consider
Each class wears a beautiful costume for our annual spring ballet & recital. Each class costume is $85. If your child participates in an all ballet class for dancers over the age of 7, they will perform in our annual spring ballet. All dancers perform in our annual spring recital.
Dance Shoes and Apparel
Most students need one pair of shoes per class, a couple pair of tights, and one or two leotards (or similar dance appropriate attire).
Buying annual dance class pictures is not required. We do request the dancers show up on picture day in order to have the entire class pictured for that year. Cost varies greatly depending on picture package.
District Dance hosts two shows per year. Each shows requires the purchase of tickets for anyone attending. Tickets vary in price from about $15 – $20. Good news! Our recital DVD and 3 recital photos are included in our PREMIUM Performance Package. No need to pay separately for life-long memories of your child dancing confidently onstage!
There are no refunds for missed classes. However, if a child is severely injured or the family moves out of the state, please contact the Director, Melissa Curling, to discuss a refund for the classes that will be missed. Timely notice is expected and appreciated.
In the event of a weather cancellation or sudden teacher absence where a substitute cannot be found, the particular class will be rescheduled by the teacher. Low enrollment classes may be canceled and a refund will be issued.
Students with excessive class absences may be pulled from the ballet or recital performance with no refund. This is at the teacher’s and director’s discretion.
There are no refunds for missed classes. However, missed classes (school year term) can be made up anytime before May 1st in an age appropriate class – even if it’s a different style than what the dancer is currently enrolled in. All makeup classes must be scheduled through the front office. A maximum of 4 makeup classes are allowed during our school year term. A maximum of 1 makeup class is allowed during our summer term.
Payment Methods & Late Fees
A CREDIT CARD IS REQUIRED FOR ALL REGISTRATIONS. If you’d prefer to pay tuition by cash or check, payment must be made before it’s due date. If payment is not received by the payment due date, the credit card on file will be charged for the tuition due. We recommend paying by credit card to simplify your life and avoid late charges. Credit card payments incur an additional 3% administrative fee.
Tuition Late Fee
Tuition is due on the 15th of each month. A $15 late fee will be charged and enforced on all accounts past due, including accounts that are automatically charged. Late fee notices will be sent via email.
District Dance accepts VISA, Mastercard, cash and check. A credit card is required for all registrations. Credit card payments incur an additional 3% administrative fee.
There is a $50 discount for advance payment of tuition and performance/costume fees.
Return Check Fee: A $50 fee will be charged to your account for returned checks. This fee must be paid within one week of written notice from the Director. All future tuition payments must be made by credit card for the remainder of the year.
