Performance Fees

Dance Effects produces two annual performances, our Holiday Spectacular, and our year-end Performance in June. Performances our optional but highly encouraged. Additional performance fees include:

Holiday Spectacular: Costumes are between $35 and $50. Performance tickets are $10-$12 each. Performance photos and DVD are optional. 

Recital: Costumes are between $75 and $85 each. A different costume is needed for each class (i.e. a dancer taking 2 classes will owe between $150 and $170 for recital costumes). Performance tickets are $20. Students are not required to purchase dance photos but are asked to attend picture day regardless. Prices for photos vary depending on the package. A performance DVD is also available for purchase for $35.

Dance Fee Policy

Accepted forms of payment include Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Check, & Cash.

Note: These policies apply to our Studio Program

Payments: All accounts must have a valid credit card on file. To avoid late fees we recommend having your account set up for automatic payments. Automatic tuition payments are processed between the 1st and 3rd of each month. Tuition is due by the 10th. If tuition is not paid by the 10th of the month a $15 late fee will be charged and the credit card on file will be charged. In the event a credit card is declined you will be notified by email and instructed to update your card on file. You will not have access to your account until a new credit card is provided. 

Registration: There is a $40 non-refundable annual registration fee that applies to each family. 

Tuition: Dance tuition is calculated monthly based on the number of hours of dancer per week, per student. A 10% discount is offered to each additional child in an immediate family. Tuition is ALWAYS the same regardless of the number of classes in the month. Dance Effects does not pro-rate for holiday months as missed classes due to studio closures have already been considered when determining the tuition rates for the 2016-2017 season. Some months have 3 weeks and others have 5 weeks which averages out to 4 weeks/month over the course of our season.

Tuition will not be placed on hold or adjusted for missed classes. If a student wishes to take a break mid season and stop tuition payments their spot in class will not be held and a new registration fee will be charged upon re-enrollment. 

Make Up Policy: A missed class may be made up within 1 month of the absence by attending another class of the appropriate age/level. Refunds will not be given for missed class. 

Class Cancelation Policy: We do our very best to avoid canceling classes but occasionally things happen out of our control. In the event of a class cancelation we will do our best to notify parents as soon as possible. Refunds will not be given but dancers are welcome to attend a make up class. 

Exit Policy: A student drop form must be completed and turned into the office before the 1st of the month if a student plans to drop a class or classes, otherwise tuition will be charged for the whole month. Please contact the office to obtain a drop form.
