Secure payment information

Tuition is due the first of the month. For your convenience we do accept cash, check and credit / debit cards and have auto-debit available. Tuition unpaid by the tenth of the month is subject to a late fee of $10. To reduce late fees, we will require credit cards on accounts which have been 15 days late more than three times.

Stay hydrated while dancing

We have a water cooler which is free for students and parents, but you must bring your own water bottle. We no longer offer plastic cups because people were wasting them and leaving them all over the studio.
