TUITION:

TUITION IS BASED ON 28 LESSONS PER YEAR. IT IS A YEARLY TUITION, NOT MONTHLY. YOU CAN PAY MONTHLY BY BREAKING DOWN YOUR YEARLY TUITION IN 10 PMTS, BUT TUITION IS NOT BASED ON A MONTHLY AMOUNT OF CLASSES– IT IS BASED ON A YEARLY AMOUNT OF 28 CLASSES. IF SNOW DAYS, BRING YOUR LESSONS BELOW 28, THEN THAT CLASS WILL BE MADE UP. IF A CERTAIN DAY PER WEEK GETS OVER 28 LESSONS, A MAKE-UP WILL NOT BE GIVEN UNLESS THEIR AMOUNT GOES BELOW 28 LESSONS. *FIRST/LAST PMT ARE DUE UP FRONT AND WILL NOT BE REFUNDED AFTER JANUARY 1ST.

IF THE STUDIO IS CLOSED FOR ANY REASON BESIDES WEATHER, VIRTUALLY DELIVERING YOUR CLASS IS AN OPTION 🙂


ATTENDANCE:

PLEASE CALL THE STUDIO IF YOUR CHILD IS GOING TO BE ABSENT FOR ANY REASON OR EMAIL ATTENDANCE@DANCEATTITUDESNJ.COM

MAKE UP CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE TILL FEB 1ST.

ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND CLASS REGULARLY AND TO BE ON TIME. ANY ABSENCE FROM CLASS HAMPERS A STUDENT’S PROGRESS AND IMPEDES THE GENERAL PROGRESS OF THE GROUP.

WE CANNOT MAKE-UP CLASSES DUE TO WEATHER UNLESS IT PERSISTS!


RECITAL:

WE EXPECT OUR RECITALS TO BE THE THIRD FULL WEEKEND IN MAY (21ST – 22ND) 2022 INDOOR OR OUTDOOR!!!

BASED ON PREVIOUS YEARS, DRESS REHEARSALS FOR RECITAL WILL BE ONE OR THREE WEEKS BEFORE RECITAL. YOU WILL USUALLY HAVE ONE DAY OF DRESS REHEARSAL UNLESS YOU ARE IN MULTIPLE CLASSES. DRESS REHEARSAL USUALLY RUNS LESS THAN 2 HOURS.

SIBLINGS WILL BE IN SEPARATE RECITALS. SOME COMPLIMENTARY TICKETS WILL BE GIVEN FOR THE SECOND RECITAL IF YOUR CHILDREN ARE COMPLETELY SPLIT UP.

HIP HOP DANCES MAY BE SPLIT FROM YOUR REGULAR DANCES.  2 YR OLDS DO NOT PERFORM A DANCE IN OUR ANNUAL RECITAL.

OUR ANNUAL RECITAL IS PART OF YOUR CHILD’S TRAINING, (DANCING IS A PERFORMING ART). STUDENTS LEARN COOPERATION, STAGE DIRECTION, TO OVERCOME SHYNESS, AND TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES. PARTICIPATION IS MANDATORY. ALL STUDENTS ARE OBLIGATED TO PURCHASE A COSTUME FOR EACH CLASS.


RECITAL COSTS:

Recital Charge – There is a Recital fee for all students! This is a $75 fee for the first student in your family, and a $35 charge for each additional student! This fee covers a recital t-shirt, video, some pictures from the stage! This fee is NON-refundable if you leave DA and will be charged to your account January 1st. This is in addition to the Membership Fee taken at registration!

**PLEASE NOTE – IF YOU COMPLETE A SHORT TERM CLASS AND THEN MOVE INTO A FULL TERM RECITAL CLASS IN DECEMBER OR YOU SIMPLY START A RECITAL CLASS AFTER DEC 1ST, YOU WILL BE CHARGED THE RECITAL FEE!

THE AVERAGE COSTUME COST THIS YEAR IS APPROXIMATELY: $95- $145 FOR RECREATIONAL STUDENTS.

**NOTE- COSTS ABOVE ARE JUST AN ESTIMATE BASED ON YEARS PRIOR.

***RECREATIONAL CLASSES – WE BREAK DOWN THE COSTUME CHARGES INTO 2 PAYMENTS FOR YOU. AN $80 COSTUME DEPOSIT (FOR EACH COSTUME) FOR RECREATIONAL STUDENTS IS DUE BY OCTOBER 15TH. THIS 1ST COSTUME DEPOSIT IS ONLY REFUNDABLE UP TO NOVEMBER 1ST. THE SECOND & LAST NON-REFUNDABLE COSTUME PAYMENT IS THE BALANCE AND DUE BY JAN 1ST.

****All Ballet/Jazz/Tap/Hip Hop COMBO classes- Kindergarten thru 2nd graders will have 2 costumes for 3 dances. One will be a ‘SINGLE’ costume used for one dance and then one costume will have two pieces to create two different looks for the 2 other dances. This will result in TWO deposits of $80 each for these classes! *SOME CLASSES WILL RECEIVE A 3 -N- 1 COSTUME AND USE IT FOR ALL THREE DANCES.

Example- A Ballet/Jazz/Tap Combo class does 3 dances in the recital (Ballet, Jazz and Tap)– One costume may be used solely for Ballet and then One costume will be used for Jazz and Tap. The costume used for Jazz and Tap, will use the same bodysuit but have two different bottoms and maybe even different accessories to make them look different. We do this to save our customers the trouble of paying for 3 separate costumes while still allowing their child to perform 3 dances in our annual recital. *SOME CLASSES WILL RECEIVE A 3 -N- 1 COSTUME AND USE IT FOR ALL THREE DANCES.

STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO GET THE CORRECT SHOES TO WEAR FOR THE ANNUAL RECITAL AND IN CLASS.
TICKETS WILL BE APPROXIMATELY $26.00 PER TICKET AND TICKET SALES ARE USUALLY DONE THROUGH A LOTTERY BLOCK SYSTEM. THIS PAST YEAR, IT WAS OPEN SEATING (NO LOTTERY) AND PRICES WERE LOWER!

LATE FEE CHARGES-

PAYMENTS ARE DUE THE 1ST CLASS OF EACH MONTH.

ALL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE A CREDIT CARD ON FILE. IF TUITION IS NOT PAID BY THE 15TH, YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED.

SAME AS THIS PAST YEAR, THERE IS A 2% LATE FEE. THIS LATE FEE WILL BE CHARGED ON YOUR ACCOUNT FOR ANY UNPAID BALANCE ON THE 20TH OF EACH MONTH. OUR COMPUTER SOFTWARE WILL AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE THIS FEE!
