HIP HOP DANCES MAY BE SPLIT FROM YOUR REGULAR DANCES. ACRO AND 2 1/2 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 Charge – There is a Recital fee for all students! This is a $69 fee for the first student in your family, and a $28 charge for each additional student! This fee covers a recital t-shirt, video, and some pictures from the stage and possible dress rehearsal class pics! This fee is NON-refundable if you leave DA and will be charged to your account January 1st. This is in addition to the registration/Ins Fee taken at registration!
THE AVERAGE COSTUME COST THIS YEAR IS APPROXIMATELY: $90- $125 FOR RECREATIONAL STUDENTS (THIS COST INCLUDES HEADPIECES, ALTERATIONS AND TIGHTS FOR THE RECREATIONAL STUDENT!)
**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 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!
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.
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 DONE THROUGH A LOTTERY BLOCK SYSTEM.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE WEBSITE WHEN THE WEATHER IS QUESTIONABLE!
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!
BOUNCE CHECK FEE:
THERE WILL BE A $25.OO FEE FOR BOUNCED CHECKS AND ABOVE LATE POLICY WILL APPLY AS WELL.
WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE, TRUST, SUPPORT, AND CONFIDENCE. WE KNOW YOUR CHILDREN ARE YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION AND WE THANK YOU FOR ENTRUSTING US WITH THEM. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. CONTINUE TO SUPPORT YOUR CHILD AND WANT THE BEST FOR HIM/HER IN ALL THEIR FUTURE ENDEAVORS.
