Tuition

Fall / Spring Tuition (August-Mid May)

Tuition Rates - Tuition is based on the amount of hours a dancer takes per week for a 4 week month.
45 minutes - 1.75 hours per week = $16 per hour
2 hours - 3.75 hours per week = $14 per hour
4 or more hours per week = $13.50 per hour

To determine your monthly tuition use this equation: #of hours per week x amount per hour x 4

There is a $30 registration fee ($20 for siblings, $50 family max) for our Fall / Spring season. The registration fee is collected at the time of registration. All tuition payments August - May will be automatically debited on the 1st of each month. All customers must have a valid credit card on file. If you wish for your tuition not to be auto debited, you should pay your tuition, on-line, before the 1st of each month. If your account shows any balance greater than $0.00, on any given month, this amount will be auto debited on the 1st of the month. If your account shows a balance of $0.00 or a credit (indicated by a "-") your account will not be auto debited. Families with two or more siblings dancing will receive a 10% discount off total monthly tuition. In order to receive the sibling discount, customers must request the initial adjustment to be made either in person, over the phone, or via e-mail.  Tuition will remain the same, regardless if the month has 3 weeks, 4 weeks, or 5 weeks. Tuition payments will be due for 9.5 months, August-April and half month for May. DAW does not follow all Douglas County school closings. Please refer to our studio Important Dates and Calendar for pre-scheduled studio closings. In the case of inclement weather, we will contact customers via e-mail, and leave updates on our studio voicemail, and on our studio Facebook page. Tuition payments are non-refundable. 

Summer Tuition
For our summer classes, customers purchase a summer class card and come to the classes they want at their convenience. Class cards are available through your on-line account under On-line Store. Summer class cards will expire on the last day of summer classes for each specific session. Summer class cards cannot be used for summer master classes or any classes during the Spring / Fall season. Class cards are non-refundable, and classes not used by the expiration date will be forfeited.

Any students whose costume fees are $150 or greater, half of the total amount will be auto debited November 15th, and the remaining half will be auto debited December 15th. If you wish to pay for your costumes before the due date, please make your payment in the studio so that we can be sure that it is correctly posted to your account.
