Tuition & Fees
Dance Works strives to keep honest rates in every aspect of the season. We continue to work hard to keep the expense to a minimum and not over price items such as costumes and dance wear.
With the Dance Works Membership Fee you will receive discounts throughout the year, priority privileges, access to extra classes, and much more! Your membership will also cover the smaller fees due throughout the season such as Christmas Party fees, Recital fees, and give you discounts to additional events such as Pop-up Classes, Birthday Parties, Master Classes, etc. Dance Works Membership Fee is $65.00 per family and is due annually. After Five (5) consecutive years of being a member of Dance Works you will receive the membership fee at a discounted price. The membership fee is nonrefundable or transferable. In the event any of the above events do not happen, the fees will be dedicated elsewhere at Dance Works. If you choose to leave the studio at any time during the enrollment season, the membership fee is non-refundable and not possible to defer.
Your dance tuition is based on the entire 10-month season. However, it has been split evenly into 9 monthly payments for your convenience. There are 34 weeks between September 12, 2020 and June 18, 2021.
Tuition is due the 1st of each month.
If your monthly tuition is not paid on time, a late fee of $10.00 will automatically be posted to your account on the 10th of the month. If tuition is still not paid by the 20th of the month, your dancer will not be permitted to dance until your account is brought up-to-date. If you start your class(es) in the middle of a month, the tuition will be pro-rated and the next month’s tuition will be due on the 1st. Your final season payment is due in May. For accounting purposes, the June half month tuition is divided evenly and added to each of the 9 month payments. All payments are final and non-refundable.

We do offer a multi-class discounted rate which includes siblings and immediate family members. Families of multiples (twins or triplets) are
offered an additional discounted rate. Please contact us for more details. Additionally, we also offer a prepayment discount of one free month if you choose to pay your season tuition in FULL, in advance, in the month of September. We are grateful for military service however, due to our affordable pricing, we cannot offer a military discount at this time.
Additional costs beyond tuition may occur throughout the season. All dancers must have the necessary assigned dancewear and shoes for
their classes. A Costume per dance class is required for the recital/production. If your dancer is accepted into the Dance Company or commits to attending dance conventions, there will be additional costs involved. If your dancer receives a main character role in the production, there are additional costs associated with that opportunity. Please see specific events/departments for more information.
We ask all our families to make payments in a timely manner to avoid late fees. We are a family owned and operated business, and although
our studio is a place of fun, it is still a necessity to be run as a place of business.
ALL payments are final and non-refundable.
All tuition is automatically posted to your Dance Works online account and due the 1st of each month. There are many convenient ways that you can pay your dance tuition. The most convenient is via your online Dance Works account. (See Dance Works On-Line account for more details.)

DANCE WORKS ON-LINE ACCOUNTS
The Dance Works On-Line System allows families to access their entire season of tuition history, studio fees, and payments from the comfort of their own home or on the go. All current families at Dance Works have an account and can access this with their email address and a personal password.
Understanding your Account
Everyone is encouraged to use their on-line account and become familiar with the user friendly convenient set up. If you have a problem or need help navigating the system, we would be happy to assist.
The information on the online account is what we use to contact you and rely on it to be complete, updated, and correct. Please ensure you have all your correct information on file including current address, phone numbers, and emergency contacts. Each dancer MUST have an emergency contact name and phone number on file. The system has many positive features including the capability of having multiple email addresses – so everyone can stay informed.
The family account can have multiple dancers attached to the family profile depending on how many dancers are taking classes. Please be sure your dancers profile has their name spelled correctly. This information is referenced throughout the season for texts such as the recital program. There is also an option to add a photo of your dancer. This is very useful for our staff since we have over 300 dancers at Dance Works. This feature allows us to recognize each dancer and learn names a lot faster, especially for those teachers who may not teach your dancer each week, but will see them at larger Dance Works events.
You can access your account at any time to see the items posted such as: tuition, dance wear charges, and costumes. You can also pull up a list of charges due in the next 30 days to ensure you are up to date with all the expected due dates.
