Our all inclusive membership is a yearly rate broken down over months to assist our families in making it easier to pay for. This pricing is for both in person instruction and online instruction if need be.
The dance term runs from September through June. Ending your membership prior to June forfeits your amenities. Thus meaning, you will not receive your costume(s), tights, recital tickets, recital dvd, or trophy - as we will have to fill your spot with another student.
