Flexibility & Strengthening  45 minute class/$42 per month, billed quarterly

Duet

$22.00 per student, per lesson  

Trio

$20.00 per student, per lesson  

Small Group

Recital

Each class requires a recital costume purchase; deposits are due at the end of the first term. Our end-of year recital (2-3 shows) is tentatively scheduled for the first weekend in May. All families will receive 2 FREE tickets to our Spring Performance.

 


Tuition

Our school year is divided into four quarters for tuition purposes only. Quarter payment dates are specified on our website (cccentreofdance.com).

Once students have registered they have made a commitment for the entire year. If a student decides to drop his or her class(es) after the first quarter has ended, he or she will be required to pay for completed class(es), as well as costumes, which will have been ordered by that time.

There is a $20 non-refundable registration fee per student ($25 after August 15). Tuitions amounts above are base amounts and do not reflect available discounts.

 

Discounts

We offer two types of discounts:

1. Advance payment. Pay the year's tuition by the first week of classes and you'll receive a discount. For instance, tuition for a 60 minute class is $50 per month, which is $400 per year; pay in advance, and the tuition is discounted to $380.

2. Multiple classes. This discount applies whether you have one student taking two or more classes or two or more students each taking one or more classes. An example: You are paying tuition for two 60 minute classes; the base tuition for each is $50 per month, which comes to $100 per month. However, the multiple classes discount reduces the combined tuition to $93 per month. Note: This discount does NOT apply to private lessons.

And of course you can combine both discounts to save even more! Ask us about how to calculate your discount.
