All of our dancers have the opportunity to perform on stage each year in our spring recital. There is a $60 recital tech fee due January 31st for all enrollees for the Spring recital. Spring recitals will be held at the Lincoln Center and the recital fee helps to cover the costs associated with the rental of the theatre and production of the show. Tickets can be purchased from the Lincoln Center Box Office.
I understand that by enrolling my child/ren in dance class, I am committing to pay for costumes for their performance in the spring recital. To that end, there will be a costume fee per class posted in January. Costume Fees will be due February 28th. The fee will be $75 for all classes, except BMP which is $85. For the vast majority of classes, this fee will be sufficient but in a few cases, such as BMP
costumes, there may be a remaining costume balance which would be due in February. Dancers will not receive their costumes until all balances are paid in full.
**Ballet masters costumes may run on a different fee structure. Dancers on pointe will have an additional $85 costume fee.
***A $10 late fee for each posted costume will be assessed if paid later than March 11th.***
Dancers will not receive their recital costumes until balances are paid in full.
- BMP Costume – $85
- Pointe Costume – $85
*All BMP dancers are required to take a minimum of 2 classes.
*If a dancer is new to pointe, they take the class(es) for their age/ ability.
Teachers may move students after the first week or two.
- 3% off tuition for all check/cash payments, this applies for Monthly Pay and Semester Pay.
- 4 classes: 10% off 4th class, 5+ classes: 15% off 5th+ class
(standard rates apply to first 3 classes)
- Dancers with 8+ hours of class per week pay a flat discounted rate.
- Families with 2 or more dancers in the same family enrolled in 5+ classes each per week will also receive a flat discounted rate.
*All costume and tech fees are due as scheduled, unless they too are paid ahead.
There are no refunds or credits for classes missed or for classes which fall on a holiday. As appropriate and necessary, we do schedule make-up classes when classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, etc (up to 2). We do apologize but we are unable to allow a student to attend a different class as a make-up, since classes are both age and choreography specific. However, in some instances, we may be able to schedule a private make up session if desired. We ask, if at all possible, that you notify the Studio West Dance Center office if your child will not be attending a scheduled class.
Please call 970-225-1611 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to report absences.
Unless specifically stated as a dance Session, the dance program in which you are enrolling your child is an on-going 10 month program (approx mid-August through mid-June) and is not a “session”.
