What’s a registration fee?
During the fall/winter/spring session, we charge a $30.00 non-refundable
membership fee. It is charged annually when you register, and covers all students in your family.
What if my child doesn't like the class? How do we withdraw? Can we get a refund?
If, after your child’s first class, you decide to withdraw, we will refund all your money.
After that, we can issue a refund, provided that you have given us a withdrawal form and two weeks notice.
Tuition will continue to be charged to your account until two weeks after a withdrawal form is received!
(Withdrawal slips may be obtained from the front desk.)
We automatically assume that you will continue taking classes from late August all the way to June. Tuition will continue to be charged to you unless a withdrawal notice is given to the front desk.
Can I get a refund if my child misses a scheduled class?
No, there are no refunds for missed classes. However, he/she can make up the class at another time. Please schedule make-up classes in advance
so we can make sure there is space available.
How much is tuition?
The discounted tuition schedule is based on the number of class minutes your family takes (includes all members within the immediate family). The more classes you take, the less your hourly rate becomes!

Fall/Winter/Spring General Information
When and how do I pay?
You can pay online after selecting your class! You can use Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. It’s safe, convenient and saves you time. You can also stop in with a credit card, cash or check.
Due dates will be posted in the studio. WE DO NOT SEND paper statements. However, we can send you e-mail reminders if you give us your e-mail address. LATE FEES ARE $10.00. RETURNED CHECK FEES ARE $25.00.
Is there a recital at the end of the year?
Yes... But we don’t call it “recital.” It’s our Spring Showcases! Our goal is to provide a fun production that will entertain everyone! There are five different shows, all on the same weekend, held in June.
Of course, participation is optional. More information can be found on our Spring Showcase page.
What do they wear to class? Where should I buy dancewear and shoes?
At Dance Etc., our students follow dress codes. This is for safety and comfort of the dancer/tumbler, while honoring the traditions of the discipline. On our class schedule,
you will find a list of what you will need for each class.
Our convenient dancewear and gift shop, located in our lobby, offers competitively priced leotards, tights, shoes, and more.
Our shoes are of great quality and are less expensive than what is available at the large retail stores.
Our friendly staff can assist with finding the appropriate outfit and sizes.
