All recital costumes will be kept within these prices. Competitive costumes may be slightly more expensive and those fees will be due in the spring before costumes are handed out. Sessional classes do not require a costume. Dancers taking two ballet classes will only be charged for one costume. Competitive choreography classes will use the same costume as their technique class i.e.). Ballet 3 and Pre Inter ballet choreo will have the same costume. Costumes will be sent home in the spring.Costume deposits are non refundable.

Without all cheques (including your costume fees) your spot will not be held.

Overdue accounts will be subject to a 10% charge of the total balance after 30 days. If an account becomes two months overdue the dancer will not be able to attend their classes and their parents will be called to pick them up.
A full month’s notice of cancellation in writing (or email) is required to withdraw from a full year class. There will be no refunds issued after March 1st as show preparations will be underway. No exceptions will be made. Sessional classes are non-refundable after the first class. The first month’s tuition, plus the registration fee and costume fee are non refundable.

If the studio needs to be closed due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather, we will do our best to schedule a make up class if your class allotment falls below the 32 guaranteed classes per season.
