On the 15th autopay will process for the amount of tuition or the account balance (whichever is SMALLER).
Spring Showcase costumes are $90 per class for Mini-Senior dancers. Preschool costumes are $60 per costume as these classes have two “debut” dances in the show. Costume fees will be charged to accounts on October 1. A 20% late fee will apply if not paid in full on or before November 15.
