Tuition is the accumulation of class rates and registration, production fees. A sessions tuition is to be paid at the time of registration. TVDA will offer payment plans upon special request but discounts do not apply to payment plans. Class rates fluctuate according to duration of session. Tuition can be paid by check, cash, paypal or credit card at the studio with a 3% charge fee.
Studio Registration Fees
There is a one time studio fee per student per studio calendar year of $20 for the to be paid with their first registration, which is not subject to any discount.
There is a Production fee per student added to each tuition for the end-of-the-year recital to be paid in full with registration and not subject to any discount. This does cover any costume fee for the show. Students who wish to perform in the recital must wear their assigned class costume and pay this fee.
TVDA does offer a variety of discounts which are posted with the class fees for each session. Eligibility for early registration discount requires that payments be paid in FULL before the session starts or postmarked and mailed within that time frame. TVDA understands that not everyone who might be interested in dance class maybe able to afford our rates. If further discount to tuition is a requirement in order to enroll a child in dance class please come talk with the studio director to discuss options.
TVDA does not prorate it’s classes. We have a cut off date for registration per-session and will not accept students after that date. Students who register for class within the window where classes are running and the cut off date will still have to pay the full class rate for the session. Please see our information about refunds.
Drop in classes
On occasion TVDA may have a guest teacher or offer a special class at a drop in rate. This is to be paid at the time of service. Balances cannot be applied to drop in classes.
Several classes are recorded and paid through class cards. The first class card is subject to the studio registration fee per student. All additional class cards through the TVDA calendar year as at its posted flat rate.
