MONTHLY TUITION

  • $40 per month for 45-minute classes & Semi-Private Voice Lessons
  • $50 per month for 60-minute classes
  • $60 per month for 75-minute classes & our Homeschool Dance Class
  • $70 per month for 90-minute classes
  • Any enrolled student may take additional classes for just $30 each
  • Private lessons are available for $40 per hour and can be taken in any 15-minute increment.

September tuition is due at registration. October – May tuition is due by the 1st of each month. Monthly tuition is calculated based on the entire semester and does not change depending on how many lessons are in each month. New students joining after the first class will have their class charges pro-rated from the time they join.

We now accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover, JCB and Diners Club) and encourage you to keep one on file with us. If you do, you will automatically be charged tuition within the first few days of each month. If you decide to pay by check, please make it out to Sacred Ground Dance. If you pay by cash, please have your money in a labeled envelope (Family name, amount, and what it is for). Both checks and cash can be deposited in the drop box located inside by the studio by the front desk and are due no later than the first of each month.

If at any time you would like a printed statement of your account you may request one. Any account unpaid after the fifteenth of the month will have late charges assessed for 10% of the total monthly tuition. We understand that anyone may make a late payment from time to time, but please be respectful of our late fee policy and when applicable, graciously include your late fee in your next payment.  If you make your payments by mail, be certain to allow adequate time for mail delivery.  Returned check fee is $25.00. No credit is given for student absences or inclement weather cancellation makeup classes.

 

ATTENDANCE & MAKEUPS

Students learn new technique every week, so please make every effort to be at each class and arrive on time! However, we understand that absences do occur and every student is entitled to 2 make up classes per school year.  Please make up any missed class within one month of your absence if possible. No monetary credit will be given for missed classes. Please call or email ahead to let us know you will be attending a make up class.

 

COSTUME FEES

Holiday performance costumes will utilize SGD’s Christmas Costume Closet (red tutu’s, elf hats, etc.). You may be asked to purchase something simple, like a red turtleneck or a black leotard to accompany the accessories we will provide.

For the Spring Performance, each dancer will receive a beautiful costume for each class they are enrolled in. Although costumes can get pricey, SGD tries it’s hardest to choose costumes that are more budget friendly. Your child’s teacher will let you know what the costume and the cost are. Payment is due by February 1st – if you have a credit card on file, we will add the costume cost to your February tuition.

 

OTHER FEES

We currently do not have registration or recital fees. However, we will hold a recital photo week at the end of the Spring Semester where all proceeds from photo purchases will go towards helping us offset the cost of renting the facility for our Spring Recital. By purchasing photos, you get a keepsake from your child’s year of dance and you help us continue to keep the recital free for family and friends to enjoy.

 

WITHDRAWAL POLICY

A withdrawal fee is required to pull a student from dance class. The fee is equal to your monthly tuition. You can however, give us notice 30-days prior to your cancellation and we charge the withdrawal fee at that time and continue to let you take class for those 30 days. If you withdraw in the middle of the month, you still owe your withdrawal fee even if you have already paid for that month.
