Danspace 2021-2022 Registration and Tuition Information
Our school year is divided into 2 semesters:
Fall (September 13, 2021 – February 5, 2022) & Spring (February 7, 2022 -June 11, 2022)
Tuition is due in full by the start of each semester.
Students enrolling after the start of the semester will pay prorated tuition and the amount is due by the first class.
2021/2022 Tuition Schedule
1x per week $340
2x per week $654.50
3x per week $930.75
4x per week $1207
5x per week $1466.25
There will be two performance opportunities during the school year, one in the fall semester (Nutcracker Experience, optional) and one in the spring semester (Dance Party Week, not optional as it is part of the culmination of the year-long program). There will be a $25 costume fee for each performance opportunity and Danspace will email each class at the start of each semester with performance information and when to pay this fee. Additionally, the Nutcracker experience will have a separate participation fee to support rehearsals that are held outside of schedule classes. Details to come in September.
We currently accept payment in the form of a personal check or electronic check from your bank or online with a credit card. If you would like to pay with a credit card, a 4% convenience fee is added to your tuition amount.
If you are submitting a check, please print your child’s full name and class in the memo line and sign the check. Please do not write over the routing/account number or the check will be returned with a request to rewrite the check.

We expect to start the fall semester with in-person classes, following County health guidelines and regulations.
Serendipity and Pre-Ballet classes have an option for in-person instruction (limited class size) or Virtua instruction.. There is no hybrid option for this age group.
Ballet 1 to Ballet 4/5 will meet in person for classes, we do not yet know if that will be in small pods or as a full class. We will offer the option for virtual only participation if requested. The safety of the students is our priority and we will base instruction formats with County guidance and input from our families.
You must be a registered student with Danspace to participate in any class, either on site or virtually.
Registration should be completed by providing Danspace with a Registration Form and tuition for the semester or full year of classes before the first day of class.
During the school year you have 3 classes to decide if enrollment is suitable. If you decide not to return, you will pay only for the classes your child attended. After the third class, there are No Refunds. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a refund.
If you know you will be absent from a class, please email email@example.com to let us know the date(s) you will be absent. Contact the front desk to schedule a make-up class during the semester in which the absence occurred. No make-ups will be scheduled during the final 3 weeks of the spring semester. Classes are not transferable. Three make-ups are permitted per semester.
