Registration and Tuition Information

Our school year is divided into 2 semesters:

Fall (September 12, 2022 – January 29, 2023) & Spring (January 30, 2023 – June 4, 2023)

Tuition is due in full by the start of each semester. You may schedule payments. Email to discuss.

Students enrolling after the start of the semester will pay porated tuition and the full amount is due by the first class.

2022/2023 Tuition Schedule
1x per week $374
2x per week $714
3x per week $981.75
4x per week $1258
5x per week $1572.50
6x per week $1836

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 is a $25 costume fee for each performance opportunity. Danspace will email each class at the start of the 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 scheduled classes. Details are sent via email at the start of the fall semester.

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.
