Costumes and Membership Fee
Recreational costumes range in price between $90 – $120 and are yours to keep!
There is a $50 costume down payment required per dance added to your 1st payment, this is the first payment towards the dancer’s recital costume. You will receive an invoice for the balance owing for the costume in February ranging from $10-$70 when costumes have arrived. We take care of alterations! Costumes are ordered by January 30th, if the dancer does not require one for reasons such as illness or injury or away for recital a parent must notify the teacher and the office before the order date. If notice is not given a costume will be ordered and you will be required to pay full fees.
There is a $15 membership fee for all dance students per family.
The costume down payment and registration fee are collected upon registration and are both non-refundable under any circumstances.

After the deadline of October 15th there ARE NO REFUNDS on classes or costume down payments under any circumstances (this includes post-dated cheques) it is too late for someone new to take a student’s space.

Credit Card Payments
After a review of our previous fiscal year, we looked intentionally at the bank/merchant fees associated with processing credit card payments. With the continued expansion of rewards type cards the cost to the merchant can be as much as 2% of the invoice. For this reason, we need to apply 2% to each invoice paid by credit.
Our primary means of communication is via email.
