Payment Policy

Tuition at DanceDelaware is based on a ten-month class schedule, running September through June, payable monthly. The September payment is due at the time you register. Tuition payments from October through May are due at the time of the first class of each month. Our May and June payments are combined and due by May 15th.

If choosing to pay by automatic payment, tuition payments are processed by the 6th of every month. Also, if you are choosing to pay by automatic payment your costume fee and recital fee will be processed on the dates stated in the DD Studios Handbook which you will receive by September 1st. Tuition is paid via auto draft from a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover), debit card, or bank draft from a checking or saving account. If opting for automatic payment, families must submit a credit card or bank draft information form available here: Automatic Payment Authorization Form

A non-refundable registration fee of $20 per student or $30 per family is payable upon registration.

A $15 late fee will be charged if tuition is not received by the 15th of the month. If your tuition payments are in arrears of two months, your child will not be able to dance with us until tuition is up-to-date.

A $35 fee will be charged for any check returned by the bank. Receipt of a second returned check will require cash payments for all future transactions. If collection is necessary, parents/guardians are responsible for collection fees, court costs, etc.

Please note: there’s no such thing as “taking a month off” and there will be no prorate, reduction or refund on tuition for any reason. Your position in class is reserved for you, whether you attend or not. Therefore, consistent and equal tuition payments must be made each month regardless of your attendance.

Parents/guardians who wish to withdraw a student from our school MUST DO SO IN WRITING. You are financially responsible for tuition payments up to the time that the letter is received by our office.

All payments to DanceDelaware are non-refundable.

Improved Physical Health

Dancing is a highly physical activity, and kids who take dance lessons regularly should expect to see a significant improvement in their overall physical health. Regular dance practice can increase your child’s flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina.

Socialization Benefits

Dancing is a highly social activity. According to “FamilyTalk Magazine,” dance lessons can help children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends.

Educational Benefits

Becoming a skilled dancer requires practice, discipline and focus, skills that can be useful in other areas of your child’s life. Dance lessons can help to spark creativity in young children and help them to develop an appreciation for the arts.

Improved Self-Esteem

As children adjust to the movements and postures required in dance, they begin to get a better sense of their bodies. As they become more comfortable in their own skin, their confidence and self-esteem also improve.
