What are your fee policies?

Registration Fees: Each student will be charged a non-refundable annual registration fee payable in September, or upon registration. Discounts may be given for multiple students for a single family. Class fees will be higher if the registration fee is not paid. Registration Fees are $25.00 per student or $45.00 per family. There is no prorating registration fees.

Tuition: Fees for class participation may be paid by the month or by the class. Per class fees are higher for non-registered students. Monthly tuition charges are based on the entire year (September through June), billed monthly at 4 week months from September through May (including December) and 2 weeks in June. Costume Week and Picture Week classes are charged as regular classes. Classes may be cancelled at any time but classes not cancelled before the 1 st of the month will be charged for the full month. If you want to cancel a class, you must come in to the studio in person. Non-attendance in a class is NOT considered notice that you want to cancel a class.

Tuition can be paid by cash, check or credit card. RDC reserves the right to have dancers sit out of classes, without makeups if their account has outstanding balances for any charges.

Because of different school calendars, RDC does not close for a spring break and no credits will be given for school vacations or holidays. Monthly tuition rates are not affected by holidays or school vacations. When the studio is closed for the Thanksgiving weekend (Thursday, Friday & Saturday) and the Memorial Day Weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Monday), student accounts will be credited for classes missed on those days.

No credits are given for missed classes during a month that are not made up.
