Contracts

Parents can choose one of three contract options: Semester, Drop-In or Unlimited

Semester Contract
You commit to a full semester of classes and we give you a discounted rate per class.  Your total balance (tuition + fees) is divided into installment payments over the course of the semester. 

Classes for Dancers ages 9 and up = $12 per class
Classes for Dancers ages 3-8 = $10 per class

Drop-In Contract
Really means no contract at all. Register and drop-In when you can. Pay $15 per class. 

Unlimited Class Contract
If you have a dancer that takes more than 3 classes per week, more than one semester a year then the Unlimited Option is for you. Dancers can attend as many classes and camps as they can fit in their schedule and parents pay a flat tuition rate each month for one year.

Unlimited Tuition for Dancers Ages 11 and up = $150 per month plus semester fees

Unlimited Tuition for Dancers Ages 3-10 = $105 per month plus semester fees

*DHDC charges a non-refundable Semester Fee each semester. The fee is $50 per new dancer, $25 per returning dancer and $15 per sibling. This fee goes towards costs related to administrative expenses, costumes and recitals.

REFUNDS AND ABSENCES

Semester Fees are non-refundable.

We do not refund tuition for absences for any reason. 
Dancers are expected to attend class regularly as teachers are booked in advance.
