Welcome From Marti

Thanks to all of you for making our 2016 shows a huge success! All of the dance students did a terrific job in the shows. I hope all of the students and parents enjoyed the shows. The registration forms do not have a predetermined class schedule for the year. Unlike many dance schools, I place all of our students in every class. When we develop the classes, we do our best to place a student based on dance experience, and we try to accommodate the student's other activities as much as possible. I meet with all of the instructors about placement for each student. The older students are placed by their level of dance experience and not by age and grade in school.

Please indicate on the back of the registration form any scheduling considerations your student may have. You will receive a notice of the day and times of the classes, before August 1. If the assigned day and time does not work, please email me. Please make sure to send your email address on the registration form. I send notices every two months with information on what is occurring at the studios. Please use my email address as much as possible: martidance@aol.com. I have had some parents ask if we can have private, semi-private, or three or four student size classes. If anyone is interested in these types of classes, please contact me. I look forward to seeing all of our students in September.


Providing a Variety of Dance Classes, Including Jazz and Irish Dance

Annual Tuition

Annual tuition fees are based on classes meeting weekly for ten months, excluding school holidays. Tuition is discounted based on the total number of classes taken by all the students in the family. Classes that run for 90 minutes are charged an additional $300 for the year. Tuition this year was increased by only $1 per class, and we added an extra class session in August. Tuition is payable quarterly, for one or two classes. Tuition is payable monthly, for families registering for more than two classes. You may pay in advance for the whole year, every six months, or every two months.

After you register, we will send a confirming notice with your class schedule and fees. Family members can combine their class enrollments to take advantage of discounts. Total annual tuition does not include the charge for the August classes. Classes that run for 90 minutes are charged an additional $300 for the year. Your August supplement is included in the payment due September 1. Please indicate on your registration form if you would like monthly billing; monthly payments are not available for one or two classes. Tuition fees do not include costumes for the annual show, which are billed separately, or tickets for the annual show, which are available for purchase starting on June 1. Your class assignment notice will contain a complete payment schedule for the year. Payments received after the first day of the month due are subject to a $10 late fee, so please pay on time.
