How much do classes cost?
$40 per 4 weeks.
Tuition is due at the beginning of class on the first day of the 4 week period. See payment schedule.
The tuition fee you pay each month holds your child's place in their class. Therefore we cannot prorate your monthly fees if for any reason your child misses class, including snow days. Please understand that we provide make-up classes as a courtesy to our students. Missed lessons may be made up within one month after return to class, in an alternate class. Make-up lessons are taken in addition to regular classes and not substituted for them.
Snow days will be dictated by the school closings of Howland Local Schools.
Cash or Zelle preferred, also accepting PayPal.

In lieu of a dance recital, family members and friends are welcome to the Family Night Performance in my studio. It is a warm, casual gathering with refreshments and snacks; a time to come together to support and cheer on our dancers and show what we have learned. The costume fee is $0. The costume for the final performance is my gift to the students.
What to wear
Leotard (any color) and tights (close to your child's skin tone), ballet shoes with leather bottoms (pink preferred), and tap shoes with metal taps attached (black with velcro closure preferred, tie closure is also fine). These can be found easily at Target, Walmart, or Amazon.
Please park on my side of the street and walk your child in to class. If you are staying on site for the duration of the class, please park in the driveway.
All students, siblings, and visitors must have adult supervision at all times. Never leave a child unattended unless they are in class.
