Policies & Tuition
- All families must have a credit card on file through our online account management software (JackRabbit). When you register for classes, please make sure to include this information. (If for some reason you need to pay by check/cash, please email Mary so your account can be noted.)
- A $25 late fee will be assessed if tuition is not paid on time.
- All tuition payments must be paid up to date prior to recital. If tuition is not up-to-date, the dancer will not be allowed to participate in the recital.
- If there is a financial hardship, please contact Mary directly to see what other options are available.
Paying Tuition by Session
If paying your tuition in full each session, the first class is full price and each additional class will be 10% off. The discount is given from highest to lowest price class. There is no discount for private or semi-private classes. You will receive an invoice prior to credit card being charged.
Paying Tuition by Month
If paying for your tuition each month, all classes are regular price. There is no discount given for multiple classes, private or semi-private classes. Your account will be charged the first Friday of each month except for the September payment, which will be charged once you are invoiced/registered.
Paying Tuition by Year
A 5% total discount will be given if tuition is paid in full for the year at the time of registration.
We offer a sibling discount of 10% off for the second child in a family. For families of 3 or more, please contact the studio for your discount. Discounts are also available in the various payment options mentioned above.

As teachers we like to see the progress our dancers are making or where they may need to focus. If you attend competition, you should submit a feis log in December and then again after the spring feis season. If there is a need for more, you will be asked for it.
Download/Print Feis Log
It is necessary for dancers to practice their material at home. This log is for the dancer's use, and we hope by tracking their time and what they are practicing, it will help them improve. Dancers are welcome to turn in their practice log to their teacher.
