  1. Semester payments – Pay in 2 equal installments – September and January * (3% discount)

  2. Annual payment – September *(5% discount)

  • Payments must be received within one week of the due date to receive the discount.

Late Tuition Payments:

If a student’s tuition is more than 30 days late, we reserve the right to ask the child to sit out of class until either a credit card is provided or an alternate payment agreement is reached. If a student’s tuition is over 60 days past due, a student will not be able to return to classes until a credit card is provided for the past due amount, and kept on file for future tuition payments.

The following fees will be applied throughout the year:

Registration Fee:

The Registration Fee is $25.00 for the first student in a family, and $5.00 for each additional sibling.

This fee will be applied when your student is registered.

Performance Fee:

A $50.00 performance fee is charged at registration if a student is enrolled in any class that will perform in the June recital.

This fee is applied to the costs Dream Studio incurs as we arrange for a performance space, lighting, sound production, staging, etc. As always, performance in our June recital is optional. Should your child choose not to perform this cost will be credited to your account.

Costume Charges:

In January, we will measure each student and order costumes for the June recital. Costumes may not be returned, (they can be exchanged for a different size), so if your child will not be performing in the recital, you need to notify the Office Manager no later than January 5. Once costumes have been ordered you are responsible for all costume charges. Costume costs vary, but you can plan on spending approximately $60 per costume. We will send you your costume invoice at the beginning of March, and full payment for costumes must be made by April 15, or your child will not be permitted to perform in the recital.
