A spring recital performance fee of $100 will be billed to your account December 15th and must be paid in full by January 15th. All charges for the semester must be paid in full prior to our performances for students to participate in the show. Students are automatically enrolled in our end of semester recitals; please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are enrolled in classes but do not plan to participate in recital.
Costume Fees: A costume fee of $55 - 75 per class (for costume purchase) will be billed to your account along with the performance fees. Company dancers will be billed fees for classes that do not share costumes with competition or from the DHDC costume closet. Costume fees share the same due dates at performance fees. Purchased costumes belong to the dancer and are yours to keep.
Company Fees: Our student company has additional monthly fees to cover their additional events throughout the year. See our company pricing page for more information.
Discounts: Families with multiple students enrolled in our classes will receive 15% off of the lower tuition amount. (This discount does not apply to unlimited tuition, summer camps, or to registration/performance/company fees). Please allow a short time for fees from portal enrollment to appear on your account before submitting your payment.
Accounts on Autopay will be automatically charged on the due dates unless we are informed that you are not participating. We do not offer any refunds on annual fees.
Refunds and Absences
All registration, recital, costume, and company 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.
We do not offer make-up classes for absences.
In the event of a class cancellation due to reasons other than inclement weather, a makeup class will be offered, or your account will be credited for that individual class tuition.
Class cancellations due to Dekalb County school closings for inclement weather will not be refunded.
We do not refund tuition for dancers that drop out of class during the semester. Tuition will end the 1st of the month following the dancer's drop date.
Our class tuition is based on a flat monthly rate, August - May. Dancers who drop a class mid-month will still be responsible for that month's tuition. Tuition will be cancelled the 1st of the following month. We will prorate tuition for a late or mid-month start date.
Company dancers who drop company mid season on the monthly company fee payment plan are responsible for paying the remainder of their account for events already passed or already paid for by DHDC (not including tuition).
We do not keep cash on site. Please pay by check at the studio or card online.
We accept checks made payable to DHDC.
We accept all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover. Card Payments must be made online through the parent portal.
Visit and log in to the parent portal after registering to submit payments, view your account, update contact or billing information, and add/drop classes.
*Please note: Our regular classes run August - May with camps in the summer and registration open year round. Unlimited Class Discounts are applied for one student taking multiple classes only. Please see our multi-student discount at the top for families with multiple students enrolled. The above class rates do not include an costume, recital, registration, company, or any other additional annual fees. Installments are paid evenly August - May regardless of the number of classes in each month. This is based on a class rate per semester divided into even payments. Our summer camp prices will vary. Unlimited tuition rates do not apply in the summer, as we have other special discounts for our camps.
