Downtown Dance Center Tuition Policy (Kid’s Program)

Class Tuition is based on Two Sessions: 


First session tuition includes classes from September to January.

Second session tuition includes classes from February to June. 


Once you enroll, your financial obligation is for the entire session in which you have enrolled.  

We do not issue refunds or credits for early withdrawal.   


We offer our families two ways to pay the session tuition.


Session tuition paid in FULL at the time of registration.


Tuition Installments: 


Installment Plan:
Installments are based on each Session Tuition divided into 5 equal payments.


We offer tuition installments due the first of every month throughout the entire session.  

Session One: Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan

Session Two: Feb, March, April, May, June


We do not offer month to month enrollment.  

If you choose to pay by installments, opposed to in-full at the time of registration, your financial obligation and installments will continue through an entire session.  


Session Tuition is calculated to include holidays, vacation days, occasional cancellation due to inclement weather, staff illness, or unforeseen circumstances beyond our control.  

Tuition is NOT calculated on a per class basis or monthly basis.  


  • Statements are sent to the email address you provided at registration and include a link to the online payment portal.
  • Installment toward tuition does not change regardless of attendance or the number of classes in any given month throughout the session.   
  • We do not offer early withdrawal for either of our sessions.  We are not able to honor requests to suspend tuition for any reason.  
  • Make-up classes, refunds or credits are not offered for dancers that miss class for personal reasons.  
  • Your Payment plus an annual registration fee is due upon registering. A place in class will not be secured until these payments are made.  
  • There is no prorating or discounts given for installments due to mid-month enrollment. 
  • Any account 60 days in arrears will require payment in full before student is allowed to return to class. 
  • If there is an outstanding balance at recital time, the dancer will not receive their costume and will not be allowed to participate in the recital.



Automatic Payment is required. We will set this up with all parents via credit card information provided to Downtown Dance Center on the first day of classes.

Any additional payments can be made online through our website or our payment portal. 

We also accept Checks, Money Orders, Cash or Credit Cards. 

Checks should be made payable to Downtown Dance Center. Include your child’s full name in the memo.

A late fee of $15.00 per student account will be automatically added to account if payments is not received after a 15-day grace period. 

Returned checks will be charged a $35.00 fee.


Dance classes are discounted so that as your child dances more, dance class costs less.
