STUDIO INFORMATION / POLICIES

Registration (Students who are new to DLS): A onetime $35.00 registration fee is required with your student’s registration form to reserve class space. Registration is not complete & class space is not reserved until this fee is paid.

Monthly Tuition: Tuition is due on the 1st of each month.  If not paid by the 10th a $15.00 late fee will be assessed on the 11th.  All accounts must have a zero balance at the end of each month, otherwise students will be asked to sit out of class until the account is taken care of.  In addition, if the account has a remaining balance on the final day of the month, the account will assess an additional late fee of $15.00. Tuition costs are dependent on student’s class hours per week. Students in the same household will receive a 10% discount on tuition. Class fees are as follows:

CLASS PROGRESSION

Many students take more than one dance/tumble class.  Students taking both jazz and tumbling, ballet or hip hop will advance at a much faster rate and become much more versatile.


At DanceLife Studio we strive to offer once a week classes that push our students to accomplish their future goals. We limit our class sizes to ensure that each student is receiving the full teacher attention they deserve. Recreation classes will participate in studio recitals, holiday demonstrations, community performances, parades & studio parties throughout the year.

We are thankful & love each one of our students!  Welcome to our Dance Family!
