Release Form - Gym Rental Fee - Class Fee

Every dancer must have her dance form filled out signed and handed into us before the end of September.  Click HERE to go to the form.

We are no longer using the online pay system due to pay pal merchant fees.

The month of Sept your child will owe a $30 registration fee/gym rental.  It is due by the last week of September.  We usually collect gym rental in May but we have decided to collect it in Sept.  We are trying to spread out what you will owe during the year instead of everything due in the spring.

If you want your child to do unlimited classes prices are as follows.

$50 - Unlimited Kind-1st grade
$55 - Unlimited 2nd grade - 6th grade
$60 - Unlimited 7th grade and older
