Our tentative schedule for 2016-17 main session classes is up.  Click HERE for a sheet explaining our revised levels. 
Priority registration for students enrolled in our 2016-17 session began June 7
Former students and students enrolled in 2016 summer session began registering June 14
Registration OPEN to ALL starting June 21

Registration is all done online, except for Adult drop-in classes.  Our full 2016-17 calendar will be posted soon on our news and dates page. 

All tuition and fees for the entire year will be tallied together and divided into **10 equal budget billing payments. 
These fees include:      Class tuition        Annual Registration Fee        Recital Costume & Tights

We use a primarily automated payment system, by either debit card or credit card.  For those selecting auto payments they will post on the 7th of the month.  You can also sign on to our secure online account portal and charge payment to your credit card yourself as long as it is done on or before the 6th.  If you would prefer to pay with cash or check in person or by mail you will still be able to do that as long as it is taken care of on the 6th of the month or before.  A $5 late fee will be applied if we receive your payment after the 15th.  Account statements are not sent out you can log in to the secure system at any time to check on your balance.   There will be a $25 service fee for all returned checks, paper or electronic.

Tuition details for our 2016-17 Main (school year) Session

Once you have registered online for a class or classes, you will receive an automated email confirming that your request is in the system  We will follow that up with more detailed info sent to you by US Post.  We will charge your first (deposit) budget billing payment to the checking account or credit card you submitted during registration 1 week after your confirmation goes out.  If you prefer to pay your deposit with cash or check, be sure to let us know.  First payment must reach us within prior to the due date in your 1st statement if you prefer that it not be posted to your credit card.  Your next (2nd) payment will be due on September 7th.  Payments will then be monthly times 9, Sept. through May.  This system helps avoid confusion with different amounts and due dates and gives everyone an even amount to budget each month.    

If you would like to pay in full for the year you will receive a discount on your tuition.  This option is only available at the time of registration.  Full payments must be made by check or cash to receive this discount.

We will also offer a 3% discount to all those choosing to divide payments into 4 quarterly installments rather than the normal 10.

**We calculate annual fees into 10 payments for those registering June 1-August 10.  Those registering Aug 11-Sept 10 will be divided into 9 payments; Sept 11-Oct 10 into 8 payments; Oct 11-Nov 10 into 7 payments; Nov-11-Dec 10 into 6 payments.  (Anyone registering after Dec 10 will need to pay for their costumes in full up front.)

(Performance Group & Company members- your budget billing payments will be due on the 1st and your group fees on the 15th.  Group fees are separate and in addition to your budget billing payments.
