TUITION FOR YEAR LONG CLASSES: Tuition is for the entire season, which starts in September and ends in June. If you choose to pay monthly, the amount will reflect a percentage of the total cost, not the number of classes in a month. Annual tuition is: one-hour per week= $520 and 45-minute classes= $455 annually (before discounts) Discounts: We offer family and multi-class tuition discounts ranging from 5% to 30%. A five per cent discount applies for those who pay for the entire year at registration. Saturday classes are discounted by 20%, reflecting extra holiday weekends when the studio is closed. Tuition can be divided into monthly payments by post-dated cheques, with a credit card on file or by Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD). At registration, there is a one-time fee of $20 per student to cover SOCAN charges and registration costs. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Debit, cheques and PAD.
TUITION FOR SESSIONS: Tuition for sessions is dependent on the number of classes in the session. Session tuition is due in full before the first class (ie there is no choice to pay monthly.) We offer a 10% discount on Session tuition for dancers who are registered for multiple sessions, or families with more than one dancer registered for a session. At registration, there is a one-time fee of $20 per student to cover SOCAN charges and registration costs. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Debit, cheques and PAD.
WITHDRAWAL: Registration fees are non-refundable. Costume fees may be refundable, depending on the date of withdrawal. LCSD reserves the right to charge a MINIMUM of one-month tuition after notice of withdrawal from class. Notice of withdrawal must be given in writing before the 1st of the month to the LCSD office (not to the teacher) by a parent or guardian (not delivered by the child). Tuition fees will not be refunded after March 1st, without medical authorization.
COSTUMES: Costumes are required for the year-end production in June. Costume fees are $80 (ages 3-7); $100 (8 & up) per class for recreational dancers. Students in competitive classes are required to pay a $80-per-dance deposit and will be invoiced the remaining balance.
COMMUNICATION We issue monthly newsletters throughout the year via Email. They contain important information about class changes, upcoming events, fundraising opportunities, and the year-end production. It is VERY important to advise the office if your email address changes. Holidays, show dates, special classes etc. are also posted on our Calendar. Check us out on Facebook and Instagram for news, photos, links and more!
ATTENDANCE: Please notify LCSD if your student is unable to attend class. Please encourage your child to build a commitment to their dance team, which means missing class only for illness and truly important engagements. IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT TO ATTEND ALL CLASSES AND REHEARSALS NEAR THE END OF THE DANCE YEAR
YEAR-END PRODUCTION: The year-end production is the end of May or beginning of June, normally held at the Vernon Performing Arts Center. Tickets will be required to watch in the audience. Further information is emailed out in late March or early April
