Tuition fees at JDSD are based on the amount of time that a student spends weekly at the studio and not on the number of classes. Fees are paid on a monthly basis. If you have completed the Combination Class Program and are moving to individual classes of Jazz, Ballet, or Tap and choose back to back classes, it usually involves only one costume for the Spring Production. Please find our fee schedule listed below.

Until the chart is available, please call the studio for a make-up class day & time if you should need one.
GOOD ATTENDANCE IS VERY IMPORTANT, IN ORDER TO GAIN MAXIMUM BENEFITS FROM INSTRUCTION.
To cover the cost of processing your child's registration and to guarantee them a place in the class of your choice, we require a registration fee. If registered before September 1st, $30 non-refundable registration fee per student is due at the time of registration with a maximum fee of $75 for families with three or more children taking classes. The fees after September 1st are $35 per student, and a maximum of $80.
Participation in our production is not mandatory for any student; however, we do encourage participation. We feel it is a positive, rewarding, and fun time for the students. More information will be available closer to the recital.
Our tuition scale has been set up according to the length of weekly lesson time and based on a 31 week season. Holiday breaks and a short month of may have not been counted into this scale. The total amount of all thirty-one lessons has been divided into nine equal monthly payments, which were quoted to you at the time of registration.
If a payment is not received by the 10th of the month, a $15.00 late charge will be assessed for the first month it is late. A $20 late fee will be assessed for any continuing months tuition is late. If a payment becomes two months past due, arrangements must be made through the office or lessons will be discontinued until the account is brought up to date. All returned checked will be assessed a $35.00 fee. All returned checks will be reported to Bounceback, a credit collections agency. If payment is made with cash please bring cash to the office to receive a receipt. If payment is made by check and the student's last name is different from the person writing the check, indicate the student's full name, class time, and ID number on the bottom of the check.
Students who wish to withdraw from a class are required to fill out a Drop Form. This form is located here or in the studio office and must be turned in to the studio office. Withdraws must be done on or before the 15th of the month in order to only pay for the classes taken that month. Forms received after the 15th of the month will be charged an entire month’s tuition. This is not for students changing classes, only for students dropping a class entirely. Any changes made to a student’s schedule must still be reported to the office in order to have their name on the roster (this includes changing days, times, etc)
