Due to the increasing number of students, insurance guidelines and church policies, the following Policies and Procedures have been established for the safety of every individual. Please know we only want the very safest and most loving environment for you and/or your child.

 

Studio Policies

  • For the safety of the students, please do not drop off your child early. As the prior class is dismissed, please send in your child.
  • Please do not bring a guest to class. Should you have a friend interested in the school, please arrange an Observation Day with your instructor prior to his/her visit.
  • Please be present to pick up your student when their class is dismissed. Every child must be supervised at all times.

Tuition Policies

  • Registration Fee - $35 per family.
  • Group Classes - Tuition is $60 per month for group classes, which includes (4) 30-minute lessons each month.

  • Tuition is due at the first class of each month.
    • Pay Online - We offer online payment for your convenience. Auto-pay, offered under PAYMENTS, is highly recommended.
    • Pay By Check - Should you prefer to pay by check, please make payable to DLSPA. One check may be made for multiple lessons/students.
    • Pay With Cash - Should you send cash, you must place it in an envelope with the student’s name on the front.

Recital Fees

Currently, we do not require additional fees at recital time. These fees are covered in your regular, full tuition in November, December and May. In these particular months, full tuition is due with the following class schedule:

  • November - attend 3 classes
  • December - attend 2 classes
  • May - attend 2 classes, rehearsals and show
  • (If you are not enrolled in November and December, an additional $25 fee will be assessed to cover recital fees.)

Recital Costumes
There is an additional charge for recital costumes, and there are separate recital costumes for each class. The cost of costumes is generally between $50 - $120 each. A costume deposit of $25 is due no later than December 1st. Costumes must be paid for in full by April 1st. Because costumes are non-returnable, once they have been ordered, costume payments are NON-REFUNDABLE. Costumes are made to a standard size to fit a variety of shapes and sizes and don’t always fit perfectly. All alterations are the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
