Frequently Asked Fee Questions


How can I pay?

We accept payment by e-transfer, cheque or credit card.

E-transfer will only be accepted if fees are being paid in full.

If you wish to split your fees into multiple payments, you may pay in up to eight post-dated cheques for the 15th of each month from September to April. All post-dated cheques must be received by the office during the first week of classes. There will be a $25 NSF charge on any returned cheques. You may also arrange monthly credit card payments with the office.

Are there any other fees to expect?

Additional fees will apply to dancers participating in exams and competitions.

Optional items for purchase:

  • Dance Photos (all dancers must be present on photo day, but purchasing is optional)
  • Year-end show DVD
  • Tickets to Year-end show (ticket is required for show entry)

Please also consider the costs for dance class wear, tights and shoes – young dancers may grow out of these during the dance year. See our Dress Code for acceptable dance attire.

Will I receive a refund if my dancer withdraws?

That depends on when your dancer withdraws. Our withdrawal policy is as follows: withdraw from any class will be accepted with written notice prior to October 15th of the given dance year, at which time fees will be assessed and a partial refund granted for classes not attended.

This deadline is in place to allow dancers a period at the beginning of the year to try our classes and ensure the class is a good fit. We understand that situations may arise that lead to withdrawal, however we do need to finalize our classes to ensure we have enough students to run the class, order costumes, and so teachers have their group in place to choreograph a dance. This is why we have a withdrawal deadline.

Individually missed dance classes will not be refunded.
