Registration Fee: A non-refundable registration fee of $40 for the first dancer and $30 each additional family member is due upon registration. In addition, a deposit of 50% of one installment is due at this time. This is also non-refundable. Payment in full is required for the registration fee, August tuition installment, and any Twirl, Twist, Hip Hop & Pop, Fairytale Ballet, GMX, Spotlight or summer fees, if applicable. You will receive a payment confirmation email once your payment has been processed.
Rhythm Dance Center tuition is based on an entire season of dance. Our season runs from August 18, 2023 - May 23, 2024. All dancers are required to pay for the entire season. If you enroll mid-season we will prorate your tuition based on when you begin dancing with us. Tuition is not based on the number of classes in a month or on attendance. There is NO refund for missed classes as we provide a make-up schedule.
You may pay the entire season in full or pay it in monthly installments. At the time of registration, a deposit equal to one half of your monthly installments will be due. This deposit and registration fee are non-refundable. The other installments are due the 1st of each month, September 2023 - May 2024, and will be automatically billed to the card on file on the 1st of each month.
All monthly tuition payments, Year-End Show costume payments, and Year-End show fees will be auto-drafted to the card on file. You will be emailed a receipt after your tuition is auto-drafted. Year-End Show costume payments will be auto-drafted on November 10, 2023. In early Spring of 2024, we will announce the exact Year-End show fee amount, referred to as the FUNdle. This will be approximately $140 t-shirt, individual and group digital class photos, video downloads of the show, a custom, personalized souvenir bag tag, lanyard, goodie back and more. Once the exact fee amount is determined, this fee will be auto-drafted on April 15, 2024.
If you opt to pay the entire season in full prior to August 10, 2023, you will receive a 5% discount. Please note: If you pay your dancer's tuition for the full year and then withdraw from classes for any reason (loss of interest, school obligations, injury, illness, etc.), a 30% penalty will be applied to your refund for the remainder of the year. We suggest you only pay the year in full if you are 100% confident your dancer will participate fully in the entire season. If for any reason we provide a tuition discount during one or more months of the season, this discount will not apply to prepayments. No further discounts are available.
Twirl Preschool Program
Twirl is our Trademarked preschool program at Rhythm! Rhythm Owners Becca Moore and Dani Rosenberg developed this awesome program, and it is now used in dance studios across the country!
Twirl Classic (Twirl Pink, Twirl Lilac, Twirl Yellow, and Twirl to the Max*) includes a reward ribbon for their dance bag, a super fun activity book, fun stickers to track achievements and a certificate of completion for each dancer at the end of the year. The Twirl Classic fee is $25.00.
The Twirl Fee for Hip Hop & Pop and Fairytale Ballet is $15 per dancer and is due at registration. These classes receive a fun bag tag and a certificate of completion at the end of the year.
*Twirl to the Max is technically two back-to-back classes merged into one class, so tuition is for two classes. Dancers will perform two dances in the year-end show and will have two costume fees.
Twist Kindergarten Program
For our 2022-2023 season, we are excited to offer a NEW program called Twist for our Kindergarten age dancers! This is a Jazz and Tap combo class (with some ballet basics!) that comes with a fun Dance Booklet and colorful stickers to help them track their progress while learning tap and jazz basics! In addition they will receive a certificate of completion of Twist at the end of the season. Twist will also offer some of our favorite THEMED classes that are sure to bring that element of FUN we are known for! In addition, the dancers will receive a fun bag tag for their dance bag that they will add “sparkle” to during the year! This class will perform TAP in the Year-End Show!
Spotlight (Invitation Only)
Dancers selected for our Spotlight Program will have an additional $50 Spotlight fee due at registration. In addition, they attend one competition each year that requires an entry and media fee per dance, and are required to take one summer dance camp at Rhythm.
Groove Mekanix (GMx)
Dancers selected for our GMx Crew will have an additional $75 GMx fee due at registration. In addition, they attend two competitions each year that require entry and media fees, and are required to take the GMX Summer Dance Camp at Rhythm.
We produce a fabulous production at the end of the year with all Rhythm dancers. Our shows (including dress rehearsal) are typically held the week of Memorial Day. We will announce the dates for our 2024 shows as soon as possible. This is an exciting and rewarding part of the season that everyone looks forward to! We encourage all dancers to participate! Stay tuned for 2024 Year-End Show details to be released throughout the year in November and April.
YEAR-END SHOW COSTUMES: Costume costs are generally $100-$150 per costume (you will receive the exact amount in November 2023). Costume fees will be auto-drafted on November 10, 2023. After this fee is processed on November 10th, it is not refundable for any reason. Any costume alterations needed will be the responsibility of the parent. If your dancer will not be participating, you are required to notify us by email to email@example.com no later than November 1, 2023. Please do not rely on your dancer to inform us that she or he will not be dancing in the Year-End Show!
YEAR-END SHOW FUNdle: In early Spring of 2024, we will announce the exact Year-End show fee amount, referred to as the FUNdle. This will be approximately $140 and will include class and individual photos, videos of of the shows, a Year-End Show t-shirt and more -- a value well over the cost! Once the exact fee amount is determined, the details will be announced and it will be auto-drafted on April 15, 2024.
YEAR-END SHOW TICKETS: Tickets to our Year-End Shows will need to be purchased. Dancers performing in the show do not need a ticket. More information on Show Tickets, including when they will be available to purchase, will be included in the Year-End Show packet released mid-April. The ticket cost will be announced in the Spring when more of the show details come out! In order to ensure all dancers have the opportunity to have their immediate family watch them dance in the show, we may limit the number of tickets each family may purchase for a designated time period. After the designated time period, if tickets are still available, we may lift the limit and open ticket sales to everyone.
