Students are registered on a yearly basis, with the exception of Creative Movement and Children's Division Boys classes, which are on a quarterly basis. Tuition is payable at the beginning of each school year. Tuition may be paid in semester or monthly installments upon approval of the School. Payments are due by the first class of each month. Other arrangements must be approved by the School. Students admitted after the school year has begun are eligible to pay a pro-rated amount upon approval of the Administrative Director.

Once classes have begun, tuition is not refundable. Students who miss class or withdraw before the end of the semester are still obligated for the full semester's fees, whether they are paying on a semester basis or in monthly installments.

Students are eligible for a pro-rated tuition refund only if they must withdraw from classes due to prolonged illness or severe injury, verified by a doctor's certificate.

Students with outstanding accounts will not be admitted to class. There is a $20 charge for any returned check.
