Studio Policies and Registration

Registration fee

$35 per dancer

Tuition

Tuition is calculated on an annual basis, with the parent/guardian choosing whether to pay annually, quarterly, or monthly.  Fused Dance Center does NOT take off for the summer. If your child will not be dancing over the summer, then you may elect to pay your tuition annually or in ten pro-rated payments rather than twelve.  You may not choose to pay in 12 installments if your child is not going to be dancing year-round.  

Please note that if you elect to pay your total tuition over twelve installments and your child does not dance year-round, you are still responsible to pay the total annual tuition shown on our tuition schedule.  All accounts must be in good standing with a zero balance before we will allow a dancer to re-enroll next season.

As all tuition is calculated on an annual basis; we do not pro-rate for any reason.  However, we will have additional practices leading up to recital, a performance, or competition that you will not be charged for. 

Should you elect to pay your tuition in monthly installments, then those payments are due on the 25th of each month in advance of the following month’s classes.  We utilize auto draft/debit for all tuition payments.  Please complete our auto draft form, found at the studio, and return it to the front desk.

Class Placement

A student's age is a basic guideline for class placement. Often times, other qualities are put into consideration such as: strength, maturity level, enthusiasm, focus level and technique. It is not uncommon for dancers to stay in the same level class for 2-3 years. We appreciate you for trusting our professional decisions and for understanding that we have your dancer's best interest in mind.
