Tuition Payment Options

At A Fine Dance Studio the more hours you take the bigger the discounts. You will see a special discount appear in your account as long as you take more than 1 hour per week of classes. Also, if you have multiple children in your family that register at AFDS you get multiple child discounts that will be entered automatically.

When you register online you will also see your entire commitment right there in front of you. So there’s no hidden fees. The only potential expenses you will incur beyond this are dancewear, dance shoes & any recital tickets that you may want.

We also understand that not everyone wants to pay their balances in full, which is why we offer several payment plans. When you register you will be given several payment options (aka AUTOPAY) which depending on which one you choose with determine your payment schedule and may slightly affect the total amount due.

Below you will find our four payment plans and tuition costs. Underneath the payment plans you will see the info about costumes as well.

Please feel free to call us with any questions.

10 Installment Plan Details

For your convience we offer an Auto-Pay option to pay your balance over 9 installments. Credit cards on file will be charged on the 1st of the month if an alternative form of payment has not been received before that time.

Your first installment will be due at the time you register and this will include the registration fees, first tuition payment and first costume/recital fee deposit. Your 2nd payment will be on October 1st and your final payment will be due May 1st. No matter when you register and begin your payments.

Costume/Recital fees are spread out through the first three payments only and must be paid in full by 11/1 in order for a costume to be ordered for your child. This means if you register in October, after the year has begun, your costume fees will be still due in full by November 1st.

Paying in installments carries a 3% fee spread out over your installments. 

Please note that if your payment is not received by the 5th of each month and your credit card on file did not work, you will be assessed a $10 late fee for every 15 days your payment is late AND your dancer may not be able to participate in class. Please do not put us in this uncomfortable situation.

If your payment method is declined, we will be sure to send you an automatic email reminding you to update your card information.
