Tuition
One 60-minute class = $70.00 per month | One 45-minute Creative Dance class = $60.00 per month

Wings School of Dance offers a 3-tier tuition rate for students taking multiple dance classes. The 3-tier tuition rate applies to 60-minute classes:
• 1 class per week = $70.00 per month
• 2nd class per week = $60.00 per month
• 3rd class per week = $50.00 per month

Tuition is paid on a monthly basis, due on the 1st of the month and delinquent after the 5th. A $20.00 late fee will be automatically assessed for tuition received in our office after the 5th. All tuition is based on 36 class meetings September through June; therefore, there will be no extra charge for “fifth week” lessons as these lessons are used to offset the days when the studio is closed (see WSD Calendar). Tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Automatic bill-pay and monthly credit card deductions can be set up via online Registration. PLEASE NOTE: Automatic credit card deductions will ONLY be debited between the 1st and 5th of each month. There is a $25.00 charge for all returned checks.

Class Placement
Wings School of Dance is proud to offer a wide variety of classes. Students are placed in classes according to their technical abilities, not necessarily their age. All student placement is based on Instructor approval.

Class Cancellation
In the event only 2-3 students show up for a class, the instructor will teach a semi-private 30 minute class. If only 1 student shows up, the class will be cancelled. Tuition is only pro-rated if a class needs to be cancelled.
