TUITION / PAYMENT


Teaching the best for decades

A non-refundable registration fee of $20/student (with a family max of $30) is due prior to the first dance class.

Tuition is based on a 9.5-month calendar year, from September through June. There are NO REFUNDS for missed classes; however, they may be made-up within 2 WEEKS of the absence.

The rates below are not adjusted from classes cancelled due to holidays, inclement weather or other uncontrollable circumstances. Likewise, there is NO EXTRA CHARGE for months that have 5 classes. Tuition is based on how many hours per week a student studies at LKW. It is a yearly tuition, that we can divide into convenient monthly payments. A one hour class is $50 per month, a 45 minute class is $45 per month, and every hour after the first hour is billed at a 50% discount.

Should you choose to pay monthly you must leave a credit card on file which will be charged if the tuition has not been received by the 15th of the month. Tuition can be paid by cash, check or Mastercard/Visa. No checks will be accepted after May 15th. If a payment is not able to be processed by the 10th of the month, a $10 late fee will be applied to your account.

Please note:  PRE-PAID TUITION IS NON REFUNDABLE.  A credit will be issued and is valid for one year.

FAMILY DISCOUNTS & YEAR PAYMENT OPTION:

Family discounts apply to immediate family members only, and must be paid on the first student's first class of the month. First family member pays full price, 2nd family member receives a 10% discount, each additional family member receives a 15% discount.

A 10% discount will be applied to a one time yearly payment.  This payment must be received by September 30 and paid by cash or check ONLY.  If you prefer to pay your yearly payment by credit card, you will receive an 8% discount.

DISCOUNTED PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Please DO NOT pre-pay if you have any doubt that your child will withdraw from a class.

Late payments on any payment option will incur a $10 late fee. A $20 fee will be charged for any checks returned to us by your bank.

Please note: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS. A credit will be issued and is valid for one year.
