Teaching the best for decades

 Tuition is based on a 9 -month calendar year, from September through May. 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 $53 per month, a 45 minute class is $48 per month, and every hour after the first hour is billed at a 50% discount.


In the result of another shut down LKW Dance Center will continue dance training remotely via zoom.

Should you choose to pay monthly you must leave a credit card on file.  Cash/check payments must be made by the 15th of each month.  If payment is not received by the 15th of the month, the balance due plus a $15 late fee will be charged to the credit card on file.  Tuition can be paid by cash, check or Mastercard/Visa. No checks will be accepted after April 15th.

LKW DANCE CENTER  is committed to each student’s success in learning within a caring, responsive, and safe environment that is free of discrimination, violence, and bullying. Our school works to ensure that all students have the opportunity and support to develop at their fullest potential and share a personal and meaningful bond through dance. All students/families who do not adhere to our policies run the risk of being dismissed from our program.

In Studio Rules

Students must be dressed properly, hair pulled off face and absolutely no jewelry for every class.


Upper school students must be prepared to dance at the start of each class. Late students may only enter with permission from the director/teacher and may be asked to sit and observe class for injury prevention.


Upper school students who miss three or more classes run the risk of missed information. The more you’re here ... the more you know …. the more you dance.


If a student is absent, makeup classes are encouraged. Students are allowed to make up missed classes by attending an additional class of the same discipline and level. (all makeup classes are at the responsibility of the student/parent)

LKW is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please do not bring valuable items to dance class.


Students must use assigned dressing areas according to class level.


No gum food or drinks other than water are permitted in the studio.

Upper School Class Etiquette

  • There is no gum chewing in class.
  • There is no talking in class
  • No leaning on the ballet barre
  • No sitting down in class
  • It is good etiquette to applaud your work/teacher and say “Thank You” after class
  • We asked that all students use the bathroom before class or during the transition of classes. (with the exception of our lower school students and emergencies)



The safety of our students is a priority. Verbal and physical violence is prohibited at the LKW Dance Center. Under our zero-tolerance policy, staff have no flexibility to consider the circumstances, physical and verbal violence; is unacceptable across the board. The director of the LKW Dance Center has the authority to dismiss all parties from our facility if bullying of any sort is detected.

*All concerns must be reported directly to the Director of The LKW Dance Center.


Masks are not mandatory but LKW would love for all of us to do our part in keeping up with our health. In an event that a student becomes ill on site at The LKW Dance Center:

  • Student will be placed in lobby.
  • Parents will receive a call from Administration for immediate pick up.
  • Re-sanitation will occur.
  • Students cannot return to the studio unless cleared by a doctor.

If there is a report of a COVID case within the LKW student body we will notify all persons affiliated. Although masks are not mandatory the LKW sanitation process will remain. (revisit sanitation code)
There is a limited capacity for parents, caregivers, siblings or friends in the studio while class is in session. For the safety of our staff and students, please do not crowd the lobby and hallway areas.


The Recital is our end of the season dance concert where LKW students demonstrate their achievements and progress.
The staff at LKW will choreograph (free of charge) an amazing end of the season performance for each dance class. The Recital is a privilege in which we've allowed many students to participate; being a part of our recital is a 9 month commitment.

Level placement, music selection, choreography, costuming, production and spacing of all group routines / performances are at the choreographer’s discretion and are not up for discussion. These decisions are made from many years of teaching experience. All staff members are passionate about our dance program. We take pride in every student and every dance routine. All decisions are made in the best interests of the dancers.


Students who wish to participate in our end of the season Recital must purchase a costume for each performing class. Once costume(s) are ordered it is the responsibility of the parent/student to commit to paying for the costume(s) in full (late costume payment charges will be applied). All alterations, steaming and costume accessories are the responsibility of parents/students once costumes are distributed. Costumes must be altered and steamed for picture day, all dress rehearsals and performances.
