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 $58 per month, a 45 minute class is $53 per month, and every hour after the first hour is billed at a 50% discount.


In the event 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.
