Tuition Commitment

Tuition is paid in nine equal monthly installments, September through May. The rate remains the same whether it is a long (5 week) or short (3 week) month. Tuition is based on a full school year, which consists of 36 classes held between September and May. Some months (especially those with school vacations, ie: Thanksgiving break, winter break, spring break and Memorial Day) may only have two or three classes while others may have five in a month’s time. Tuition is based on the total number of classes from September to May, so the monthly installment amount remains the same.
*There are no refunds for missed classes, makeup classes are bly encouraged.

Auto Pay Option

For your convenience, Studio West offers a monthly automatic tuition withdrawal. Visit front desk for details.

Adult Class Card Payment

Class Card Payment allows you flexibility during your busy schedule. Buy 3 or more and attend any time during our year program. This option is only available for select classes. Please inquire for more information.


Students are invited to make up any missed classes in another class that is appropriate. Consult teaching staff for recommendations. Make-up classes can be taken up to 3 months after the absence, as long as the student is still enrolled. There are no refunds for missed classes, makeup classes are bly encouraged. When you are able to give us advanced notice of a prolonged absence (over 4 weeks), we may be able to offer half tuition to hold your dancer’s spot in a class, until your dancer can return.
