DDC accepts payment by cash, check, Master Card, Visa or Discover. DDC policy states that students whose accounts are more than 30 days in arrears are not allowed to dance and will be asked to sit and watch that day’s lesson, unless account is brought up to date.
Payments for the September to May Session are paid in 8 equal installments, due by the first day of Sept., Oct., Nov., Dec., Jan., Feb., Mar., and April. This tuition is based on a yearly fee for the season, not the number of classes per month. Payments RECEIVED after the 10th of the month (grace period), will incur an automatic $10.00 late fee which will not be waived for any reason. Being absent will not be accepted as a reason for late payment.
Tuition will not be refunded, credited, pro-rated, or transferred for unattended or withdrawal from classes after classes have begun, unless DDC cancels said class due to lack of enrollment. Students may finish out the portion of classes they have already paid for, then upon formal withdrawal by phone call or email, may drop out and not be held financially responsible for payments for the remainder of the season. Students who have an illness or injury, which prevents them from finishing their lessons paid for, will be issued a credit for future lessons (non-transferable to other family members), with a doctor’s note.

Each student must purchase a costume for each dance they are performing in the recital. Costumes run approximately $65.00 for our younger students to $80.00 for our teen and company dancers. A deposit of $65.00 plus tax per costume is due by November 1st. If said deposit is more than 10 days late, a $5.00 late charge per student will be charged to your account. You will receive an invoice for any balance over $65.00 in January, said invoice due upon receipt. No costumes will be distributed to anyone who owes money on their account, until the account is brought up to date.
Costumes are made to order and paid for at the time DDC orders them in November. Once ordered, should a student drop out of class, no refund will be given on costume payments. When your costume arrives, you will be called or emailed so you can pick up the costume. Costumes not picked up by the recital will be donated.
A candy sale fundraiser is available to all students to help defray the costs of your costumes. (Details will be in the Sept/Oct Newsletter.)
DDC Company members will be billed separately for their competition costumes.
