What are the costs involved?
For regular season classes, there is a membership fee, monthly tuition, and costumes. Apparel and shoes vary with each class. These are all explained in detail below but please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
What is the Membership fee?
The annual Membership fee ($200 first student +$50 for each additional student) for regular season class. This fee is the same no matter how many classes your child takes. Instead of having multiple fees pop up throughout the season, we have bundled it into one so you are informed of everything up front.
Our Discovery Classes (ages 18 months – 9 years) have been newly designed to help grow and develop well rounded dancers. One of our missions at ADA is to develop well rounded dancers. At this level dance is like a buffet, your child has the opportunity to try all the foundational classes and discover what he/she loves most!
Our Companion classes include Acro, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Liturgical, Star Leadership and vary by age. We encourage that Ballet, Tap, and Jazz classes (core classes) are first on the menu and then companion classes are like a dessert.
Just as each child is unique, so will be their dance journey. Some will dance with us throughout early childhood, some through middle school, and some through their high school graduation. Some will dance for fun and friendship and others will make it their career. Allison’s Dance Academy has something for every dancer. We are focused on the whole dancer and helping them grow on their own unique journey. Whatever the choice for your dancer they will have ADA support and guidance available to them throughout their journey.
