Tuition is based on our full dance season September-May/June.

Monthly payment plans (online only) are available upon request; automated payments only. Tuition is non-refundable. We align mostly with the Needham public school calendar in terms of holidays, school vacations, and weather cancellations. Tuition is due by your dancer's first class, payable in person at the studio, by mailed check, or through our pay link by credit card: https://login.payhubplus.com/HostedPaymentForm/HostedPaymentPage.aspx?hash=PJWR9KFk7YDRnuPeSODj4R7/639x0m5ipdzOU1wd5PA%3D   3.75% Transaction Fee applies

10% Discount will be applied to the annual tuition for each additional student within a family, beginning with the sibling with the second-largest program and so-on.

LATE FEES:

There will be a $35 charge for every month tuition is late. 
A $35 fee will be assessed against all returned checks.

Make-Up Classes: 

If your dancer misses a class due to an obligation, sickness, OR established studio closure (holiday, vacation, snow-day), we encourage making up the time in appropriate classes indicated by TEDS staff (dancers can choose different subjects if they prefer trying something new!). Students are also encouraged to make-up classes ahead of time as we only permit make-up classes September-January. Please refer to our calendar above to reference how many classes February-May your dancer would need to make up, and plan according to your desire!
