Tuition & Info
Fall 2019 registration begins in August—subscribe to the newsletter to be notified when registration opens.
Our fall semester runs from September 3rd through January 31st and focuses on building a movement vocabulary. Fall holidays include Halloween (Thursday, October 31st), Thanksgiving (November 25th-December 2nd), and Winter Break (December 23rd-January 6th).
Tuition for hour-long classes is $16/class. Steppin’ Out will offer 19 weeks of Tuesday and Wednesday classes this fall and 18 weeks of Thursday and Saturday classes.
Thus, fall tuition breaks down as follows:
Tuesdays or Wednesdays: 19 classes x $16/class + a non-refundable $10 registration fee per class: $314/session for 1 class/week for the fall semester.
Thursdays or Saturdays: 18 classes x $16/class + a non-refundable $10 registration fee per class: $298/session for 1 class/week for the fall semester.
(As always, should payment ever be a problem, please contact Angela.)
New for 2019: 1.5-hour classes will now be priced at $20/class. 2-hour classes will be priced at $24/class. Activity Hero will adjust semester totals accordingly at the time of registration.
We offer tuition discounts for multiple classes or siblings as follows:
For two classes/week or two dancers per family: 10% off the semester
For three classes/week or three dancers per family: 15% off the semester
For four classes/week or four dancers per family: 20% off the semester
For five classes/week or five dancers per family, 25% off the semester, etc.
Please note that multi-class discounts are only available when paying for multiple classes in the same transaction.
Registration & Refunds
REFUNDS: The $10 registration fee per class is never refundable. Refunds on the balance of tuition are not available after the third week of class. If a student needs to withdraw from the class past the third week, credit will be given for the remainder of classes in the semester from the starting point of notification.
PRO-RATE POLICY: Students who register after the first week of class will be pro-rated for the value of the missed classes at the rate of $16/class. Please note that no new students will be allowed to register for the fall semester after October 15th.
TO TRY A CLASS: There are no 'drop-ins'; however, if a dancer would like to try taking one class before committing to the whole session and there is a space available in the desired class, he or she may do so, once, for $16. Note: This does not reserve your space in the class; you must register for the class to reserve your spot and it is possible the class will fill before you do so.
RETURNING STUDENTS: We do not offer automatic re-enrollment from fall to spring or spring to the following fall. To enroll in a class, you must register for each semester.
Class age restrictions are enforced. When you register for a class, an email confirmation will be sent to you from activityhero.com. You will not receive a call from us unless there is a problem with your registration or the class is full.
Although our general philosophy is to keep the emphasis on having fun, we do have a few guidelines to help the studio run more smoothly for everyone:
Dress Code: Students should wear proper dance attire. Steppin’ Out does not have a uniform, but students might choose to wear leotards, tights, leggings, dance pants, tank top, dance skirt, tutus, or fitted t-shirts. Any combination, color or pattern is fine. No jeans please. Please wear appropriate shoes for the style of your class (tap shoes, ballet shoes, jazz shoes, etc.).
Observation Policy: Drop off at the studio is highly encouraged (especially for dancers aged seven and older). This is to limit student distractions so that students may get the most out of their hour. We do love when extended family members come to visit and welcome parents to occasionally observe class, but we need to limit the number of regular spectators during class time as parents chatting and siblings playing have become quite distracting for our dancers and teachers given the space limitations of the studio. New families are welcome to observe as they become familiar with the studio. Children younger than seven may be dropped off too, depending on the comfort level of the parent and the child.
Punctuality & Attendance: Dancers are expected to arrive on time and attend class regularly, especially in the spring semester in preparation for the annual performance.
