Payments and Fees Fall & Spring Sessions

All classes through Dance Happens are FREE OF CHARGE, and students are registered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Every effort to admit students is made. However, the program is not free to run, and students must agree to the following demonstrations of commitment:

Commitment to Attendance
Students (and parents) must make every effort to have children at class on time and ready to dance. Students should arrive in their correct uniforms, having eaten a healthy snack and with a willing attitude, ready to do their best. Personal situations do happen, but families should communicate with Ms. Paula and/or the dance teacher about excused and unexcused absences. Repeated absences will result in a loss of registration, and the spot being offered to a dancer on the waiting list.

Commitment to Fundraising
The cost of training each dancer enrolled in the program is roughly $400. Although we do not ask for payments to participate, Dance Happens asks all families to commit to helping with fundraising. This involves asking for donations from family and/or friends, or paying a one-time fee of $100. More information is available on our Sponsorship page.

Performance Costume Payments
There is a $125 non-refundable costume fee per session per enrolled child. Please keep in mind that this fee is for a costume fit to your child's measurements and will remain the property of the child after the performance. Parents may choose to pay the $125 fee in full by final costume payment, or they can pay according to the following payment plan:

January 26 - $45
February 24 - $45
Mach 24 - $35

If payment is made within the first 5 calendar days after the initial due date, there will be a $10 late fee assessed, in addition to the initial payment. If payment is made 6 calendar days or more after the due date, $1 will be assessed for each additional day the payment is late.
