  6. Recital will either be the 1st or 2nd weekend in June.
  7. Some classes may need to be rescheduled around competition and recital to accommodate extra practices.  We will try to give one-week notice. 


  1. All combo age dancers & up are required to compete in a local recreational competition. The cost is currently estimated at $75 for each routine.  Once the competition is selected you will be provided an exact cost.
  2. All combo classes will take one routine to competition and these fees are required for any 
  3. All Advanced Classes will take Jazz and Lyrical Dances. At the beginning of the year TDA Staff will decide what Hip Hop and Tap levels will also attend the recreational competition.
  4. Families must communicate that they are unable to compete in the recreational competition by October 1st, in order to have this fee waived. After October 1st, all dancers enrolled in a competing class will be charged the competition fee. 
  5. Please be open and honest in your communication in regards to participation in the competition. It is a lot of work that the dancers and staff put in to prepare for the competition. Open communication allows for clarity for all and for everyone to feel fully prepared.  


  1. Technique only classes without routines, do not receive costumes. 
  2. Costume costs are included in tuition. Special costumes that exceed the costume allowance will result in extra charges.
  3. For Combo Ballet and Jazz there are times where these costumes will have the same base with multiple different add on accessories between the styles. If this applies to your dancer, you will be informed upon receiving costumes of how the costumes are worn for the different styles. 
  4. Parents are responsible for costume alterations.
  5. No refunds or exchanges on costumes.
  6. For some costumes, additional base pieces may need to be brought in by the dancers (leggings, jeans, sneakers, undergarments etc.)
  7. Account must be up to date to receive costumes.
  8. When receiving costumes they cannot be returned. When costumes are passed out you need to let us know within seven days if there are any issues with your costumes. Again they cannot be returned but if it’s a big issue we will figure it out together.


I give permission for my child to study dance at The Dance Attic.  I release The Dance Attic and owner of any liability for injuries or illnesses that may occur to me or my family while on the premises or in dance classes offered by The Dance Attic.


In the event that the building is forced to remain closed for an extended time, we will offer virtual classes. Per this agreement you will continue regular payment for the amount of time we are pushed to virtual classes.


  1. 30 minute Privates –  $40.00
  2. 1 Hour Privates – $60.00
  3. All of these fees will be paid directly to the TDA Staff Member. 
  4. You must be a current student at TDA to be offered private lessons. 
  5. All private lessons are approved by the TDA Office prior to being confirmed with dancers.


I understand that any photographs taken of my child may be used to advertise The Dance Attic.  I agree to comply with all policies of The Dance Attic.


Tuition at TDA is all inclusive and prices are per month and include tuition, costume, recital fees, and insurance.  Family members receive a discount of 25% for 2nd child and 50% for each additional child.  Adult classes are also ½ price for parents of registered dancers.  Ballet and Jazz are required to take all other styles of dance. Per your agreement, you will owe for all classes you participate in with The Dance Attic throughout the duration of the contract. *All ages are approximate.  Placement is determined by a combination of factors including age and skill level by TDA staff.   We feel strongly that all styles of dance should be reinforced with ballet and jazz, therefore we require all dancers to take these classes.  Exceptions may be made only at the discretion of the staff. Once you are registered for classes, TDA is able to set up a “Pay In Full” option for families who would like to pay for the year up front. Please email us at info@thedanceattic.com to inquire on this moving forward.  Any boy that registers to dance with The Dance Attic will receive a discount on their tuition! #boysdancetoo
