Recital Fee: We charge one $20.00 recital fee per dancer per type of dance class they have enrolled in. For example if Jennifer is enrolled in Ballet and Modern for the Dance Season, then $40.00 of Recital Fees will be added to her statement. This fee helps to offset expenses such as: venue, fabric, sets, props, and rentals for the year end performance.
We do not charge families for costumes. Costumes belong to The Dance Academy.
Fundraising Fee: We are a non-profit organization. Our expenses include such things as: rent, heat, hydro, water, insurance, advertising, teacher's salaries, and everything needed to put on our year end performance (i.e. facility rental, technical support, stage equipment, etc.). Our fees do not cover all our expenses, therefore, in addition to class and recital fees, a fundraising amount of $75.00 will be added to each family's statement. No matter how many children in one family are dancing and no matter how many classes they are taking, there is only one $75.00 fundraising fee applied to the family's statement.
We will provide several fundraising opportunities throughout the year to help families raise the fundraising amount, or each family may choose to pay the fundraising amount on its own.
90% of the profit you bring in from these fundraisers will be first deducted from your fundraising amount and once your fundraising amount has been eliminated then the 90% of the profit will be deducted from your remaining fee balance.
We require that your balance is paid in 4 payments over the course of the dance season by the following dates:
September 18th, 2021 - 25% of total invoice balance due
December 18th, 2021 - next 25% payment due
March 12th, 2022 - next 25% payment due
May 14th, 2022 - existing balance due
*Sponsors may be available if payment is an obstacle for having your child(ren) dance with us! To receive sponsorship for payment of fees, proof of social assistance benefits is required. Information about sponsorship recipients is kept highly confidential.
Please contact us if you know someone who would be interested in sponsoring a child so they can join with us in providing a dancing opportunity for someone at The Dance Academy.
