Monthly tuition is required for all students under the age of 18. Tuition will be automatically billed on the 1st of every month. All accounts require a credit card on file in order to register for classes. For adults, ages 18+, we offer class cards or drop in rates to fit whatever suits your style and schedule.
A once per season, non-refundable $35 registration fee is due at the time of registration along with the first month’s tuition.
For the Fall & Spring Session (School Year), our dance season runs for 10 months out of the year with a tuition structure based on at least 34 meetings per class over the course of the season. Short months (with only 3 classes) will be balanced by longer months (5 classes) to fulfill the structure of 34 meetings per class from September through June (the final bill is made on June 1st each season).
For the Summer, we hold a 5 week session, but you only pay for 4 weeks! Rates are a one time only, Summer Session charge – covering a weekly mix of in-person and zoom classes for July and August. See the full schedule here.
For dancers who are new to TMS, trials are available for Hybrid classes via Zoom only. This policy is in place in order to keep limits on room capacity and to minimize the opportunity for transfering of germs during this global pandemic. The following classes are in person only and do not have trial options available: Ballet/Jazz Combo, Tap 1/2, Ballet 1, Mini Combo, Mini Hip-Hop/Tumble, Ballet/Tap Combo. Dancers who are interested in these classes must enroll in advance, and should they participate in class and choose not to continue, tuition will be prorated for the missed weeks. For all other classes, please reach out to email@example.com to schedule a virtual trial.
