Are there additional fees besides monthly tuition?
No one likes surprises when it comes to fees. In addition to monthly tuition a dancer can expect the following fees:
Registration Fee: $50 due at registration
Recital Expense: $190-$335 (see your class description for your class fee)
*our recital expense includes all costumes for class, admission, theater rental & expense, pictures in program, hard copy of the program, & recital t-shirt*
We also ask each dancer to sell one ad for our recital program.
Does my child have to participate in the recital?
Our end of year recital is optional. Most students do participate in recital; however, it is not a requirement to take classes.
What does ACA do differently that makes it a Christian Dance Studio?
*Music: All classes are taught to Christian or Instrumental/ Classical Music
*Prayer: All classes end in prayer
*Recital Themes: All recitals center around a Biblical story / event or concept
*Corrections: Corrections are given in an encouraging, uplifting way
*Costumes: Costumes will not expose stomachs and will be chosen to respect the dancer.
*Talent: We know that our talent is given to us by the Lord & we want to honor him when using it.
