COMPANY CLASSES

September 2020 – April 2021


 

Below is information on yearly tuition for GCD Company Classes and any add-ons for Company dancers. 
The full amount for the season is due regardless of attendance or month of enrollment. For your convenience, yearly tuition can be broken down into seven payments, each due on the first class of each month.  If the student chooses not to continue for the year and tuition has been paid in full, we will refund the remainder of the year. Make checks payable to Grace Christian Dance Company or click here to pay online.

The monthly fee below is added on to your current monthly payment. There are no additional discounts.

$15/month – for each additional add-on class (same child)

NOTE: May-August, when GCDC technique classes are not offered, regular rates apply. 

**ACRO-TUITION**

Until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, we need each dancer to bring their own mat or add $10 to your monthly tuition to rent one from us. GCDC will then purchase, transport and clean the mat. – PRIMARY and LEVEL 1 dancers are able to use a simple yoga mat. These are widely available and can cost as little as $5 (at Five Below). – LEVELS 2+ will need a mat with a thickness of 1.5” or above. While we would normally recommend a firmer mat (if you were interested in purchasing one for home), this mat from Walmart will serve our purpose and is around $30.

ADD-ON CLASS OFFERINGS:

  • ACRO-DANCE 
  • BALLET
  • FOOT STRENGTHENING
  • POINTE/PRE-POINTE
    • POINTE is by invitation only from our Ballet and Foot Strengthening classes. If you are in those classes and are interested in the possibility, let us know.  If you are highly motivated, have a strong work ethic and are willing to dedicate yourself to at-home practice time, we can discuss your options.
  • STRETCH & STRENGTHEN
  • TAP  Tap will not be available this year due to our having to be away from our usual studio rooms with tap flooring.

 

 

 

 

ADDITIONAL FEES:

  • YEARLY REGISTRATION FEE: All families, new and returning, pay an annual $30 fee. This covers all dancers in a family and all add-on classes taken. This fee is non-refundable and due at time of registration. For girls starting classes in September, a $10 late fee is for registrations received after August 31st.

 

  • CLASS UNIFORM: You are required to purchase a uniform for class. The three piece uniform runs about $60-70. Most of the uniform pieces can be used year to year providing it still fits properly. Click here for Dress Code for information. No one is permitted to take class without a uniform and dance shoes. If you have forgotten to bring your child’s uniform or shoes to class, we have a few that are able to be rented for $5/week.

 

ALL SHOWS ARE OPTIONAL. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE, THE FOLLOWING FEES APPLY:

  • CHRISTMAS SHOWCASE FEE: If you are participating in the Christmas Showcase, there is a $15 fee with an additional $5 per dance sibling. This is a informal showing of what the girls have been learning in class followed by a cookie reception. Each dancer receives a gift. Parents are asked to bring cookies. 

**WE DO NOT REALISTICALLY THINK WE WILL BE ABLE TO HOLD A LARGE ASSEMBLY CHRISTMAS SHOWCASE. WE WILL PLAN A FUN LAST DAY OF CLASS/CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR EACH GROUP.**

  • SPRING SHOW FEE: If you are participating in the Spring Show, there is a $75 fee* to cover costumes (new, altered or embellished), tights if needed, accessories, props, backstage help and other performance needs. We provide a fundraiser to help you defray this cost (see Fundraiser). You can do a combination of fundraiser and payment to cover the fee. If not using the fundraiser, payment is due the first class in January and is non-refundable. Family max is $175. POINTE dancers are required to purchase their own costume and tights that have been approved by the Instructors.

**LAST YEAR’S DANCERS’  COSTUME FEES WILL CARRY OVER, THOUGH IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DONATE ADDITIONAL FUNDS TOWARDS THE SHOW, THAT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.**

  • MAY SHOWCASE FEE: If you are taking any add-on classes and wish to participate in our May Showcase, fee is $15/family.
  • ADDITIONAL COSTUME PIECES:
    • *PRAISE, *ACCLAIM, REJOICE, MAGNIFY, PROCLAIM, EXALT, CELEBRATE and GLORIFY are required to have specific black pants purchased our online store for the Spring Show and any additional performances.

    • *ACCLAIM, REJOICE, MAGNIFY, PROCLAIM, EXALT, CELEBRATE and GLORIFY are required to have a matte, nude-colored, tank leotard as an undergarment.
    • *These dancers should wait to be notified before purchasing.

 

  • SHOW SHOES: YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED BY MARCH OF THE REQUIRED SHOW SHOE. You are responsible for buying your child’s Show shoes. Some classes are required to purchase two different types of dance shoe. Visit our dress code page in March for information. All dancers requiring pink ballet slippers must purchase them from our online store. We will have sizing kits available in the studio. These should fit like a glove with a maximum of a quarter inch at the tip of the toes. 

 

  • SPRING SHOW TICKETS: Tickets are $12-15/seat*.

 

  • ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCES: If participating, you must purchase the current company t-shirt* to wear over the uniform.

THE FOLLOWING FEES CAN BE AVOIDED:

  • LATE REGISTRATION FEE, $10: You can avoid this late fee by returning your registration form to us by August 31 either by mailing it in or during a summer class. 

 

  • TUITION LATE FEE, $5: There is a fee assessed to tuition that is not paid on the first class of each month. If your child misses this class, you can avoid the late fee by mailing us your payment.  If you need to delay payment for any reason, please discuss this with us ahead of time so you are not charged the $5 late fee.

 

TUITION CREDITS:

Our Company grows through your referrals! As a thank you, we’d like to give you a $10 tuition credit certificate for each referred dancer that stays at least 3 months. They must list you, on their registration form, as the one that referred them. Tuition credits will be issued in January and must be used by April in the current dance season. If lost, the credit certificate will not be replaced. If you have prepaid your yearly tuition, you will be reimbursed in January for any tuition credits you have earned. Tuition credits do not apply when a sibling of a current dancer enrolls (see Sibling Discount, above).
