Payment Schedule

Due at auditions: a commitment of 50% of the participation fee for one dancer in the family, along with the full costume deposit for the first role of that dancer, at the time of the audition.

The remainder of the participation fee, and any additional costume fees due, will be charged after roles are cast. These fees will be due at the first rehearsal, October 14.

For those families able to do so, by paying the full participation fee for one dancer plus the costume fee for one role now, a 5% discount on the participation fee (only) will be deducted - ($228 instead of $240).

Although siblings receive a participation reduction, the costume fees are per participant and cannot be combined. If you have more than one child participating, and are able to pay the participation fee for your entire family by auditions, we will be happy to offer the 5% discount to all participation fees paid in full by or before October 14th.

The Company does not take credit cards. All payments must be made by cash or check.

Fees will be due at the first rehearsal, October 14.
