Tuition and Payment Plans
Adair Dance Academy follows a monthly payment system. ADA does not charge separate recital fees. Tuition is divided into 9 equal payments. Your deposit (first payment) will be used as your September tuition payment and holds your space. The remaining 8 payments are due at the first class you attend each month, beginning with your October classes and ending with your May classes. Any payments not received by the 12th of the month will be charged a $10 late fee. Returned checks are charged $35.
Tuition fees include:
  • Lessons
  • Dance uniform leotard
  • Up to 2 costumes for performances
  • 2 recital tickets
 
All classes are scheduled mid September through May with an end-of-year performance in early June.
