Commitment Expectations:

Your child's commitment to the program they are accepted into takes precedence over their activities outside of dance. Students must also be in good standing academically. If your child is unable to make this commitment and is struggling academically, the Performance Program may not be the best fit for your child. 

Financial Expectations:

Tuition for the 10-Month Commitment is based on the number of hours of training required to be in the program(s) your child has been accepted into. Breaking the tuition into monthly payments is allowed with no additional charge.

Students are responsible for the cost of all costumes EXCEPT for WSPA's Nutcracker Production. 

Expect additional fees charged for participation in any productions and competitions.
