Tuition is charged monthly and is due on the 1st of each month. Tuition for August and June is prorated at 50%. At no other time does Planet Dance pro-rate tuition. Studio closures for calendar holidays and breaks are figured into tuition rates. A late fee of $30 is added to all tuition payments collected after the 5th of each month. Dancers with accounts not paid in full by the 10th of each month will be unable to return to class until the balance is paid in full. There is also a $50 returned check fee for all returned checks. There are no refunds for missed classes or dropping without notice. Tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable.
You can find all tuition and fee information in the Welcome Packet.
All fees are listed in our "Welcome Packet". There is an annual $50 registration fee per dancer (maximum of $100 per family). Costumes for the recital are $100 per dancer per class and costume payments must be paid in full by November 15. If fees are not paid, your dancer's costume will not be ordered. There is also a $75 recital fee due on February 15.
Planet Dance abides by the Berkeley County School District (BCSD) for severe weather closures. If BCSD announces school closure due to weather, Planet Dance will also be closed for all classes that day. We will inform all families via email and a post to social media by 2pm for all afternoon and evening classes.
We also follow the BCSD Instructional Calendar for holidays and breaks (not including MLK Day and President’s Day).
All closures and events are notated in our "Calendar of Events" on the website.
Planet Dance will have one year-end recital held in June of each year. There will be a mandatory dress rehearsal the day before the recital to give dancers the opportunity to perform all their routines on stage before performing them live in front of an audience. Dress Rehearsal is mandatory for all dancers performing in the recital.
All students are strongly encouraged to participate in the recital. If your dancer does not wish to participate in the recital, please contact the director by November 1, 2023 in order to avoid costume and recital fees. If a student withdrawals after this date they are still responsible for all costume and recital fees associated with their account regardless of participation.
If your dancer is looking to take their training to the next level while having more opportunities to perform then the competition team is the perfect fit for your dancer. Dancers must be at least 6 years old with at least one year of dance training to audition. Auditions are held in July of each year. For more information, click here.
Planet Dance withdrawals anytime during the year and must occur by the 15th of each month. If a dancer chooses to withdraw after the 15th of the month, they will still be responsible for the following month's tuition. If a student withdrawals after November 1, 2023, they are still responsible for all costume and recital fees associated with their account.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We only accept withdrawal notices via our online portal. Email, phone, and verbal withdrawals will not be honored. We do not issue pro-rated refunds for any unused tuition or classes.
