Rates & Policies

All adult classes are offered on a drop-in basis. No admittance to adult classes after the first 15 minutes of class. There are no refunds, discounts, or exceptions.

Each class will have different choreography each week, so you don't have to worry about missing anything! We offer several payment options for these classes:

Drop-in $20.00 each

Online $10.00 each

* Pre-Covid Class Packages and CSDC Class Credits may be used to purchase both In Person and Online classes
* Youth and Adult styles are offered for Online classes. Links may not be shared or transferred


YOUTH/TEEN TRACKS (Not currently running)

*We do NOT offer drop-in class options for youth/teen tracks. We do NOT pro-rate or offer make-up classes or youth/teen tracks, but students may register at any point during the session. There are no refunds, discounts, or exceptions.

The majority of our youth/teen classes are offered as sessions, where students will build on choreography and/or skills each week. These last for about two months (6-10 weeks), depending on holidays. 

We offer Track A and Track B classes, with varying levels, styles, and age groups offered on each. The difference is the start dates - they are offset by about four weeks, so we have youth/teen classes starting once a month. Students can take classes on either or both tracks. 

We do not test students into higher levels. We do recommend asking your instructor for feedback before moving to a different level, but this is not a requirement. Progression is personal for each student - some may continue in the same level for multiple sessions, others may progress more quickly.

One 55-Minute class per week-
6-Class Session: $72
7-Class Session: $84
8-Class Session: $96
9-Class Session: $108
10-Class Session: $120

**The entire session fee is due up front, and students cannot register or attend class without this being paid prior to entry.
