Dance class helps students in countless ways by forming friendships, enhancing self-esteem, developing discipline, leadership and time-management skills that can be so beneficial throughout their lives. Please discuss the importance of dance and these expectations with your child. With your help, we can make this a very successful experience. We look forward to working with you and your dancer! Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Tuition: Tuition is based on the number of hours dancing per month. While the number of hours may vary per month due to holidays and fewer numbers of days in a month, monthly payments for the term are divided equally for your convenience. Tuition is due on the 1st of each month and will be considered late after the 10th. September tuition should be paid prior to the start of the dance season.
Tuition payment options: Tuition can be paid by cash, check (payable to Center Stage), credit or debit card. Checks can be mailed to: Center Stage Dance 119 S. Holland St. Bellville, TX 77418 or placed in the drop box located to the left of our front door.

Dropping Class(es): If you wish to drop a class or withdraw from the school for any reason, you must submit a written note to the front desk prior to the posting of the next month’s tuition. If a student wishes to return the same season they may do so only if there is available space in the class.

Level 1 – Kindergarten and First Grade
Level 2 – Second and Third Grade
Level 3 – Fourth Grade and Up
Level 4 – Advanced Dancers (will be placed by instructors)

Arrivals and Departures: Students should remain in the lobby until their ride arrives. For safety we ask that parents come into the studio to pick up younger students. Parking spaces are limited, please be respectful of our residential neighbors and nearby driveways.
Students will study in the placed levels for a full school year.
If at any time teachers feel it necessary to move a student parents will be notified.
