September's tuition is posted to your portal today, August 1st. For those of you who have already registered for the fall, autopay will be run on Friday, August 5th for September's tuition. If you would like to wait for the September 1st autopay please email or text us by end of day August 4th to let us know to remove you from the August 5th autopay. Any questions about your tuition please email asmith@centerstagestudios.net. Questions about placement, please email Miss Tiffany.

June's tuition is due 1st half in January and 2nd half in April. This is because of ordering costumes and closing the seasons books in May. We have decided to make it easier on our dance families (especially after the holidays) and giving you 3 options to chose on when June's tuition is paid.

1st option is paying June's tuition upfront with September's Tuition.

2nd option is to split June's tuition between the 9 months tuition is due ( September - May). Example: $90 monthly tuition. $10 will be added to your monthly tuition to make your tuition $100 Sept - May and no tuition due in June.

3rd option is 1/2 of June is paid with January tuition and 2nd half of June is paid with April tuition.

Please fill out this google form with which June payment option you would like to do this year.
