DANCE IS . . .


Policies & Tuition


There is a $35 annual registration fee due at the time of registration.

Due Dates / Late Fees

Tuition is an annual amount that is paid in ten installments, due on the 15th of each month beginning in August and ending in May. A $10 late fee will be added to all payments not received by the 25th of each month. Fleetwood Dance Center will only send statements to delinquent or problem accounts.

Accounts that are not reconciled by the 1st of the following month will result in the student(s) being dropped from our rolls, and they will not be permitted to participate in classes until the account is paid and up-to-date.

Returned checks will be charged a $25 fee.


Classes meet once each week at their specified time and date. Studio holidays are based on the Fulton County School System, and holidays have been factored in to the annual tuition. Refunds cannot be given for class cancellations caused by unsafe weather conditions or personal absences. In the case of an illness, students may make up the missed class (talk to your instructor for details).

Tuition payments are due/drafted on the 15th of each month beginning in August and ending in May.


The annual spring recital will be held at the Sylvia Beard Theatre, located in the Buford Community Center (2200 Buford Highway, 30518). The recital is an optional activity and requires the payment of a costume/recital fee. While the decision to participate is a choice left to each dancer, the instructor must be informed no later than the end of January if the student does not wish to perform in the recital.

Class & Rehearsal Etiquette

We encourage your interest in your student’s growth and learning experience at our studio, and it is important that this progress not be hindered by pulling focus from the class and instructor. We kindly ask all family and friends to respect the following guidelines:

  • Please do not enter the studio while class is in progress.
  • If your student must leave early for any reason, they must notify the instructor before class begins.
  • If you have questions or concerns, we are happy to listen! The best time to talk with an instructor is after class is over.
