Tuition fees include HST and are due at time of registration, including all 10 monthly post-dated cheques or pre-authorized online credit card payments.
$25.00 registration fee (includes HST) per student is due at time of registration and is non-refundable & non-transferable. The registration fee is an annual fee which covers the school year (September 2017 through August 2018).
For our yearly classes, tuition may be paid either in one full payment or ten equal monthly instalment payments. When you register for a full year class, you agree to pay the full year tuition for that class from September through June. Registration will not be accepted without full payment, paid either yearly or monthly by post-dated cheques or pre-authorized online credit card payment.
For session-based programs (Toddler & Me, PreSchool, Beginner Teen and Adult classes), fees are due in one full payment at the beginning of the session in fall, winter, spring, or summer. All other classes are full year programs and tuition must be paid for the full year either in one full payment or ten equal monthly instalment payments as indicated above.
Monthly Payment Plan:
Monthly installment payments reflect averaging yearly fees on a September to June yearly basis. Yearly fees are divided into ten equal payments, due on the first of each month, September 1, 2017 through June 1, 2018. Monthly tuition payments do not reflect the number of classes paid for each month, rather they are equal installments of the yearly tuition fees taken over 10 months. When you pay monthly, you agree to make 10 equal payments from September through June.
Full Year Payment:
Fees may also be paid in full in one yearly payment. If you pay the full yearly fee on or before August 1, 2017, you will be eligible for a 5% discount. Please note: if a student withdraws from the program, the yearly fees will be non-refundable.
We accept post-dated cheques, and online credit card payments. All cheques should be made payable to: Contemporary School of Dance.

Upon acceptance into the CSD Dance Company, there are additional company fees, to which no studio discounts apply.
