Tuition, Class Fees, & Discounts

Children's Dance Classes

Most of our children's dance classes operate on a school year style schedule and have the option to participate in our annual Recital! This is what we mean we say "Full Season Classes." Full Season Classes will begin August 19th and run through May 24th, 2025.

We offer Multi-Class and Sibling Discounts!

The more classes a dancer takes, the greater the discount! The base tuition fee for each class is listed next to the class info on the registration page.

Multi-Class Discount for Full Season Classes

  • 10% off monthly tuition when enrolled in two Full Season Classes

  • 15% off monthly tuition when enrolled in three Full Season Classes

  • 20% off monthly tuition when enrolled in four Full Season Classes

  • 30% off monthly tuition when enrolled in five or more Full Season Classes

Sibling Discount

When two kids in a household are enrolled in Full Season Dance Classes they each receive an additional 10% off monthly tuition! Three or more dancers in the same household will receive 20% off monthly tuition!

Additional Fees & Costs

Registration Fee

  • A registration fee of $35 per dancer will be applied at the time of enrollment in Full Season Classes. 

Dance Wear and Shoes

Costume Fee

  • Each Full Season Class participating in Recital will require a Recital Costume to be ordered. Costumes are $85 each, including a pair of tights. Any additional costume that shares a base leotard with the first is only $50. This fee is due November 15th, but will be posted to your account prior to the due date so you may pay in installments. Participation in Recital is optional, but it will be assumed each dancer will perform unless the studio is notified otherwise prior to ordering costumes.

Recital Fee

  • Families with dancers participating in Recital will be charged a Recital Fee of $85 for their first dancer and $65 for each additional dancer. This fee is due February 15th, 2025 and includes a dress rehearsal and performance with lighting and full production, a full color dance yearbook with photos and space for friends to sign, a participation medal, and a digital video download of the performance. The recital fee does not include tickets. Families are welcome to purchase as many or as few tickets to the show as they prefer.

Adult Classes, Family Dance & Yoga, and Kids' Yoga


These classes operate differently than the "school calendar based" kids' dance classes and are paid for when you register for the individual class or purchase a membership. See our "Adult Classes" and "Family Classes" pages for details!

Dress Code & Class Etiquette

Following Dress Code is essential to dance class!

  • Wearing proper dance clothing allows for safe, efficient movement! Excessive fabric, loose hair, or jewelry can be dangerous.

  • Fitted, stretchy clothing like leotards and tights allow the teacher to see the dancer's alignment and positioning and to give feedback and corrections towards safe, technically sound movement that will prepare them for more complex dance movements when they're older.

  • Just like a uniform in sports, wearing proper dress code in dance helps instill discipline, team identity, and sets a tone that now it is time for dance class.

A common understanding of class etiquette creates the best possible learning environment for all the members of our studio community. 

We like this list of etiquette guidelines put together by The Radio City Rockettes!

Most importantly for dance and yoga...

  • Arrive on time and stay for the entire class. If you must arrive late, enter quietly and wait for the teacher to signal that you may enter the space.

  • No gum, food, or drinks besides water in the movement studios. 

  • Leave phones off and away!

  • Never sit down in dance class unless given specific directions to do so!

  • No side conversations during class.

  • Do your best and try new things!

Dress Code & Etiquette
Attendance & Class Make Ups

There is no specific attendance policy for classes at Monarch Movement Company. However, tuition is still charged when a student misses class. Make Up Classes may be arranged in any existing age appropriate class and can be arranged within your Customer Portal! If a student is not able to make it to an alternative existing class, Monarch may not be able to accommodate a makeup.

Monarch Movement Company does take generally observed holidays as well as a Spring Break. By the end of the dance season, each class will have the same number of class opportunities regardless of which day of the week it meets. For convenience, tuition remains flat throughout the year.

In the case that Monarch Movement Company must cancel classes, every effort will be made to schedule make up classes but it may not be possible to meet every person's scheduling needs.

Attendance & Make Ups
Inclement Weather Policy & Procedure

If classes must be canceled or postponed due to inclement weather, you will find this information on the studio's outgoing voicemail message, Monarch social media, and the website home page. Additionally, classes specifically affected will receive an email about schedule changes.

Movers attending drop-in classes - please remember that if you aren't registered for classes we cannot contact you directly! Please check the above places for class schedule updates!

Weather decisions will be made based on conditions at the studio and closely surrounding areas. Please always make attendance decisions based on what is best and safest for your family and your travel route to the studio. We are happy to discuss an opportunity to make up any missed classes.
