Policies

Look through the policies here at Dorothy Keck Dancers to understand tuition, withdrawal, and more. If you have any questions, call or stop by our dance studio, to talk to one of our knowledgeable and courteous staff members.

Tuition Policies

You can view our tuition rates on our Rates page. Each rate is determined by how many hours a student dances at our studio. To get discounts on tuition, you can enroll in auto pay, pay for three months at a time, or pay for the whole year at once. Since rates differ based on how much you or your child spends in our classes, the amount you save will differ as well. However, the staff members at our dance studio are happy to discuss the details with you.
