Tuition is for 46 lessons per year (August 2022-July 2023) and is payable monthly.  There will be no lessons on Labor Day Monday (9/6/2022), Thanksgiving Break, (11/21-25/2022), Christmas Break (12/19/2022-1/1/2023), Spring Break (3/13-17/2023), or Summer Break (in July 2023, TBA).  NOTE: This schedule is updated yearly and communicated to existing students via email. 

  3. In the event of inclement weather (or another serious local situation), our studio will close in conjunction with plans of local school districts.  Since our hours differ slightly from school districts, we reserve the final decision to our studio owner and we pledge to communicate via text in a timely manner to inform affected students & families.
