I highly recommend Twirl! I drive 20 minutes one way so that my 5 and 8-year-old girls can dance there. Twirl is like family to me, and I love being a small part of it!

2021-22 QUARTERLY TUITION SCHEDULE 

Dance classes at Twirl run continuously from September 9, 2021 through June 8, 2022.  Although, tuition is charged in four quarterly installments, enrollment is open through January and families can register any time during this time period.

Quarterly tuition payments are due on September 9, November 15, January 24, and March 28. Families that enroll in classes before the season begins will pay the registration fee at the time of enrollment. The first tuition payment will be charged on September 10. Families that register after the season has begun will pay prorated tuition for the quarter that they join and continue with quarterly payments through the rest of the season. The number of classes per quarter may be inconsistent depending on which days of the week classes fall on, therefore, quarterly tuition charges reflect annual tuition costs divided by four.

A Note about 2021-22 season tuition and class options– Twirl is offering both in-person and virtual options for all classes for the 2021-22 season. Tuition is the same for either option. Classes size limits are the same as a normal season, and until social distancing guidelines are adjusted, eleven to thirteen students can dance at the studio in each class depending on the room. For classes with a student enrollment that exceeds socially distant student limits, the class will operate with a hybrid model. That means that every week eleven to thirteen students (depending on the room) will be in person at the studio and the remainder will Zoom in from home. This will rotate weekly. As situations change, families can switch from virtual only to in-person classes and vice versa at any time.
