2020-21 QUARTERLY TUITION SCHEDULE 

Dance classes at Twirl run continuously from September 10, 2020 through June 9, 2021.  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 10, November 16, January 25, and April 5. 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 2020-21 season tuition and class options– Twirl is offering both in-person and virtual options for all classes for the 2020-21 season. Tuition is the same for either option. Classes size limits are the same as a normal season, but with social distancing protocols in effect, only nine students can dance at the studio in each class. For classes with a student enrollment that exceeds nine students, the class will operate with a hybrid model. That means that every week nine students 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.

2020-21 quarterly payments are due on September 10, November 16, January 25, and April 5. 

  • 1 hour per week $160 per quarter
  • 2 hours per week $300 per quarter
  • 2.5 hours per week $350 per quarter
  • 3 hours per week $400 per quarter
  • 3.5 hours per week $450 per quarter
  • 4 hours per week $490 per quarter
  • 4.5 hours per week $540 per quarter
  • 5 hours per week $570 per quarter
  • 5.5 hours per week $620 per quarter
  • 6 hours per week $650 per quarter

*Family Discount: There is a tuition discount for families with two or more siblings enrolled in paid classes. The sibling with the higher tuition will be charged full price and additional siblings with the same or lower tuition will receive a 10% discount on the quarterly tuition. Family discounts are not valid for Twirl Summer Camps.

Note: The only 30 minute class currently offered is Pre-Pointe.
