Registration assumes enrollment EITHER for our 10-month program (September through June) and participation in our recital; our 6-week summer program; or one of our Summer Camps.  A non-refundable fee of $30.00 per student is required yearly at time of registration. This fee covers all administrative costs. There will be a $10.00 non-refundable re-start fee for any student that drops and wishes to re-register.  All students must have a signed insurance release form on file. There is no registration fee if you are registering for a Summer Camp.



Tuition is due on the 1st of each month(July 1st for Summer tuition, Day 1 of Summer Camp).  Monthly tuition is not based on the number of classes per month, but rather a yearly fee for the total number of weeks (37 for school year, 6 for summer) provided in our dance season.  Tuition is paid through our electronic funds transfer system from either a credit/debit card or a checking account. Fees are paid monthly, or you can pay for the year in advance. Tuition, registration fees, and costume fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.  A $25 late charge will be applied each month for accounts not paid in full by the 10th of each month. A $25 NSF fee will be applied for all declined credit card transactions.

Upon the completion of your class registration, tuition for the first month along with the registration fee of $30 will automatically be charged unless otherwise specified.



PDC's policy on refunds is that there are NO REFUNDS. If there is an extreme circumstance such as a broken bone, sever illness, etc., a doctor’s note given to us immediately will allow your account to be put on HOLD, until you can resume lessons.

Recital Costumes & Performance Fee

Fall/Spring: End-of-year recital costumes are ordered in December each year.  Costume fees, charged Dec. 1st, range from $60-80, and are non-refundable. Students who do not participate in the June recital are eligible to pick up their costumes at the end of the year.

Spring Recital performance fees($35 per student) are charged March 1st.  This fee covers all costs associated with Recital, and is in lieu of traditional ticket sales.   

There are no costume or performance fees for summer session or summer camps.


Performance Fee

Annual Recital Fee of $35 will be automatically deducted March 1st for each student. No performance fee will be refunded after this date even if a student withdraws from the school.


Attendance and Lateness

Good attendance is necessary to insure maximum progress and enjoyment of class.  The school reserves the right to have students who come more than 10 minutes late to sit out of the class.  A minimum attendance standard will be required.

Required dance attire and dance shoes must be worn to all classes.


Care of Students

The school is not responsible for providing before or after care for students.  Parents with students under the age of 5 must remain in the school during classes.  Students are not to be left at the school for excessive periods of time before or after their classes.



SUMMER: There is a two month minimum for all lessons, therefore NO WITHDRAWALS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER JULY 5th.  

FALL/SPRING: To withdraw from classes a parent or adult student must:

1. Inform school administration in person(30 day notification required)

2. Complete and sign withdrawal form provided by the studio front desk.

WITHDRAWALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER MARCH 1ST, as classes close for registration at that time.  

All automatic bank debiting or credit card charges will stop after the one-month notice period. No refunds will be given for costume fees after December 1st and no refunds will be given for performance fees after March 1. Portland Dance Center reserves the right to terminate lessons to any students without notice. In such a case a refund for unused lessons will be given.
