School of Contemporary Dance Tuition & Fees

2019-2020 Tuition

Tuition is calculated on a yearly basis. Enrollment for 2019-2020 classes continues from registration through Sunday, June 7th. Payment is due at the time of registration for all registrations. All accounts will have a $30 registration fee per family as well as a $30 performance fee for the first class, and $10 for each additional class. Registration and performance fees are non-refundable. Tuition is payable by cash, check or credit card at the studio, or online by credit card.

Option #1: Pay for the entire year with our Annual Plan and save 5% on your annual tuition. Kinetics encourages and appreciates annual tuition payments to simplify our bookkeeping and accounting procedures.

Option #2: Pay bi-monthly in four equal payments with our Installment Plan. This option reflects our base tuition rates. All accounts following this option must have a valid credit card on file and will be set up for automatic/recurring billing. The credit card on file will be charged on the following dates for the rates listed below:

First Installment – Due at registration
Second Installment – Due Nov. 1st
Third Installment – Due Jan. 2nd
Final Installment – Due March 1st

Please note that the chart below applies only to classes run directly by Kinetics for the 2019-2020 season. Classes offered through Howard County Recreation and Parks and our Kinetics Session classes have separate tuition rates and payment options.
