Fees

  • $30 Registration Fee per family
  • $30 Performance Fee per student
  • $10 Performance Fee per class

Please carefully read the Performance Fee Policy below:

Performance Fees

  • Registration & Performance Fees are non-refundable. 
  • Performance Fees for Performing Classes: All KDT classes for students ages 3-17 are considered performing classes. Performing classes are charged performance fees to help offset the costs related to the School’s annual Spring Showcase performance. Kinetics is proud to provide showcase costumes to families free-of-charge, where other studios require families to purchase new costumes each year. In addition to maintaining a costume inventory, performance fees help cover the cost of the venue rental, creative licensing, and administrative processes. Performing in the Spring Showcase is completely optional; families are encouraged to make a decision that best suits their student’s needs/interests. However, please be advised that students who opt out of the year-end performance are not eligible for a performance fee refund, as their entire class is taken into consideration as showcase preparations begin at the start of the school year. 
  • Refunded Performance Fee for Non-Performing Classes: Our registration portal automatically applies performance fees to all classes. Performance fees applied to non-performing classes, including adult classes and dance conditioning, will be refunded. Patrons enrolled in the Installment Plan will receive the performance fee refund in the form of an account credit that will be directly applied towards the next installment payment. Patrons enrolled in the Annual Plan will receive a refund to their credit card. Please allow our Registrar 3-5 business days to refund performance fees, as this is a manual process. 

Payment Options  

Annual Plan: Receive a 5% discount off tuition by paying for the entire year in advance! Here’s how it works:

  • The Registrar will update Annual Plan accounts to reflect the 5% discount and then immediately process payment by charging the card on file.
  • Families who select the Annual Plan option should register for ALL desired classes at one time.
  • By selecting the Annual Plan option, patrons are agreeing to have the card on file automatically charged for the Annual Payment amount, in addition to fees.
