Georgia Dance Conservatory Studio Policies
GDC’s Registration Fee is non-refundable and reserves a dancer’s spot in class.
Returning Families Registration Fee: $15 per student
New Families Registration Fee: $30 per student
Monthly tuition is calculated by 36 weeks of classes and prorated over 10 months from August through May.
Tuition is due by the 1st of each month.
Monthly autopay option is available and highly encouraged.
To reduce the amount of traffic in the studio, all payments should be made online through GDC’s Studio Director online payment portal.
GDC Family Discount
GDC’s Family Discount Rates are designed for families with two or more dancers who are taking multiple classes per week.
To qualify for GDC’s Family Discount, you must meet the following qualifications:
- Two or more dancers in your immediate family
- Total family weekly in-person hours of 7 or more
Additional terms and conditions apply. Family discount rates are not automatically applied. To request the family discount, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All GDC classes culminate in an end of the year recital performance (unless they are specifically designated as a non-recital class). This allows the dancers to get a full dance experience from the classroom to the stage.

Late Payments/Returned Checks
All fees are due in full by the first of each month. Any accounts that are not paid in full by the 5th will be assessed a 10% late fee. Students with accounts over 30 days past due will be suspended from class participation until the account is current.
- If your family is experiencing financial hardship, please reach out to GDC office manager Tori Hines at email@example.com so we can work with you directly.

In the event of a studio closure due to COVID-19, GDC will continue to hold classes online via Zoom.
In the event GDC is unable to hold a recital due to COVID-19, Performance Fees will be credited to your GDC account and the credit may be used toward any future GDC balance. No refunds will be issued.
