HeartBeat classes are ongoing from September through June. Tuition is charged on the 1st of every month from the time of registration through June. Dancers may register at any time during the month, between September and January.
**Tuition is not prorated for starting late in the month. You will be charged full tuition for the month that you register in. If you register after the last class of the month takes place, tuition will be applied to the upcoming month.
For example, enrolling in a Tuesday Jazz class:
- If you register between the first and last Tuesday of September, you will be charged September tuition.
- If you register after the last Tuesday of September, the charge will be applied to October tuition, and your dancer will start in October.
Tuition is calculated based on an annual fee for the calendar year which is divided into 10 monthly installments. Monthly installments are automatically charged on the 1st of every month and require a credit card on file with Auto-Pay.

Enroll in class for Zoom Only for entire season, or until you cancel (normal tuition is charged)
*Please add your dancer to the waitlist upon registration and email us with your preference. Dancers will remain in the same order on the waitlist regardless of preferences.

All classes will be recorded via Zoom and kept for up to 1 month. Dancers may also attend a makeup in a same or lower level class. If you would like to schedule an alternate makeup or need the link to access a previously recorded class, please email us! *We do not prorate for missed classes, late registrations or holidays.
