A full payment is due each month regardless of the number of classes attended by a student. Monthly installments are the same regardless of how many weeks may occur during any given month.

Fees and expenses
There will be a non-refundable $175* fee per dancer, due no later than November 15, 2018. This fee includes: one costume, tights, recital t-shirt, 2 tickets to the recital and a program per dancer.
If your dancer takes more than one class, the additional costume fees will be as follows (price is per costume):
$100 up to Large Adult
$120 XL Adult
$130 XXL Adult
All costume fees will be due by November 15, 2018. A costume will be ordered for each dancer, for each class. No refunds will be given. There will be no exceptions.
Your fall Sarris and Oakbrook Fundraising is encouraged to pay this fee, but is not required. We have many clients who have never paid for a costume out of their pocket.
*$10 additional for XL Adult; $20 additional for XXL Adult; $50 additional for Combo 4 - 5 classes (they will have either convertible costumes or one formal costume and one studio made costume).
Other Costs In addition to class fees listed, you should anticipate expenses for the following:
Tights (different classes require different types) (recital tights are included in costume fee!)
Shoes (Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Hip Hop)
Batons - purchase at O.B. Fawleys across from Kroger in Sabraton.
Production tickets beyond the two included with your fee, for all guests. ($15 per ticket in advance; $20 per ticket at the door on recital day)
Optional expenses may include sweatshirt, sweatpants, t-shirts, yearbook ad(s), Opening Number tuition, Production pictures and Production DVD.
In September, we will begin our fundraising efforts to assist each student in paying for dance costume(s) by selling Sarris Candies Holiday Program and Oakbrook Favorites - Auntie Anne's pretzels, Strombolies, Cheesecakes, french bread pizzas, cookie dough and magazine subscriptions. This is an excellent fundraiser and the items are very easy to sell. Fundraising is optional, but we strongly recommend it!
We will do another fundraiser in the beginning of 2019 to help with other costs such as recital video purchase, dance pictures, and yearbook ads.
