Family Discount: Creator’s Arts Centre applies a family discount of 5% on tuition fees to the second child, 10% for the third & 15% for subsequent children who dance within the same family. The discount is applied to the child(ren) taking the same amount of classes or less than the child with the most classes. This discount is only for 10 month programs and not short term ones.

Tuition Discounts: The more classes a student registers for, the more affordable the hourly tuition rate will be! Our dancers max out at 9 hours of class time per week, so any class time over this limit is FREE! Multiple class discounts will be reflected in the final screen during the registration process.

Unless otherwise noted, all classes are 10 month programs (September-June). Monthly tuition charges are the class tuition fees divided into 10 month payments for your convenience. Each class offered is guaranteed a minimum of 34 Classes between September and June.

  • Students will not receive costumes until they are paid for in full. If costume fees are outstanding at the time of the recital, that child will not dance in the final production.
  • Registration fees are $15 and are due annually at the time the student registers and goes towards administrative fees and Studio SOCAN fees.
