Private Lessons


Not Included in Tuition

Not included are required clothing items, costumes, recital tickets, method and/or theory books, class supplies, additional private lessons, and competition fees/transportation costs.

Payment Options

Beyond Center Stage allows for two payment options: • Payment in full (due at the time of registration) • 9 payments due on the 15th of each month for our Sept-May Session (Auto-Pay)

How Tuition is Calculated

For enrolled students, tuition is calculated based on a full school-year session of 32 weeks. For monthly payments, BCS splits payments for 32 weeks of classes/lessons evenly over 9 payments. Each payment does not equate to 4 weeks of tuition.

Late Enrollments

Students who enroll after the session has already begun will pay a prorated tuition. Registration fee and 1st prorated payment are due at the time of enrollment.


BCS offers a 10% discount on tuition for the 2nd and each subsequent sibling in a family.

Late Fees & Returned Checks

Return check fee: $25. Late Tuition fee: $20, applied after 7 days of overdue tuition, and additionally applied every 30 days a balance remains overdue. Costume payment late fee for rush orders: $40.

Overdue Balances

If tuition becomes 7 days overdue, student attendance is suspended until tuition is paid. All missed classes/lessons count as an absence during this suspension period. A $20 late fee will be applied. Students with a tuition payment that is overdue for 15 days will be dropped from classes & lessons, and an invoice will be mailed for the amount due.


Beyond Center Stage is a private organization, and rates are subject to change.

Withdrawal & Transfer Procedures

Guarantee: For all new students, BCS offers a no-risk 30-day guarantee. Students may enroll for 30 days, and if they are not entirely happy, they may withdraw from the studio with no penalty. Class/Lesson Transfers: There is no penalty for transferring to a different class of the same length, or transferring a private lesson to an alternative instructor. Transfers must be competed before January 20th for classes participating in the recital. Class/Lesson Withdrawals: For students who wish to withdraw from a certain class or lesson but remain an active enrolled student at BCS, there is a $10 withdrawal fee per class or lesson. This does not apply to new students in their first 30 days of enrollment. Studio Withdrawals: If a student wishes to leave the studio due to dissatisfaction or a new scheduling conflict, a parent (or student, if over 18) must submit a withdrawal form through our website, or by stopping into our main office. Withdrawal forms must be received 30 days prior to the withdrawal date. A student will not be withdrawn from the studio until a withdrawal form has been received, completed in full. Final prorated tuition will be charged upon the withdrawal notice. No refunds or credits are given for costume payments. This policy does not apply for new students within their first 30 days of enrollment. Recital Classes: Out of fairness and respect for other students participating in end-of-year performances, no withdrawals will be granted after January 20th for any classes that are participating in performances. Long-Term Injuries: See our group class policy in the Parent & Student Handbook for withdrawal due to a long-term injury.


BCS does not issue refunds for any reason. Class credits may be issued under certain circumstances. See the Parent & Student Handbook for more information regarding credits.
