The yearly registration fee per student is $60.00* due at time of enrollment, and expires the day of the Annual Show. If a student must drop classes for a month or more during the fiscal year for any reason, a re-enrollment fee will be charged upon return.
* Registration Discounts are available for existing students beginning in March for the following year.*
August's tuition is adjusted to a weekly rate since there is not a full month of classes. Each subsequent monthly tuition payment is evenly divided into ten (10) equal payments totaling the yearly cost for each student, due September through June. No tuition adjustments will be made after May 1st. There are no credits given for holidays, absences or bad weather closings.
Monthly tuition is payable in advance during the first ten (10) days of the month, September through May; however, August tuition is due by August 31st and June tuition is due by May 31st.
Payments received AFTER the desk closing hours will be posted the following business day.
For any new students enrolling in THDCI after the year has begun, tuition will be pro-rated. Pro-rated tuition must be pre-approved by a THDCI Director. For new second semester students who perform only one routine in the Annual Show, the June tuition will be discounted.
