The 2022/2023 - School Year season classes are offered once a week - on TUESDAYS - starting the week of August 8th, 2022 and ending the week of May 16th, 2023.

Registration fee and tuition for August classes are paid at the time of sign up. Class invoices will be sent by the first class day of each month and will be considered late if not received by the 10th and a $10 LATE FEE will be added to the following month's invoice. Payment invoices will be sent via the SDA PayPal account. Tuition is not based off of the number of classes per month, as some months have 5 weeks. This allows for us to follow the Cobb County school calendar and not have classes during breaks.
The Winter Holiday Show and Spring Recital will be held locally and the participation cost will be determined by costume selection and incidentals.
