Registration fee and tuition for August classes are paid at the same time. Invoices will be sent out once the classes have received the minimum amount of participants. Invoices will be sent to the email address provided at registration. Class invoices will be sent by the first class day of each month and will be considered late if not received by the 15th and a $5 LATE FEE - PER DAY - will be added to the following month's invoice. Payment invoices will be sent via the SDA PayPal account. Monthly 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 holiday breaks.
The Winter Holiday Show and Spring Recital will be held locally and the participation cost will be determined by costume selection and incidentals.
