PERFORMANCES AND COMPETITIONS
If your dancer has been invited by the teacher to participate in the Surrey Festival of Dance or any other competition, you have the right to accept or decline.
Entry fees apply to dance competitions and range from $15 - $80 per student in 2021 at competitions, depending on whether it is a group, trio, duo, or solo entry. Plus extra admin costs and rental of rehearsal space.
Please let us know whether you would like to be a part of this. Fees due Nov-Dec each year for competitions happening in Feb-May.
In June we will have a year-end show. There is no extra fee to participate, but audience members, including parents, will need to purchase a ticket.
All tickets $12 each, but children 4 and under are free.
Parents helping with tickets and other recital tasks: most tickets are free, but please confirm with Donna if you would like a free ticket
We charge each dancer an annual registration fee of $20. If you are registering several people in the same family at the same time we offer a discounted rate of $35 per family.
Your registration fee covers both gymnastics at Chilliwack Gymnastics Club, which is in the same building, and dance at Chilliwack Dance School.
If you have already registered for gymnastics this year, you do not have to pay the $20 registration fee for dance classes.
DANCE CLASS FEES
All regular group classes have the same fee structure.
All prices include GST and apply to our 10-month dance season from September to June
Weekly 30 min classes: $390 per year, or $39 per month
Weekly 45 min classes: $490 per year, or $49 per month
Weekly 60 min classes: $590 per year, or $59 per month

Half Hour Private Lesson: $26
Half Hour Semi-Private Lesson: $17.50 each ($35 total)
For longer times just do the math. No discounts for longer private lessons.
Multiple Classes of One Style
If your dancer participates in two group classes of the same style of dance you pay for the total time of that style, not for two classes.
Example: If your child takes tap choreo for ages 8 - 10 and tap choreo for ages 10 – 12 and tap technique for a total of 90 minutes, you will be billed for 90 minutes. However, please note that solos and duos are calculated separately.
Prices are as follows, with "year" meaning ten months from September to June:
90 min per week of one style: $760 per year, or $76 per month
1 hr 45 min per week of 1 style: $840 per year, or $84 per month
Pay for 3 classes of dance covering 3 styles for any one dancer, and get a 4th class free. Example: pay for hip hop, ballet, and tap. Get lyrical or jazz or acro for free. One of your paid classes may be gymnastics, downstairs in the Chilliwack Gymnastics Club. Solos and duos not included.
For details about short-term classes and rates, see the prices on the schedule.

You are responsible for providing your dancer with proper dance clothing and footwear for class. This includes tap shoes for tap classes, and ballet shoes for ballet classes. Come dressed to move - stretchy clothing is ideal, particularly body suit and tights. For hip hop classes running shoes are fine. Baton classes: you must purchase a baton that fits your dancer. We can supply one if that makes it easier. Cost will be whatever the going rate is at the time, probably about $30.
Costumes are required for participation in competitions, parades, and in the year-end show/recital in June. We encourage all students to participate.
We make an effort to keep costume costs down to $45 - $80 per dancer per dance. Some could be a bit more or cheaper. For solos and small groups there may be costumes available for rent. Rental price is $13 per full costume.
Most of our costumes are purchased from a costume company.
It is the teacher's choice whether you will be expected to find or sew your own costume, rent from the studio, buy one on your own that the teacher has chosen, or buy one that the teacher has purchased.
