  • Please make payments online or deposit payments in the Payment Box in the studio (payable to GDDA). The full monthly rate MUST be paid each month regardless of absenteeism or holidays.
  • Company Dues are already built in to your tuition so there are no additional company dues charged. (Competition dancers will incur competition fees, travel expenses, and possibly private lesson fees as needed.)
