Tuition is always due on the first of the month August through May. We prefer for families to elect to have payments made automatically via their online accounts or you may pay by cash, check, or credit at the studio. Any payments made after the 5th of each month will incur a $25 late fee and any credit transactions that come back as invalid will incur a $5 service charge.
Yes! Siblings receive 10% off their total tuition each month. And if you pay the year’s tuition in full by August 1st you can save 10%. Be sure to ask about our military and public school teacher discounts as well.
Each dance, movement, and art style has different requirements. Please be sure to check out our family handbook for detailed information on what is required for each class. While we do not have color requirements, we do expect all students to come to class dressed appropriately in leotards, tights, and/or dance and yoga pants with hair pulled back and away from the face. This is important in showing respect for the art form and your teachers. Please visit our friends at Releve Dancewear in Cary for all of your dance wear needs. They have a talented and knowledgeable staff to help you find the perfect fit for shoes and attire.
  • No loose fitting clothing in any class
  • Hair should ALWAYS be pulled back and away from the face

  • Our end of year Showcase is a celebration of our growth and development in the arts and is sure to be the highlight of your Open Arts experience.

We can’t wait to celebrate our journey together with you!
