Tuition & Fees

New to dance? 
Always register risk-free with Leslieville School Of Dance. 
No registration fees & No cancellation fees for any dance classes.

We are a family-owned and operated business and understand all too well how difficult it can be to make long-term financial commitments when it comes to your child’s recreational programming.  Risk-free registration means exactly that.  

Here’s how it works:  First we recommend doing a trial class before completing the registration process.  Our session runs 10 months but if, for any reason, you need to withdraw from the class, please provide 30 days’ written notice by email.  From March to August, there won’t be an opportunity to do a trial class so we recommend registering for your chosen class so you don’t lose the spot.  If it doesn’t work out during the first month of classes, we will refund your payment minus the classes already taken (for dance classes only). 

There are some things we cannot refund: 

  • Dancewear purchases (once worn)
  • Costume fees – We order our costumes specifically for each dancer and once they are ordered we cannot be reimbursed for those costs. 
  • Summer dance session tuition – Due to the limited spots available in the summer session, we cannot provide a refund for summer dance classes nor can we offer trial classes during the summer.


  • All tuition is calculated on a 10-month dance year and is prorated based on the total number of classes in the session (taking into account holiday closures).  Tuition is not prorated for classes missed due to student absence.  We will only pause or prorate tuition for medical reasons on a case-by-case basis with approval from the director.
  • Convenient Monthly Payments – Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments and charged on the 1st of the month.  For example, October’s tuition is charged on October 1st.
  • Individual class tuition is listed on each class on our interactive schedule. Hover over the class you are interested in to see the monthly tuition.


  • Leslieville School Of Dance applies a family discount of 10% on tuition fees for subsequent children who dance within the same family.  We also offer a multi-class discount of 10% for all additional classes.  Discounts can be combined and are calculated automatically at checkout.


  • Performance Fee: Includes a costume, alterations, performance video, and medal for each dancer participating in the year-end performance.
  • Preschool-age classes are not charged a performance fee as their performance is in-studio and costumes will be provided for them to borrow.
  • A $25 fee will be charged for all NSF payments. After 2 NSF payments, pre-payment will be required.
