Recital Fees

Dance Recital Fee: $35.00/per family; Due annually on April 15th.

         The Recital Fee applies to the cost of renting the facility and other costs associated with putting on the performance. Tickets to the show are a separate fee. We do recognize that participating in the recital is costly, therefore we do offer up to 4 complimentary tickets per family. Once tickets are available, you may request your free tickets in the SDC Office. If you do not need all of your tickets, you are invited to donate your extra tickets to a larger family!

ANAMAX PARK STUDENTS ONLY: Registration and tuition for classes held at Anamax Park is handled completely through Sahuarita Parks and Rec. You can register in person at Anamax Park or online at http://activenet3.active.com/sahuarita/. Anamax Park Classes are held in 6 or 8 week sessions. Tuition for these classes is calculated separately from tuition at our other locations and is not eligible for a multi-class discount. Students enrolled only at Anamax Park do not participate in the annual recital and are not subject to the recital or registration fees. The holiday schedule for Anamax Park classes may differ from Sahuarita Dance Center’s other classes.

WHAT DO THE FEES PAY FOR?

Registration Fee: This helps pay for administration costs, insurance, bank fees, and other upkeep associated with keeping a business alive.

Dance Tuition: Tuition pays for teachers, facility rental, props, music, taxes and a myriad of other items.

Dance Recital Costume Fee: This is used to pay for costumes or at least comes close to paying for them. Each year some of the total costume costs have to be subsidized with tuition as well.

Dance Recital Fee: This fee goes toward paying recital expenses.  Rental of the recital facility each year costs thousands of dollars. Other recital costs include lights, gels, fog machine, equipment, music, programs, decorations, payroll, etc. While we never make a profit with recital, it is essential to developing a student’s character and is a reward for all their hard work throughout the year.

Dance Costume Rental Fee (For Performing Teams Only):  This fee pays for the multiple costumes used by each student on the performance teams throughout the year. These costumes are recycled as much as possible to keep costs down. These costumes are turned in at the end of the year. Our goal is to use them for two or three years. The fee is applied to costume maintenance and repairs or may be applied towards the purchase of new costumes.
