The tuition scale will go up on July 1, 2020.  The rates listed here apply for all classes until that time.  If you are registering for summer or fall classes, you will be charge the current rates during registration time.  On July 1, all accounts will be charged the new rate for all unpaid months.  For example, if you participate in our Early Bird registration, you will receive the current registration fee as shown above for first month, last month, and registration less your discount.  Beginning September 1, you will be charged the new rate for the remaining months.  You are welcome to pay for as many months and receive the lower rate. 

If you plan on taking classes in June and July, you can pay for both months at the current rate.  Again, on July 1 all rates will increase.  Also, during June and July, we will prorate a month if you plan on being out of town.  In other words, if you plan on taking 6 out of the 8 weeks of summer, we will charge you for 6 weeks only.  This is only for June and July.
TCFA tuition is paid monthly,and it is due by the 10th of each month.  There is an annual registration fee of $30 for new students, and $25 for returning students.  In addition, TCFA offers a $5 discount on monthly tuition and registration fee for each additional family member that joins the TCFA program. 
After the 10th, a late fee of $10 will be charged.  There is a 1.5% penalty on any unresolved balance.

TCFA also offers a main stage production each year in May.  All dancers are encouraged to participate, although it is not a requirement.  Dance is a performing art, and concluding the season with a spring concert is all part of the performing experience.  The recital fees are as follows:

                                                                                                Creative Movement/ID                                            
Ballet A-D, Premiere In one (1) Dance Only             
Ballet A-D, Premiere In 2 or More Recital Dances   


Fees are due by January 6, but may be paid early or in installments.  Additional students within a family may receive $5 off recital fee.  This would be parents and siblings living at the same address.  The discount does not extend to cousins, etc.  All fees paid are non refundable.  Each family receives 2 complimentary tickets with their recital packet if fees are paid and accounts are current.  Families with more than one (1) dancer receives only 2 tickets in their folder.  This is why siblings pay a reduced fee for recital.  Additional tickets can be purchased for the performance.

The recital fee covers, but is not limited to, the following:  costume rental for all classes (student provides tights, shoes, and flesh leotard), sitting fees for portraits, 2 complimentary tickets (only for the first student in family-only 2 tickets are distributed per household/family), music royalties, theater rental, props, sets, and other miscellaneous items. 

The 2019-2020 Season recital is Cinderella & Journeys Around the World, at the Clayton Performing Arts Center at Pellissippi College, Hardin Valley Campus.  Dancers will receive their exact rehearsal day and time, as well as performance day and time in March.  Dress rehearsal begins the week prior to the performance.  Dancers typically rehearse 1-2 times on stage.  However, if a dancer is in numerous classes or an advanced class, there may be more rehearsal times/days involved.
