How to Make a Payment

Tuition can be paid annually or monthly. Annual tuition should be paid in full at your first class, or you can split that into 10 monthly payments.

Monthly payments are paid from September through June and remain the same amount regardless of whether it's a 3-week, 4-week, or 5-week month. Monthly tuition is due on the 1st of the month. A $25 late fee will be added if payment is not received by the 15th of each month. Statements will not be sent out unless the payment is overdue.

Gotta Dance accepts cash, check, Venmo payments or automatic credit card withdrawals.

Please note that a $5 processing fee will be applied to each payment. There will be a $25 late fee if payment is not received by the 15th of each month.

You can bring your tuition check to the studio at your first class of each month, or it can be mailed to:  Gotta Dance, 101 Brick Kiln Road, #4, Chelmsford, MA 01824. There is a $25 NSF fee for all checks that are returned by the bank.


Annual Recital Fees

Performance Tickets
Our annual performance is held each year in June. Recital tickets will run between $24-$26 each. Ticket sale information can be found here.

Costume Fees
Costume prices range from $65-$85 per class. Costumes must be ordered well in advance, so a $45 (per costume) deposit is due the first week of November. Balances will be due on or before the last day of February. Dancers will receive their costumes upon arrival starting in March once their balance is paid in full. Refunds will not be given and costumes cannot be returned.

Recital Fee
In order for us to keep our ticket prices affordable, hire a videographer, reserve the venue, use professional lights and sound, pay our staff, purchase props, etc., we require all of our families to pay a Recital Fee. Our current fee is as follows:

  • $50 per single recital dancer – includes video link and a recital t-shirt
  • $80 per family with 2 dancers - includes video link and recital t-shirts for 2 dancers
  • $100 per family with 3+ dancers – includes video link and recital t-shirts for all dancers in the family
  • Extra t-shirts can be ordered for other family members on Ticket Day.

The recital fee is due on or before March 31st. We can only accept cash, a check (payable to "Karrie Mason") or Venmo payment (@Karrie-Mason-3). Please drop your check in the tuition box (with "Recital Fee" in the memo portion) or Venmo your payment no later than March 31st.

Performance Videos
Gotta Dance is pleased to provide HD digital download links for the recital video via Katie Shaw Productions. This makes fees less expensive for you, gets the video to you sooner and improves quality overall. Those still wanting a hard copy will be able to download the file and save it how they wish. Those who don't want to download it can view the performances online.
