The Washington Rock Dance year runs from September through June. Tuition is calculated by the number of class hours per week taken by an individual student or family. We offer a sliding scale discount to any student or family who is enrolled more than 1 hour of class per week. The amount you pay per hour decreases with the more classes you take!
There are a total of 10 tuition installments and it is to be paid in 9 payments:
Payment #1- Upon registration the 1st and 10th installments due

Please note payments are not made for the number of classes each month, the payment is the annual tuition divided into 10 equal payments.
WRD accepts cash, check, and credit card payments. All families must have a credit card on file even if cash or check is used to make payments.
