Palmetto Performing Arts 2016-2017 Season Policies

Class Pick Up & Drop Off

PPA is not responsible for providing childcare and/or maintaining your personal pick up schedules with the designee responsible for picking up your children. We are always concerned about the safety of all of our dance students and we would prefer that all of the children are being monitored while in the facility.  If you choose to drop your child off please be sure to drop and pick them up from their specific class with their teacher during the designated class time.  


Please do not park in the other business parking lots surrounding PPA.  We are receiving notices from our neighbors concerning improper parking so please use the designated parking including the cul de sac at the end of the road.   

Dance Shoes

Please do not wear your dance shoes outside of PPA.  This will prevent unnecessary expenses on floor repairs from the tears in vinyl and scratches on the hardwood floors from gravel outdoors. 

Annual Fees

The registration fee is $40* per student and due at the time of registration. After the first child, the registration is $30 per child. This is due at the time of registration to hold your spot.

The costume fee of $75* per class is due at the time of registration. Costume fee is non-refundable after Friday, November 18, 2016. Additional costumes are $65. (i.e. if your dancer takes jazz and ballet it will be $75 + $65) Costume fees not paid by November 11, 2016 will not be ordered.  It is important that we order costumes early to ensure that they arrive in time for our picture day and performances.  

*Students registered for Tiny Toes are required to pay a costume $40 fee. They will wear these costumes at their in-house recital in May.


Tuition is paid from September 2016 through May 2017, including December. Tuition is due by the 10th of each month. Any accounts not up to date by the 10th of each month will be charged a late fee of $15 per dancer.
There are no refunds for classes missed; however, you are welcome to make-up with another similar class.

I really appreciate your prompt attention to the updated policies and this will preserve the quality of our facility and the safety of all of our students here at PPA!
