Dancers from Kristin Butke Irish Dance performing with Cherish the Ladies at Wolf Trap.

2020-2021 Tuition & Payment

The Irish dancing year is split into two semesters, February-June and September-January. Tuition is due every month September – June (10 payments). Monthly payment is the same regardless of holidays or breaks. In the event of several cancellations related to inclement weather, Kristin Butke Irish Dance will schedule make-up classes.

Tuition is calculated per dancer, not by family. Add up the number of hours per week each dancer is taking and then use the table below to find the monthly payment. There are discounts for multiple dancers in each family:

  •             1st dancer – full price
  •             2nd dancer – 10% discount
  •             3rd dancer – 20% discount
  •             4th dancer – 30% discount
  •             5th dancer – 40% discount

There will be a 5% discount if you choose to pay your tuition for the semester in a lump sum. There will be two payments: one on September 1 and one on February 1. Please email Tasha at KBIrishDanceBilling@gmail.com if you’d like to pay your semester in full and she will adjust your account to reflect semester payments. 

Should a period of classes 1 month or more are to be missed due to injury or illness, full tuition amount will not be charged. A doctor’s note must be submitted when informing KBID of injury or illness. Upon receipt of doctor’s note, a $60 monthly tuition will be charged for prizewinner and up and $30 monthly tuition will be charged for novice and under. This will retain a dancer’s place in class and give the dancer the opportunity to be present in class and continue to learn and take notes (illness must not be contagious). These rates will be prorated, based on the week of return, should a dancer return within a billing cycle. If injury tuition is not received, the family will be subject to re-enrollment and charged a registration fee upon returning to class.

Please note: if you choose to pay semester in full and take advantage of the discount, there will be absolutely no refunds for any reason, including dancer’s injury.

Tuition is due on the 1st of the month. Any payments unpaid after 5 days will incur a 10% late fee charge.  Bounced checks will also incur a $30 charge.  Payments made online with a credit card, but credit card payments will incur a 3% convenience fee.  NO CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT ANY CLASS LOCATIONS.

Annual Registration Fee

On September 1, each family will be charged an annual registration fee.  These fees go towards KBID expenses that benefit all dancers, such as parades, showcase, and Kristin Butke Irish Dance spirit nights.  Fees per family are listed below:

  •             Families with 1 dancer – $65
  •             Families with 2 or more dancers – $95

Any family that joins Kristin Butke Irish Dance after February 1 will be charged 50% of the registration fee shown above.
