MONTHLY PAYMENTS

Dance Capital charge for all classes via monthly payment. Using this way to pay, you only need to insert your card details once and the payment will come off on the 1st of every month in advance of lessons. Class fees are required regardless of absence. 

TERMS

Classes are split into 5 terms. The shortest term is Term 5 which means the payments for those months will be less.
