January was a crazy month with the New Year holiday, snow and ice days, and even Teacher Charisma being ill. We wanted to let our families know we have done some adjustments in class fees for these missed classes. You may view the discounted class fees by your history in your family portal.
Christmas costume fees: We still have some costumes not paid for and are being updated. You will see costume fee and rental adjustments back in October ‘23 when deposits were first billed to your portals. You may find this in your financial history. *Performance tights & undergarments are being billed from Maralee’s Boutique. If you have any questions feel free to ask anytime.
Showcase ‘24 Costume Deposit: $35 will be posted in your family portals on February 15th. Each student that is currently enrolled will incur these fees, except for those who are enrolled in technique dance class. We use these fees to order your dancers costumes, which can take up to 12 weeks of processing.
Competitions: We are so excited to be bringing back competitions. It's been a tough few years due to covid shutting so many things down. We will only be selecting a few groups for this season. There are additional fees, extra class time dedication for those who are involved.
Maralee’s Square Boutique: These will be separate billing for any dance wear item, IE; dance shoes, performance tights, undergarments, leotards, any Maralee’s dance logo wear, sweatshirts, t-shirts, dance bags, garment bags, etc. At the end of December 2023 we took ANY REMAINING invoices NOT PAID and placed them on your family portal. *You can look in the notes of the item to find when your actual boutique item was billed to you.
Coming Soon: Maralee’s Dance New Logo Wear Sweats, sweatshirts with our new MARALEE’S OMBRÉ logo. Watch for it to come Really Soon!!!

Welcome New Dance Families!
We know some of you may have just joined our dance family. When you first enrolled, your first payments would have included your Enrollment fee. We will go in and adjust your first month's lessons. (Some of you may have not set up a payment on your account so this balance is still due.)
We want to be sure you have selected your monthly Auto Payment Date to process each month. (You can choose your payment date to either the 5th, 15th or 20th). You can cancel, change or update your payment information right in your family portal.
To get your auto payment set up: Go to your personal family portal, open up, choose from your selections from the top left corner lines, look for edit payment on file. Input the card you want to use for your monthly tuition and continue through check out. BE SURE TO SELECT YOUR PAYMENT DATE. Only pay if you still have a balance from your Enrollment fee. You can change the total amount due by highlighting the amount showing. We will then process your monthly payment on your selected date.
