Fee Schedule At Cashel Dennehy
We charge full price for the first two dancers in a family, a discounted price for the third dancer (third dancer = third child in a family to join the school) and the fourth dancer is free. *If the 3rd/4th dancer discount may apply to you, please contact Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
At Cashel Dennehy, we offer 11 months of regular classes – September through July. In August there are no regular classes, but we do have Irish Fest practices and vacation time.
The Beginner class comes to $875 for the 11 months of classes. For each dancer, payment for the full year is required. How you choose to pay this amount is up to you. You may choose to pay your dues by one of the following four methods – please check off your choice on the space indicated on the Class Selection Form.
- 12 Installments (Monthly):
Each installment is due the first week of every month September – August
* Please note that monthly installment payments are not payments for a specific month of classes. For example, your payment the first week of October is not specific to the classes taken/provided in the month of October. The monthly installment fee is the full year price divided by 12. Throughout the year, each month has a different amount of classes provided simply because of how the days fall on the calendar, holidays, competitions, performance opportunities, etc. Monthly installments are broken up this way to give you an equal amount to pay each month and to help all families be able to keep track of their payments in an easy manner.
