All Forefront Arts classes at Benteen will begin the week of September 11th and will follow the APS school calendar.

2023-2024 ENROLLMENT & TUITION DETAILS

A single $35 registration fee covers all Benteen dance & drama programs for the school year!  This fee covers your child's insurance to participate in our programs as well as administrative expenses associated with processing & confirming your registration, monthly class newsletters, and periodic special programs offered to the entire Forefront community.

Classes are a 1-semester commitment.  Fall enrollment automatically carries over to the spring semester unless you provide written notice of withdrawal by emailing Register@ForefrontArts.com by 11/30/2023.  Your child's spot in the various Benteen dance & drama programs is reserved for the year through May 2024 unless you choose to withdraw from spring semester by 11/30/2023 so that we can open up your class spot for a new Spring student.

Enrolled dance & drama families are required to have a card on file in our secure studio software for automatic billing purposes.  Tuition Installments or any class fees will be automatically charged to that card.  You can update the card on file at any time.  

The Dance Recital is included in your Hip Hop Club tuition!

HIP HOP TUITION OPTIONS:

We offer 3 tuition options: upfront for the season, 2 semesterly installments, or 10 equal monthly installments.

  • $69/month x 10 installments (August - December for Fall / Jan - April 15 for Spring) 
  • $325 x 2 Semester Installments (at registration for Fall, and Jan 1 for Spring) -- save $49!
  • $625 upfront (at registration) -- save $74!

 

INSTALLMENT PLANS EXPLAINED:
The total cost for the year can be evenly split into installments for convenience & affordability.  All installment plans must be paid in full by April 15, 2024, and all accounts must be up-to-date for students to attend class or participate in performances or events.  For monthly installments you will pay the same whether your class meets 3, 4, or 5 times that month because you are not paying for those specific weeks in the month, but rather a straight installment plan for the total year.  Enrollment is not month-to-month.  If selecting an installment option families are committing to paying the full amount for the semester, simply split up into smaller monthly payments.
