Tuition Information

Seasonal Tuition (September-May) is based strictly on the time length of the classes and the location in which they occur (with the exception of Leveled and Adult Classes which sometimes occur at Martell Tu). Tuition is NOT based on the style of dance or the faculty member conducting the class. 

*There are two different age ratios for tuition. One for Martell Tu (Mommy & Me – 5th Grade) and one for Martell Main (6th Grade & up/Levels). Levels Classes being held at the Martell Tu location as well as Adult Classes still fall under the Martell Main Fee Schedule.

Tuition is based on the nine month dance season. Tuition can be paid yearly, semi-annually, or in nine equal monthly installments. All classes are to be paid for whether attended or not, however, students are entitled to take a make-up class. We do not have a “pay per class” option, unless you are an adult student or visiting temporarily from out of town. PLEASE NOTE: There are no refunds on tuition payments.

REGISTRATION FEE: There is an annual Registration Fee which is based on our Dance Season (September through August). The annual Registration Fee DOES NOT cover enrollment for special events such as Cavs Performances, Christmas Shows, and other events that require rehearsal times outside of our regular dance schedule. Events such as these are subject to a Performance Fee which covers the rehearsal time of the Instructor conducting the event.

The fee to register for the dance season is $30 per family. The Fee to register late (after September 6th) is $40.


MONTHLY PAYMENTS: Anyone who chooses to pay monthly is required to have a credit card on file with Martell School of Dance. Monthly tuition can be paid by cash, check or credit card before the 7th of every month. If tuition is not paid by the 7th, your card will be automatically charged the monthly tuition. If you decline a card on file and do not pay tuition by the 7th of the month, your account will assess a $15 late fee. If tuition and late fee are not paid by the end of the month, Martell School of Dance cannot allow your dancer to continue with classes until the account is paid in full. 

If you wish to have your credit card automatically charged for monthly tuition, you may choose a payment date of the 28th, 1st or 7th of every month. 

SEMI ANNUAL PAYMENTS: Anyone choosing to make two payments for the 9 month dance year must make these payments by Monday, September 12th and Monday, January 9th. Dancers will not be allowed to participate if payments are not made on time.

ANNUAL PAYMENT: Anyone choosing to pay in full for the 9 month dance year will receive 10% off their entire tuition. This payment must be paid in full by Monday, September 26th in order to receive the discount.

NOTE: Any person who submits a bad check will be charged the fee that the bank debits our account in addition to re-payment of tuition. 


CANCELLATION OF ENROLLMENT – NOTICE REQUIRED It will be assumed that you will continue with your/your child’s dance education, consecutively, each month upon registering in the fall for the season. Should you wish to discontinue enrollment/class participation, we ask that you submit a notice in writing PRIOR to the new month of classes. If we do not receive such notification, it will be expected that the monthly tuition will be due in full on the 1st of the new month. If cancellation of classes is related to injury or other extenuating circumstances, please request a personal meeting with Rachel Yunker.


TUITION CYCLES & HOLIDAYS Tuition is calculated on a monthly basis. Within the dance season, like in academic seasons, there are designated holidays that Martell School of Dance honors. We are in session for minor holidays such as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Columbus Day, Presidents Day, etc. We follow the Akron Public Schools Yearly Calendar when observing holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas / Winter Break, and Easter/Spring Break. 



 1. Anyone choosing to pay their tuition in full for the 9 month season (September- May) will receive 10% off their entire tuition.

 2. Anyone who refers a student to Martell who then registers for the September – May dance year (2017-2018) will receive a discount towards one month of tuition equal to the new students tuition.

3.  The first two classes per student or family are full price. Each class after the first two receives a discount of $20 per class, per month. Ex: a $45/month class becomes $25/month.

4.     Any family with 2 or more students dancing will receive $5 off their monthly tuition PER additional family member.
