First payment may be paid by cash, check, or credit card. LDS prefers cash and checks for all payments but also accepts VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER AND American Express. The studio must have a credit card number on file from each LDS family so that 2nd, 3rd, and costume payments are paid on time. If payment is not in by the 1st week of the new semester, payment automatically will appear on credit card.
All LDS students ages five and above will be required to participate in our annual production of The Nutcracker which will be performed Sunday, December 3rd, 2023. There will be a required registration fee of $300 per LDS student/$325 for other dance students which will be due at Nutcracker auditions TBA. There will also be fundraisers to defray costs of the production. All students love to perform in this holiday classic. This year there will be a required number of tickets each participant must sell for our production this year. By registering, you are agreeing to all policies of LDS. Should they change, we will notify you in advance. We cannot wait to get started!
