FDS's curriculum is created on the principle that dance education can influence a student's physical, mental, and emotional health through the creative performance of self-expression combined with the rigor of dance techniques. Our concept-based program offers a well-rounded, developmentally sound approach to teaching the art and joy of moving.

Tuition and Fees
Tuition is calculated annually based on the cost of the program and the number of days in the entire school year.
Tuition is divided into 11 equal payments (Mid-August to Mid-June) for your convenience, regardless of the number of weeks in a month, missed lessons, school closings, or school vacations.
Tuition is due by the 1st of each month and considered past due after the 10th.
FDS runs on a calendar month, which means that the tuition remains the same whether there are 3, 4, or 5 classes in that month.
