Passion and Performance has a NEW Membership Structure

Starting June 1, 2016 we have revamped our membership structure! Simple, straightforward, and member friendly!

Here is how it works:

Passion and Performance now has three types of class programming:

  • The Strength and Skills Program: The classes in this program do not perform. They are focused on helping build your mind and body. The classes are 6 week sessions.
  • The Recreational Program: The classes in this program do perform. In 6 weeks you will learn a routine that will go into one of our shows.  While only 6 weeks – students will usually receive a total of 8-10 hours of dance time with show practices.
  • The Competitive Program: The classes in this program do perform and are longer. These classes are an hour and fifteen minutes long. They run from September – June, and then have a summer intensive.  In the Competitive Program that are also additional rehearsals nearing show time. Additional costume fees apply to these classes.

The memberships are a monthly fee that you pay, rather than paying for your tuition all up front.  For your membership you simply pick the classes you want, combine the fees and then apply the discount! Each program has a different rate based on the type of programming it is.

  • The Strength and Skills Program classes: $55/month
  • The Recreational Program classes: $65/month
  • The Competitive Program classes:$75/ month

The discount:

  • Combine 2 classes save 20%
  • Combine 3 classes save 30%
  • Combine 4 classes save 40%
  • Combine 5 classes save 50%
  • Combine 6 or more classes and receive 50% off your entire tuition for the first 5 classes and then simply pay an additional $10 for every added class..

Please be advised that we require 30 days to terminate or postpone a membership.  All terminations or postponements with less than 30 days notice will be charged the monthly dues, with termination occurring for the following month. Check out our policies for more details.

    Roulette Membership Add On

    Every once in a while, we have a surprise space open up in our schedule,

    and we want to use these unique opportunities to bring our members something new!

    Each session, if a space becomes available in our timetable, we will offer a special “Roulette Class”. The style of the class will be revealed the week following Donation Days, and the class itself will begin the following week. The date, time and style of the class will change each session, and may be taught by one of our beloved P&P instructors or another dance professional in our community. It may be a dance class, it may be a fitness class or it may even be a style never before seen at the studio.

    You never know what a Roulette class will bring!

    Roulette Class Contracts can be added to any existing membership at a cost of $10/month, plus tax. Please note:

    • This is a membership add-on and cannot be used as a standalone membership contract.
    • Roulette Class Sessions commence on a rotational 5 week structure and will likely change time, style, instructor, level and class structure each session.
    • The $10/month fee is a discounted financing option, and members will not be refunded for instances in which Roulette Classes do not run or in which one chooses not to participate for any reason. Passion and Performance will work to provide compensatory options for cases in which Roulette Classes do not run for multiple consecutive sessions.
    • Roulette Class Contracts are subject to all terms, conditions and policies of the Passion and Performance Membership Program. If a members wishes to terminate or hold their Roulette Membership, 30 days written notice (on a calendar month) is required, making the termination or hold effective the following month. All fees paid are non-refundable.
