At TADA tuition is an annual fee, based on 32 weeks of class. For the convenience of our families we collect this in 9 equal payments, payable on the first of every month August - April. Your commitment to Tupelo Academy of Dance Arts includes keeping your account balances current. All classes must be paid for in advance.
Tuition is paid by monthly credit/debit card draft on the 1st of each month. The credit card information you entered when you registered will be used to pay your tuition and fees at Tupelo Academy of Dance Arts. After your account is approved, registration and tuition fees will be charged. All recurring tuition fees are drafted on the 1st of every month. You may change your card at anytime by logging into the customer portal or at the TADA Office.
A $15 late fee will be applied on the 10th of each month if tuition & fees are not paid in full.

Class attendance is essential and determines the success of a dancer's progress, sense of accomplishment, technical development and confidence. Absences become critical leading up to the recital, not only for the student but also for fellow dancers. Please partner with us at Tupelo Academy of Dance Arts by remaining committed throughout the full nine month school year. If your child will be absent for any reason, please notify the studio by phone or email.
You may withdraw from classes at anytime at Tupelo Academy of dance Arts. Drop requests must be submitted in WRITING and must be received by the TADA office before the 1st of the month. If we do not receive the written request, tuition will continue to be billed. After October 16th a $150 late withdrawal fee will be applied.
Tupelo Academy of Dance Arts will follow the Tupelo Public School District's inclement weather policy. If TPSD is closed TADA is closed. If conditions improve during the day we may open. Please check the website, Facebook, Instagram, for the most up to date information.
