October 2019 Update

Karina's Crew
[fblike]Welcome Fall! It’s been a great start to the dance year. We will keep families updated with monthly updates here on our website. If you have any questions, you can always Contact Us, call or send an email.


Monthly tuition is added to your accounts the last week of the month. It is due by the 7th of each month. You can pay with cash or check in the office or with a credit card online (and in the office too). October tuition is on your account now. This is a good time to make sure any adds or drops are on your account. The tuition schedule can be found here.

Automatic Billing

At registration you would have been asked if you wanted Automatic Billing of tuition to your credit card. If you are returning and this was active last May and your credit hasn’t changed, it will carry over. If you are new, you would have had to select it during registration, it is not automatic. You can check to make sure it is On or Off by logging into your account here. Automatic Billing is for Tuition Only. However, if your card is on file, you can call the office and authorize other charges to be paid such as costumes. PLEASE NOTE: You will receive an email receipt every time something is charged to your credit card.


It’s early to being thinking about Recital Costumes, however in order to make sure we get costumes in on time, we will be ordering them soon. Costume charges will be going onto your account shortly. Creative Movement costumes are $58 and all other classes are $69. This costume will be worn during the Annual Recital in June. Recreational Dancers will need 1 costume per class. Costumes are NOT automatically paid with your credit card on file. Costume payments are due by October 12.

There is still time to register!

Karina’s Crew

Thank you to everyone that supported Karina’s Crew in the UMASS Cancer Walk on September 22. Karina is a GDA Dancer and a cancer survivor having been diagnosed with Medulloblastoma stage 4 when she was 6. We also walked in memory of Sophia, another GDA dancer who is the inspiration for the Scholarship given to a senior dancer at our recital.



Big shout out to GDA Alum and new Boston Celtics Dance Team Captain, Miss Mazie! Very excited for her and lucky to have had her in over the summer to work with our competitive dancers! Congratulations Mazie!
