Beginning on September 14, all classes will be offered via Zoom. If possible, we will also offer a hybrid of Zoom and in-person classes depending on Montgomery County’s Reopening Phase. We must follow Montgomery County’s Reopening Requirements in order to offer in-person classes. If and when Montgomery County moves into Phase 3, we will be permitted to offer in-person classes with a 4-student limit. Students wishing to participate in in-person classes will be scheduled to attend class at our Maplewood-Alta Vista Park Studio on a rotating basis (i.e. some students attend 1st and 3rd week of the month and the others attend 2nd and 4th week; students tune in via Zoom when not in studio). Specific schedules for class rotations would be sent for each class. For maximum safety of faculty and students, we will adhere to these General Operating Requirements if and when we can offer the hybrid classes. In-person class sizes would only increase beyond the 4-student limit if Montgomery County, via the CDC, determines that larger indoor gatherings are safe.
Students will not be permitted to attend in-person classes at Rock Creek Dance Academy if they show any symptoms of illness.

2020-2021 Child/Teen Trimester Tuition Rates
Classes at Rock Creek Dance Academy run on a school-year basis with a curriculum designed to progress appropriately over the course of the school year, culminating in a school-year end recital in June.
School-year tuition is divided into three trimesters: upon registration, by the first week of December, and by the first week of March. During the first trimester, we accept students as space allows on a pro-rated tuition basis. We do not accept new students after the first trimester ends (beginning of December).
Should a student not wish to continue for the full school year, h/she may withdraw at the end of the first trimester. The parent or guardian must notify Rock Creek Dance Academy of the withdrawal in writing before before second trimester tuition and costume fees are billed at the beginning of December.
An annual non-refundable registration fee of $35.00 per family will be collected at the time of registration. A late fee of $15 will be applied to any accounts 30 days overdue. Additional late fees may apply for any accounts more than 45 days overdue.
Classes not meeting minimum enrollment may be combined or canceled.
The December tuition payment will also include recital costume fees as appropriate:
- Regular Costume Fee: $60
- 2-in-1 Costume Fee: $85
- Rental Costume Fee: $25
Classes begin on Monday, September 14, 2020.
