Frequently asked questions

What are my payment options?


At Sunshine Dance our preferred form of payment is by e-check, but families also have the ability to pay by credit card. You will register your preferred form of payment in your account and this payment method will be used on the first of each month to pay all tuition and fees due at that time. * all tuition and fees are non-refundable




Do you have a competitive Dance Team?


We do! Information about our award winning Sunshine Dance Company can be found on our Company Page.




What if my child wants to drop out of their class?


​While we never want to lose a student from a class, we realize that sometimes life happens and it may become difficult to continue with your dance commitment. Any consideration to drop a class must be discussed with the studio owner, Jared Titus. Enrollment in class is a 9 month commitment. If a final decision is made to drop the class, the parent must give a 30 day notice, in writing, of your intent to drop. You will be responsible for tuition fees for the full 30 days. * all tuition and fees are non-refundable.




What do you charge for tickets to recital?


Our Annual Spring Recital is FREE of charge and open to the public. In lieu of charging for tickets, each student pays a $30 recital fee to help cover the cost of auditorium rental. Families with multiple students will pay $30 for the first student and $10 each for additional students who are siblings within the same household.




How do I know which class is appropriate for my child?


Sunshine Dance offers 3 different degrees of dancer development (Pre-Core, Core and Company Level). Pre-Core Classes are for ages 2-6. These classes will have “Pre” or “Kinder” in their class title and are designed to give our youngest students a fun and educational experience while teaching them the basic core principles of dance. Core Classes are for ages 6-18 and are listed by grade level. In these classes students will learn and master the fundamentals of proper dance technique, style and performance. Company Classes are for ages 5-18. Placement in these classes are by audition only. Auditions are held each year in June and dancers are then placed into the appropriate class for their current skill set. For more information, please contact the studio.

What days will the studio be closed?


The studio will be closed on the following dates: Labor Day - September 7, 2020 Halloween - October 31, 2020 Thanksgiving Break - November 20-28 1, 2020 Winter Break - December 18, 2020-January 30, 2021 Spring Break - March 26-April 3, 2021 Memorial Day - May 31, 2021 Classes may be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. We follow the District 41 guidelines for weather closings. If school is cancelled, there will be NO classes that day. We have allotted for weather closings in our tuition fee schedule so there will be no make-up days due to weather.




What happens if there is a state mandated closing of your studio?


If there is a mandated rollback in reopening rules for our county or statewide and we would be required to reduce the number of students per classroom, we will go to an A/B Schedule for all classes. Students for each class would be split into either A or B group, with the A group coming to in person classes and the B group attending class live online at home by way of a live video feed from the studio. The next week, groups would switch with B group attending in person and A group attending class live online. Any required complete closing of our facility by the Governor's office in the state of Illinois, will result in our immediate transition to online learning for our weekly scheduled classes. These classes will be held over a private, live video feed from our studios. NOT Zoom. Your class schedule will remain the same, meeting on the same day, time and duration as originally agreed upon. Please note that due to the age of the students, 2Tu Dance and Fairytale Dance classes will NOT be held over live video feed. Families with students in 2Tu Dance or Fairytale Dance classes will not be charged tuition for any classes missed during a mandated closing of our facility.
