Your Financial Options are as follows:
- October 1st to May 1st inclusive
Full or Partial Year Payment

- January to May
The first week of each month – October to May
Costume Deposits are due the end of November at $60.00 per Class. DSSD costume orders commence in December. DSSD is required to pay in full at time of ordering so Costume Deposits are required prior to ordering.
Please Note: This is a Costume Deposit only and once expenses are calculated to include Exchange, Duty, GST, Shipping, etc. the difference is collected when the costumes are distributed. This usually happens about one week prior to each event.
Students that withdraw from classes after costumes have been ordered, are responsible for the full cost of the costume. You will be provided with the costume.
