- As ITP and PPT fees are already discounted they are not eligible for the Family/Multiple Class Discounts, which apply only to the General School.
We are so thankful they are part of this wonderful dance school, and their continual growth and love of dance ‘seals the deal’ for us in so many ways. – Tina Oates-Johnson, Mother of Maggie & Mollie
