Fundraising Profits

Individual:

ALL individual fundraising profits go directly to your dancer's account!  Our fundraising committee offers many opportunities throughout the year.  Dances may take part in as many or as few as they would like!  

How fundraising profits are credited to dancer:

               

First: All fundraising profits are taken off dancer's competition fees starting with the last month.  While we offer a monthly payment plan for competition fees, SDC pays competition fees in full at the beginning of the season.  Applying fundraising to competition fees first helps  SDC to cover comp cost immediately. 

Ex.  Dancer owes $100 a month Sept - June for competition fees.  Dancer makes $25 in their first fundraiser.  The $25 would come off of June comp fees, bringing the cost down to $75 for June. 

 

Second: After all comp fees are covered, dancer may apply fundraising to their choice (tuition, costume deposits, costume balances)

Team:

SDC holds team fundraisers such as car wash, Mom-to-Mom sale, etc.  These are fun, team bonding events that help with some of the extras for team events and costs.  

Team Fundraising Profits help with: 

 

Events:  Prizes for Dance-a-thon, paper products for Dance-a-thon, Spirit week items, extra rehearsal snacks, prop trailer storage, prop trailer maintenance, etc. 

 

Sibling:

Families with multiple dancers at SDC will receive a 7% discount on tuition for each dancer.

Paid in Full:

Families will receive a 5% discount off tuition if paid in full with check before the start of the season.
