    The following information is intended to answer some of the questions you may have about tuition, absences, attire and holidays.  Please note the important dates at the bottom of the page.  Should you need further assistance please call 803-469-8277 or email office@misslibbys.com

    September – May Session, 2018-19:  Tuition is payable in nine equal payments, and is due by the first of each month.  We do ask for a non-refundable annual registration fee of $40.00 for the first two siblings per family, and $10 for each additional sibling.  The annual registration fee should be paid upon enrollment to confirm your spot in class!

    We do not send monthly invoices/statements. You will receive a statement only if your account is past due. Any account that becomes 15 days past due will be notified by email or phone call.  In the event an account becomes 30  days past due, the past due balance will charged to the credit card provided upon enrollment.  If you would like to set up an automatic draft plan with a credit or debit card, please see the front desk personnel. For your convenience, you may prepay your annual tuition, plus fees, and receive one month’s tuition free!  We offer a 10% discount to all active duty military families.


    Dance recitals are held in May at Patriot Hall.  Not your “same ol’ dance recital” this year!  5 dance recitals  with a theme that will entertain your family & friends!  New sets & scenery create a wonderland of imagination!  All 45 minute dance classes will perform one routine & be included in the finale dance number.  Recital tickets will be available the first week of May.   All accounts must be current to receive tickets.  Tickets can be purchased from the front office or at the box office of Patriot Hall 1hour prior to Showtime.



    The date of the Gymnastics Expo  is usually the last weekend of May or the 1st weekend of June.  The Gymnastics Expo will take place at Nettles Gymnasium of USC Sumter.  We love to have your gymnasts show off the skills they have worked hard to achieve!  Miss Libby’s gymnastics center is transported to an alternate location with ample seating and plenty of space to include all the gymnastics elements!



    The annual performance cost ($30.00 per student) helps offset the expenses associated with putting on multiple performances each year.  The annual performance fee will be due January 1st, 2019. Tuition payments pay for instruction costs so the performance cost assists with renting venues, decorations, and other production costs. 


    It’s important for students abide by a dress code policy for the following reasons:

    • A neat and tidy appearance sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for students and the teacher.
    • Teachers must be able to see the students body outline clearly in order to make proper corrections on posture, alignment, etc. 
    • Hair must be properly secured and tied up off of the face and neck for all styles of dance and gymnastics.
    • Jewelry must not be loose or dangling. 
    • Gum chewing is not allowed due to danger of choking and appearance.
    • No loose fitting pants, blue jeans or t-shirts.
    • Miss Libby’s carries a full line of dance shoes, gymnastics & dance leotards.


    Payment for dance recital costumes & gymnastics expo outfits  are due on or before November 1st.  We order costumes & attire during the holiday break.  Costume companies can take up to 16-18 weeks to ship orders.Girls’ Dance Costumes………………$70.00
    Boys’ Dance Costumes………………$50.00
    Girls’ Gymnastics Leo………………..$60.00

    Dance pictures are scheduled for April. Gymnastics pictures are scheduled for March.  Pictures will be taken during regular class time. Dance students attending through daycare centers will have pictures taken on Saturday at Miss Libby’s.  Dance & Gymnastics pictures are taken by Limelite Photography-Brent King. 

    Each student will receive one dance recital and/or gymnastics exhibition participation trophy for the year. Please contact the front desk if it is your 5th, 10th, or 15th year of dance or gymnastics. Trophies will be awarded for these accomplishments.  We honor the previous years attended at other studios.  Perfect Attendance Certificates will be awarded for those students achieving 100% perfect attendance. Please understand that we cannot make exceptions.

    Attendance is imperative! Absences and tardiness can have a negative effect on the entire class.  Classes missed for sickness, personal vacation, etc. may be made up in an age appropriate class within 30 days of the absence. It is the responsibility of the parent to notify the front desk 24 hours prior to a makeup class.  Advance notice is required to allow our staff to find the correct make-up class for your student.   Make-up classes will not be allowed after April 1st, 2018.

    We do not make up or pro-rate tuition for days missed due to inclement weather. We will follow closing decisions determined by the Sumter School District.
