*Free SAJE T-shirt with registration.


**If a student registers for more than one group, the cost is  flat rate of $100 for each additional group.

Please note:

The financial obligation is the full tuition for the session, regardless of payment option. This means that if you have signed up for the school year, you are committing to pay for the entire session regardless of if the student chooses not to continue.


Each SAJE group is dependent upon the interaction between all members and upon the development, growth and progress of each individual student. Therefore, Attendance at all regularly scheduled rehearsals is required to maintain membership in good standing.


Excessive absence of any student is seriously detrimental to the group’s development and performance.
