A $20 trial class may be taken, however, only fully registered (tuition paid) students can be guaranteed a space in class. If there is space available, students may take classes as “drop ins” at the drop in rate of $20 per class.

Total for tuition and uniform package is $410 (Sunday class) or $372 (Tuesday class).
    Your dancer will be fitted for ballet slippers within the first couple of classes.
  • Uniforms add a sense of commitment and appreciation of your dancer to the class and she will feel confidant when she looks the part and can dance comfortably as the other dancers in the class are!
  • Siblings are eligible for a discount.

ATTENDANCE/ILLNESS:

  • All absences must be reported as soon as they become known. There will be no refunds for “no-shows.”
  • If a dancer does miss a class, she can attend another class AT ANOTHER TIME (not the regular class she is already registered for) to make up for it. 

TARDINESS/PICK-UP:

  • Classes begin on time. Dancers should arrive 5-10 minutes before class. It is for the student’s benefit to arrive on time in order for them to gain the most out of each lesson and to help avoid injury.

COMMUNICATION:

  • We utilize text and email as our main source of communication. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide a valid text number, email address, read the notices, and communicate back.

DRESS CODE:

  • Please avoid sending girls wearing jewelry.
  • All girls can wear uniform dance shirts as part of their uniforms.
  • We order our dancer’s uniforms to save you the time and hassle of a long drive and fitting at an dance boutique that charges boutique prices. We professionally fit our students for shoes right here in our studio and order from high quality vendors while aiming to keep our costs incredibly low. Students are required to take advantage of this amazing service!
