We accept enrollments for the school year starting June 15. We open enrollment to returning students first and reserve space for them. We stop accepting enrollment for the school year in November, however there are limited spaces available after August because most of our classes are full. As classes fill, a waiting list will be maintained to accommodate additional students as space becomes available.
The first month of tuition and registration fee are due the first day of classes.

Fall 2018 - Spring 2019 Registration
Students will be handed Fall Schedules in June with their placements for next school year. The highlighted classes are the classes available to that student to take. We put a lot of thought into our placements, if you have a question about these please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Students may not register for class levels they were not placed in, NO EXCEPTIONS. New Students should select classes based on their age - Creative Movement, Pre-Dance. If your student has prior dance training please email email@example.com.
We encourage all of our students enrolled in Ballet 2 - 5 to take two Ballet classes a week. This is imperative for their technical growth as an individual dancer and the class as a whole. We have noticed that students only enrolled in Ballet once a week do not progress at the same rate as the other dancers. This can prevent them from moving up levels in all their technique classes including Jazz, Lyrical, and Contemporary with their peers. We want your student to be successful and feel confident with their abilities so please keep this in mind when registering for classes.
Please check the SCHEDULE for the school year's available classes.
*Limited Availability: These classes are filling up so make sure to register ASAP!
*Waitlist: Please register for the class online in Danceworks, this will add you to the Waitlist. Students will be added to the class if/when enrolled students drop on a first come first serve basis.

Students receive placements for the following School Year in June. Placements are based on the students ability, drive, and the school population as a whole. Students may be moved around at the beginning of the school year based on level enrollment and the teacher. We put a lot of thought in where each student belongs because we want our students to not only be challenged, but also receive the proper attention and technical training. If students do not have a strong foundation it may be difficult for them to progress.
We require a credit card on file in order to register for fall classes. You will NOT be charged at registration, and your credit card will only run automatically for tuition payment if you select “use for recurring billing.” We suggest keeping that selected so you do not have to worry about your tuition payment month to month. You are always welcome to submit cash or check to the tuition box at the studio on the 1st of the month instead. If tuition payment is not received by the 5th of the month, you will be charged a non-refundable $25.00 Late Fee. Make sure you select the appropriate session (Fall/Spring 2018-19) for registration. You will receive an
automated confirmation email to confirm enrollment.
Class placement is determined by the instructors and is based on a student’s ability and certain age restrictions. My staff and I work very hard to ensure proper evaluation and placement so each dancer can receive the most out of their class. Please make every effort to enroll your dancer for the class most appropriate for them based on our placements.
As stated on our website and handouts, you must be registered for a Ballet class if you are taking a Jazz,
Lyrical, or Contemporary class. This requirement applies to all ages and levels. Ballet is the foundation for all forms of dance; it is a paramount dance discipline which will help to enrich your child’s dance experience.
If you decide to change or quit a dance class, you are obligated to notify the front desk of your decision. All class changes must be made by November. If no one is available, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly withdraw you from the class and inactivate your account. 2 weeks notice is required in order to avoid the next month’s tuition. Failure to do so will result in payment of tuition until notified of your withdrawal.
