Tuition and Policies
Registration begins in June and continues through April. Registration is first-come, first served. Many classes fill before September, so we recommend registering early to secure placement in class.

The student’s level placement is made at the discretion of the dance educator. Student placements are based on age and skill level, essential for creating an optimal learning environment.
Returning Students Our goal is to keep each class progressing together at a similar pace while paying attention to the slight mixed level that will naturally arise and change throughout the year. If it is determined by the teacher that a student has been enrolled in the wrong class the studio will contact the parent/guardian immediately. We try to make all placement changes as quickly as possible. Please email or contact the office if you are unsure of your child’s placement for the new dance season.
New Students: For dancers who come to us with experience at other studios or who have been absent from us for some time, we need to ask a few questions to familiarize ourselves with your skill level and capabilities. Once we have done so we will consult with faculty members for class recommendations. Once the initial placement is determined, the first class is then used as a trial. After the first class the teacher will make an assessment and advise if proper placement has been achieved or if a switch to another class is a better fit. We are committed to finding the absolute best class for each student so that we can ensure proper training and a safe and enjoyable learning environment.
