How do I register for class?

Registration is online through our website. Click “Register Online Today” and follow the prompts. The annual registration fee is $28 for one student or $40 for a family. The registration fee automatically renews one year from your enrollment date.

Do you offer trial classes to new students?

Yes, a new student can try any class on our schedule by paying a drop in fee of $18 per class. You are allowed one drop in per style of dance, i.e. one ballet class, one tap/jazz class, one hip-hop class etc. Should you choose to enroll in one of the classes you dropped into, your fee for that class can be credited towards your tuition. Please register online prior to attending your drop in class and complete the online waivers.

I want to participate in the performance, what options do I have to configure the best classes to meet my interests?

Summer Schedule for 2018

Our Summer schedule for 2018 is now available and open for registration. Summer Term begins June 4th and runs through July 28th. Our Summer program offers flexible scheduling to accommodate for a more relaxed class schedule. Flexible scheduling allows you to select the total number of classes your dancer would like attend regardless of discipline for the duration of Summer. For example, if you register for 2 classes per week, that equates to a total of 16 classes that you may allocate at your discretion through the Summer Term. You are not limited to a total number of classes per week, rather only a total number of classes for the entire duration of the term. Should you exceed your total allotted classes, drop in rates will apply.
