Enrollment in the school is on a semester basis only.

A vital part of a student's dance training is stage experience. A year-end student performance will be presented at the Scott Theater at 2:00 and 6:30 pm on Saturday, May 4. Costume fee of $90 - $100 for the Spring performance will be due by November 13 and a performance fee of $95 will be due on March 18. Students in jazz classes will be charged an additional costume fee. Dancers in additional roles or ballets will also have an additional costume fee. Additional charges may be added for costumes that need additional work or are more costly. Additional rehearsals will be held on Saturdays beginning three Saturdays before the performance as well as a staging and dress rehearsal at the theater just prior to the performance day. There will be a Saturday prior to the performance for photos in costume at the studio. Selected students may also be invited to perform in Ballet Concerto performances at various times during the year.
PRE-SCHOOL BALLET CLASSES
Pre-school ballet classes are offered for children beginning at three years of age. Movement and musical activities are informally a part of a child's environment from birth. Research done in recent years substantiates the view of many dance and music educators that early rhythmic and melodic activities can affect a child's understanding and coordination in later years. In the pre-school classes, the children learn to move to different rhythms. They also learn some basic ballet exercises and terminology such as demi-plié, tendu and port de bras. They learn to follow directions and to love ballet.
ATTENDANCE: Students are expected to attend all the classes in which they are registered. Missed classes may be made up within the semester in another class of comparable level. Students must be on time to class. Tardiness disrupts classes and prevents the student from properly warming up.
OBSERVATION OF CLASSES: Parents or guests are not permitted in the classroom while class is in session. However, during the last week of classes before Christmas break, parents and other guests will be invited to observe class.
REPEATING LEVELS OF STUDY: Ballet classes do not progress at the same pace as traditional academic grades. It is common for students to repeat levels of study. Two or more years may be required before a student is ready for advancement to the next level. Parents and students ages 7 & up should not anticipate automatic annual level advancements.
