Our Classes

Since our founding in 1987, we have been dedicated to helping students develop self-discipline, dedication, positive self-esteem, and an appreciation for the art of dance.

Students who join The Children’s Ballet, including very young students, receive a classical ballet education, learning about classical music, composers, French ballet terminology, and how dance can tell a story without words. Some of our older students graduate to college and professional dance programs.

Our students start as young as three years old and many stay with us through high school. Most of our classes last one hour and there are multiple classes every day.

New This Season

$60 registration/costume fee will be required for each student enrolling in a class. This fee reserves your student’s spot, but is refundable until Christmas break when all costume fees will be due. Students with more than one costume in the spring performance may pay the balance throughout the fall semester ($60 per costume).

Tuition Payment

There is a $15 monthly tuition discount for additional students from the same family. The tuition discount for boys is 50% per month. Families wishing to pay tuition monthly will be required to sign up for automatic payments.

Save 10% (almost an entire month of tuition!) if you sign up to pay for the full year at the beginning of the season (to be charged in September when classes start). *Note that annual tuition payments are non-refundable and the monthly discount for siblings does not apply.

All tuition payments will be charged on the first business day of each month beginning in September. We will no longer be accepting tuition payments at the studio.
