Registration is formally held twice a year, but new students are welcome at anytime!

  • Registration held during July/August is for our full academic year (Fall, Winter and Spring) with classes running from September through June. Once students sign up, they are considered registered for the year. All registration is done in person at the studio and we accept cash, check or credit cards. Feel free to print our registration form at home before stopping in!

  • Registration held during April/May is for our 6-Week Summer Workshop. Those students, Level IV through Company, not intending to stay for the 6-Week Summer Workshop must inform the studio, in written form, by January 15th and they must audition for new placement in the fall.

New Students!

Welcome and thank you for showing interest in our school! ​

  • New students ages 4-10 who are interested in our Creative Dance or Beginner Level classes may register for classes at any time. Depending on age and previous dance experience, a trial class may be recommended to insure your dancer is placed accordingly. Current pricing and schedules can be found on our Creative Dance and Beginner Ballet pages. 

  • New students ages 10+ (Level IV+) must audition for our school. Contact Us for audition inquires and scheduling. 

All new students must register with us in person. Please do not send registration forms and payments through the mail. 

Current Students!

Once a dancer is registered, they are considered registered for the full academic school year (Fall - Spring).
