Class sizes are limited. Advance registration ensures enrollment. Tuition and fees for the first month are due at the time of registration. Payments may be made with a check, cash, or credit card. Class fees and tuition are non-refundable.

Schedule, instructors, and prices are subject to change.

All students must complete and submit the registration form and release forms before classes begin. Students will not be allowed to attend class without having completed paperwork and tuition payments.

Placement into all classes, as well as participation in the performances is subject to instructor approval in support of the class curriculum.

Only dance students are allowed beyond the front desk. Parents are asked to wait in the lobby. All classes are closed for viewing so that teachers and students can retain their focus without distraction. But remember, our studios feature windows so that the parents can observe class while sitting in the waiting lobby. Also, Parent Observation Days will occur throughout the year where the classes will be open for the parents to come in and see the dancers’ progress.

If a parent needs to speak with the office administrator or with the faculty, an appointment time will be set up through the office staff at the front desk.

Attendance at all classes is expected. If the student is unable to attend, the parent or student must call ABS at 558-0800 or email americasballet@gmail.com prior to their class time. Students may make-up missed classes in an equal or lower level in the same month as the missed class.

Make-up classes: Students may make-up missed classes in an equal or lower level in the same month as the missed class. Students arriving 15 minutes late for class must observe class only.

What makes America’s Ballet School the place “where serious dancers go to learn ballet”? 2017-05-09T18:36:48+00:00

blog_5

We offer a quality program of pre-ballet, ballet and pre-professional ballet classes set in a wholesome environment where positive attitudes are encouraged. In addition to our curriculum, we believe that the values learned in the formative years will carry over into other areas of the students’ lives and help propel them to success. Our programs are second-to-none – we have a well-planned, well-written syllabus with master instructors who prove invaluable in making the children feel special and in knowing what works and what doesn’t.
