Registration for Summer 2020 opens Monday, March 9.
Fees are payable by:
- cheque (preferred),

* Please see the Schedule page to find course times and days. Some courses are listed as FULL or 1 spot remaining; please call us to confirm as class numbers do fluctuate and may not be instantly updated on this site. We keep a Wait List for all full courses and students can often join within one week of going on a list.
We are happy to help you select courses and programs.
The Audition for Closed Courses and Programs including the Performance Training Company; the Professional Training Division including the Half Day Training Options; and Royal Academy of Dance Ballet programs is in April of each year.
If you missed the audition, but wish to enrol in Closed Courses and/or Programs please contact us by phone or email.
Private/Semiprivate Instruction in any discipline is available schedule permitting.
Adult Courses run year-round in 6 to 12 week sessions (some drop-ins available).
Note: Families who compete registration by Monday, June 17, 2019 at 7:00pm can have the Annual Membership Fee for that returning student waived. For returning students with programs with tuition above $2000, a minimum payment of $2000.00 per returning student (from which Summer instruction and/or Regular Tuition costs can also be taken), can also have the Annual Membership Fee waived. Any credit remaining from early registration payments will be applied to subsequent fees and charges.
Note: Changes to registration after June 17 will be subject to regular Change/Drop Fees and/or the annual membership fee being applied.
The First Day of Regular classes for the 2019-2020 year is Saturday, September 7, 2019.
Our preferred method of payment is cheque but we also accept cash (in person only – please request receipt) and e-transfer.
For all students enrolling in September to June courses, the non-refundable Annual Membership Fee* of $35.00 per student or $60 per family, helps offset the administrative costs for your enrolment and year ahead.
* Returning students who fully register for the following year’s courses by the end of the last week of classes/Early Registration week, will have their Annual Membership Fee waived (i.e. a full Registration for one child in a family in which two are registering will result in the family paying a $35.00 Annual Membership Fee instead of $60.00). However, if there are any later changes to the Early Registration, the Annual Membership Fee for that student will apply. For returning students with Tuition of $2000.00 and above: a $2000.00 minimum Registration Deposit paid by the end of the last week of classes/Early Registration week will waive the upcoming year’s Annual Membership Fee for that student. However, should the student for whom a Registration Deposit is paid not then enroll in courses whose total regular group courses Tuition (not including any other fees) exceeds $2000.00, the Annual Membership Fee for that student will be applied. A minimum of $200.00 will be withheld from any refund on a Registration Deposit.
We have produced a Guidebook for every family. This one time purchase is $6.00 and gives our School Rules, and answers (we hope!) all your questions on hair and attire for classes, stage make-up, the criteria for scholarships, and so much more. Please bring the Guidebook back to us when you register each year and we will update you (no charge).
At registration, every family signs a Student/Parent & School Agreement and Waiver via our online Parent Portal which gives most of our important dates for the upcoming September to June year so you have them at the time of committing to any program. Each Fall we add the Important Dates sheet to your Guidebook informing you of more specific times for events such as rehearsals given in the Agreement. And the Important Dates are allows updated with all details at the Important Dates page on this website.
Tuition is based on the full September to June year, NOT by the individual class or by the month. Students are required to make a full year’s commitment as all programs are progressive.
If you wish, you may give three payments dated September 1, December 1, and April 1 of next year. A $6 cheque processing fee will apply.
If you wish, you may make nine payments dated the 1st of each month, September to May. A $18 cheque processing fee will apply.
We require a minimum Costume Deposit of $70 for each performing course. If your costume costs less, you are credited (most people apply credits to purchasing tickets for the yearend show), if it costs more we apply the remainder to your account. Sometimes we have a fortunate exception, but it is almost impossible to costume a group of dancers for less than $80 per performer. You are welcome to put down a larger deposit if you wish.
Absences may lead to exclusion from performing. When a student is excluded from performing, everyone in his or her piece and the instructor are adversely affected. A $75 Rehearsal Deposit will be required at registration for every performing student. This deposit will be returned after the yearend shows if no extra rehearsal time was required due to you/r child’s lack of attendance. If you/r child’s lack of attendance necessitates extra time to a cost exceeding $75, you will be responsible for the cost.
Please call anytime. We check messages regularly and are happy to help you!
