June Fees - Due June 1st

The initial tuition plan covered classes up to May 17 (total of 30 classes).  A June fee is due for all students regardless of the payment plan selected upon registration. This payment covers the remaining weeks of rehearsals, the additional staff needed and the expenses incurred for the use of the theatre for dress rehearsal. 


Your June fee will be posted to your online account.  Your fee is one month’s tuition, (if a student was enrolled in Tues. Adv. Ballet, Tues. Int. Ballet Pre-Pointe or RAD that payment obligation has been fulfilled, and those hours should not be counted in the June fee). 


  • Schedule Changes: Beginning May 20, a new schedule will take place. This schedule was emailed and passed out to students in April.  You can also find the schedule on our website under calendar. These changes will take the place of the students’ normal class day and time that they usually attend.   We realize a conflict may arise with the new schedule, but please make your best effort to have your child attend weekly. 
  • In order to use a facility space comparable to our stage, rehearsals will be scheduled at Salem United Methodist Church (next door to the studio) after Memorial Day. Please use the Salem parking lot for additional parking and take caution as you enter and exit the lots.  


Summer Dance Camps/Classes

Enroll for summer classes by May 17th and your name will be put into a drawing to win a raffle.  The winning prize includes a wine basket AND 2 tickets to Baltimore Center Stage for any performance during the 19-20 mainstage season!  Now that is an offer you can't refuse! Information on our summer camps/classes can be found on our website. Flyers are also available at the studio.  Summer Registration deadline is June 12.
