Spring Session (March 16th – June 15th for Dance With Me, Spring, 2021.) Space is limited. The Saturday 9:15 AM Pre-Primary Class is FULL (updated 3/9/21).

NEW! Pre-Primary class starting on Sundays (10:45-11:30 AM) in June (6/5-6/26).

Pre-Primary classes (ages 3.5-5) Once your dancer is comfortable dancing on their own, we encourage them to transition to our Pre-Primary classes. Pre-Primary classes are 45-minutes long, designed for children who are ready to dance independently in a more structured learning environment. Dancers 4 years-old and above who have already taken a full year of Dance With Me must register for a Pre-Primary class.

Pre-Primary classes are offered in 10- and 12-week sessions. Fall and Winter sessions are 10 weeks each; the Spring session is 12 weeks. Please note: the Monday Spring Session Pre-Primary class will run 3/15 to 6/21 in 2021. Are you looking to for a remote Pre-Primary class option in 2021/2022?

              PLEASE READ THE BELOW BEFORE REGISTERING:

              By filling out this registration form, you are registering for the entire class as listed on this page. The division of fees into multiple payments (installments) is allowed for convenience with an additional $15 fee assessed per installment. If you withdraw for any reason, it is your responsibility to contact the Office Manager immediately at 609-514-1600. You are required to give 30 days’ notice of dropping a class. A drop fee of $25 will be charged. NO REFUNDS OF TUITION PAID FOR ANY REASON. UNUSED FEES WILL BE KEPT INDEFINITELY FOR CREDIT.

              We offer a 2, 4, & 8 installment payment plan. Installment plans carry a $15 fee per enrolled class, per installment. For multiple-class enrollment, installment fees cap at $30.

              Please note that our policy does not guarantee make-up classes.

              Make-ups may be arranged for Dance With Me, Pre-Primary, and Adult/Teen Ballet classes at the discretion of the instructor if space is available in a comparable class.

              Dancers in Levels 1 through Level 3 may take a make-up class on an alternate day from their usual schedule at the discretion of the instructor. CP, Level 4, and Level 5 students may make up classes in a level below their own if cleared by the instructor and arranged through the office.

              Primary A, B, and C students may be allowed one make-up class per semester IF there is space in a comparable class. All make-ups must be scheduled through the office. If make-up classes are misused and/or if parents bring students to make-up classes without advance scheduling, we reserve the right to amend our policies to disallow make-ups.

              Those registering after the start of classes will be charged based on a prorate of the 32-week session. Any class with a registration of seven students or less may be cancelled at the discretion of the Director.

              BALLET PLACEMENT CLASSES:

              Please note that new ballet students Level 1 and above must schedule a placement class. Dancers in Dance With Me, Pre-Primary, and Primary levels MUST be of specified age by September 30th. Only an instructor can finalize level placement.

              TRIAL CLASSES:

              Prospective students may take a risk-free trial class. No fee will be charged if the student decides not to register. If the student registers for the class, the cost of the trial class will be included in the overall tuition. For classes with a “drop-in” option (e.g. Adult/Teen Jazz and Adult Beginner Ballet), risk-free trials are only offered during the first week of a session. After that, students wishing to take a trial class must pay the drop-in fee.

              INITIAL PAYMENT

              Initial payment does not include the $45 non-refundable registration fee (assessed per year, per family). This fee will be added to your balance and is due with the first installment. The registration fee applies to school-year classes only. There is no registration fee assessed for Dance With Me or other classes offered in 10- and 12-week sessions.

              If paying by check, please make checks payable to: PDT Studio.
