Our Policies

Placement

Class placement is at the discretion of the director and is based on previous training and degree of seriousness and not necessarily by age. Placement auditions are held before the start of each school year by appointment. To make an appointment email us at theballetclass@gmail.com. There is a $25 audition fee. 

Tuition

Our annual tuition is paid in two installments (60% is due upon enrollment and the remaining 40% is due on December 1st). We accept credit card payments through our secure online system. Please email us at theballetclass@gmail.com for more information. We offer a sibling discount of 5% for families with multiple students. *Tuition is non-refundable.* 

Attire 

Girls must wear pink tights and pink ballet slippers with elastic sewn across the insteps. Hair must be secured neatly in a bun.  Jewelry is not permitted, aside from stud earrings, as jewelry can be a distraction to students.  Leotards must not be adorned with sequins, ruffles or skirts.

Ballet attire can be purchased at Beam & Barre in Cos Cob or online at www.discountdancesupply.com.  

Boys must wear white T-shirts, black tights, white socks and white ballet slippers for all levels.

Tardiness 

Students should arrive fifteen minutes before class to stretch and warm-up. Arriving after your class has started is disruptive to the teacher and the other students. Students who arrive late must stop by the office before entering the class. Dancers will be asked to sit and take notes if they are later than ten minutes.
