How do I sign up for a class?
How do I know what level class to sign up my dancer for?
For other classes, we recommend that dancers trial a class that seems like the correct age/level class, and the instructor can evaluate the student in class to ensure he/she is in the correct class. If not, the teacher will recommend which alternate class is most appropriate for that student.
What is the appropriate attire for the various genre classes?
Where can I buy dance shoes and attire?
What discounts do you offer?
What additional fees am I responsible for besides the monthly tuition (recreational dancers)?
Dancers pay a $50 registration fee ($10 for each additional sibling) in the fall, a recital costume fee of $65-$75 per dancer (per class participating in recital) due mid November, and a recital performance fee (venue rental, tickets, etc) of $50 (or $80 per family) due mid February. We also have an optional winter show that is $100 per dancer or $175 per family and includes the costume, venue, extra rehearsals, and tickets.

For what ages do you offer classes at the studio?
What if I don’t see a class that works for my schedule?
Balance will consider adding an additional class to the schedule, if space allows, if you can bring 5 or more dancers who want to take that class. Otherwise, you can add a wish list class on our Class Request Form or at the front desk so that, with enough requests for the same class/time, we can potentially add the class.
When and where are the performance opportunities and who performs in these shows?
Please refer to the Master Balance Calendar for specific dates.
