How to Register: Classes for Children
August is Registration Month
All dancers complete two steps each August to register for the academic year:
1. Complete the online registration form with contact information and any medical concerns. The online registration link will be emailed on August 1 and remain open through August 31.
2. Mail your tuition payment.
Students new to the Academy of Ballet may contact us at any time of the year to ask questions or be placed on a wait list. This automatically places you on our contact list to receive information. This also secures your space in class, without obligation. Some classes fill quickly, especially the Beginning Class for ages 6 and 7.
**Please note: We accept students at age 6 and older.
We contact our dancers and families primarily through email. Notices are created through Constant Contact. Please enable your server to accept our address: balletdubuque.com.

Tuition covers all classes in the academic year (September-early May). Tuition includes state tax. Rehearsals are not conducted during class time.
The Academy of Ballet enrollment is limited to 110 students.
Current students are automatically reserved class placement until the registration deadline of August 31. Registration is processed upon completion of the online registration form and receipt of tuition payment.
Transfer students may enroll mid-year, if space allows. Transfer students must learn and adhere to our rules and regulations regarding uniform and conduct.
Transfer students may be required to take a 'placement class' to determine level of training. This is simply attending a class in session, and allowing the instructor to assess previous training. Please contact us to schedule a placement class.
If you are considering enrollment at the Academy of Ballet, you are welcome to attend our All Class Presentation on May 9 from 10:00-Noon at the Grand Opera House. This free event provides an excellent view of our students and their progression. After the presentation, Marina or Megan will gladly take you on a tour of the Academy of Ballet, located on the 3rd and 4th floors of the Grand Opera House Building.
