How to Register: Classes for Children
August is Registration Month
Students are officially registered to the Academy of Ballet in August. However, you may contact us at any time of the year to be placed on a wait list. This automatically places you in our 'interested file' 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.
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.
Please note: We accept students at age 6 and older.
You may call or email at any time of year to ask questions and inquire about current tuition.
Registration includes completing an online form to supply pertinent information: name, address, phone, and any medical concerns. Classes begin the full week following Labor Day, in September. Your registration is complete when you have completed the form and mailed your tuition payment. Please "contact us" to have registration forms and tuition information emailed to you.
Tuition for Academic Year 2018-19 is as follows:
$425 - One one-hour class per week (Beginning levels) $750 - Two one-hour classes per week (Intermediate and Advanced Levels)
Company Classes are one-and-one-half hour classes: $875 for two classes per week; $1200 for three classes per week; $1500 for four classes per week.
All tuitions include state tax and are per academic year. 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, 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 Review on May 11, 2019, 10:00-Noon at the Grand Opera House. This free event will provide 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.
