My child danced at Boulder Ballet last year. In what level should I register her/him for fall?
If your child was in level 1A or higher last spring, the teacher’s recommendation for fall is on the evaluation your child received at the end of the semester. If he or she is 3-4 years old, continue with Creative Movement. Five-year-olds should take Pre-Ballet. For 6-year-olds, speak to their last instructor for advice if you are not certain whether your child is ready to move to 1A.
Does my child move up every semester?
Typically, students stay at a given level for one year, sometimes more when they reach the upper levels.
What are the dates for fall session?
August 19 – January 11 (Note, there is one more class after winter break that is part of fall session)
What are the planned school closure dates for Fall 2019–2020?
Labor Day: September 2 Thanksgiving Break: November 25–30 Winter Break: December 23–January 5
Do you close when Boulder Valley School District is scheduled for planned days off?
Boulder Ballet does not close except as shown above.
How can I find out whether regular classes and open classes will be cancelled in the case of inclement weather?
Please check the BVSD website first thing in the morning if you think there is a chance the school district might close. Boulder Ballet cancels classes only when BVSD publishes district-wide school closure first thing in the morning. In such instances, Boulder Ballet will post that information to our homepage as early as possible.
Do you offer tuition assistance?
Boulder Ballet has implemented a Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) to extend the artistry, passion, and sheer joy of dance to those children in the community who would otherwise not have the opportunity to obtain training and education in dance and for existing students who need temporary assistance due to unforeseen financial distress. Tuition assistance is based on a student’s financial need and aptitude for dance. Our ability to award assistance is dependent on funds being available. TAP information and an application form can be found at the top of this page.
What is the date of this year’s school spring recital?
Our end-of-year show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 23 & 24. Please plan ahead so your child(ren) can take part. This show is great fun for the entire Boulder Ballet community. Your child must be registered for the spring session to participate in the performance. There is not a recital at the end of the fall session.
Why was the charge on my credit card $40 more than the cost that was listed for tuition?
There is an annual family registration fee of $40 per year for the first family member and $20 per year for each additional member of the family. There is no registration fee for families for the Summer Program or for the Parent Tot class.
I will be registering my child for classes in level 3A or higher. How do I get the discount offered for taking all the classes offered for his/her level?
When you register your child in all classes offered in a level for 3A and above, our registration system will automatically calculate your discount. This also applies to the Boys Ballet and Teen classes.
If my child wants to take pre-pointe or pointe, how many technique classes do they need to take?
Dancers registering for a pre-pointe class are required to take one additional technique class. Dancers who are registering for pointe class are required to take two additional technique classes.
If a student discontinues instruction on or before the third class, a refund will be given for the remaining tuition. No refund will be issued after the third class, except under extraordinary circumstances as determined by the school. Registration fees are non-refundable. To change or drop a class, please notify Beth in the school office.
