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 you or your child received at the end of the semester. If she is 3-4 years old, continue with Creative Movement. 5 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 up.
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 planned school closure dates for 2016–2017?
Labor Day: September 5
Thanksgiving Break: November 21–26
Winter Break: December 19–31
Spring Break: March 27–April 1
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 application form can be found at the top of this page.
What is the date of this year’s school recital?
Our Gala end-of-year show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 27 & 28. Please make sure your child(ren) can take part. This show is great fun for the entire Boulder Ballet community.
Why was the charge on my credit card $35 more than the cost that was listed for tuition?
There is an annual registration fee of $35 per family per year. There is no registration fee for families new to Boulder Ballet for the Summer Program.
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 her level?
You should register only for the class described as “LEVEL 3A ALL CLASSES,” “LEVEL 7 ALL CLASSES,” etc. Select only that option and you will automatically be signed up for all classes offered at a given level; this is the only way to receive the discounted rate.
If my daughter wants to take pre-pointe or pointe, how many technique classes does she 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.
