Lovingly Used Leotard Sale
The Socially-Distanced Lovingly Used Leotard and BB Merchandise Sale will take place on Saturday, October 10, 2020. We will be located just outside the west doors of the Dairy (next to parking lot) from 1:30–3:30 pm. New merchandise is limited to current stock. We will be accepting donations of CLEAN, gently used dancewear or ballet slippers (no pointe shoes) for resale. Items should be in a sealed plastic bag and can be left with any instructor by your dancer. Checks are preferred for payment, but credit cards will be accepted.
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 24–January 16, 2021 (Note, there are two weeks of classes after winter break that are part of fall session)
What are the planned school closure dates for 2020–2021?
Winter Break: December 21–January 3, 2021. Spring Break: March 22–27, 2021
What are the dates for Spring session?
January 18–May 29, 2021
What's the Summer Intensive schedule?
Dates are July 12–31, 2021. Full schedule will be available in March.
When are the dates of the Master Classes?
August 9-14, 2021
Do you close when Boulder Valley School District is scheduled for planned days off?
Boulder Ballet does not close except for breaks as shown above.
How can I find out whether regular classes and open classes will be canceled 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 a 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 scholarships?
Boulder Ballet has implemented a Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) for existing students who need temporary assistance due to unforeseen financial circumstances. Tuition assistance is based on a student’s financial need and aptitude for dance. Our ability to award assistance is dependent on funds available. Applications are due August 2, 2021for the fall semester and December 13, 2021 for the spring semester. More information and the 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 29 & 30. Please plan ahead so your child(ren) can take part. Your child must be registered for the spring session to participate in the performance. There is no 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 student in a family and $20 per year for each additional member of the family. There is no registration fee 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 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 at least 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. Refund requests must be made in writing. Registration fees are non-refundable. Refunds will not be given if classes move to all virtual due to COVID-19 safety mandates. There are no refunds given for the summer session. To change or drop a class, please notify Beth in the school office.
