Enrollment is ongoing for ages 3 and up | Fall Classes Begin August 9
All level placements are at the discretion of the teaching staff at BE School of Dance and subject to the approval of the School Director. New students should schedule a placement class with a member of our front desk staff or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Placement classes are offered from our existing class schedule and will be with other students of similar ages and/or dance training. Following a placement class, our staff or volunteers will inform you of which class level the placement instructor suggests you register for.
If you have a question as to which class level would be best for your child, simply call or email us, or you can view our class descriptions here. Based on your child’s age and years of experience, our staff will make a recommendation to you for which placement class your child should attend.
You can register your dancer for a placement class via our online registration system. Simply complete the required cells, then arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the placement class.
As we do have a leotard dress code at our studio, we typically suggest new students wait to purchase any new leotards until after the placement class has been taken in case the instructor determines another class level is better suited for the student.
The placement class fee is $10 for tech or $15 for tech/pointe during the Fall and Spring semesters and is valid for first class only (additional classes may be tried at drop‐in rates). Please note that the placement class fee varies in the summer. Please contact us for rates.
Effective Monday, May 17, 2021, the Ballet Etudes board of directors has voted to make face masks optional within BE School of Dance.
You may click here to register your dancer in our online system. Please note that as each semester progresses, some classes may be closed to new enrollment due to capacity, but waitlists are available via the online system. Class registration may also be handled at our front desk on the first day of classes attended.
The annual registration fee is $25.00 per student; the annual fee covers the period of August through July for the dance studio.
We do have a leotard dress code at our studio so please be sure to review our leotard dress code for the appropriate leotard color. We typically suggest new students wait to purchase any new leotards until after the placement class has been taken in case the instructor determines another class level is better suited for the student.
Tuition is due on the 1st of each month payable via cash, check, or credit card (we do not utilize autopay). A late fee of $10.00 will be charged after the 15th.

While we understand that life and mistakes happen, it is very important that your child is picked up promptly from the dance school after class and rehearsal, especially if it is the last one of the day. It is very unsettling for one child to be left when all the other parents have picked up their children. If any Ballet Etudes volunteers or staff must stay with your child after class or rehearsal ends, there will be a $10.00 service fee after the first 10 minutes and a $5.00 fee for every 5 minutes after that, the fee will be assessed and billed to the parent’s account. Please call the studio to notify the office if you will be late due to an emergency.
