Enrollment is ongoing for ages 3 and up | Summer Intensive: June 1-24, 2021
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 schedule and will be with other students of similar dance training. Following a placement class, our staff or volunteers will inform you of which class level the placement instructor suggests you register for.
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.
In response to the City of Gilbert’s emergency order declared on June 19th, all dancers (with the exception of students under 6 years of age) and all adults will be required to wear a mask at BE School of Dance beginning Monday, June 22. We thank you for your support to keep BE School of Dance open with in-studio classes during this unprecedented time as we follow the regulations set forth by the City of Gilbert and the Centers for Disease Control.
Class registration is 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.
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. A fee of $25.00 will be charged for any returned check. NO REFUNDS OR DEDUCTIONS for missed classes; you may schedule a make‐up class at the front desk within 30 days of missed class. Please see a member of our staff for pricing on Adult Classes.

* All classes are subject to change and are subject to a minimum size requirement.
* No parents or visitors are allowed in the classroom during instruction without invitation.
* If student arrives 15 minutes afer start of class, it is up to the discretion of the teacher if the student will be able to participate or will be asked to sit and watch class, due to lack of warmed muscles to prevent injury to the student.
* Students are expected to treat the staff and facility with respect.
* Please help keep our studio clean.
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.
