First performing class is $50/month.

Second and third performing classes are $40 each per month. (e.g., First class is $50, second class is $40, third class is also $40, which brings 3 classes to a total of $130/month)

Technique & Pre-Pointe classes are $20/month if you are also signed up for a performing ballet class. $50 month if you are not taking a ballet class. These classes are extra and will not be performing in our winter and spring performances.
