Registration

Before you complete your registration form, make sure to check out the information below. If you still have questions, call the office at (708) 329-8773 or submit a contact form. Registration can be completed online (preferred) or in person by making an appointment with the Front Desk Team.

A Non-Refundable Registration Fee of $35 per student or $45 per family is charged once per year for all students, starting at the beginning of the Fall Semester. New registration for the Summer Session only is $10 per student or $15 per family and may be applied toward Fall registration. Adult classes and special events/workshops do not require a registration fee.

Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so early registration is always recommended.

When to Register: The best time to register for classes is at the beginning of a new semester or session. If space remains available after the beginning of the enrollment period, we do accept pro-rated registration.

Semesters/Calendar

Our classes are divided into school-year two semesters that each contain 18 weeks of classes (these are all active weeks of classes, not counting off weeks for holidays). Sessions are usually shorter than semesters and are used over the summer months and at some satellite campuses. 

Fall Semester: Late August through early January
Spring Semester: January through May
Summer Session: Typically the months of June and July
Valpo Campus Session: Typically 12 weeks

Why Semesters/Sessions? Our instructors teach dance concepts according to our comprehensive syllabus, with a cumulative focus in each weekly class. As a result of attending classes consistently throughout the enrollment period, students have the opportunity to learn, review and repeat concepts taught in classes in a manner that promotes longterm retention and the best possible return on your investment! Shorter enrollment periods are not typically sufficient for achieving the same benefits. 

What's Required: To allow for maximum student benefit, families are asked to commit to a full semester upon enrollment. For example, if you enroll in the Fall Semester, you'll be asked to commit to attending classes and paying your tuition for the duration of that semester. 

 

Tuition

How Does Tuition Work? Because our enrollment is based on semesters, tuition is also calculated per semester. Depending on what works best for your family, you can choose to:

  1. Pay tuition in full at the time of registration
  2. Pay tuition in (2) installments, once at the time of registration and once in the middle of the semester
  3. Pay tuition in (4) installments, once per month for the first four months of the semester (for example, in August, September, October and November for the Fall Semester)

For Pre-Professional Program Students Only: Required enrollment upon registration is for the full term (two semesters). Because of this, tuition for Pre-Professional Program students has four different billing options.

  1. Pay tuition in full at the time of registration
  2. Pay tuition per-semester: two payments, due with registration and on January 15th
  3. Payment Plan A: Tuition for the term is divided into four payments, due on 15th of the month in August, October, January and March
  4. Payment Plan B: Tuition for the term is divided into eight payments, due on the 15th of the month in August, September, October, November, January, February, March, and April

For Summer Classes Only: Length of enrollment is determined by the student at registration. At the time of registration, a minimum deposit must be paid ($25 for regular classes, $50 for Summer Workshop). All remaining tuition is due no later than June 15th.

For Valpo Campus Classes Only: Required enrollment upon registration is the full session (12 weeks). Depending on what works best for your family, you can choose to:

  1. Pay full session tuition at the time of registration
  2. Pay session tuition in (2) installments, once at the time of registration and once in the middle of the session
  3. Pay session tuition in (3) installments, about once per month for the 12 weeks of the session

How Can I Pay Tuition? You can pay tuition via cash, check or credit card (we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover). When you register, you will be asked if you'd like to "Self Pay" or set up "Auto" billing.

  • "Self Pay" means that you'll need to submit your payment for tuition by the due dates.
  • "Auto" means that we will bill your credit card automatically within 3-4 days of the due dates. 

Is Tuition Refundable? No, tuition is non-refundable and non-transferrable once paid.
