HOW DOES REGISTRATION WORK?
Use the online registration system to sign up for classes, make payments online, and more. Just click the 'Online Portal/Register' button in the menu above to create a profile and get started!
HOW DOES TUITION WORK?
Tuition is calculated by how many min/hours per week the student dances. For example: Susie takes Ballet Level 1 and Tap Level 1 every week, for a combine total of 1.25 hours per week. Susie's parents pay $66.00 per month.
Please note: Tuition will be withdrawn via auto payment the first of each month. There are no refunds or adjusted tuition for missed classes. Tuition per month is based off a four week month. A $15.00 late fee will be applied to tuition not paid within seven days if auto payment bounces.
WHAT ARE REGISTRATION FEES?
When enrolling, a $25.00 registration fee holds your spot for the desired class(es) and help cover the administrative, facility, and other ongoing costs at The Studio Centre.
WHERE DO I PARK?
After turning on Platt Ln, drive all the way back and it's the last building on the left. You have two parking options:
Parking along the road - Walk along the sidewalk on the east side of the building.
Parking behind the building - Walk along the pathway on the west side of the building. (Please use the 8 to 10 spots behind TSC.)
Please contact The Studio Centre either by our app, parent portal, or email if your dancer will be missing class. TSC staff appreciate it. firstname.lastname@example.org. Dancers who miss more than six weeks of dance in a session will be dropped from our roster.
WHAT IS THE MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY?
Dancers are granted 3 make up lessons per session. Dancers can make up the lesson in their class level or lower within two weeks after missed class. Please contact TSC in advance to see which class to make up your lesson via email, email@example.com.
Example: Billy was sick on Tuesday and missed his Ballet Level 3 class. The next week he wants to make up the class he missed. He went to his enrolled Tuesday class, and to the Thursday Ballet Level 3 class. To make up a class, contact TSC at least 24 hours before arriving to the make up class. Email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
CAN I SWITCH CLASSES MID SEASON?
Yes, If a dancer is wanting to drop a class mid-session, you will need to email email@example.com. A $15.00 administration fee will be applied to your account. There are no refunds or adjusted tuition for dropping mid month.
WHAT LEVEL IS MY KID?
TSC is a technical dance school requiring all dancers to enroll in at least one ballet class. We place our dancers in levels based on skill, not by age. Dancers will be placed in levels based on Mr. Tyler/TSC staff's discretion to set each student up for success. For example, if a student is in 8th grade but has never danced before they will be placed in Level 2. Please contact The Studio Centre before enrolling in a class level higher than prior session. Still not sure which class level you child should be placed in? Contact TSC via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Pre Ballet: Preschool/Kindergarten and potty trained. 3 - 5 years old. (Dancers who are 5 years old or younger, need to enroll in Pre Ballet before taking Ballet Level 1.)
-Level 1: Zero - two years of dance training. Or dancers 9 years and younger who do not have prior dance experience.
-Level 2: Three - five years of dance training. Or dancers 10 years or older and who do not have prior dance experience. Dancing 2 days a week is recommended.
-Level 3: Five - seven years of dance training. Dancing 2-3 days a week is recommended.
-Level 4: Seven - nine years of dance training. Dancing 2-4 days a week is required.
Level 5: Advanced dancers. Must be approved by Mr. Tyler to be in this level. Must dance at least 2 days a week.
HOW DOES THE MULTI-STUDENT DISCOUNT WORK?
Dancers that share the same parent will receive a 20% discount. Example: Macy's tuition is $100 per month. Her sister Alexus has a monthly tuition of $80 and her other
sister Sydney has a tuition of $50 per month.
Macy $100 * 0.8 = $80
Alexus $80 * 0.8 = $64
Sydney $50 * 0.8 = $40
This results in a total tuition of $184/month versus $230/month without a multi-student discount.

Please note, not all dancers will be granted a private lesson. Private lessons will be granted to students with the following criteria: work ethic, attitude, attendance, respect to others, passion for dance and or wanting to pursue a dance career. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your essay.
WHAT IS THE 'WEATHER CANCELLATION' POLICY?
The Studio Centre will cancel dance classes when Ann Arbor Public School's evening activities are cancelled. Please check your email for cancelled classes or on The Studio Centre's Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
The safety of everyone is most important. The Studio Centre is located just outside Ann Arbor City Lines, and the roads do not get plowed as quickly. If The Studio Centre is open and you feel unsafe driving, do not risk your life to come to dance. As always if your kid will be missing dance for any reason, please send a quick email or call to let TSC staff know your child will be missing dance. Your child can make up a lesson if classes are cancelled. (Refer to Make Up Class Policy)
WHAT IF WE FORGOT OUR DANCE ATTIRE?
Dancers who will arrive without appropriate dance attire will be asked to sit out of class. Just like any sport, it's mandatory to have all the pieces to a uniform.
WHAT IF WE ARE RUNNING LATE TO DANCE CLASS?
Dancers who arrive 15 mins late for dance class will be asked to sit out of class to reduce the risk of injury after missing warm up. Please try your best to arrive before the schedule dance class time. TSC staff starts and ends on time.
CAN MY DANCER LEAVE EARLY FROM CLASS?
Dancers will not be allowed to leave dance class early for other extra curricular activities.
