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 $65.00 per month.
Please note: Tuition statements will be sent the first of each month and will be due within seven days. There are no refunds or adjusted tuition for missed classes. A $15.00 late fee will be applied to tuition not paid within seven days.
Please contact The Studio Centre either by phone, email or on your parent portal if your dancer will be missing class. TSC staff appreciate it. firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT IS THE MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY?
Dancers are granted 3 make up lessons per season. 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, however a $15.00 administration fee will be applied for switching classes from one day to another, dropping, or adding a class mid season. Please fill out our Switch/Drop Class Form.
WHAT LEVEL IS MY KID?
(Levels are based on skill not by age.)
Level 1: Zero - two years of dance training.
Level 2: Three - five years of dance training. 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.
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, to learn the foundations of dance. Please contact The Studio Centre before enrolling in a class level higher than prior season. Still not sure which class level you child should be placed in? Contact TSC via email: email@example.com.
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.
WHAT ARE SOME IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER?
Spring Session: 2/28 - 5/28 (12 Weeks)
Spring Break: 3/28 - 4/3

CAN MY KID DROP- IN A CLASS?

CAN MY KID WATCH A CLASS?
No. However, if your kid would like to participate in a class, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAN I REGISTER MY CHILD MID SEASON?
No. Please register your child for when registration is open for enrollment.
WHAT IS THE PRIVATE LESSON POLICY?
There are limited time slots for private lessons. Dancers who are interested in a private lesson must be enrolled in at least one ballet class. Dancers will need to write an essay explaining what inspires them to dance, and why they would like to take private lessons (no more than one typed page). 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 email@example.com 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.
