Registration for all Vacaville Ballet School classes is done through our DanceStudio-Pro Online Parent Portal. Registration for the Fall Term and Spring Term is accepted on a rolling basis. Once a dancer has registered, their place in class is reserved through the end of the school year unless we receive notice. Participation in productions will require a production fee. This is a separate fee from the registration fee.
Tuition for each level is calculated based on an average of four weeks of classes per month. Tuition for months that contain more or less than four weeks of instruction will not be adjusted, as these variations are considered when tuition is calculated.
New dancers will be given 1 week to determine if the Vacaville Ballet School is the right fit for them. If the VBC School does not feel like the right fit for your dancer or family, your month’s tuition will be refunded. See below.
An annual $50 registration fee will apply to each dancer for each school year. Registration fees are non-refundable and will be paid at the time of the first month’s tuition. For families with 2 or more dancers, the annual registration fees will be capped at $100.
Parents have the option to enroll in Auto-Pay through the Parent Portal. Families on Auto-Pay agree to have payments withdrawn between the 1st and the 5th of each month. No financial information is stored within DanceStudio-Pro. This includes credit card numbers or bank accounts. DanceStudio-Pro sends electronic requests to the merchant processor (Stripe) to charge a customer’s account without having to specify the financial details. This protects VBC and the customer.
Families with 2 or more registered dancers will receive a 10% discount on each dancer’s tuition. This discount does not apply to dancers on scholarship.
Tuition is non-refundable for enrolled dancers and will not be pro-rated, except for prolonged absence of 10 consecutive days or more due to documented illness, injury or emergency. Tuition will not be pro-rated for family vacations.
We understand that our philosophy and mission may not be a best fit for everyone. New dancers will be given 1 week of classes, free of charge, to determine if the Vacaville Ballet School is the right fit for them. If a dancer decides it is not the right fit, they must notify the office in writing prior to the end of the week to avoid any tuition charges.
Tuition includes participation in the end of year recital. Dancers of the VBC School are invited to participate in our annual productions, including The Nutcracker. A $100 production registration fee will be due for each dancer enrolled in the school wishing to particpate in productions. This is to cover the cost of costume maintenance, drop rentals, and other production-related costs. More information regarding commitment to and registration for the production will be distributed toward the start of each term.
Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. Tuition will be due on the 1st day of class for dancers joining after the 1st of the month.
A $10.00 late fee will be charged to all accounts outstanding beyond the 10th of each month.
A $30.00 service fee will be charged on all returned checks.
Tuition will be pro-rated for 2 weeks for dancers starting after the 15th of the month. Tuition will not be pro-rated for dancers starting before the 15th of the month.
If a student wishes to withdraw from the Vacaville Ballet School before the end of the school year, the office must be notified in writing. The notification must include the withdrawal date.
Withdrawal date 1st-15th of the month: tuition will be pro-rated for 2 weeks
Withdrawal date 16th through end of the month: tuition will not be pro-rated
