Payment plan options will be available at check-out. Tuition is non-refundable. Tuition cannot be transferred, except in the case of documented illness or injury documented by a doctor's note. If a doctor's note must be produced by 4:00pm on the Friday prior to the Monday of the intensive week starting, then summer intensive tuition can be transferred into account credit to be used for future classes.
The junior intensive is geared for dancers who have been placed in Project Ballet Levels 1 or 2 for the 2023-2024 school year. New or guest students should contact the Artistic Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange for a virtual or in-person level placement evaluation.
