Tuition is automatically billed on the 5th of each month and entitles you to attend your selected class once per week. Because billing is monthly, and some months have more than 4 weeks, this will simply result in 4 free classes per year, but your tuition bill will remain the same.
Tuition is billed at the rate of $165 for each 90-minute class, $108 for each 60-minute class, and $60 for each 30-minute class. For example, if you take a 90-minute Ballet Technique class on Monday nights, your tuition bill will be $165/month. If you take two 60-minute Low Impact ballet classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, your tuition bill will be $216/month.
Ballet requires commitment, regular attendance, and dedication in order to make progress. Additionally, each class progresses together week-to-week, so being in class is important to keep up and continue improving. However, we totally understand that as adults, life can be busy: you, your kids, your parents, or your pets get sick; you go on vacation; you get stuck at work; etc.
Any missed class can be made up with a comparable class within 60 days of the missed class. Due to the nature of the small and finely grouped classes, we can’t guarantee that a makeup class will always be available immediately, but will do our absolute best to find you a comparable class.
If we don't have a class that fits your schedule, the amount of the missed class can either be applied towards a private lesson, or you can also save up missed classes until you have enough to qualify for a private lesson. 3 hours of lesson time equals one hour of private lesson time.
Please use our Makeup Class Finder to let us know about any classes you'll miss and find a makeup.
We love when you refer your friends to take ballet classes! When your friend purchases a class or lesson, you’ll receive a $50 credit towards your next tuition bill. Click here to learn more.
Locked door and keycode
The studio door remains locked. This will help ensure that we can safely leave our belongings in the hallway, and that we will not be interrupted during class time.
When you arrive, please use the keycode located in your appointment confirmation email or that was given to you by Broche Ballet.
If you’re the first one there (even before the teacher), that’s totally ok! Just let yourself in and make yourself comfortable. There is a lamp in the hallway right by the door, and the main lights are in the studio itself on the black pillar between the glass windows when you walk in.
At Broche Ballet, we understand that holidays can be a time to travel, or they can be a time to take extra ballet classes with your time off from work! Holidays can also be stressful, and ballet class can be a reprieve from that stress. We are always pleased to offer flexible options over the holidays. Over holidays, all normal classes will be cancelled and, in as many cases as possible, replaced with optional mixed-level drop-in classes up to 4 dancers. Your tuition bill will not include any of the canceled classes, and drop-in classes will be purchased separately. Drop-in holiday classes to be announced as we get closer to each holiday.
Holiday closure dates:
Memorial Day weekend Sat/Sun/Mon May 26th-28th
Wednesday July 4
Labor Day weekend Sat/Sun/Mon Sept 1-Sept 3
Veterans Day weekend Nov Nov 10- Nov 12
Thanksgiving weekend Wednesday - Sunday Nov 21-25

If a your schedule changes, or you would like to change to a different class for any reason, simply let us know of your desire to move and your new availability, and we’ll suggest options for you. We’ve got a lot of classes, and people’s schedules are always moving around, so we can always find you a new spot if the one you have isn’t working for you.
You can use our Makeup Class Finder to check the schedule for comparable classes for you to switch to.
Cancelling or pausing your tuition
When life is just too busy for ballet right now, or in the case of injury, let us know and we’ll pause your tuition payments until a time when you’re ready to re-start. When you’re ready to pick back up again, let us know, and we’ll find a spot for you. Depending on how long of a break it was, and the available openings in classes, we may have your old spot open, or we may recommend a new spot for you. Or, if you no longer want to take classes at all, we’ll cancel your tuition payments after you’ve taken the classes that you’ve already purchased.
Substitute teachers & canceled classes
If your teacher needs to miss class for any reason, we’ll find a substitute whenever possible. In the event that class needs to be cancelled, you will be credited the amount for the missed class on your next tuition payment.
