Due to the generous support of our donors and sponsors we are able to offer scholarships to many of our students in need. If your family qualifies for reduced lunch under the Federal School Lunch Program guidelines, then you qualify for a 25% scholarship one class or set of related classes (i.e. Ballet 5 M/W, Ballet 4/5 Sa, and Pointe, or Group Strings and Theory, etc.) and if you qualify for free lunch under those guidelines then we can offer a 50% scholarship on one class or set of related classes. Contact our office for details.

We also offer a limited number of scholarships for other circumstances. These scholarships can be applied for and are reviewed on a case by case basis. Please contact our office for details.


We offer several payment options to fit your family's needs.

1. Pay for the entire school year or summer session with a single payment.

2. Make two installments, one in the Fall and one toward the end of Winter.

3. Auto-pay, which automatically deducts monthly payments from checking, savings or credit card accounts. We accept all major credit cards.

4. Payment agreement, which is not automatic but requires payment for the next month on the 15th of the previous month.

5. If these options present a hardship for your family or don;t work with your unique situation, please contact our office to make alternate arrangements.
