Scholarships and Financial Aid
We are dedicated to providing instruction and performance opportunities to ALL students regardless of ability to pay. For dance we offer the area's only family friendly tuition, with graduated tuition rates including all siblings capped at $225/month. For families eligible for the MN state free and reduced lunch program, there are additional tuition reductions. For private music lessons and short session music and theatre classes, there is limited scholarship money available.
All boys in our Ed Parish Scholarship program study ballet tuition free, though donations are gratefully accepted to be able to continue this program and engage male guest instructors.
Guest instructors may be invited to teach master classes a number of times throughout the year. There may be a surcharge of $5-$15 per class dependent on the teacher's expertise and length of travel) to offset the additional expense.
Tuition may be paid annually, by trimester, or in nine monthly installments from September-May. These are installments of a whole and do not reflect the number of lessons in a month. Graduated tuition rates are two-tiered with an individual maximum and a family maximum. Tuition is based on a 30 week school year. Tuition payments are due by the 10th of the month.
Withdrawal from classes must be in writing by the 15th of the preceding month to be effective by the 1st. If annual or trimester tuition was paid, a refund will be given for the remaining months.
