Review the policies for our dance school.
The fall semester runs for 13 weeks, ending with our "Nutcracker" performance, tentatively scheduled for December 1st & 2nd. There are 12 weeks of lessons at Ellenwood and 1 week of "tech" rehearsals at Bedford High School. 3 holidays are observed (NO CLASSES): Labor Day, Halloween, & Thanksgiving.
Tuition can be paid in full at the start of the semester, or divided into 3 monthly installments. Payments can be made in person before class by cash or check (payable to "Cleveland Modern Ballet") or online HERE.
Students are expected to attend all required classes for the program in which they enroll. Occasionally, classes will be cancelled for illness or weather. Cancellations will be posted on our Facebook page: facebook.com/clevelandmodernballet. Students can make up these missed lessons by attending classes in adjacent levels. Make-up classes are the student’s responsibility.
Students should be enrolled for the entire semester to perform in the December show. The performance is optional, but all students are encouraged to participate. If the student chooses to do so, she/he should audition and attend all rehearsals. There will also be a week of “staging” & “dress” rehearsals for a full week preceding the show.
The semester is preceded with auditions on Friday, August 11th for our December dance production, "The Nutcracker." In lieu of the audition fee & required ticket sales, this year there will only be a flat production fee of $100 (per family) due on audition day. This will cover all production expenses (including costume use) and gives you 10 ($10) tickets to sell or gift to friends & family. Students with unpaid fees on audition day will not be cast.
ALL STUDENTS PERFORMING IN THE "THE NUTCRACKER" MUST ATTEND TECH/PERFORMANCE WEEK:
NOVEMBER 26TH-DECEMBER 2ND, 2017 AT BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL FROM 4:30 PM-8:30 PM
A few notes about our school:

- Sibling tuition is always 50% off and parents dance free, to encourage active, healthy families!
- Costumes are provided for all students to use during performances.
- Pointe work requires at least 2 classes/week to gain the necessary strength and is typically for girls ages 11 & up. This class is invite only.
