Fees are not based on the number of classes per calendar month but are based on annual costs, payable monthly for your convenience. Like a gym or health club, we require fees to be paid every month, September - May. If you choose to take a month off, you will be asked to pay the registration fee again.

Students may not participate in the recital until tuition is paid. Recital is Saturday, May 13, 2023 (11am; 8:30am rehearsal) at Wortham Center.

Three snow days per class are figured into costs. After that, we will schedule make-up classes. Advanced classes may offer a Zoom option instead of a snow day.

Missed classes may be made up in other disciplines, or by observing advanced classes.


Classes are subject to change depending upon enrollment. 


Grades and ages serve as a starting point for class placement; instructors may choose to move students to a class they deem more appropriate. 


Please bring your own water bottle, and arrive in your dance clothes under your street clothes. Water fountain and dressing rooms will not be in use. 


Parents and siblings will wait in their cars during classes (but family members may of course use restrooms inside). 

Face masks are optional at this time. Please do not attend class if you have cold symptoms, or if anyone in your household is currently positive for COVID. Dancers may be asked to wear a mask if they are coughing. 

Classes will end 5 minutes before the stated end time, so students can wash/sanitize their hands, retrieve their belongings, put on their shoes, and leave via the back door, where parents will retrieve them. 


Full COVID guidelines available here, via email, and are included in large part in the online registration form:



Needed for recital: Women - black leotard, black wrap skirt, pink tights, and pink slippers.

Men - white t-shirt, black tights, black slippers.

Non-binary and gender fluid dancers - wear what makes you most comfortable.
Otherwise no color-coding by level. Just look like a dancer! 
Please wear long hair pulled back in a bun or similar style.

We are closed for classes when Asheville City Schools are closed for weather (or have a remote learning day due to weather) OR release early due to weather (**See note below regarding Monday and Thursday Zoom instead**). We are open as usual when Asheville City Schools are open on a delay. If Asheville City Schools cancel some or all afternoon activities, we will plan to be open, and if we have to close (if conditions are dangerous!), we will be in touch via email regarding our weather decision. Anytime we close for weather, we do try to send an email as well as to post on our website and our Facebook page (, Twitter (, and Instagram ( to make sure there's no confusion, especially regarding Saturday classes. If you’d like to keep up with the Asheville City Schools’ cancellations yourself, as well, their inclement weather hotline is 828-350-6188, and they also post to their Facebook page: and usually to the WLOS school closings listing.

**Important note: For our Pilates and Advanced Ballet and Pointe classes (currently on Mondays and Wednesdays), if Asheville City Schools close for weather (or have a remote learning day due to weather), or release early for weather, we will plan to have classes via Zoom! We will be in touch via email to confirm that this is happening, but virtual days will be our default plan for Monday Pilates/Ballet/Pointe and Wednesday Ballet/Pointe during our Fall 2022 session!**
