For students in our Sept-May program, we offer three payment options: 9-installment, 2-installment, and 1-installment. 9-installment payers are billed at registration and on the 1st of the month October through May. 2-installment payers are billed at registration and Jan 1st. 1-installment pay one lump sum for the whole year.

Payment for any workshop is due at the time of registration.

Please note that our performance fee for the Spring Showcase is $40 and is billed November 1st for 9-installment payers. Each class participates in the Spring Showcase and this fee applies to any dancer that wishes to perform.

What are my payment options?

My dancer has a conflict in the spring. Can’t we just stop dancing in January?

Outside of short-term workshops, our dance program runs from September-May. We require students to make a 9-month commitment, since we develop and build on dance concepts throughout the year. To complete a dance level, students need to attend classes weekly and commit to the full length of the program. This allows our instructors to build both the understanding and ability to execute technical elements of dance at the same pace for all balletmore students, ultimately helping each dancer improve in their dancing abilities.

We would love to work with you and your dancer if your schedule is changing. Just give us a call.

If you know your dancer cannot commit to our 9-month program, our workshops offer dance instruction with a short-term commitment.

We do not offer refunds after classes have begun and parents are responsible for completing payment for the expected duration of the class.

What is a workshop and how is it different?

A workshop is a short-term course that runs for 6-9 weeks and whose students do not perform in our Spring Showcase. Workshops are ideal for students who do not want to commit to a progressive technique class, but still want to dance! Students are encouraged to participate in consecutive workshops if they are enjoying the class - each session is a little different.

Can I watch my dancer?

The studio has windows outfitted so parents can watch their dancer from outside the room. Please keep in mind that this can be very distracting, especially for younger dancers. December is “Parent Watch Month” where parents are encouraged to come in and view the last 15 minutes of class.

We are located on the corner of Burton and Breton behind the Panopoulos Salon. Please don’t hesitate to call or text us at (616) 284-1322 if you are having trouble.

How do I get
to balletmore?

As a general rule, if a dancer has never taken any dance classes before, they would be placed into an age-appropriate class. For example, a 7-year-old dancer would be placed in Ballet Age 6-7 and a 4-year-old would be placed in Ballet-Jazz Age 4-6. If your dancer has experience, we would schedule them for a placement evaluation. There is a $20 new student placement fee that applies to new students ages 8+ entering ballet levels. Please call to schedule the evaluation.

If you just don’t know which classes your child should take, please give us a call at (616) 284-1322. That’s what we’re here for!

How do I know which class is right for my dancer?

For all workshops in the same session, buy one and get the second one 1/2 off!

We also offer 30% off workshops for college students with valid ID.

What discounts do you offer?
