Consistent attendance is important to ensure the success of the student's dance education and his/her performance on stage.
Absence from class is not refundable and should be made up in a lower level class. In the event of an absence a courtesy phone call is appreciated. Classes canceled by instructors due to inclement weather or illness will be made up in rehearsal time.
A registration form is required for every student at the start of each year.
While Rockland School of Ballet aims to offer small class sizes so that students receive individual attention, we reserve the right to cancel any class that does not have 4 registered students. In the event of this happening, registered students in will be placed into another class.

Tuition is an annual fee, based on a full school year, which will consist of 30-34 classes held from September through June. Tuition, based on the total number of classes from September to June, is due in full at the start of the year, or paid in installments. Some months (especially those with school vacations) may only have two or three classes, while others may have five, and most will have four. The no-interest installment amount remains the same. For students entering after September, the tuition rate is the same, based on the number of months left. If paying in monthly installments, the tuition payment is due at the end of the preceding month. All students will have class tuition agreements done by signed contract. A new contract will be necessary if classes are added or subtracted from a students' schedule.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Cash or Check. Student accounts must be paid in full in order to register for new sessions (including new school years, and all summer workshops).
Discounts are given for additional family members, or additional classes. As the number of classes per week increases, the overall hourly rate decreases.
There is a non-refunable annual enrollment fee of $25.00 for returning students and $30.00 for new students. Additional students within a family are $5.00.
There are no refunds for missed classes, and students with an outstanding balance will not be admitted to class.
A twenty dollar ($20.00) charge will be added to any returned check, and all accounts 30 days past due will be assessed a ten dollar ($10.00) late fee every 30 days until paid in full.
2017-2018: Rockland School of Ballet runs on a 28 - 34 week school year, allowing for vacations and 4 snow days or other cancellations, and commits itself in advance for facilities and services which are essential to its operation. Classes are on-going and progressive from September through June, and students will perform in the winter and spring for family, friends and community.
