Tacoma City Ballet School
PTacoma City Ballet endeavors to provide excellent comprehensive classical ballet training for dancers in the Puget Sound Region. A carefully graded syllabus, comprising the technique of the Danish, English, French, Italian, and Russian schools of classical ballet is taught. Contemporary techniques are also included in the curriculum to strengthen the body, encourage flexibility, and correct anatomical issues. Performance skills are taught from a young age through creative class exercises and participation in the annual School Demonstration.
Enrollment: Tacoma City Ballet has ongoing enrollment throughout the year. Limitations in December and May. Please contact the Tacoma City Ballet School Office for details.
Tuition: Tuition is based on enrollment, not attendance. Our months go from the 15th to the 15th of each month, and tuition is due on the 15th of each month. For example, October tuition is due on October 15th and covers one month from October 15th to November 15th. Tacoma City Ballet also collects first and last months’ tuition upon enrollment, therefore there is a minimum 2 month commitment. Please see full Tuition Policy for details.
Dress Code: There is a required uniform for each class level. Please review the Dress Code page or visit The Dance Collection (in Tacoma or Federal Way) to determine what dress code your dancer requires.
Drop Off/Pick Up: Due to fire code regulations, we are not allowed to have people waiting in the building. Parents/Guardians may wait with their dancers (Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet and Pre-Elementary only) on the landing at the top of the stairs until they have been escorted into class. After that, parents/guardians must leave the building unless they have received permission from Miss Erin or Miss Leah to wait in the dressing room. Elementary 1 dancers and older must wait in the dressing room until the teacher or teacher’s assistant takes them to class. Parents/Guardians may return for pick-up no earlier than 10 minutes before their dancer’s class lets out. While waiting before or after class, there is no sitting or eating allowed. Please keep babies and toddlers quiet, as there are classes in session.
