TRUST & SECURITY FAQs
I'm ready to enroll, now what?
Great! We are so excited you have chosen Ascend Studios for your dance education. The first step to enrollment is to create a Parent Portal with our management system DanceStudio PRO. Go HERE to begin online registration.
What is the annual Membership Fee?
Our annual membership fee is similar to a 'registration fee' and during open enrollment periods, that fee reserves your space in a class. Being a member has a lot of additional perks as well. Members can take advantage of early enrollment for any new season. Members also receive membership pricing on camps, workshops, events, and masterclasses. Plus, we have special members-only events several times a year.
How much is tuition?
Our tuition is paid out in monthly installments that are generally $52.00. See our TUITION & POLICIES page for more detailed information.
Are you an Epic Charter Schools Vendor?
Yes! Ascend Studios is an Epic Charter Schools Vendor.
What should we wear to class?
Ascend Studios has a general 'black & pink' dress code for most ballet classes: black or pink leotard, and 'pink' or skintone tights and shoes. To see what to wear in all types of classes, download our full school dresscode HERE
How do we know what Division or Level our student should enroll in?
We try to keep it simple, but sometimes there are questions about which class would be best for your student. Below are some guidelines but we recommend you contact us to chat about your child's placement if you have any doubts about which class would be best!
When is open enrollment / beginning of the Season?
Ascend operates similarly to our local schools, with our main season running August - May/early June and our Summer season running June-July.
Do you have classes for adults?
Yes! We love to have classes for adults. Our adult classes usually run in a "series". 6 weeks, 8 weeks or 10 weeks of classes. The best way to stay up-to-date on our adult class offerings is to check out our FB page events HERE for all the details on any current class series being offered.
What about performances/recitals?
Our dancers work hard all season to learn new skills & the technique needed to execute them. We love to show them off at our annual spring recital!
What is Ascend Dance Ambassadors?
Our Ascend Dance Ambassadors are a performance group designed to give students more opportunities to hone their skills & perform. Our mission is to take our art into our communities to 'do good'. We perform for community events & benefits regularly each season, & our students reap the rewards of those experiences both on and off the dance floor.
