Payment:

When you register online,  you will receive a statement from us by email, indicating the total tuition owed.    If you have stored your credit card information in our secure vault, your card will be billed automatically.  You can also come into the office to pay, or call us at 503-885-0545 to provide credit card information.  You could also mail in a check along with your statement.  Please DO NOT email your credit card number to us – email servers are not secure ways to transmit that kind of information. Once you have registered, you can always log onto your account to check on payment status.

Please note that our online system does not automatically deduct early registration and multi-class discounts – we apply them before your card is billed.  The following tuition discounts are available for fall term:

  • 5% early registration discount for students who register and pay their tuition in full by the early registration deadline (September 1st)
  • Multi-class discounts of 5% for students taking 2-3 ballet classes, 10% for families with students enrolled in 4-5 classes, 15% for families with students enrolled in 6 or more classes
  • To encourage our younger ballet dancers to enroll in tap or jazz classes, we will apply a 15% discount to tap and jazz classes for students also enrolled in grade syllabus ballet classes.
