WHAT IS THE REGISTRATION PROCESS?
Whether you register in person or by mail the process is fairly simple...
1. Let us know what class(es) you would like to sign up for. Please check the class descriptions (see our Classes Page) to make sure you meet any prerequisites (age, frequency, mastery of previous levels)
2. We require a current registration form for all students. If you register at the studio in person we will give you a registration form to fill out. Word Doc. of registration forms can also be found at the bottom of this page. Returning students can simply inform us of any changes that should be made to the registration form that we have on file.
3. We also need to make arrangement for payment of fees. We will let you know what the fees are for the classes you select (current fee schedule is posted below). We require a 20% deposit (to a minimum of $20) to hold a spot for you until the first day of classes. The deposit is subtracted from your total fees, and the balance can be paid in one, two, four, or 10 payments for full-year programs. Sorry, we do not take online payments or credit cards. You can mail cheques or pay cash onsite. Our preference for students who pay in installments is a series of post-dated cheques submitted with your registration form, but other arrangements are possible.
4. As soon as you have given us your class selections, registration form, deposit (if applicable), and post-dated cheques or payment arrangements - registration complete!
