Tuition, Registration Fee, and Recital Fees 2019-20
Music & Movement classes for 3 year olds - $125 for each 10 week session, in addition to the annual registration fee.
There is an annual $15 non-refundable registration fee per student, with a $25 non-refundable fee for families with two or more students.
Tuition is based on a full school year from September to May. Some months (especially those with school vacations) may only have two or three classes while others may have five in a month's time. Tuition is based on the total number of classes from September to May, so the no-interest monthly installment amount remains the same.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Cash or Check. A $20 fee is charged for returned checks. Student accounts must be paid in full in order to register for new sessions (including new school years, and all summer workshops).
Recital Costume Fee
Costumes are ordered for all students in classes which participate in recital. All students are responsible for costume charges unless they choose to withdraw from the class mid-year. Maine State Ballet must be notified by December 15th if students are withdrawing. A charge of $65 ($75 for levels A, B, C, D, E, Beginner Pointe, and Intermediate Pointe) is due by December 15th for each costume.
If a student wishes to drop a class prior to the end of the session, prompt notification is required. All withdrawals are effective as of the date Maine State Ballet is notified. Students/families are responsible for tuition until that time.
