Class Schedule

Please see the links below for Ballet Academy Ventura’s 2018-19 academic year. 
Evaluations and level placements for the new school year have been sent via email. We transitioned to Advanced 1 & Advanced 2 levels last year and this has proven to be a good move. The students work very hard and seem to profit from working together for certain classes. We want to remind you that movement in these upper levels will occur when a student’s technique indicates. Students do not automatically move to the next level after one year of work. Each of these levels encompasses several levels of curriculum.
Please check the yearly calendar as it has the dates of all the parent visitation weeks.  Please plan to observe your child in class.  The staff asks that only the Creative Movement parents come into the school hallways.  We ask all other parents observe classes on TV monitors mounted in the lobby.  Please do not discuss your own or other student dancer’s ability or body type in lobby, as we want to keep the lobby a positive place. I would also appreciate having the office notified in cases of communicable disease so that I can address this issue with the school parents.

Please review the following:

  1. Tuition: Increases are cost only.  In these difficult economic times I have kept costs down.
  2. The make-up period for missed classes is two weeks.  Office keeps track of absences; teachers will be able to mark off those using make-up classes. Please call the office to report absences due to illness so these can be recorded as sickness instead of a miss. Expired make-ups cannot be used for class.
  3. Percentage discount for prepayment of annual or semiannual tuition is noted on tuition sheet.
  4. No pro rating for missed classes due to vacation, school events or missed classes.
  5. $25 late fee will be assessed for any account 30 days past due.
  6. Classes will be suspended for any student with an account that is more than 2 months delinquent.
  7. $25 fee will be assessed for accounts paid with non-sufficient funds.
  8. Summer absences longer than 4 weeks will require re-registration fee of $25.

I ask that you remind your students to wear the school uniform with their appropriate class belt:

  • Girls-black leotard, pink tights and pink ballet slippers, class level belt.
  • Dance supplies are available in the studio office. Dancers to wear camisole, short sleeve, tank or long sleeve leotards. No leotards with open sides, halters that offer poor support or completely open backed or leotards with open lower back with bra like strap in back. These are not appropriate for BAV. If a student comes in such a leotard they will be asked to change before class.
  • Girls’ hair styles in bun for all classes and rehearsals.
  • Boys-white or black BAV tee shirt or tank, black shorts, tights or pants with white slippers with white lightweight socks.
  • Girls may wear black wrap skirt (available in office) to all rehearsals and pointe classes.
If you are unsure what level you are in, or if you have any other questions,  please notify the office as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you back in class for a wonderful year of dance!
