Registration is now open for the 2018-2019 season.
Student class placement is based on the evaluation and not prior level. Placement is determined at the discretion of the evaluators and directors.
Registration is required before attending placement. Placement in appropriate/required levels will determine if the dancer will continue in all classes selected. If the level requirement is not met after placement, students may not be able to continue in certain classes.
Please view our Schedule page for placement dates and times.
Placement class is NOT necessary for beginner students, those under the age of 7, and anyone enrolling in beginner level classes. Beginner students may register for any (age appropriate) Beginner, Beg/Int, or All Level (AL) classes. Most of these beginner level classes take place at our 65th St. location.
If your class requires placement, it will be noted on the schedule and also when you register.
If your student has dance experience but you are unsure of his/her level, register for the class titled “Ballet Int-Adv Placement” and/or “Jazz Int-Adv Placement” (for ages 7-18) Your student's level will then be determined by attending placement class.
Both new and returning students are required to attend placement if his/her class requires it.

The average class size has 18 students. We must have a minimum of 7 registered students in order to hold a class.
Occasionally, classes may exceed 18. These are generally in our more advanced levels for older students. Classes for ages 3-6 years have an average class size of 15 students.
Our annual program is a 32-week commitment from September-June. To best support your child’s training, CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED.
It is imperative to your child’s success that this program is viewed as a serious commitment.
Children who work professional jobs are allowed a total of 6 absences for the season. If absences exceed six, they will be asked not to participate in the showcase, but may continue classes. Written proof documentation of the job must be given to Allie Beach prior to the job’s start date. The 6-class extension only applies to documented jobs. Absences for auditions are discouraged.
Annual students are entitled to two make-up classes for the season. Parent/Guardian must email [email protected] (W45) or [email protected] (W65) to coordinate a make-up class. All make-up classes must be scheduled within two weeks of the missed class and be within the same genre and level of dance as the original class. If a W45 student needs to make-up a class, they may be requested to do so at our W65 location. W65 students are required to do their make-up class at W65.
Are you trying to decide which class to register for? If you are still undecided, we invite you to participate in a trial class! Come try a class of your choice for a fee of $35. If you decide to then register for that class, your trial fee will be deducted from your tuition!
In order to ensure a quiet learning atmosphere and environment where our students can concentrate without distraction, observers are permitted only on Observation Day. View our Calendar for the exact date.
Should you have any questions regarding your child’s class or training, you may always email or call us.
We end our 32-week season with a captivating showcase at a prestigious New York City Theater. The showcase gives students the chance to display what they have learned throughout the year. All students are expected to participate in the Showcase.
There are additional fees for Showcase and each costume due in December.
