- New students will fill out a new student form right before their trial class at the studios. Students under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign the form.
- A trial class is free for students under 18 years old; however, if a student decides to register, the trial class will count as your first class towards tuition. We do not offer a free trial class for adults older than 18 years old.
- Bay Ballet Academy does not charge for a registration fee!
- New students can enroll and begin attending classes at any time during the scholar year.
- The Academy welcomes students of all ages, sizes, and skill levels. We are open year round and we keep the same schedule through the summer as well.
