CLASSES FOR AGES 10-12

Excalibur offers a fun and safe environment where students of all ages are encouraged to grow, create, and reach their full potential! Our recreational programs are built around a developed curriculum, exploring the techniques of each unique discipline. Through proper encouragement and positive guidance, students will be offered every opportunity to discover strength, confidence, and a lifelong love of dance.

[COVID-19] Studio operations have been adjusted to comply with provincial guidelines and restrictions, and a number of enhanced protocols are in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Please take a moment to examine these prior to signing up. If you are uncomfortable with any of the listed protocols (such as the mandatory drop-and-go policy), we would recommend delaying enrollment until the situation improves.

  • Select a Register link to begin your registration process.
  • The Wait List link indicates that a class has reached maximum enrollment, in which case wait listed students are given first consideration should a spot become available. Joining a wait list is free of charge. 
  • Classes displaying a blank Register column are no longer accepting new students or are otherwise restricted. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. If necessary, please contact office staff to discuss alternative enrollment options.

Upon submission of online enrollment, fees will NOT process immediately. Expect an email confirmation within three (3) business days. This will include the total amount owing, with applicable taxes and discounts. This confirmation will also schedule a date for the processing of your initial payment using the billing method provided during registration.

Numbers

When multiple classes share the same name, each class is assigned a number (in brackets). For instance, Junior Ballet (1) and Junior Ballet (2). These numbers exist only to differentiate the classes on the schedule and have no impact on student placement.

The Fall Semester

Due to the ever-changing and unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 crisis, this round of registration includes only the fall semester, a period between September and December 2020. Unless otherwise noted, classes will run for the entire semester provided minimum enrollment is maintained. As we move toward 2021, assuming the situation continues to improve, the schedule will likely expand and a new round of registration will be announced.

Commitment

Though our fall semester lasts from September to December, registration does NOT commit you to the entire 4 month period. Tuition is paid on a monthly basis. Students are free to add classes, transfer to a new class, and/or withdraw from class at any time. Important: Enrollment and billing will continue through to the end of the semester unless office staff are otherwise notified.

Fees / Monthly Tuition

Initial fees will be posted at the time of registration. Subsequent tuition fees are then due on the 1st of each month. Initial fees include the first month's tuition (prorated if necessary) and a $30 registration fee per family. Tuition fees are listed above. Listed fees DO NOT include GST, taxes are additional. Families will be discounted for multiple students/classes. Tuition is calculated based on class length and day of the week. For example: Monday classes offer fewer lessons due to stat holiday and long weekend closures, resulting in a lower tuition fee. 45 minute classes will likewise feature a lower fee compared to 60 minute classes.

Fixed Payment Plan

Tuition fees are calculated as part of a "fixed" payment plan (also known as an installment or equal payment plan). Fees are calculated by determining the total cost of the semester, minus all studio closures, divided equally across the 4 month period between September 2020 and December 2020. The registrant pays the same fee each month regardless of how many classes are attended. Note that all scheduled closures are subtracted prior to the calculation of fees, thus reducing the average monthly tuition.

Costume Fee

Due to the restrictions placed on large gatherings by the province of British Columbia, and in an effort to safeguard public health and safety during the COVID-19 crisis, there are currently no plans to organize a recital performance in the final months of 2020. As such, there will be NO costume fee charged for the fall semester. Studio management will reevaluate the possibility of a performance as we move into the spring semester of 2021.

Don't See the Class You're Looking For?

Given the realities of limited studio space, and in an effort to comply with social distancing requirements, the 2020 fall semester offers fewer classes than a regular season schedule. This is out of necessity. However, if you cannot find the appropriate skill level/age combination for the discipline of your choice, please let us know. We will do our best to add additional options in future.
