HIGHLAND

*** 2019/20 PRE-REGISTRATION! Sign up before August 1st, receive a 15% discount on September 2019 tuition fees.

A fun-filled class where students learn the traditional and national dances of Scotland. Highland teaches self-discipline, confidence, and motivation, making Highland one of the best training grounds for a successful life. An ancient form of dance that requires a great amount of stamina and strength, Highland is still extremely popular throughout the world.

Upon submission of an online registration form, tuition fees shall be posted to your account. Fees will NOT process immediately. Within three (3) business days, you will be notified via email of the amount owing, including any additional fees and discounts. Initial fees will then process on a date indicated in the email confirmation. See below for detailed information regarding tuition, costume, and registration fees.

INTRODUCTORY (No Experience Necessary)
PRIMARY
TECHNIQUE (Beginner to Premier)

Skill Levels/Placement

Selecting a highland class can be somewhat confusing, as it is often difficult to judge which skill level is the most appropriate. Student placement can be tricky, as numerous factors must be considered. If your student has no prior experience, please select the age appropriate Intro class. If you are unsure of which class/level to enroll in, please contact the studio for assistance.

Age Ranges

Highland classes are less structured in terms of age. Beyond the introductory level, a student is placed based on their experience and knowledge of specific dances. While some classes feature age ranges, others do not. Again, should you have any questions, please contact the studio for assistance.

The Season

The 1st semester of our 2019/20 season begins on Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019. The 2nd semester begins on Monday, January 6th, 2020. The season ends on Saturday, June 20th, 2020. Unless otherwise noted, classes run the entire 10 month season provided minimum enrollment is maintained.

Commitment

Though our season lasts for 10 months, from September to June, registration does NOT commit you to the entire season. 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 season unless office staff are otherwise notified.

Fees / Monthly Tuition

Initial fees are due at the time of registration. Tuition fees are then due on the 1st of each subsequent month. Tuition fees are listed above. Initial fees include the first month's tuition and a $30 registration fee per family. There are no costume fees associated with highland classes. Listed fees (tuition and registration) DO NOT include GST, taxes are additional. Families will be discounted for multiple students/classes.

Equal Payment Plan

Tuition fees are calculated as part of an “equal” payment plan (also known as a “balanced” or “averaged” payment plan). Fees are calculated by determining the total cost of the season, minus all studio closures, divided equally across the 10 month period between September 2019 and June 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.

(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.
