Dance Terms - for payment purposes only

To help, three smaller payments can be made throughout the year, as opposed to one large payment in October.


There are 30 weeks of dance instruction during the 2020-21 dance season. Two of these classes will be free of charge, which allows us to cancel two classes due to inclement weather or illness. You will pay for 28 weeks of instruction, with the year divided into three financial terms:


Term 1: October 6, 2020 to December 17, 2020

Term 2: January 5, 2021 to March 11, 2021

Term 3: March 23, 2021 to May 27, 2021


For students completing ballet exams, there is an additional training  period.

              Term 4: May 27, 2021 to June 24, 2021


Payments can be made by cash, cheque (payable to Emerald School of Ballet) or e-transfer (

Payment Breakdown


Costume Fee

Each child will receive costumes to wear in our Spring Showcase, held in May. We love recycling costumes and are always brainstorming ways to keep this costume fee to a minimum (and avoid a pile up of tutus in your closets). One costume can meet the needs of many dances, by switching accessories, hairpieces and gems. Expect to pay for one costume that costs between $50 and $70.  We will do the rest! Costume fees

will be due in March, 2021.
