  • I'm ready to enroll, now what?"
    Great! We are so excited you have chosen Ascend Studios for your dance education. The first step to enrollment is to create a Parent Portal with our management system DanceStudio PRO. Go HERE to begin online registration. Prefer to register in person? That's fine! Contact us to set up a time to stop in and complete enrollment.
  • What is the annual Membership Fee?
    Our annual membership fee is similar to a 'registration fee' and during open enrollment periods, that fee reserves your space in a class. Being a member has a lot of additional perks as well. Members can take advantage of early enrollment for any new season. Members also receive membership pricing on camps, workshops, events, and masterclasses. Plus, we have special members-only events several times a year. Membership fee must be paid at time of registration to reserve your place in a class.
  • How much is tuition?
    Our tuition is paid out in monthly installments that are generally $68.00 for any student enrolled in one class per week. See our TUITION & POLICIES page for more detailed information about all of our tuition, payment & other policies.

Ascend Studios carries & stocks dancewear from multiple retailers and can help you outfit you/your student for class right in the studio with teacher approved dancewear! *We DO encourage dancers of different skin tones to match their shoes and tights to their own unique color. Contact us to find out how.
  • How do we know what Division or Level our student should enroll in?
    We try to keep it simple, but sometimes there are questions about which class would be best for your student. Below are some guidelines but we recommend you contact us to chat about your child's placement if you have any doubts about which class would be best! Our philosophy is that we want every student happy, dancing, challenged but not overwhelmed - and growing! This means we do sometimes make exceptions for students when it comes to our Divisions (which are by age), and our Levels (which are by skill). We have several class DIVISIONS separated by AGE: Foundations Division: ages 2-5 years Primary Division: ages 6-8 years Elementary Division: ages 9-11 years Youth Division: ages 12-18 years Adult Division: ages 19 and up Any class that is listed without a level designated is an 'all levels' class! Beginners are welcome. Level II classes and above may require special permission/placement to enroll. Generally, our Level II classes are for intermediate level students. Our Dancing Two's & Dancing 3's classes cater to our tiniest dancers ages two and three. Foundations classes are for ages 4-5 only. Level I is for beginners, or those age 4. Level II is for 2nd year students, mostly age 5.
  • When is open enrollment / beginning of the Season?
    Ascend operates similarly to our local schools, with our main season running August - May/early June and our Summer season running June-July. Open Enrollment for a new season will generally open in the preceeding May. Open Enrollment for a summer season is generally up for online enrollment in March.
  • Do you have classes for adults?
    Yes! We love to have classes for adults. Our adult classes usually run in a "series". 6 weeks, 8 weeks or 10 weeks of classes. The best way to stay up-to-date on our adult class offerings is to check out our FB page events HERE for all the details on any current class series being offered or contact our office for more information!
  • What about performances/production?
    Our dancers work hard all season to learn new skills & the technique needed to execute them. We love to show them off at our annual spring production! Generally held the first week of June each year, our production is a special affair & an important part of any dancers training. Additional cost is involved to participate in production, see the current Season's Parent Welcome Packet for up-to-date information, or contact our office.
