Regular attendance is essential for proper dance development. There are no refunds for missed lessons or holidays. You may make-up a class, missed for any reason, by attending another class suitable to you. The make-up class list is available on the Studio Calendar page.


We appreciate that as parents you want to show support for your dancer and watch their growth. One positive thing that we have learned during covid is how to livestream observation classes rather than have parents and siblings crowded into the dance rooms. Welcome to our new inovative and convenient alternative to in studio observation!

The Band app is where we will be livestreaming each of our classes during what would normally be observation week. Click on the link provided to join our Band page via mobile app or desktop site. The best part of the livestream feature is that if you are unable to log on and watch the class live, the video will be posted for you to watch at a more convenient time, and it will be available for 30 days. 

When joining the band page please make your profile name match what we have on your Silverton Ballet account. That helps us ensure that only registered families are receiving access, and help us direct you to the correct class content.

To protect the privacy of our students as well as the creative content of our staff, we ask that you do not share or repost any videos.

 Observation days will begin in November and will be the first lesson in November and December. Also the first lesson in February, March and April. 



Silverton Ballet will follow the guidelines set by Silver Falls School District. If school is closed due to weather issues, we will be also. During 2 hour delays, we will be open as usual.


Silverton Ballet will present a children’s musical theatre production in early June. There are also many performance opportunities at local events through out the year.

  • All accounts must have a credit card on file to be used for tuition and all other account expenses.
  • A student may enroll by completing a registration form and paying a non-refundable registration fee ($30.00 for one student or $35.00 for a family).
  • All tuition is payable in advance and is due on the 1st of each month, no later than the 5th.
  • There will be a $10.00 late fee charged to all accounts paid after the 5th.
  • Tuition consists of a fixed monthly charge, based on the # of classes a student/family is enrolled in. This means occasionally there will be 3 or 5 weeks in a month. 5th week classes are in lieu of classes missed due to holidays, thus the monthly charge will not change throughout the year. 
  • Any class missed for any reason may be made up in another class.
  • In order to drop a class, the studio must be informed either by phone or email. There will be no refunds if class is dropped after tuition has been paid for the month. Simply not showing up for class is insufficient as notification. Tuition will continue until personal notification has been made. 
  • Tuition is non-refundable.
  • There will be a $20.00 charge for all returned checks

Studio communication

SBPAC uses electronic forms of communication; email, text, parent portal, studio website, and occasionally facebook and instagram. Studio calendar, make up list, and many other informational documents are housed on this website, please check here first for any questions. Please be sure that your information is correct in the danceworks parent portal and that you have opted in to receive texts. It is also helpful to commit to regularly checking for communication.

Tuition Schedule

Class pricing is based on the amount of time that a student is dancing per week, not the number of classes they are attending. For instance, if a student is taking 1 one hour ballet class, and 1 one and a half hour jazz class, that student would be dancing two and a half hours per week, at a monthly cost of $113.00. When multiple family members are taking class, the hours are calculated collectively. As an example, If one dancer is taking 1 one hour class, and their sibling is taking a 45 minute class, then the family is dancing one and three quarter hours per week, at a monthly cost of $82.00.
