SPRING PERFORMANCE FEE
This fee covers the cost associated with presenting the Spring Performance, including theater rental, staging, lighting, costumes and other production expenses. Generally, lower level students can expect to pay a fee of approximately $70, while advanced level students will pay a fee of approximately $105. Students who choose not to participate in the Spring Performance do not pay the performance fee. ** Note that this fee does not cover the entire cost of costuming; therefore, all costumes remain the property of Texas Ballet Theater.
Tuition is based on the class level in which the student is enrolled. Tuition and registration fees are non-refundable. Students are responsible for tuition for the entire year. Full tuition is due for students who choose not to participate in the Spring Performances. Students with outstanding account balances are not eligible for re-enrollment until outstanding payments are paid. Students who enroll after the beginning of the regular year may receive a pro-rated tuition rate. There are no credits for classes missed and no make-up classes offered. Reimbursements are not given for classes missed for vacations or school functions. Students are obligated for a full semester’s tuition even if they withdraw before the end of the session. Tuition credits may be applied to the following semester in the event students withdraw from classes due to a prolonged illness or injury verified by a doctor’s written confirmation. Texas Ballet Theater School must be informed in writing if a student decides to discontinue classes.
