Fall Session 2020

It has been a tremendous effort for Ballet Hawaii to weather the closure of both our Honolulu and BH West location due to Coronavirus. With your help and participation, we've succeeded in ways we could not have imagined. For the safety of our students, parents, staff, and teachers, and, due to the fluctuating COVID-19 numbers, Ballet Hawaii's facilities will remain closed until further notice.


Fall Session will begin August 16, 2020 on Zoom and will run until November 7. We will be moving forward on a month-to-month basis, reassessing our safety at the end of each month, and determining whether we can open the studios safely.


Our Board of Directors takes Ballet Hawaii's mission to heart - to teach, present, promote, and produce dance in Hawaii. They are determined that we maintain the highest standard of teaching while also maintaining the health and safety of our staff and students.

Tuition will be charged in 4-week increments to ensure an easy transition back to in-studio classes when the time comes.  Please refer to the table below for tuition by level.


Tuition for classes Aug 16-Sep 12 is due Tuesday, Aug 11

Tuition for classes Sep 13-Oct 10 is due Tuesday, Sep 8

Tuition for classes Oct 11-Nov 7 is due Tuesday, Oct 6


*A late fee of $25 will be charged after tuition due dates*

*Late fees will be waived for the first 4-week increment provided tuition is paid by Saturday, August 15*

  • Please sign in at least 5 minutes prior to the start of your class - with your own name - so the teacher may take attendance.
  • With the understanding that it is hot, you are permitted to wear stretchy shorts in place of tights/skirt if desired.  Please see the dress code tab for more information on appropriate attire.
  • If the device you are logging in on has a camera, please let it on for the entirety of your class and position it so that most of your body is visible.  If your teacher cannot see you, they are unable to give individualized feedback.
  • The chat feature is to be used to communicate with your teacher only, however, whenever possible, please raise your hand and unmute yourself to communicate with your teacher unless it is a private question.
  • If you are having technical difficulties, please respectfully let the teacher know, but understand that it is not possible for the teacher to help troubleshoot all technical issues.  You may need to grab a parent to help you.
  • Just like your in-studio classes - no gum chewing or snacks.  Water is allowed.
  • Teachers expect students to behave as they do in the classroom - respectfully, no yawning, no leaving the room unless given permission, appropriate dancewear as possible, no talking, no chatting to other students during class.
Students may make up missed classes in the level below their current level. All make ups must be completed before the current session ends.
