Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know what level to apply my child for?
Since classes for that age group are popular we ask that you make an appointment with the school coordinator for you and your child come in to observe or take a placement class.
We will confirm a specific date based on the school coordinator’s availability. You will be required to register by going to www.ballethawaii.org clicking on SCHOOL & CLASSES and then click on My Account. Then create a new account. If there is a waiting list for that class your child will be placed on the list and will be let in according to the date they came to observe the class or filled out an online application.
For students over 7 – 16, (experience or no experience) they will be required to take a placement class.
How do I sign my child up for classes?
The class tuition including a non-refundable registration fee must be paid to confirm placement in the class.
