Sibling Discount Policy

Families with 2 or more students enrolled at Ballet Hawaii will receive a 10% discount on each additional child’s tuition (full price tuition to be paid on the highest price tuition, excludes open classes).



If a student is late they are expected to warm themselves up and ask the teacher’s permission to join class.



If a student must be absent from class, Ballet Hawaii requires a parent/guardian to email the Front Desk staff with the excuse PRIOR TO the start of the missed class for the absence to be recorded as “excused”. (Phone calls are accepted, but preferably an excuse in writing). If an absence notification is received during or after a student’s class, it will be recorded as simply an absence. Only excused absences are allowed to be made up. (Please refer to “Class ‘Make up’ Policy” below).


What is an “Excused Absence”?
An absence is considered “excused” in the event of:
• Student is ill/injured
• Graded school activity/event
• Family emergencies
• Family vacations
• Natural disasters
and the BH front desk staff was notified of the absence prior to the start of the class.


*Ballet Hawaii takes ALL absences into consideration when casting major productions like The Nutcracker. Attending ballet class is necessary for a student’s progression and maintenance as a dancer. As excused absences are allowed to be made up, it is important that a valid excuse is provided.

Class “Make up” Policy

Students may make up missed classes in the level below their current level at the school in which they are registered.  All make ups must be completed before the current session ends.  (Exception: Spring Session – no make ups are allowed as our students will be rehearsing their dances for our Spring Showcase during their class time)
