What is Advanced Registration?
NEW TO DEAS ISLAND DANCE:

In order to hold a place in a specific class for September we hold advanced registration.  Advanced registration takes place in June each year.  A deposit is taken to hold your spot in a class – $25.00 per class (2 ballet classes plus 1 jazz class =$75.00 deposit).

This deposit is applied as a credit towards next year’s fees.   If you change or drop courses this deposit is non refundable. Please note that registration is on a ‘first come first serve’ basis.  Advanced registration deposits must be received before July 15.

If you miss advanced registration, you will still have the opportunity to register through the summer (although we have more limited office hours during the summer months).  Our final registration will held late August/early September.

Registration can be completed online for existing Deas Island Dance families (please note that you cannot pay online).  There is no need to attend the studio open house evenings unless you have questions regarding your son or daughter’s classes.  Please drop off or mail in your advanced registration cheques.

What if I am interested in a course that has not been suggested for me?
If you are interested in a class, please ask.  If you are unable to make the time slot that is recommended for you let us know and we will suggest another option, or let you know if a new course opens up or the time changes.
What payment options are available?
We accept post-dated cheques or cash payment only.  Sorry, we do not accept credit or debit cards.For more information, please refer to the Fees page
When are postdated cheques due?
Postdated Cheques are due August 25th. For more information, please refer to the Fees page.
What do the letters by the course name represent?
The letters next to the course name, for instance Modern A or Jazz R, are for administration purposes only.  They do not represent age or level.  Ballet courses that have two time slots, for instance Ballet P1 and Ballet P2 must be taken together as a pair.  Students taking 2 ballet per week do one ballet dance for the year end show.  Those doing more hours of ballet may require additional ballet costumes for the year end show.
How do I register for Festival?
