Schedule & Classes
  • Which class do I need to take?
    First, select a class according to age, experience, and level, and register by referring to the schedule. After receiving the uniform from the first class and teaching, the teacher will notify you if you need to move to another level. If not, you just have to keep coming to the selected class. ​ GO TO schedule&classes
  • Can I take drop-in class before registration?
    Yes, you can take one drop-in class. You may pay and book a class in this website, or you can contact to book and pay at the studio. You may decide to enroll after the drop-in class.
  • How to register / enroll classes?
    You can register directly through the site. If you have any questions, please contact For new students, there is one-off registration fee ($80 as of Mar. 2022).You can either pay at the studio or we can send you an invoice. Depending on your class If you're being enrolled in regular ballet classes (Petit Ballet, Ballet I~IV),you can make annual payment or pay monthly installments If you're being enrolled in adult ballet classes (incredible morning class, etc)you can purchase a 10-lesson package
  • What is Monthly Installments (Monthly Plan)?
    Monthly installments or Monthly plan is to pay annual program in multiple installments: one installment in a month.  ​ It is conceptually different from typical monthly plan which buys a certain number of classes per month. All the regular ballet classes in Victoria Ballet, other than adult ballet classes and private lessons, are annual programs along with academic school year. Students pay the tuition at once before the school year starts, or pay the amount equally for each month.  ​ For example, if tuition of a ballet class of 2021-2022 school year is $950, you may pay at once before the school year starts, or pay $100 monthly from Sep. 2021 to June 2022 (10 months, the monthly tuition is slightly higher as it include processing fee) ​ If you're enrolled in the mid of school year, you will start paying monthly installments from the month you joined.
  • Why the number of classes per month varies in a monthly plan?
    Our monthly plan is not to buy a certain number of lessons per month, but to pay an annual program in multiple(10) installments. Therefore, depending on national / local holidays and Victoria Ballet Studio vacation, the number of classes can vary by month. Yet, don't worry, ballet training is not just counting the number of hours of lessons, but more holistic one. Our teachers have a view and plan of each of you, how to move forward to the next level.  
  • Why a school year is 10 months? What do we do in the remaining 2 months?
    Good point. Those 2 months are usually in summer and many people's schedule change. We usually open Summer Intensive courses and Summer Camps. The plan for summer program will be announced between Feb. ~ June. 
  • When the recurring payment processed?
    If you're enrolled in monthly installments(Plans), the tuition is processed on 25th of each month for the following month. If you're enrolled in 10-lesson packages such as incredible adult ballet and private lessons,  the tuition of the next 10-lesson package will be processed on the day the last lesson of the current package is taught,  ​ If you're not enrolled in automatic recurring payment, you may come and pay at the studio on the due date. Please note that there's late fee if the payment is delayed more than 7 days.
  • How to cancel plans? What is the refund policy?
    Basically, every purchase is non-refundable. If you're enrolled in monthly plan and want to stop, please let us know via​ before 25th to stop the further recurring payment. * Refund is not possible for any reason unless notice is given one month before the payment date (the 25th of each month) If you're enrolled in 10-lesson packages and want to stop, please let us know before the last lesson of the package is taught.
  • How to schedule a make-up class?
    If you're going to be absent for the class, please let us know at least one day before the class. Then, we will try our best to find a make-up class for you. Absent notice on the same day or just no-show will not be followed up by a make-up class. Please understand that make-up class arrangement is not always possible, because it requires that teacher's schedule, your schedule, and class capacity should be all aligned. However, we will try our best to arrange it.
