HIGHLAND

A fun-filled class where students learn the traditional and national dances of Scotland. Highland teaches self-discipline, confidence, and motivation, making Highland one of the best training grounds for a successful life. An ancient form of dance that requires a great amount of stamina and strength, Highland is still extremely popular throughout the world.

  • Select the appropriate "Register" link to begin your registration process.
  • The "Wait List" link indicates that a class has reached maximum enrollment, in which case wait listed students are given first consideration should a spot become available. Joining a wait list is free of charge. 
  • Classes displaying a blank Register column are no longer accepting new students or are otherwise restricted. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. If necessary, please contact office staff to discuss alternative enrollment options.

Skill Levels/Placement

Selecting a highland class can be somewhat confusing, as it is often difficult to judge which skill level is the most appropriate. Student placement can be tricky, as numerous factors must be considered. If you are unsure of which class/level to enroll in, please contact the studio for assistance.

Age Ranges

Highland classes are less structured in terms of age. Beyond the beginner level, a student is placed based on their experience and knowledge of specific dances. While some classes feature age ranges, others do not. Again, should you have any questions, please contact the studio for assistance.

The Season

The 1st semester of the 2017/18 season begins on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017. The 2nd semester begins on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018. The season ends on Saturday, June 16th, 2018 (the date of our final recital performance). Unless otherwise noted, classes run the entire 10 month season (September to June) provided minimum enrollment is maintained.

Fees

Initial fees are due at the time of registration. Tuition fees are then due on the 1st of each subsequent month. Initial fees include the first month's tuition and a $25 registration fee per student. Listed fees (tuition, costume, and registration) DO NOT include GST, taxes are additional. Families will be discounted for multiple students/classes.

Did You Raise Your Rates?

No! Per class rates have not increased. However, 2017/18 offers more classroom time than any previous season. Students will receive anywhere from two to five additional classes compared to 2016/17 (dependent on day of the week), resulting in a slightly higher average tuition fee--see "Equal Payment Plan" for more info. Our costume and registration fees also remain unchanged.

Equal Payment Plan

Tuition fees are calculated as part of an “equal” payment plan (also known as a “balanced” or “averaged” payment plan). Fees are calculated by determining the total cost of the season, minus all studio closures, divided equally across the 10 month period between September 2017 and June 2018. The registrant will pay the same fee each month regardless of how many classes are attended. Note that all closures are subtracted prior to the calculation of fees, thus reducing the average tuition.

Numbers

When multiple classes share the same name, each class is assigned a number (in brackets). For instance, Junior Ballet (1) and Junior Ballet (2). These numbers exist only to differentiate the classes on the schedule and have no impact on student placement.
