HOW TO REGISTER:

  • Please visit our website rigbydanceconservatory.com for information about tuition, dress code, costume fees, competition and performance dates, payment information, studio policies, etc. 
  • Returning dancers register through your Parent Portal. Select the new season, add classes, and pay your registration fee. Be sure to attend Placement Day to be placed on the appropriate team(s). 
  • Dancers that are new to our studio will register here and create a Parent Portal Account, add classes, and pay your registration fee. Dancers with previous ballroom experience will attend Placement Days, new dancers won’t attend. See info below. 

NEW GIRLS:

Girls that are new to our studio need to register with a boy that’s also new to our studio. 

  • He needs to be similar age and ability level so you can be on the same team (PreTeens Age 9-12, Jr/Yth Age 13-17) (Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced) 
  • This is just for our boy/girl ratio. Everyone on the team changes partners and dances with everyone.
  • Make sure that when he registers he lists YOU as the person who referred him.  
  • It’s totally fine if he’s brand new and has never done ballroom, we’ll teach him! 
  • It’s ok if the boy is dancing with another company and registers with Dance Conservatory as well. I’ve spoken with the other coaches and we’re ok with sharing boys. We just need to communicate carefully throughout the year to make it work. 

TEAM PLACEMENT DAYS:

*Everyone with previous ballroom experience needs to come to Placement Days. Those without ballroom experience don’t need to come to Placement Days, we know you’re a beginner and will place you accordingly.

DISCOUNTS ON TUITION FOR 2022-2023

We’re offering several discounts this year! You can use the “Refer a boy discount” -OR- the Family Discount, whichever is greater. 

  • FAMILY DISCOUNT – Families with three or more dancers receive a 10% discount off your monthly tuition.
  • “REFER A BOY DISCOUNT” –  Refer a new boy that registers at our studio, and you’ll get $10 off your tuition every month for the entire 2022-2023 season! We need more boys soooo badly! Thanks for your referrals and help! Here are the details and rules:   
    • He can be brand new to ballroom, have previous ballroom experience, be dancing with another company and dance with us as his second company, all boys and all ability levels are great!
    • Boys should be age 9 -12 for our PreTeen Team, age 13-17 for our Jr/Yth Team, or be a teen or young adult for our Special Needs Show Team. 
    • Make sure that when he registers he lists YOU as the person who referred him. He should enter your name on the registration form when asked how he found out about our studio. You should also text or email me to make sure you get the proper credit for registering him.  
    • It still counts towards your discount if he’s your brother! As long as he didn’t dance with us this past  year. 
    • Boys don’t need to be the same age or ability level as you to count towards your discount. (However, girls that are new to our studio are required to register with a boy of similar age and ability level in order to be admitted onto a team).
