BBT does not automatically charge credit cards.
Following registration, a dancer's enrollment is confirmed by the Artistic Staff. Tuition fees are posted to the family account via the JackRabbit Class Portal. Once updated, account contacts will receive an email from the BBT office outlining payment options and methods. Please respond to this email by either logging into the JackRabbit Class Portal and submitting the appropriate credit card payment or by bringing a check, payable to "Berkeley Ballet Theater" to the BBT office; confirmation of payment submission is expected within five (5) business days of receiving this "BBT Enrollment Confirmation" email.
BBT lists total annual tuition and a minimum monthly payment on enrollment webpages.
Dancers whose accounts are in arrears will not be allowed to enroll in future sessions or workshops until the balance can be cleared or until a personalized payment plan can be organized through the BBT office.
BBT's seasonal tuition values, prorated values, and tuition assistance values are determined by:
(1) a Level-specific hourly rate;
(2) a normative weekly schedule from which an hours-per-week value is derived by adding Level-specific and Syllabus-specific hours-per-week values;
(3) a thirty-five week season.
Each week in BBT's thirty-five season may be dynamically adjusted by artistic staff.
BBT expects minor schedule alterations and adjustments to be determined by artistic staff on a daily basis; these adjustments do not affect tuition calculations.
BBT expects schedule modifications due to holidays, rehearsals, and inter-institutional opportunities such as auditions to be determined by artistic staff on a seasonal basis; these adjustments do not affect tuition calculations.
BBT will base emergency closure on dancers' health and safety. In the event of an emergency closure, BBT will determine and communicate make-up class schedules to affected dancers.
Late start: Tuition is prorated on a weekly basis; a dancer's tuition begins the week (Monday-Sunday) they join the Youth Division. Where a dancer joins mid-week, they may take make-up classes equivalent to any classes missed that week.
Schedule modifications: Where schedule modifications have been approved by artistic staff, tuition is prorated by subtracting modified hours for the agreed upon number of weeks from the standard tuition calculus.
In the event a dancer is injured or is required to miss a significant amount of class due to an unforeseen event, BBT will develop an individualized prorate plan with the dancer and family. BBT does not prorate missed classes due to vacation, school trips, or other planned events.
BBT reserves the right to update these policies at any time and without notice.
