How to Register for Classes
We encourage you to register for classes through HPSD's online registration portal, ClassBug. With ClassBug, you can register at your convenience, chose a payment option, track classes, receive notices, and make changes to your profile. HPSD's schedule in ClassBug can be viewed as a list by dance style (default), or sorted in calendar view. Just follow the instructions to register.
You may also register in person during open office hours.
Registration is processed on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend enrolling early as classes fill up quickly. To ensure students receive individual attention, class sizes are capped between 8-20 students depending on type and level. If your desired class has a wait list, we advise you to add your dancer's name to it since spots often open up.
The schedule is subject to change based on class demand and local COVID-19 requirements. For more information on the precautions and procedures we are undertaking to make studio dance safe, take a look at our COVID-19 Studio Guidelines.
Registration for Tyego Next Generation (TNG)
If you have a dancer that auditioned for and was accepted into the TNG Studio Company program, your registration works a bit differently. Instead of enrolling in individual classes, you should select your dancer's assigned Company package. In addition to automatically enrolling your dancer in twice weekly Company classes and rehearsals, within the package you select classes to fulfill each of the three Company requirements - once weekly ballet, non-ballet, and conditioning classes - and may also select up to five elective courses for a special reduced rate (elective courses can include pointe and variations classes as well as additional ballet and non-ballet classes). Click here for more information on the TNG Studio Company program and the date of the annual audition.
Registration for Students Taking Pointe Classes
Dancing en pointe is an exciting right of passage for ballet dancers and requires a high level of commitment in order to train safely. Because of this, pointe dancers must obtain permission from HPSD's Artistic Team to dance en pointe and enroll in the Pointe Program package, which ensures dancers are attending at least three 90-minute ballet classes a week in addition to their pointe class. The requirement applies to three weekly ballet classes attended anywhere so please get in touch with the office before enrolling if your pointe dancer attends additional ballet classes outside of HPSD before registering with the Pointe Package. For more information on qualifying to train en pointe, see our Pointe Readiness Requirements.
Registration for Scholarship Recipients
The HPSD Scholarship program is central to our mission of making dance education affordable and accessible. Needs-based scholarship funding is available for students 7-18 years old and awarded on an annual basis with the audition and application process occurring during the Winter/Spring Session. Scholarship awards are applied as a set percentage deduction on the recipient's tuition for an entire year from July-June. When registering for classes online, scholarship recipients should enroll using the no-money-down 5-payment plan or get in touch with the office before checking out so that their award is applied correctly. See our scholarship page for details on the audition and application process as well as the expectations associated with participating in the program.
HPSD makes every effort to keep its tuition affordable while still offering the superb dance training and performance opportunities that have benefited decades of dancers.
Class-specific tuition rates are listed on our Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer Schedules and on ClassBug, our online registration portal.
Tuition Policies (Children under 18)
Fall and Winter/Spring session tuition reflects the full session cost for 16 once-a-week classes. Rates are determined by class length (30-90 minutes). Classes can also be purchased in a package of required and elective courses for TNG Studio Company and pointe dancers (both by permission only, see TNG Company and pointe program information).
Summer tuition rates for regular classes are purchased for 4-week sessions. The Summer program also offers separate pricing for intensives, workshops, camps, and summer-only drop-in cards for dancers under 18.
Tuition must be paid in full or scheduled on a payment plan upon registration. You can pay online through ClassBug or in the office with a card, cash, or check. There is no registration fee.
Scholarship auditions are held once a year during the Winter/Spring Session, and needs-based awards are granted for the following academic year from July-June. Please visit hydeparkdance.org/scholarships for more information!
