Do you have a competition team?

Balance Dance Center is not a competition school. We encourage students to strive for personal excellence while celebrating collaboration and artistic expression through dance. Dancers reap the rewards of their hard work through personal growth and advancement. Performance opportunities are available for dancers who would like to challenge themselves and pursue dance more seriously.

What are your class sizes like?

Class size at BDC averages at 10 students per class. No class is larger than 20 students. We pride ourselves in knowing every student and fostering a warm, nurturing, and connected community of dancers and families.

How much do classes cost?

Please visit our pricing page to learn more.

How do I register my child?

Please call the studio and/or register through Dance Studio Pro here.

What if my child wants to discontinue classes?

We are sad to see any dancer go, but to discontinue classes, simply notify the studio by email before first of the following month. Tuition charges will continue through June unless notification is made in writing. Charges made without notification will not be refunded since we have reserved a spot for your dancer in class.

When is tuition charged?

Tuition is charged on the first of every month through Auto Pay.

What happens on snow days?

BDC typically follows the snow day protocol of the Downingtown School District. Parents are always notified via text and email of snow day studio closings.
