Youth Ballet Classes
To help ease the financial burden of returning to pre-pandemic expectations for class attendance, UI Youth Ballet students who enroll in Levels 3, 4, or 5 will receive one of their required weekly classes free of charge for academic year 2023-2024. Similarly, pointe students will have one of their three weekly pointe classes included at no charge for academic year 2023-2024.
