  • 40-minute Ballet Technique class, once per week

Tuition is posted monthly (September - April).


Dancers in this level enroll in and attend one of these class times per week.

Age is the only requirement for this level. No prior experience is required.

Buttercups wear a yellow leotard (girls). This specific color can be found most readily on discountdance.com or Amazon.

Boys in co-ed classes can wear a close-fitting t-shirt in the level color or in black or white.

All levels wear:

  • level-specific color leotard
  • pink ballet tights
  • pink ballet shoes
  • hair fully secured for class - ballet bun, neat and smooth
  • optional: a single-layer dance skirt or close-fitting pair of shorts

See dress code for more information on this policy and to view all levels.

In the spring semester, dancers will learn one recital dance during their weekly class to perform in a recital in April. One Saturday dress rehearsal (usually 1-2 weeks before recitals, depending on how Easter falls) is the only commitment outside of consistent class attendance that is required for the recital.

Recital costume fees are now factored into tuition rates. There will be no additional costume fee in the 2023-24 Season.
