Woodstock School of Ballet first opened in 1985
with a commitment to offering the community the highest standards
for dance training, and related arts. Since then, students
have thrived in a professional, caring atmosphere, learning
from some of the metro area's finest instructors.
Our philosophy is to encourage students,
in a positive environment, to be self-motivated, competing
only with themselves, and to develop a sense of personal accomplishment.
Physically, students will gain strength,
coordination, flexibility, and good body alignment from their
training. Other benefits include self-confidence, poise, good
classroom manners and just plain fun!

NEWSLETTER...Check out the newsletter archive.
TUITION…is due the first week of each month. No notice will be sent for this, but we will have monthly reminders in each newsletter. You will be billed after the 10th of the month, if payment has not been made, and a $15.00 late fee will be included. There is a $15.00 charge for returned checks. Tuition may be paid by cash or check, and you can mail this or drop it into our tuition box in the lobby. If paying by cash, always get a receipt at the front desk. If paying by check, please put your child’s name on the check if you have a different last name.
ATTIRE…is specified for each class, so please make sure you have your child outfitted properly, including hair up and limited jewelry. Put your name on all attire, and if lost, we will make sure you get it back. Don’t forget to put your name on the inside of each shoe. Dance shoes may NOT be worn outside. It is always a good idea to have a bag for shoes and accessories. Our dressing rooms can be congested at times, so if at all possible, dress before coming to class. Be sure to check the lost and found bins in each dressing room if you are missing anything!
“SNOW DAYS”…..Our policy states that if Cherokee Co. Schools adjourn for weather related reasons (snow, tornado warnings, etc.) so do we. This policy stands regardless of the weather conditions, so as to avoid last minute confusion. These cancellations are not made up, but you are always welcomed to come to extra classes to make up any misses that occur due to our schedule or yours. See the schedule for age-appropriate classes.
EMAIL ADDRESSES….Please email us at [email protected] if you need to update your email address. We will gladly send out our monthly newsletter to you, and any other pertinent information.
