Open Classes For Teens & Adults
TPB While We Build
If you've ever been involved in a construction project, you know the truth of the truism, "If any thing can go wrong, it will." Delayed construction means dancers and staff will not have access to lobby space, dressing rooms or restrooms at 6250 SW Capitol Hwy until the expansion is complete.
At TPB Studios, Studio B is our temporary lobby, Studio A will hold all Open classes and high-end portable restroom facilities are available for your convenience. We have also rented a studio and small office two miles west of TPB -- in the same dance space we used very successfully this summer.
Open classes are available six days a week, for the beginning to professional dancer, ages 13 and up. All Open classes at The Portland Ballet are taken as a 'drop in'.
Students must complete a Registration/Liability Waiver Form prior to taking any class at TPB. Professional dancers: to receive the Professional Rate, please complete the Professional Dancer Information Form and return it to the front desk. This form must be reviewed and approved before the professional rate can be granted.
Student ID Card
Each student will receive a ID Card that must be presented and scanned at the front desk at the beginning of each class which will keep track of attendance and accounts. If a dancer does not have their ID Card, they will be charged $17 for the class and may not use any multiple class options as listed below. Lost cards can be replaced for $5.
PaymentClasses can be paid either as a drop-in rate of $15/class or the following options are available:
Attendance is tracked by the student's TPB ID Card. Student/Professional Rate is $12/class. Class cards are available for $55 for five classes (equals $11/class) or $100 for 10 classes (equals $10/class). Students, please show your College ID to receive the Student Rate. High School students are not eligible to receive the Student rate. Professional dancers will need to fill out a form and get it approved before they receive the Professional Rate.
Checks, cash, VISA, and MasterCard are accepted. A $20 fee will be charged for each returned check.
Casual dance attire is recommended: leotards, t-shirts, tights, jazz pants, ballet shoes, jazz shoes.
