How many students are needed to have a class?

How are classes paid?
Galaxy accepts all major credit cards, cash and personal checks.
Galaxy youth sessions follow the AISD school calendar, each consisting of 5-7 classes are, and are $60 per session. The first class of each session is drop-in friendly, allowing students to try the class for $15 with no commitment. If the student would like to continue for the rest of the session, the remaining $45 will be due at the second class. Multiple class rates are also available. Tuition and class passes are not refundable, except in the event of class cancellation.
Galaxy is a drop-in friendly studio, but we do recommend registering and paying online to make your check in easier. You may purchase each class separately, blocks of classes (5 or 9), or unlimited monthly dance passes.

Each classroom at Galaxy has an observation window so that prospective students and parents can view classes. There may be some classes that prefer to have a closed session so please call and confirm before observing a class.
What performance opportunities are available through the studio?
Students perform throughout the year at Galaxy Open House and Showcase events. Additionally, we invite parents, friends, and family members into the classroom during the last class of each youth session for special "show-offs" where the students will perform the material they've been working on throughout the session.
Will I be required to purchase costumes?
