What are tuition payment options?
All payments can be made via cash, check (made out to Raise The Barre), or electronically via Venmo (@RaiseTheBarreDuluth) or PayPal.
If choosing the monthly payment option, payment must be made by the 9th otherwise a $10 late fee will be added to your account.
We strive to be available and accessible to everyone. If making a monthly payment is struggle, please contact us for some financial aid options.
Where can I park?
There is open street parking on both sides of Grand Ave along with our side lot that is against the building. Please pull in and park on a diagonal to allow more parking availability. On the side of the building there are signs that states ‘Permit Parking Only’. This is only because the building was vacant for so long. There is an apartment upstairs of the studio that is currently occupied so please do not park in front of/block the garage that is located directly behind our building.
What if my dancer misses a class?
If your dancer needs to miss class, a make-up option is always available! Just please reach out to us for your options.
If for some reason, we must cancel a class – a special make-up class option will be provided.
(For our younger dancers, please let them know that this isn’t a class where they get to put on make-up. The confusion happens way more than you’d think!)
Can I watch my dancer’s class?
Due to our location’s open and very acoustic space we ask that parents come in and drop off their dancer and then pick up promptly at class dismissal. However, for our younger levels, we will attempt to host a parent observation week later in the school year.
What is your weather-related cancelation policy?
We live in northern Minnesota where the weather is SO unpredictable. Last year we followed ISD 709s school closings and it proved to be more work since we could have had class many of those snow days. This year we will be making the call to cancel classes due to weather by 1 PM on weekdays and by 7:30 AM on Saturdays. These cancelations will go out via email and social media. So if weather is questionable that day/morning please check these sources.
Do you provide virtual class options?
We want to be completely inclusive and will be offering virtual classes in tandem with the in-person classes. If you chose to be virtual only, please make sure that your dancer has the internet capability, proper space for a class, and that the video feed can make sure we always clearly see the dancer from head to toes! If your child isn’t feeling well, please know that a virtual class option is ALWAYS available.
