Multi-Class and Sibling Discounts

In order to enhance the development of our young actors, we offer a 20% discount for each additional class a student takes. Our schedule has been configured in a way that offers more opportunities for our students to take multiple classes. In addition, we give a 10% discount for each additional sibling who participates in classes. (The deposit for each class is not discounted and discounts will be applied to an equal or lesser value class.)

If you are eligible for a discount AND wish to pay in full for the semester, please register and pay the deposit for each class at this time. In the registration form, you’ll be able to alert us and we’ll send you an invoice for the tuition balance with the discounts applied, including the payment in full discount.
