Welcome to the Acton School of Ballet’s New Student Registration page! Our online process is designed to give you quickly accessible information about our school and its programs, and enable you to register your student for the Fall 2017 term classes.

All schools have different mission statements and methods of operation. Below we offer links to printable informational pages about our syllabus, classes, calendar, tuition, required attire, and school facts. We hope you will take time to learn more about ASB and its 50-year history of excellence in ballet education.

Please Visit Us

While we now offer online registration, we also invite you to tour our studios at 3 Spruce Street in Acton. We are located in a large historic converted apple barn in the center of West Acton, tucked in between quaint local shops and cafes.

Our school is comprised of three spacious studios, two lobbies, dressing rooms, and faculty offices. Parking is available in our lower adjacent lot and also on the street. The School’s phone is 978-263-6572 and our mailing address is P.O. Box 796, Acton, MA 01720. Our email address is

Registration Basics

All classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. We follow strict class limits, so please get registration forms back to us if you seek a particular day or class. For instance, weekend classes are most popular for our youngest students and fill first.


Tuition is calculated by the total number of class meetings per week in which the student is enrolled. To see the tuition chart, click HERE. Families with three or more children receive a 10% discount.

Tuition and costume deposit (if applicable) must be paid in full, in advance of each term, by cash or check to ASB. We do not accept credit cards. Except for documented medical reasons, tuition is nonrefundable once classes have begun. ASB does not charge a registration fee. A student’s registration is not confirmed until payment has been received. An email is sent out to confirm enrollment, once registration and payment are received.
