8 & 10 Week Fall Session Classes

Looking for a session of dance without signing up for the whole season? Try a fall session class! Monday classes are 8 weeks (no classes October 8 for Thanksgiving or October 31 for Halloween) and Tuesday classes are 10 weeks with no interruptions.

Please read below for class details. If you have any questions please email bendacroacademy@gmail.com or call 431-792-5678.

Prices are listed below with the class descriptions. Please add a once yearly registration fee of $35. The registration fee covers insurance and administration fees and is charged once per season. If you are already registered this season (Sept 2022 onward) you do not have to pay the registration fee again. If you join the fall session and sign up for another session later this season you do not have to pay the registration fee again.

Fall session classes are available at a 50% discount for current Bend Academy students who are already signed up for a full season class! Example: Acro students on Mondays can take Kids Intro to Dance for $75 instead of the full price of $150 and no additional registration fee since they have already paid it for the season.
