Tippi Toes Dance Company® begins with warm-ups and stretching exercises as well as activities that encourage boys and girls to use their imagination. We then introduce ballet, tap, jazz, or hip hop techniques using dance terms and examples to enhance their knowledge of the art. We incorporate our original dance music to further their dance experience. During each class, we instruct the children on dances which will be performed at various times throughout the year. We offer different types of classes depending on the age of the dancer.


Monthly Fee: Ranges from $50-$65
If you join mid month our system automatically prorates. Registration fee: One time fee of $45 during school year includes our Tippi Toes welcome packet/ gift. Classes are weekly with an average of 4 classes per month. View our schedule page for times and locations.

What’s the cost?

Most of our classes have a $45 registration fee (once per school year) and class tuition is between $50 and $65/ month. All registration and payments are done online. (With the exception of La Petite Academy schools and the Pelham Rec Center) For families with more than one dancer, the first registration fee is $45 and any additional registrations fees will only be $15.  For those families, there is also a savings on tuition. 

Dance Attire

Tippi Toes Dance Company® encourages each dancer to wear comfortable clothing that he or she can easily move around in. For children 3 and older in public classes (Chelsea Community Center, Pelham Rec and North Shelby Library), we ask dancers to wear leotards and tights. Ballet slippers are required. Please write your child’s name in the inside of all shoes. Somebody will be there to help your dancer slip out of their school shoes (if needed) and into their dance shoes. No tap shoes are needed. We stick to the soft-soled shoes since each location is graciously allowing us to use their facilities — we don’t want to scuff their floors. Ballet slippers will be available for purchase and may be delivered right to class.  *Tippi Toes registration/ welcome pack gift is part of registration.
