Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?

All of our Registration is done online. CLICK HERE to access or create your customer portal for online registration and payment. (Please note that registration fee is due at time of registration; September tuition is due by September 4th). If you have danced with us before but never signed into your portal click 'Forgot my Password' and then type in the email associated with your PAC account. 

Which Level should I choose?

If you are a current student and your teacher has not approached you about moving up levels we ask that you register for the same level as last year. Please note that we have students 3-18 years old and only 6 levels so all dancers will be in the same level for multiple years in a row. If you are a new student and have questions please follow the level guide on the schedule and email dance@pacificartscomplex.com with any additional questions. 


How do payments work?

All tuition and fees are done via AutoPay. When you register you will need to pay your registration fee and add an active credit or debit card on file. Not having a card on file means you are not technically registered for the class. All tuition fees run on the 1st of each month. 


What happens if I'm on waitlist?

Don't panic! There's a lot of movement in the beginning of the year and the majority of people on wait lists end up getting into the class they want. We also create new classes or move classes to bigger rooms to help facilitate the needs as they arise. If you are on a waitlist you will automatically be moved up the queue as people drop or move classes. Once your spot has opened up you will receive an email notifying you that your dancer has a spot in the class.   Please do not attend a class for which you are waitlisted. These classes have waitlists because they are at capacity and when non-registered dancers attend it's confusing for teachers and parents.
