Instructions for registering for a specific level

For new students who have filled out the registration form from the link above or for returning students, you are now ready to register for a specific class.

Please first choose a studio location: Portland or West Linn. Next, choose the specific class for which you would like to register. After clicking the “Register here” button for the class section you’ve selected, you will be taken to our online registration database. Please fill in the information in the “New to our site?” section and create your account. Please add family members, such as the child(ren) you are enrolling and any additional parents or guardians for that child.

In the “Make a Reservation” screen select the option to make reservation for “Someone Else” and enter the child’s name you are enrolling.

When selecting payment, you will have the option to pay the registered child’s tuition in full (payment in full is required for Pre-Ballet tuition) or to enroll in the monthly auto-payment plan by selecting the Deposit option. The auto-payment plan is available only for Children’s Beginning Ballet through OBT2 tuition. By selecting the Deposit option you agree to allow The School of OBT to place your tuition balance and associated finance charges on the auto-payment plan, detailed in the SOBT Tuition Payment Schedule. The first payment or deposit will be charged at the time of enrollment and auto-payments will be charged monthly for two months, beginning on the original date of purchase, to the credit/debit card you used to pay the tuition deposit.
