What is Soar on Saturdays?
Soar on Saturdays is a dance access program that provides young students the opportunity to explore movement over the course of a free six-week dance class. Classes meet once a week. At the end of each six-week session, students share what they have learned with parents, friends, and family at an in-studio demonstration. Class size is limited. Registration is first-come, first-served.

What if I have missed the registration deadline?
If the session is not completely filled, you may still be able to register your child. Please call the Education Department at 614-586-8629 or email to inquire if space is available.

What should my child bring to class?
Your child should arrive on time and dressed in comfortable clothes that allow for movement. There is no special attire or shoe requirement. BalletMet will do everything possible to provide the appropriately sized tap shoes for participating students in the Tap Session. Please include the correct shoe size on the Registration Form. At the end of each session, students will receive a t-shirt and pair of complimentary tickets to a BalletMet performance.

Why should my child participate in the program?
BalletMet is committed to bringing the positive influence of dance to the Columbus community. By offering students free exposure to a variety of dance styles, BalletMet’s Soar on Saturdays program strives to make the art and discipline of dance available and accessible to interested students. The Soar on Saturdays program also helps to identify highly talented students with the potential to be trained in classical ballet and other dance styles.
