  • Online Account Management
    Paula Brown Performing Arts Center offers our dance families an online account management software system for your convenience. Families can log in to their account to view and print their schedule, track their absences and makeups, update credit card or bank account information, and more!
  • Where to Register
    Returning Customers: If you participated in last summer's dance session, this dance season (whether active or have dropped), or have registered for this summer's dance session – you will click on Parent Portal Login. New Customers: If you are new and do not fall in one of the above categories, please view "How To Register" below, where you will see our class schedule organized by program level. Click on the program level you are interested in to see the schedule for that level; this makes it easy to view all the classes included in your monthly tuition payment.
  • How to Register
    1. Click 'Register' from the main menu. 2. Fill out the information requested (fields with asterisks are required.) From there, you will also be able to choose additional classes and add other students. 3. A credit or debit card or a bank account is required for registration. 4. If a class is full, you will see the word "Waitlist" instead of "Register." To be entered on the waitlist, please click that button, and proceed. You will be required to enter payment information; however, no payment will be made on the account unless a spot becomes available. If a spot becomes available, we will contact you regarding enrolling in the class.
  • How To Use The Parent Portal
    After you are enrolled in a class, you can use the Parent Portal. You will create a Parent Portal account by entering the email address and portal password you provided at registration time. If it is your first time visiting your portal and you do not have or do not remember your password, click Forgot your password. A password will be sent to the email address on file with us. Use that to log in to your account. From there, you can change your password–just make sure it has a minimum of 8 characters, 1 of which must be a number.

All accounts that sign up online are automatically set up for e-payment and authorize PBPAC to use account information for all account billing (including registration fee, tuition, costume fees, late fees, recital fees, and other studio or dance-related items purchased on an account). After the 5th of the month, a $35 late fee will be charged and enforced on all accounts past due, including e-payment accounts. Late notices will be sent via email.

  • What are parent groups?
    Parent groups are located under the "Studio Info" tab in the main menu. Organized by division, parent groups are dedicated spaces for parents, dancers, instructors, and PBPAC admin to share information specific to each level. The groups are similar to listservs but feature Facebook-like capabilities.
  • Do I need to join a parent group?
    If you presently have a dancer enrolled in courses, joining the parent group for your division allows you to send and receive messages from the site as well as other parents. You can add yourself to your parent group by clicking the "Join" button for the division in which your student is enrolled.
