Attendance Policy
Please do not enroll your child unless you are confident that they will be able to make no fewer than 75% of the rehearsals (over the entire course of the session, whether 10-weeks or January through June) and as close to 100% of the performances as possible! Creating groups at the level we are attempting to achieve requires some commitment. We feel that this generous absence policy will allow those kids with other interests and projects to still be involved with them, while maintaining stability and sustainability for the group as a whole.

The tuition for the first two months of new provisional Pan Wizards and new provisional adult participants is $125. Upon confirmation into the Pan Wizards or Mystical Steel, payments are converted to monthly (yearround) of $55 per month per participant.

In our youth program, Sliding Scale/Tuition Assistance, and Full Waiver is available for qualifying families with lesser ability to pay. We also offer a 10% FAMILY DISCOUNT for families with more than one participant in the youth program. We want to reduce or eliminate financial barriers to participation in our youth program as much as we possibly can. Click HERE to inquire about our sliding scale and family discount.

For parents of new youth participants, we provide a small packet of informational documents, releases, etc. The information is important and useful, and we do need the release forms returned in a timely manner. Thank you for addressing this need.

If you have a child with developmental or learning disabilities, please read our approach to including the developmentally disabled before proceeding with registration.

Location
The location for our classes is Edmonds Adventist Church,  8625 - 196th St SW, Edmonds, WA. This location is subject to change, with reasonable notice. (Steel Magic Northwest is not affiliated in any way with the Adventist Church; we simply rent space from them).

Each class is limited to 24 participants, and the open enrollment classes are available on a first-come, first served basis. Please register as early as you can, as this not only secures your place in the class, but also helps us plan in these early stages of our organization.
