ENROLLMENT is open to students age 4 and up. We do not require an audition for entrance. Dancers age 4 through 8 are placed in our program according to their age. Dancers age 8 and up with previous experience will be assigned an evaluation class, in which the instructor will make a formal level placement. All of the curriculum in our Professional Program is required for each level. We encourage serious students to take additional classes below their level as well and offer these free of charge.
A WAIVER MUST BE SIGNED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN PRIOR TO FIRST CLASS. See right side bar for a downloadable waiver.
FIRST CLASS IS FREE. Each of our programs offers a free trial class, and we encourage new students to take advantage of this to make sure our academy is right for you. Please contact our registrar to arrange your first class, whether it be a trial class or an evaluation class. Once you have been placed in the proper level for your ability and desires, you may formally enroll in the program.
PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM is for students age 8 and up and is strictly designed around our professional syllabus. Students are groomed for a career in the field should they have that interest and ability. The program requires an annual registration fee of $75.
PREPARATORY BALLET PROGRAM (Pre-Ballet and Primary levels) is for young dancers age 4 through 8. Pre-Ballet classes are for students age 4-6 and Primary is for ages 7 and up. The program requires a $50 annual registration fee.
ADULT AND TEEN PROGRAMS are our drop-in ballet programs. Although consistency will build more strength and skill, these classes do not require a long-term commitment. They are taught by our professional faculty, but are much less demanding and more recreational in atmosphere. Students are welcome to drop in when they can, and are only charged for classes taken. Teen students are required to pay a $50 annual registration fee.
