Admission and Tuition Rates
New students or their parent must interview with the School Administrator in person before joining the graded program. Students are placed in the Ballet most appropriate for their age. Each division is designed to meet the instructional needs of students according to their Ballet of development. This ensures that the teaching of technique and the building of stamina and discipline parallels the physical and emotional readiness of the child.
Students eligible for Ballet I - VII who don't want to enroll in the full Preprofessional Program may opt to participate in the Youth Program Option II. This program offers students the same high-quality instruction as the Preprofessional Program without the commitment to attend the complete schedule of classes for their division.
This is an excellent option for students who wish to pursue ballet on a recreational Ballet, or who have multiple school and family responsibilities. Students will still be eligible to perform in Western Ballet productions, but should not expect to receive soloist or principal roles, which require substantial commitment of time and energy.
