Do students have to audition to be accepted into the program?

  • For the Primary Program classes (Creative I, II, & Preparatory I), students are welcome to join a class at any time, space allowing. Placement is determined by age.
  • For Preparatory II & Ballet Level IA, students may join at any time before the third quarter, space allowing and in consultation with the director.
  • For Ballet Levels IB through VI, students must have previous training and will be assessed by the director for placement in the appropriate level. Placement is determined by ability, not by age or level at a previous ballet school. Students who have been placed en pointe in another program will be assessed for consideration to study pointe work, as well as for placement in the appropriate level at Dance Fremont.
