Entry into the School for students age 8 and above is by audition only. Students ages 12-18 should be at a stage of technical advancement proportionate to their age and have the physical qualifications suited to the demands of classical dance. Twelve year olds should be dancing at least 4 days per week and must already be training on pointe.
